The Baggett Family in America, Part X
John Baggett Family History

We will begin this chapter of The History of the Lineage with the descendants of John Baggett, born ca. 1719, the fifth son of Nicholas Baggett, Sr. (II). John Baggett, along with Benjamin and Hardy Baggett, are sometimes referred to as the Three Lost Sons of Nicholas Baggett, because documentation is so scarce on these three. We do not yet have a lineage on either Hardy or Benjamin, and all the records on John Baggett are so sketchy that we only have a conjectural image of his family, with some references questioning as to whether it should be presented on this site at all.

John Baggett is found as a witness in a deed of gift from Benjamin Carter to his wife, Martha Carter, in Bertie County, NC in 1762. There is no doubt that this is John Baggett, son of Nicholas, Sr. (II). However, this is the only document that is satisfactorily accepted as the son of Nicholas, Sr., unless it is that John in the deed from John West to Charles Paris in Granville County. A John Baggot witnessed this deed for John West in Granville County, NC on 8 February 1763.

What we believe may possibly be the descendants of John Baggett are found in some earlier records there in Bertie County in 1749. A Roger Baggett, recorded there as Rodger Badgett, appears on several deeds in Bertie County and Roger Baget and Roger Bagit are found in Granville County in 1761 and 1763 and seemingly are the same family, only with different spellings of the name. Roger names John Baget as his son in a deed in Granville County in 1763.

There are two things that convince me that these Badgetts and Bagets are the same family and that is the name of Michael Ward on the deed to Rodger Badgett in 1749 and Thomas Ward on another deed from Joseph Watson in 1761ľand William Bagget and Badget in Granville. I realize this is flimsy evidence, but it does add strength to the theory. Thomas Ward in Granville may be a son of Michael Ward of Bertie.

John Baggot of Fredericksburg, VA was the only other John Baggott found anywhere near this time period. He is found buying lot number 179 in that town on 4 August 1767. It does not seem probable that this is the son of Nicholas II. There is not reason to believe that he would migrate north when all the rest of the family of Nicholas migrated south. This is probably the John Baggott who left a will in 1773 there in Spotsylvania County. He named his sons in his last Will and Testament in 1773.

There was a John Baggott in Charles County, MD in 1714 and another in 1746. Unfortunately we don't know anything about these families in Maryland or Virginia. I made acquaintance several years ago with Pauline Baggott Harbaugh who lives in Silver Spring, MD. She has traced her family back to James M. Baggett, who was born in 1809. Pauline's ancestors were honorable citizens of Fredericksburg and Manassas, VA, so it's very possible that she is a descendant of the above John Baggott of Fredericksburg.

Marjorie E. Baggett Tharpe's ancestor John Baggett, born 1828, was from Fairfax County, VA, and it is possible that she is a descendant of John Baggott, who made a will in 1773. She lives in Alexandria, VA.

This page includes all the information I have on John Baggett, son of Nicholas Baggett II, and John Baggott of Fredericksburg. As mentioned, some of the above may be descendants of John, brother of Nicholas Baggett I of Isle of Wight County, VA. There are records on a John Baggett found later in Robeson County, NC, but several documents support this John as being a son of Nicholas Baggett, Jr. (III).
