Hi, I have started a search for early records that might help me (us) get
back in time to the immigration of our ancestors. Some surprises, and some
As I look for Boswell lineage and I run across other names, I try to include
Such as:
Bagwell , Boswell Surname-
Early immigrant(1600-1700) misc. information.

Henry Bagwell Age 35 in1608. From London to VA on Ship Deliverance.
Henry Bagwell - 1623 Muster( Census) VA, @ West & Sherlow Hundred.
Henry Bagwell - 1626 Patent 50 ac Carporacon(Corp.) Charlestown VA
Thomas Bagwell- ( Same as Henry - 1623 Census)
Thomas Bagwell - 4 Feb 1624 Muster @ Neck of Land near James City
Peter Bagwell - 9 Dec 1685 to Barbados on ship Nephos along with 99 others.
He was charged with treason as a result of the Manmouths Rebellion in
1685(England). 10 year servitude. His Master was Nichlos ? plantation
owner/overseer in Barbados.
Note: He was not alone. Many others (100s)were shipped off to Barbados for
the same involvement in the rebellion. After the 10 years was up many had
married and were given TICKETS to America. We also find many convicts were
sent to Barbados.( It would be interesting if someone could research this
part of our history.) It must be understood that a convict could be a person
in the poorhouse that could not meet obligations. Their children were put in
orphanages and indentured out at ages from 3- teens.

there were many more Boswells there in 1782.

Barnwell District S.C. Issued by Gov. of GA. Also a Philip Phillips- 8 May
