    There are records of BRIDGES in the parent counties of Prince William County, but there is no connection of the BRIDGES in that county with those BRIDGES in any earlier county.

    Prince William County was formed in 1731 from Stafford and King George Counties, with Stafford County being formed in 1664 from Westmoreland County (1653) and King George County being formed in 1721 from Richmond County (1692). Faquier County (1759) and Fairfax (1742) were formed from Prince William County with Loudoun County (1757) being formed from Fairfax County. There are records of an Anthony Bridges in Westmoreland, Stafford and Rappahannock Counties during the 1660's and 1670's.

    In 1690 Westmoreland County, William Bridges and wife, Elizabeth (?), received a land grant of 700 acres. In 1723 in Westmoreland, an inventory was taken by one William Bridges (administrator) of the estate of another William Bridges (deceased). The published marriages of Richmond County report the marriage of Elizabeth Medcalf (widow of Samuel Baley d. 1727) to William Bridges of Westmoreland County prior to 1741; and the marriage of William Jacobs to Mary Bridges (spinster) in 1753. In 1746 in Westmoreland County an inventory was taken by Peter Rust, executor of the estate of John Bridges.

    In 1724 in King George County, Ann Bridges presented the will of William Bridges and took oath as executor with the will being proven by Francis Payne, John Payne and Robert English.

        Text: To all that will be receiving this article I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Rose (Bridges-Kreitman) Clark, b 1931 in Madison (Madison County) Nebraska. A number of years back I had asked my Aunt De Loris (Bridges) McGee about our Bridges family and from her I received the copy of this article that contained 3 parts of the following information on "Bridges to the Past". I am sorry to tell you that I do not know if any of the authors are still living today as this article as you can see is over 23 years old and do not know what city in NC this newspaper was published in. My intent on passing this article on to you is the hope that if anyone is looking for one little piece of information that might assist in a link I would be glad I had made this effort. Rose
