(per James W. McCluer Teague Family GenForum message #832) Sharon Mason has: William sold 130 acres of his father's land 14 May 1714 at age 21. William
sold another 160 acres on 18 Jun 1737 and migrated to Frederick Co., VA,
shortly afterwards. He left Frederick Co. about 1751-1755 for Rowan Co., NC.
Will proved 1762 in Rowan Co., N.C., but the dated is also listed as 1775.
By a series of documents gathered on William Teague, the only son of Edward Teague, and his wife Susan. (And a step-son of Emanuel Smith who married his widowed mother). The movements of this William Teague can be traced from Cecil Co., Maryland, to Frederick Co., Virginia in 1737 and on to Rowan Co., N.C. in 1751. Whether or not he later moved down into South Carolina depends on the identity of a William Teague who obtained a grant of 300 acres of land on Little River, in Craven, Co., S.C. on June 5, 1771, and an additional grant of 150 acres on May 5. 1772. We have not yet to locate the record of the sale and transfer of this property which makes it difficult it this was the property of the above William or the property of his son William Jr. If William Sr. owned the land then it is evident that he died after the year 1772.
Documents proving the relationship between William Teague and his father Edward Teague, are on file in the Clerk of Court in Elkton. Md. One is dated May 14 1714 relating to a Deed of Sale of 160 acres of land from William Teague to Abraham Pennington, and the other dated June 18, 1737 relating to a Deed of Sale of 130 acres from William Teague to John Graham. It is obvious that from the description of these to tracts of land they are identical at the two tracts of land assigned to Edward Tegg on August 25th and 26th, 1695, and that William, being the only son was also "sole heir at law" to this property. As a matter for comparison, the full contents of these two documents are a vital part of the records of William Teague.
While residing in Cecil Co., Md. there is evidence that William and his wife Isabella were members of the old St. Mary Anne's Episcopal Church in the town of Northeast, Md. This church was established in the year 1706 and the parish records contain the exact dates of birth for five of their known nine children. Also mentioned in the Church records are the names of several Teague∆s who died in Cecil Co. Md., but in reconstructing the family group of William and Isabella we seem to account for all of the children and are unable to determine the relationship of the dead with those who were living at the time. It is said that the tombs of several can be seen in the church yard of St. Mary Anne's Parish. In the vicinity of Rising Sun and Northeast, Md., but so far no one that we know of has been able to locate them.
William Teague & Isabella E. Pennington, Maryland William Teague was born 1693 at Teggs Delight, Cecil, Maryland, the son of Edward & Susan Teague . Married: Isabella E. Pennington b: 1697 in Maryland Steve Connolly (email@example.com) writes: "Occasionally, the following is published on various genealogy sites as fact: William Teague b. ca 1693, Cecil County, MD, wife Isabella Loftin b. 19 Dec 1693. However, several very assiduous researchers have been UNABLE to verify that. It is also possible that the wife referred to was Isabella Pennington (ca 1697, Cecil County, MD). One of those researchers, Ashley Loftin, was kind enough to send me photocopies of records that he had examined during his years of hands-on research. Indeed, there is no reference to anyone but an Isabell/Isabella. This is an on-going unsolved gap in our information. Unless solid evidence has come to light (evidence many of us would love to examine), please be advised that this controversy exists for both the Loftin/Lofton researchers and the Pennington researchers. We all have to remain vigilant about publishing conjecture as fact."
**********William & Isabella Teague's first two children (Edward and Moses) were born in Spesutie Hundred, Baltimore Co, MD not in Elk Hundred, Cecil Co,MD.William and Isabella did not move to Elk Hundred until abt 1719/1720. William had been living in Spesutie Hundred since from when his mother Susannah moved them there in abt 1697/1698 after Edward Teague died in 1697 Elk Hundred, Cecil Co, MD (on his plantation called Teague's Delight) Susannah was married abt 1698 Spesutie Hundred,Baltimore Co, MD to Emanuel Smith. In fact when I went thru the book: "Early Anglical Church Records of Cecil Co, MD" I found in the parish register of St Mary Anne's Church of North Elk these children of William & Isabella Teague: Elijah Teague buried 1 Sep 1720 Abraham Teague born 1May 1721
Charity Teague born 14 Dec 1722
Elijah Teague born 1 May1726
Susannah Teague born 3 Jan 1730
William Teague born 30 Jul1733
William Teague born 16 May 1734
CORRECTION here: William & Isabella had moved sometime in 1716 from Spesutie Hundred, Baltimore Co,MD to Elk Hundred, Cecil Co, MD. Edward & Moses were both born in Elk Hundred, Cecil Co, MD not Spesutie Hundred, Baltimore Co, MD. William's 1st tract of land was patented in 1716 Cecil Co, MD called Teague's Endeavor. he patented 3 tracts of land in Cecil Co, MD in 1734: Teague's Choice, Teague's Forrest & Teague's Hopewell Alan Lerwick
William Teague, the son of Edward, was born in Cecil County, MD, about 1695. He married Isabella (last name unknown) [later determined] about the year 1715 and they had the following children:
Edward, 1716 (approximately)
Abraham, May 5, 1720
Charity, Dec. 11, 1722
Elijah, May 1, 1726
Susannah, Jan. 30, 1730
William Jr., July 31, 1733
(Some of these dates can be found in the records of Saint Mary (Anne's) Episcopal Church at Northeast, MD). Various property transactions indicate that William Teague sold all of his land holdings in Cecil County, MD, and moved to Frederick County, VA, purchasing land there on June 21, 1738. As the above children came of age, they too purchased land in Frederick County, VA. They all decided to move South to Carolina in the early 1750s.
--Records of Carroll H. Teague (Titusville, FL - April 19, 1966)
From Remarks - "Early Settlers in Niagara, including the First 'Census' 1782, 1783, 1784, 1786, 1787":
William sold his father's land in 1714 at the age of 21. A deed for William in Cecil County, MD, states that he is planning to leave Cecil County. He migrated to Frederick Co., VA c1737. Deeds in Frederick Co., VA show the names of three of his sons. He left Frederick County, VA c1751 for the Carolinas.
From KatieAnn40 email of May 6, 2000:
When his father Edward died, William changed the "Tegg" name to "Teague" to be more americanized....He did this in 1714....
Edward Tegg?s name was transcribed in the records in 1675 as Teage, in 1695 as Tegg, and was corrected by his son William Teague in 1714, even though William was unable to sign his own name, but it is evident he knew how to spell it.
Upon Edward death, William did inherit the plantation called " Teagues
Delight" in Cecil County Maryland....He did sell it though to move south to Virginia then on to North Carolina.
Married: Isabella E. Penninton b: 1693 in Maryland
William and his family moved to Fredricks County , Virginia 1737 with his family when he was 44....He lived there for 14 yrs ....then moved to Abbotts Creek, North Carolina at age 58...He settled in Foresyth County before the Moravians, He is the " Father" Of the Teagues of the South...Abbotts Creek was the dispersal point for the Teagues in North Carolina.
William Teague 1693-1775 is burried in Abbotts Creek Cemetary....
Father: Edward TEAGUE b: ABT 1655 in Bristol, England

William Teague was born in 1693 in Connawangoe Creek, Cecil, MD. He died in 1775 in Frederick Cty, VA. LDS records state he went from Cecil,MD., to Fred Cty, VA., to Rowan Cty, NC. William Teague 10 Sept 1716 Cecil Cty, 100 acres in tract named "Teague's endeavour" listed in"Settlers of MD 1701-1730' by Peter Wilson Coldham) 1737 Cecil Cty, MD Wm Teague sold his land or property.
Frederick Cty, VA He moved with his family to where he remained for 14 years. He acquired several tracts of land recorded in the Winchester Court House VA. As some of the sons became of age, they too acquired land. Teagues, Shephads, Morgans, Crawfords, Van Metres, Hites and others were identified with the Mecklenburg (now Shepherdstown) locality. This area was known as the "Hite-Van Metre" patents. Wm Teague settled on the Hite-Van Metrelands: His property was a part of a 300 acres tract, then in Orange Co,granted to Richard Pendell, 3 Oct. 1734.
88 acres of the 300 sold to him by Pendell on a branch of the"Shenandore" River, called the "Cattail Branch" 121 acres from James Brown "lying on the south side of the Cohongoluta River, (Potomac River above its confluence with the Shenandoah) probably between Martinsburg and Mecklenburg 11 Oct. 1750, 145 acres granted by Thomas, Lord Fairfax. It is uncertain if he resided on any of them. As mallstream, "Teague's Run", in the vicinity of Mecklenburg had its headspring on one of the old Teague properies. It empties into the Potomac near Shephardstown.
From Cty records at Winchester, VA 13 July 1744, Wm. Teague was the assignee of Jno. Baldwin. In 1751, Wm Teague prepared to emigrate to the Carolnas and sold his entire holdings of approx 500 acres in Frederick Cty,VA: 13 June 1751 to Benjamin Sebastin, 88; 17 Aug 1751 to Elijah Teague, hiss on, 145 acres; 17 Aug 1751 to Robert Fulsham, 121 acres; 3Oct. 1751 o Abraham Teague 135 acres; 12 Feb. 1752 deeds of lease and release for 192 acres made to Elijah and Abraham Teague by Wm Teague
Rowan Cty -California 1751 Wm came into North /Carolina with his two younger sons, Joshua, born California 1732, Wm Teague, Jr. 1733.They were the first of the clan to settle in NC. In the next 6 years they were joined by the other four sons, Rev. Edward, Moses, Abraham & Elijah & their families. All settled in Rowan Cty acquiring good tracts of land on Abbotts Creek. Conditions were suitable for progress and happiness. Within 15 years, this changed. 9 Jan 1761 #4918 Wm granted in Parish of St. Luke on North side of the Cattaba River. Wit: Jas Watson, Wm Reed. Examined by Tho Jones & W. Churton. Warrant dated 3 Apr 1752, surveyed 18 Feb 1753. The plat reads "tract of land in Anson Co"; the grant reads "sd land in Rowan Co" - Rowan was formed from Anson in 1753.(Lord Granville to; from Original records- NC State Archives- Raleigh)" In NC,prior to the Revolutionary War, there was considerable unrest because of the method of taxation & the collection of these taxes by the British Authorities. This brought on the " Regulator Movement.' The climax being the "Battles of Almance," 16 May 1771. Being inexperienced, the 4,000 Regulators were defeated by the British in a matter of hours. Those who were engaged in this conflict found it expedient to remove themselves from the jurisdiction of the local authorities to avoid reprisals. After this took place in NC, the Teagues family began to move into SC. Elijah Teague settled in Newberry Cty, SC several years before some of the other brothers came in. Joshua Teague began to dispose of his land in NC & on 10 July 1771, he purchased 250 acres on Bush Creek in Laurens Cty, SC.
