Further tracing of the Brickey line and related families. More to follow.
                                                One Branch (or Two) of the Brickey Tree
                                                      (and some offshoot branches)
                                            -a work in progress, dates and details to be added-

I have covered these people elsewhere, along with anecdotes about them:

•          The 14 children of Jailey E.Mayflower Brickey (Dixie) and John William Britts, all deceased.
•          Jailey E. M. Brickey and John William Britts of Louisa, Virginia.
•          Jarred Brickey (Rock), son of John Brickey and Mary C Hall, daughter of William Hall.

To expand further the Hall branch:

Mary Hall, born 6-12-1829, Botetourt Co., Virginia; died 9-14-1914
      Mother – Mary Ledgerwood, b 1799, Botetourt Co., VA; died 2-15-1874, Roanoke, VA
    Father – William Hall
    Spouse – Jarred Brickey

William Hall, b ~~1790, Botetourt Co., VA; d 7-15-1849, Botetourt
      Mother – Matilda Ledgerwood
    Father – Allen Hall
    Spouse – Mary Ledgerwood

Allen Hall
    Mother – possibly Sarah Pope of West Virginia, no proof
    Father -  Richard Hall
    Spouse- Matilda Ledgerwood

Note: It may be supposed that Mary Ledgerwood and William Hall were cousins, if Mary’s father were a brother to Matilda. But there is not evidence of that, in that I can find no records, so far, on Mary Ledgerwood’s family or Mailda Ledgerwood’s family. I welcome any info that may shed enlightenment.
For now I can draw no connection between the two women. I have also seen Nancy Lee Ledgerwood instead of Mary as spouse to William, but that is another Hall family, from Montgomery Co. (They might have been related, but there is no documentation.)
Also, there were rumors among the older generations that someone in Mary Hall’s family was a full Indian, but that has not been substantiated, either.

You pick up new families to trace with each generation, usually multiple families, since our mothers’ DNA is just as important as the fathers’. Unfortunately,  wives' maiden names are not always recorded, and less frequently, the first name isn’t recorded either.

I also encountered claims of spouses, with extensive pedigrees, that still left me doubtful that it was the right person, or that someone made a mistake connecting it to my ancestor. I do not have the ability to travel to Europe and examine for myself the records. I must rely on the research of others in most cases. So do not take anything here as a claim to absolute truth. Use it to open doors for your own research. I am always open for discussion or new information.

The Brickey Branch

Quick Backward Summary of Direct Line:
Jailey Brickey and her siblings, all born in Craig, Virginia, USA.
Jarred Brickey and spouse Mary Hall
John Brickey and Roda Shrewsbury.
Peter Brickey  and unknown.
Garrard Brickey and unknown.
Peter Brickey and Winfred Lucas.
Jean de Bricquet (John Brickey) and Alce Crabbe.

The above list of sons and fathers has caused great consternation.  This is the best I can derive since every source disagrees, and there are few written records between Jean/John and Roda’s John that clearly documents anything.  Here are details:
John Brickey, b 1794
    Mother -  Elizabeth unknown
    Father – Peter Brickey
    Spouse – Roda Shrewsbury*
Peter Brickey
    Mother – Unknown
    Father – Garrard Brickey
    Spouse – Elizabeth unknown
Garrard Brickey b abt 1738 Westmoreland Co, VA US; d 1790 Bedford Co, VA
    Mother – Winfred Lucas
    Father – Peter Brickey
    Spouse #1– Jane Unknown, mar abt 1757
    Sp #2 -Elizabeth Burkholder 1736-1806, buried KY, mar abt 1784?
    Sp #3--Mary Carhart Compton b 1763 Westmoreland, d Botetourt (possibly this Garrard Brickey) no child
    Child. of #1: John 1758, Garret Jr 1760, Peter 1761, Polly 1760's, Winfred 1764, Temperance 1767/8
    Child. of #2: Patty 1783, Nancy 1784, Miller 1784-1804, Christopher 1785
Peter Brickey, b  between 1670 and 1685 Artois, France; d 1786 in Virginia or Pr George Md
    Mother – Alce Crabbe
    Father – Jean de Briquet (See note below)
    Spouse – Winfred Lucas
Jean de Bricquet – b 1640, Artois France; d 1718, Virginia Colony.
      Parents – unknown
      Occupation – Hugenot minister
    Immigration – 1650 or 1685, from France to Carolina Colony (included Virginia)
    Moved – 1686 to Maryland Colony
Alce Crabbe (Alice/Marie Alce/Mary Elsie) – b ~1650 in Calais, Dordogne, Acquitaine, France; d Virginia
    Parents – unknown
    Spouse – John Brickey, 1669 in Westmoreland
    Son – Peter Brickey

  The substantial claim has been made that all Brickey’s in America descend from John Brickey of Artois. Artois is in Northeast France which had been under Spanish rule, after Danish rule. They had their own dialect of French and did not feel a particularly strong French connection. When the area fell under French rule, many non-Catholic residents had to flee from the country to escape persecution. Jean is believed to have been a Hugenot (non-Catholic), but there is no hard evidence.

*See separate family trees for Winfred Lucas and Roda Sthrewsbury.

As you can see, some things don’t add up. The wedding date for John and Alce and location would indicate that Peter was not born in France, at least not to Alce, maybe a first wife. It also would preclude immigration in 1685 if he was married here in 1669.  There are also claims that Jean and Alce had three children in the early 1700’s and one of these was named Peter. If so, John had a younger wife, since Alce would have been in her 60’s.  A\So you see why it looks like a generation may be missing. Too many details don’t add up.
