Ridley 4 (?), a daughter of 8 (?), was born in Southampton

County, Va. ; was married to Dr. Samuel Brown, and had issue an only
son, Dr. LaFayette Brown, to inherit the family property.

Ridley 4 (?), a daughter of 3 (?), was born in Southampton

County, Va. ; was married to Abridgton Brown, brother of Dr. Samuel
Brown, before mentioned, and had issue.



Maj. Thomas Ridley 4 (2), eldest son of Thomas 3 (1), was born in
Southampton Comity, Va. ; married Mary Wright, and had issue four
children, of whom hereafter. Married, secondly, Ann-Gilliam Wilkerson,
by whom no issue. He, like his father, became conspicuous for his mili-
tary career, having commanded a cavalry company in the war of 1812.

Francis Ridley 4 (1), second son of Thomas 3 (1), was born in South-
ampton County, Va. ; married Louisa R. Blunt, and had issue two sons, of
whom hereafter. Few men had more and warmer friends than the sub-
ject of this notice. For many years he represented the County of South-
ampton in the Virginia Legislature, and proved an able and popular mem-
ber ; by his foresight and prudence held his seat, while many others by
their rashness lost theirs. He died a young man.

FIFTH GENERATION.

William Ridley 5 (3), eldest son of Thomas 4 (2), was born in South-
ampton County, Va., and died unmarried.

Col. Thomas Ridley 5 (3), second son of Thomas 4 (2),was born in South-
ampton County, Va., Aug. 22, 1809; married Nov. 2, 1837, Margaret B.
Jordan, daughter of John B. Jordan, of Northampton County, N. C, the
belle and beauty of her age, and in all the bearing of life she has proven
that the homage paid her was the just tribute to her worth. They had
issue eight children, of whom hereafter. Colonel Ridley must have re-
ceived the mantle of his grandfather of Revolutionary fame, for from his
early manhood he displayed a fondness for military life. When very young
he was made captain of a company of cavalry, keeping this position for
many years. Afterwards he was elected colonel' of the militia forces of
his native County, and there he was ever the popular commander, the kind
friend, the honored gentleman. He possessed a kindness of heart, a gen-
tleness of manner, which caused him to be ever loved and appreciated, es-
pecially in the home circle ; yet in his bearing there was a dignity, a re-
serve of manner, that forbade anything like familiarity for even his friends.
He declined the solicitations of his friends to become a candidate for legis-
lative duties, preferring to devote his time to the cultivation of his exten-
sive farms. In political sentiment he was a warm Democrat, and was ever
devoted to what he regarded the best interests of his country. In the
moral relations of life his character was irreproachable. Like his ances-
tors, he embraced the faith and usages of the Protestant Episcopal Church.
His personal appearance was commanding; he was straight, spare, and
but little above the medium height, but from erectness of carriage and
military precision of gait, had the appearance of being tall. The cast of
his features was good ; the expression of his countenance rather grave,
unless when lighted with pleasurable emotions. His advantages for ac-
quiring an education were all that affluence could provide. By judicious
management he increased the ample fortune left him by his father, and
became the possessor of great wealth. He died March 7, 1875.



RIDLEYS OF SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY, VIRGINIA. 487

Robert Ridley 5 (2), third son of Thomas 4 (2), was born in Southamp-
ton County, Va.; married Mary-Eliza, daughter of John N. Blunt, of
Greensville County, Va., and had issue four children, of whom hereafter.
At an early period he manifested a decided taste for the legal profession.
He was at one time a student at William and Mary College in Williams-
burg, Va. ; and subsequently at the University of Virginia. After the
completion of his classical course, he entered the law-office of the distin-
guished John Y. Mason, as a student of law. Having passed through the
usual routine of study, he appeared at the bar, and gained much distinc-
tion and a lucrative practice. He represented Southampton County in
the Legislature, and served as a member of the Convention called to amend
the State Constitution. As a member of the Convention and in the legis-
lative halls he was no idle looker-on, but zealously defended the interests
of the State. His urbane manners and charming conversation won him a
place in the hearts of his fellow-men, and his associates were among the
most respectable and cultivated of his generation. His health became
somewhat impaired during his application in Conventional duties, and with
short intervals of improvement continued to decline until the month of
August, 185*2, when his useful life was terminated. Mr. Ridley's wife was
all that could be desired, proving an amiable companion and faithful help-
meet in all relations of life.

Nancy Ridley 5 (1), only daughter of Thomas 4 (2), was born in South-
ampton County, Va., and died single.

Ridley 5 (?)? eldest son of Francis 4 (1), was born in Southampton

County, Va., and died without issue.

Francis-Thomas Ridley 5 (2), second son of Francis 4 (1), was born
in Southampton County, Va., Sept. 5, 1817; married Elizabeth-Norfleet
Goodwyn, daughter of Dr. William B. Goodwyn, and had issue six chil-
dren, of whom hereafter. Mr. Ridley inherited his father's possessions,
including the old Ridley homestead, where he at present resides. He was
at one time a student in Trinity College, Hartford, Conn., and afterwards
at the University of Virginia. He studied law, but never practised it as
a profession, preferring to devote his time to agricultural pui"suits. In
person he scarcely reaches the medium height, with a mould of body and
limb which inclines to the stout order of men. His colloquial powers are
good; his manner affable and agreeable. The eldest living member of
this family.

SIXTH GENERATION.

in Southampton County, Va., Sept. 4, 1844; married his cousin, Mary
Ridley, and has but one child, a daughter, of whom hereafter. Mr. Rid-
ley is now the oldest male representative of this branch of the family, and
better praise cannot be bestowed, or one that he would feel prouder to re-
ceive, than that he is in every respect "a son worthy of such a sire." He
resides in his native County, and is highly respected for excellent quali-
ties of head and heart.

Emma- Wright Ridley 8 (1), fourth daughter of Thomas 5 (3), was born
in Southampton County, Va., May 9, 1846; was married to George-Pol-
lock Burgoyne, of Northampton County, N. C, May 27, 1869; she has
three children.

Virginia- Jordan Ridley 6 (1), fifth'daughter of Thomas 6 (3), was born

John-William Ridley 6 (2), third son of Thomas 5 (3), was born in
Southampton County, Va., Dec. 9, 1853 ; married Bettie Goodwyn, in

Robert Ridley 6 (3), eldest son of Robert 5 (2), was born in Southamp-
ton County, Va., Sept. 27, 1844; married Lucy A. Urquhart, daughter of
Charles F. Urquhart, and has issue four children, of whom hereafter. Mr.
Ridley was educated at the Virginia Military Institute at Lexington, and
after the burning of the Institute by Hunter in 1864, served with the
Corps of Cadets under Breckenridge up to Jan. 1, 1865, when he was trans-
ferred to the Thirteenth Virginia Cavalry, and served till the close of the

in Southampton County, Va., Aug. 29,1846; was married to Nathaniel
T. Ridley 6 (3), her cousin before mentioned, and has issue one daughter.

Norfleet-Blunt Ridley 6 (1), second son of Robert 5 (2), was born in
Southampton County, Va., Oct. 25, 1848; married his cousin, Anna-Field
Ridley, daughter of Francis T. Ridley, Dec. 18, 1873, and has issue two
children, of whom hereafter. He was educated at Hanover Academy, Va,,
and at the Virginia Military School. He served the latter part of the
late war as private in Company B, Corps Cadets. Mr. Hidley resides at
Bellemonte, Southampton County, a locality made famous in the history
of Virginia, being the place where the "Nat Turner" insurrection was
quelled. Mr. Ridley has manifested a deep interest in the author's un-
dertaking, and has rendered valuable assistance by collecting the history
and genealogy of his branch-family for this work; the family will appre-
ciate the faithful manner in which their kinsman has accomplished his task.

Sallie-Ann Ridley 6 (2), second daughter of Robert 5 (2), was born in
Southampton County, Va., Oct. 23, 1850; was married Nov. 4, 1869, to
John-Joseph Long, Jr., of Halifax, N. C, and was the mother of three
children; she was left a widow, Aug. 24, 1878.



William-Goodwyn Ridley 6 (3), eldest son of Francis 5 (2), was born
July 1, 1842, in Southampton County, Va. As a child he was noted for
his great neatness of person, and his manner, as he grew older, was
unusually refined. At the age of fourteen, having previously been care-
fully trained, he was sent to Brookland School, in Albemarle County, as a
pupil of William Dinwiddie, M. A. At the end of the third session he
had passed through the classes of his school; but Mr. Dinwiddie, having



RIDLEYS OF SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY, VIRGINIA. 489

discovered in him the requisite ability of mind, was anxious to have him
take the Master's Degree at the university, and persuaded him to return
to Brookland another year, in order to make his success at college the
more easy and certain. In October, 1860, he entered the University of
Virginia, with the intention of remaining there until his education was
finished. Soon after the first acts of the war he became, at the earnest
solicitation of many friends, a member of Company F, a volunteer organ-
ization previously raised in Norfolk, and then stationed on Craney Island,
under command of Capt. Harry Williamson. Here he had many com-
forts not usual to the life of a soldier, and the friends of the company
feted them continually. But, still, with that ardor of patriotism which
characterized so many southern youths, he sighed for a more active life.
He was then a beardless boy, of rather small stature, but with a good
constitution. Under this rudimentary experience of "playing soldier,"
as it was afterwards called, his frame expanded, and he became more
robust. At the reorganization in 1862, he was offered a lieutenancy in
another company, but he preferred to remain with his friends in Company
F. Upon the evacuation of Norfolk, this company, with others, was
marched to Suffolk, and thence to Petersburgh, where it was first placed in
the regiment to which it belonged, and was afterwards known as Com-
pany G, Sixth Virginia Infantry, Mahone's Brigade. The first action
in which William Ridley took part was at Drury's Bluffs, his company
being among those detailed to attack the gun-boats at that place. He
wrote to hisfather, afterwards, that in his first trial he was calm and com-
posed. Malvern Hill furnished his next experience in battle, and a friend
then on a visit to the brigade described his bravery, immediately before
the battle, as creditable in the highest degree to himself and his lineage.
It was the twentieth anniversary of his birthday, and he wrote home that
in the midst of the desperate charge the thought flashed across his mind,
how unlike this to all previous celebrations of that day. After the battles
about Richmond, when many were filling their places with substitutes, he
was offered one. "His bleeding and injured country required his serv-
ices, and he was unwilling to give her less." Mahone'sjBrigade w r as then
stationed at Falling Creek until the middle of August, when Anderson's
Division followed Longstreet's, to re-inforce Jackson and drive Pope from
the Rappahannock. This brigade was not brought into action in the
series of battles that culminated in the great struggle of Second Manas-
sas, Aug. 30, 1862, until the afternoon of that day; it was then that Wil-
liam Ridley fell. His officers and comrades complimented his bravery on
the field, but darkness intervening, no one saw him close his earthly ca-
reer. On the evening of the 31st he was found dead "on the front line
of the action." Thus perished this noble youth, far away from his home,
his last earthly consciousness the shouts of his victorious comrades, who
presently made his grave beneath the bloody sod.

Loilisa-Blimt Ridley 6 (1), eldest daughter of Francis 5 (2), was born
in Southampton County, Va., Dec. 23, 1844; was married to Joseph A.
Drewry,* of Drewrysville, Southampton County, Dec. 2, 1869, and was
left a widow the 18th of the following May.

* It is a little singular that there should be a " Drewry-Ridley" in England, one in
Vermont, one in New York, and an intermarriage between the family of Ridley and
Drewry in Virginia, without any tie of relationship known to exist between the
several branches. Doubtless these several families were originally derived from
one stock.

planter and slave-owner.*

Gerrard Ridley 1 (1), a brother of the preceding, is supposed to have
emigrated from England with Peter, and to have lived in the same County.
I do not find records of children. In the prayer-book before mentioned,
is the following: — "Gerrard Ridley, his book, 1772."

SECOND GENERATION.

Gerrard Ridley 2 (2), eldest son of Peter 1 (1), was born in Virginia,
Sept. 11, 1787, and died Sept. 18, 1823.

Dea. John Ridley 2 (l),t a son of Peter 1 (1), was born in Virginia,
Jan. 26, 1800; married, Sept. 4, 1824, to Mary-Ann Gardner (her age was
sixteen), and had issue nine children, of whom hereafter. Mr. Ridley
settled in Norfolk, Va., about 1818, and continued there till his death,
Nov. 13, 1864. His education was confined to a country school in early
life, but he studied and mastered several branches of science. For twenty-
five years he was surveyor of the city of Norfolk. He was deacon of the
Baptist church forty years ; a man of strict integrity, and a devoted
Christian; was of retiring disposition ; owned slaves, who were -alternately
employed in making brick and cutting timber. Retired from active busi-
ness, but held a citv office at time of his death.

in 1828, and died in 1830.

folk, Va., in 1833, and died in 1835.

folk, Va. ; was married in 1868, to Rev. T. G. Jones, d. d., now pas-
tor of the First Baptist Church of Nashville, Tenn. He has been presi-
dent of Wake Forest College, N. C, and of Richmond College. A writer
of great ability.

Emily Ridley 3 (1), fifth daughter of John 2 (1), was born in Norfolk,
Va., and was married in 1869 to George J. Thomas, a cotton-broker. A
widow, living with her mother.

*The Hon. Hugh-Blair Grisley, Chancellor of Virginia, in a letter, states that
the records of deeds and wills of the Ridleys could be found in the Register's office
of York County, but they are not there, and the records of Elizabeth City do not
produce them. The records of Warwick County were destroyed during the war.
This gentleman thinks one of this family was a member of the House of Burgesses
before the Revolution, which is a mistake. That man was a member of the family
in Southampton County, Va.

f Several sisters of John Ridley died before his marriage, and two — Mrs. Bour-
bon Jones and Mrs. Sands — a few weeks after his marriage. Two other sisters
were married to Mr. Burnham and Mr. Ashley. I have not found the names of
these sisters, nor records of their marriages and deaths.
