The care and kindness formerly and still showed and taken by Col. Wm. Kendall on the bahalf and for the orphans of Emanuel Hall dec'd is still by the court desired by him to be continued in the enquireing into and settling of that stock belonging to Grace Peasons, the youngest daughter of Anne Peasons dec'd(sic), the wife of Eustace Peasons and formerly of the said Emanuel Hall and to signify the same to the next court. This day Emanuell Hall by and with the consent of his guardian John Fathrey bound himself an apprentice to John Brewer, Smith, which the court took recognisance of and order to be put upon record. (NOTE: Evidently the "dec'd" after Anne Peasons name was an error and probably should have been placed after Emanuel Hall's name which followed her's, as she was obviously the wife Eustace Peasons at this time.)6

Will - Father's*19 October 1709Thomas was named in his father's will on 19 October 1709 at Somerset Co, MD. He was shown as my son Thomas Raly (under age 18) in the will of Lawrence Rily, wife Tabitha.1 
Anecdote*1723 Thomas was listed as a tithable in Bogerternorton Hundred in 1723 (Somerset County Court, Maryland, tax lists 1723-1759 (MSA C1812); 1723 household #67) living in the household of his step-father Robert Hill (Barbara Massey Horsman, The Massey Family of Worcester County, Maryland). A young man was taxable at 15 years of age.

Reginald 'Renoles' Badger1

M, b. 1662, d. before 30 November 1748
Last Edited2 Jul 2015
Birth*1662Reginald 'Renoles' Badger was born in 1662.2,3 
Anecdote*6 February 1672/73 On 6 Feb 1672/73 Richard Bayly's servant boy named Reynold Badger was judged to be 11 years old.2 
Anecdote27 May 1679 On 27 May 1679 deposition of Reignald (sic) Badger aged about 17 years: About the end of January, Richard Hovington (who, along with Badger, served Mr. Richard Bally at the time) was about to fell a large pine that stood near a new forty foot tobacco house. He asked Badger which way he thought the tree would fall, but did not wait for a reply; Hovington said the tree leaned toward the branch and about sunset went to work felling the tree. The next morning Hovington shifted the notch to the other side, then with the wind blowing hard and the tree almost down, Hovington cried out, "I am undone, I am undone." Badger advised Hovington to let the tree alone "for it will go upon the house." But Hovington answered, "No, no," and kept felling till the tree was down. Signed 27 May 1679, by Reignald (25) Badger.3 
Headright*18 February 1690He was named as a headright on 18 February 1690 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as Reynold Badger on a certificate granted to Mr. Richard Bayly for 700 acres of land.4 
Anecdote8 November 1690 On 8 Nov 1690 Mary Turner was presented for fornication and having a bastard child. Mr. Richard Bally, her present master, confessed judgment for her fine. Ordered that he pay the 500 lbs tobacco to the church wardens; in return Mary was willing to serve her master according to law. Upon being examined in open court, Mary Turner swore that Reynold Badger was the father of her child. Ordered that he be taken into custody till giving security to answer at the next court.5 
Anecdote*18 March 1690/91 On 18 Mar 1690/91 Mary Turner swore that Reynold Badger was the father of her bastard child. Now Badger appeared with Richard Bally, who acknowledged himself as security to save the parish from supporting the child. In exchange for Richard Bally providing the above security, Reynold Badger gave to Bally's daughter Elizabeth the child born to Mary Turner. The child, named Ursula Turner, had turned one year old on 16 March; she was ordered to serve Elizabeth till attaining lawful age. Also on this same date Mr. Richard Bally had been allowed 600 lbs tobacco from last year's parish levy for six months' nursing of Mary Turner's bastard child, of which Reynold Badger was the reputed father. Now Badger acknowledged judgment for the 600 lbs tobacco "and tendered payment immediately, having kept tobacco at ye said Mr. Richard Bally's, where he made his crop." Ordered that the sheriff receive the tobacco from Badger and be accountable for it at the next parish levy.6 
Marriage*circa 1692He married Mary James, daughter of David James and Joan (-----), circa 1692.1 
Land bought*1693Reginald 'Renoles' Badger bought land in 1693 at Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that Reynold Badger bought 150 acres of tract A64 from Edmund & Elizabeth Scarburgh, it being the northwest of the Bayly land and extending along the western bounds of the tract. In 1748 Reginal Badger left to his son Jacob, who died intestate in 1754, leaving a widow Ann and a son John as heir-at-law. In 1784 John Badger, wife Elizabeth, also died intestate; no heir was indentified, and in some undertermined way the property came into the hands of Brown Bradford, who in 1795, wife Peggy, left the same land to a son John Brown Bradford.7 
Anecdote20 November 1696 On 20 Nov 1696 Reynold Badger was granted a judgment of 415 lbs tobacco against Samuel Beech, who denied that 70 lbs tobacco was paid to Robert Taylor (presumably for Beech). Since Badger could not prove the 70 lbs, Beech was ordered to pay 415 lbs tobacco and court costs.8 
Headright5 April 1698He was named as a headright on 5 April 1698 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as Renald Badger on a certificate granted to Mr. William Bradford for 600 acres of land, 7 rights being by assignment of Maj. Richard Bally and 5 in his and the said Bradford's own right.9 
Guardian - named as*4 September 1711Reginald was named as a guardian on 4 September 1711 at Accomack Co, VA. David Taylor, orphan of Thomas Taylor, chose Renals Badger for his guardian. The court approved and ordered Badger to take Taylor's estate into his possession after giving security.10 
Anecdote2 April 1712 On 2 Apr 1712 it was recorded that at the last court Regnall Badger (guardian of David Taylor, son of Thomas Taylor, deceased) brought action against John Wylie (administrator of the estate of Thomas Taylor), who asked to answer at this court. When he failed to answer, Badger's attorney (Mr. Phillipson) moved that an account be given of David's estate. Badger chose Capt. Henry Scarburgh and Wylie chose Mr. William Burton; they were both ordered to state the account and other matters in dispute and report to the next court.11 
Marriage*circa 1740He married Bridget (-----) circa 1740.12 
Will*27 September 1748Reginald made a will on 27 September 1748 at Accomack Co, VA. To son Jacob Badger plantation where I now live. To son John Badger land bought of Morris Shepherd. To Frances Badger. To Leanna, the daughter of Frances. Daughter Anne Moore. To daughter Rachel Lurton's 2 children, Henry & Hannah. Daughter Sabra. To Joseph Gunter.

Death*before 30 November 1748He died before 30 November 1748 at Accomack Co, VA. The will of Reginald Badger (decd) was brought in for proof; ordered that David Badger (heir at law), who resided in Northumberland County, be cited to contest the proof at the next court. His will was probated on 27 Dec 1748. Stephen Harrison was appointed guardian to the heir-at-law.13,14

Heir - named as*20 February 1720/21William was named as an heir on 20 February 1720/21 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as grandson-in-law (meaning step-grandson) William James in the will of William Parker. He was given planation where I now live containing 200 acres. According to Whitelaw, this was the 200 acres William Parker had bought from Tabitha Hill in 1703. In 1757 James gave 100 acres to his son Thomas. In 1764 William and Amey James sold 50 acres to James Twiford, to become merged with some adjacent land of his. In 1765 William James (wife Amey) left his home plantation of 109 acres to his son Thomas, who (wife Sarah) died intestate in 1783. (NOTE: This William Parker had married the widow Sarah Spiers, who had a daughter Mary who married Jonathan James of Accomack and she had another daughter Sarah who married William James of N'hamp. Evidently both of these daughters had sons named William James. The assumption is that the land went to the William James of N'hamp as his father William in his will of 1715 named a friend William Parker to see to the proper care of my children's estate during their minority. This William Parker also named David James another son of his friend William James of N'hamp.)3,4

Anecdote*2 July 1919 Edgefield Advertiser, Edgefield, SC, 2 Jul 1919, Wednesday, starting on page 1 - Judge Arthur Simkins "Sketch of the Life of This Revolutionary Patriot, Prepared by Mr. S. McG. Simkins" - William Simkins, born in Accomac Co, VA, married Sabra _____ in 1734. Of this marriage 3 children were born: William who married Ann Dunton & lived & died in Northampton Co, VA, Covington and Arthur, the later born in 1742, married Margaret Dalby in 1761 and this is the early pioneer whose memory we are here to perpetuate and who settled this spot and cleared the original forests. In 1772 he moved from Virginia to S.C., settling first on the Congaree River near out Capital City and in December of that year moved to Cedar Fields in Edgefield District. When he left Virginia he had 3 children, John, William and Nancy and the youngest son Eldred, seeing the light of day at Cedar Fields, and in this burying ground a streak of sunlight touches the marble shaft erected to Eldred Simkins, born in the stirring year of 1775 and who died in 1831, a splendid lawyer, a promoter of education and religious activity, a member of the Congress and law partner of George McDuffie. Judge O'Neal in his "Bench and Bar of South Carolina" says: "Arthur Simkins was of the most respectable class from the Eastern shores of Virginia and emigrated early in life to Edgefield District. He ultimately settled a fine body of land on the waters of Log Creek, in Edgefield District, a plantation still remembered by many as the "Cedar Fields." Here is lived and died. He was County Court Judge. When the Rev. War broke out, he of course sided for independence of the colonies and served his country faithfully. He was a member of the S.C. general assembly for about 20 consecutive years. He died September 29, 1826 leaving a large property. He was a Baptist in his religion. His youngest son was Eldred and became the favorite of his father. Eldred James Simkins, late a very distinguished citizen of Texas, State senator and judge of Supreme Court of Criminal appeals and author of the present Appellate System of Texas, a descendant of John Simkins. Two descendants of Arthur Simkins married the two war governors of South Carolina, Governors Pickens and Bonham. The will of Judge Simkins reads: 1st: I give my son John Simkins all that tract of land lying eastwardly of the village of Edgefield which I purchased of Peter Youngblood and about 15 Negroes. This John was the oldest son of Arthur and when the survey of the county was made in 1817 he was living not far from Cedar Fields near the road leading to Meeting Street. He was ordinary of Edgefield County from 1803 to 1833, when he died at the age of 71. His wife was a Miss James of Virginia, daughter of Hezikiah and Sabra James. John had 9 children, some of whom died young. One son Jesse, a daughter, Bethethland Brooks. Sabra, a daughter married John Speed Jeter who was solicitor o the Southern District and served as a member of the House of Representatives and State Senator. Another married a Mr. Harris who built the original house on the same spot now occupied by the Hon. J.L Mins. Mr. Jeter lived at the place now owned by Mmr. Ransom Padgett. Another daughter of John Simkins, Elizabeth, married John S. Glascock, a distinguished lawyer of Edgefield and State Senator and Major General of the 1st Division of South Carolina Militia. Continuing the will of Arthur Simkins: "To Arthur Simkins Jr., a son of John, a house." To Nancy Lowe, 2 lots in the village of Edgefield, on one of which she now resides." To 2 granddaughters, Winnie and a name unintelligible in the will, and to Jesse, a grandson, and a granddaughter, Elinor McWhorter. To the youngest son, Eldred, all the remainder of the property. John and Eldred were Extrs." The will was made in 1820. The son William is mentioned in the will and must have died before his father, as some of his children are made legatees. One daughter of William, Lucretia Simkins, married Mr. John Mobley of Red Bank, now in Saluda County. From this union are descended most of the Sheppard family of Edgefield: Ex-Governor J.C. Sheppard, Hon. Orlando Sheppard, the Daniel family and all the Mobley family and descendants, among them Mrs. Manly Timmons. Nancy Lowe, mentioned in the will, was the 3rd child and only daughter of Judge Simkins. She married first, George Youngblood, who was the grandfather of Misses Cottie, Tillie and Eliza Youngblood and Mrs. Nannie Griffin, and the late Capt. Erasmus Youngblood and Lewis Youngblood. Nancy or Ann Youngblood was the mother of Patience who married first, Stanmore Butler and was the ancestor of General Milledge Bonham, here present today, her granddaughter Patience Ann, being the wife of Governor Bonham.

E.J., J.L, and J.E. Mims. By the second marriage of Nancy or Ann Simkins to Henry Lowe there were 2 daughters; one, Theresa, became the wife of Dr. Richard Tutt Mims.
