Notes for JEREMIAH SOLESBURY SHREWSBERRY:
According to a note from Beverly Humphreys at
to Patsy Griffin at
Jeremiah as born in England around 1755 rather than Franklin County, Virginia. She says he came to the colonies just a few short years before the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. He settled first in the coastal area of Virginia, but moved westward. He is known to have lived in the county of Halifax and then later moved to Franklin County. By 1805 he owned the Clover Bottom-Spanishburg farm that has come down through the Maxey family line. The Shrewsbury settlement of the Pioneer Jeremiah was by purchase of this land in the Spanishburg-Bluestone Valley on September 256, 1805. Jeremiah sold his farm in Franklin for $2,000 and bought 200 acres in the Bluestone Valley for $1,000. His brother, John, came with him. This area is now known as Spanishburg. Jeremiah's wife, Mary Elizabeth Clay, was from the family of early settlers of Mercer County, Virginia. This surname also appears as "Shrewsbury." This name first appears in 1805 when buying and selling land in Halifax County, Vi
rginia before purchasing land in Montgomery County, Virginia on Bluestone River and Rich Creek. His first tract of land was purchased from John Burgess. On July 28, 1809, his Estate inventory included 7 slaves, 6 horses, 18 cattle, 20 sheep, 4 hogs, l looking glass, etc.
