  • Note:
    "John Bradford was born between 1690 and 1695. He was probably born in
    Stafford County, Virginia. His parentage is unknown at this time. He
    married in about 1717, Mary Marr Kingcart. Mary was born in about 1695
    in Virginia, probably in Lancaster County, the daughter of John Marr
    and his first wife, whose name is not known. The Marrs moved to
    Stafford County in about 1700. Mary was the widow of Thomas Kingcart,
    Jr. of Calvert County, Maryland. Thomas and Mary Marr Kingcart had one
    daughter, Martha. Thomas Kingcart died in 1715.
    In 1720, King George County, Virginia was formed from parts of
    Richmond and Stafford Counties. The area where John and Mary Bradford
    lived apparently was in the newly formed King George County. As shown
    in the earlier article from the Genealogies of Virginia Families, John
    Bradford had been granted land, and had a home in King George County
    by 1822. This land was originally surveyed for Thomas Kingcart, the
    late husband of John's wife, Mary Marr Kingcart. This land, and
    another 125 acres he later from purchased William Russell in 1728,
    adjoined land owned by the Marr Family. John and Mary Bradford had
    nine known children.
    In 1731, the area John owned in King George County, was included in
    another new county, Prince William. On the 1737 Quit Rent Roll of
    Prince William County, John is shown with 250 acres. It is assumed
    John was a farmer.
    John Bradford received a grant of 309 acres in Prince William County
    in 1748. This land adjoined his other land. He now owned 559 acres in
    Prince William County.
    John Bradford died between 1748-1753 in Prince William County,
    From the Book "From Log Cabins to the White House" by Mary Brewer, we
    learn his place of birth and the following: John Bradford came to
    America on the ship "Temperance" as headright of William Peirce..this
    means his passage was paid by this man. Wm Peirce claimed land in
    Prince William Co., now Fauquier Co. VA. John lived at Marr's Run
    where he met John Marr and his daughter Mary Marr Kingcart and by this
    first marriage had a daughter Martha Kingcart who married John McBee
