Taken from Baggerly History book
John Baggerly was a native of England, born there. He married in England and nine of his ten children were born there. The tenth and last child was born at sea during the voyage of the family to the United Colonies (now USA). In 1746, with his wife and children, he set sail for what is now the United States. The voyage was made in his own ship, a small sailing vessel. the trip was rough and dangerous, encountering frequent winds, they were at the mercy of every gale, which carried them to and fro, and after being driven for six months over the waters of the great deep, they landed in safety at the city of Baltimore.
The first homestead was on the present site of the United States Capital building in what is now the District of Columbia, this locality then known as "slashing" a part of the present city of Washington. Subsequently, Mr. Baggerly located in a section of the country which was in a few years included in the State of Maryland, county of Frederick (now Montgomery) twelve miles north of Washington City, where he engaged in agricultural pursuits until his death in 1770, when his youngest son came into possession of the homestead.
John Baggerly's family consisted of seven sons and three daughters. John Baggerly's wife's name is not mentioned, simply referring to her as "grandmother Baggerly" and "John Baggerly's wife". John Baggerly was a Roman Catholic, his children being baptized and instructed in that faith and according to the usages of that church. All of the sons of John Baggerly served in the Revolutionary War.
