My interest in my forebears began about the time I learned to read, in fact.
I literally learned to read script from the old letters, manuscripts, papers
and the like at the old Ladd Home.  In an outer building there was an old
chest - maybe two, and a burlap bag, each filled with old letters, manuscripts
and insurance policies. A policy on the Old Bell Tavern in the early 1800s; a
lease on Swan Tavern and, possibly some of the many grants that had been
issued to our early ancestors - and many other valuable documents.  Some of
these papers I loaned to Mr. Edward V. Valentine, the famous sculptor,
(incidently, a cousin of my mother's,) who at that time was writing a history
of Richmond.  The papers, he said, proved of much value to him as they
contained information he had long sought.  Other than my Grandmother, I seemed
to be the only member of the family who was interested in the old letters and
papers' some of which may have been more than 200 years old but have since
become the dust of the earth.  Only a few had been salvaged.

My greatest delight in my childhood days was to get among those old letters,
which I did at every opportunity between chores.  The cellar was on the west
side of the house, it had a dirt floor, there was only one opening which was
about three feet square and was closed by a solid door, a step-down of about a
foot and a half to the dirt floor.  Late in the evening a shaft of sunlight
shown directly into the room giving ample light, but rummaging through the
dusty chests and bag, that shaft of light became so filled with dust-laden
germs I could scarcely see through it.  Of course, I knew I was safe as long
as I was outside that shaft of light filled with germs.  Going in or out or
from one side the room to the other, I'd hold my breath and duck through
quickly - didn't get a germ; though many of those letters had gone through
epidemics of cholera, yellow fever, smallpox and many other contagious
diseases of that era.

Those old letters and papers were thrown out and destroyed for lack of
sentiment and knowledge of their value.  Were they available today, our
genealogy could be had almost entirely from that collection - and the old
Family Bible which was destroyed by fire.  Quite a bit of my information was
obtained from "The Ladd Family," compiled by Warren Ladd, New Bedford, Mass.,
1890, each article from that source is in quotations except, of course, names
and dates of our earlier ancestors, some of which I obtained from various
places.  Warren, himself, acquired a great deal of his information about the
Virginia Ladds at the old Ladd Home with the help of the family Bible which
was in the possession of my grandmother; it contained records of births,
marriages and deaths of the family for perhaps nearly 200 years.  My uncle,
John Bell Ladd, spent quite some time with Warren Ladd, helping him collect
data on the Virginia Ladds, took him to Charles City County where the Ladds
were quite numerous before the Revolutionary War; about that time they began
to migrate south and west.

Some of my information was secured from the Norfolk Library; there I
discovered whom I thought was our first American-born maternal parent -
Bethsheba Lovett, who married John Ladd, the Norfolk County. (Now Princess
Anne County) In the Norfolk C. H., immigrant; daughter of Lancaster Lovett of
Lynnhaven Parish, Lower Portsmouth, Va.  I found the grant that was issued to
John Ladd, and signed by Sir William Beckley; other information I obtained at
the Virginia State Library in Richmond; also in the City Hall in Richmond.
Robert J. Blunt helped me materially in securing the dates of births and
marriages of many of our present generation.  Miss Arline Ladd, native of
Charles City County, was of great help in bringing her branch of the family
up-to-date.  Also Mrs. M. T. Hartsoe, formerly Lena Maria Adams, of Charles
City - and Ruth H. Ladd, daughter of Jesse A. Ladd, he was for many years
member of Richmond's City Council, a native of Charles City.  To each of these
members of the Ladd Family, I am greatly indebted - and to other members of
the family who have been so generous with their help and information.

This work, though tedious, has been very pleasant - I might say, thrilling.  I
have really enjoyed getting acquainted with my long deceased ancestors and
really learned to know them - their habits, traits, characteristics and even
their mode of living.  To me they were alive again.  Sometimes working late at
night, checking and rechecking, I'd go to sleep with them on my mind - and in
my dreams, I'd try to learn more about them.

Many of us were of the opinion that our Quaker ancestors of the Revolutionary
period were so serious, straight-laced and religious that they didn't enjoy
life as we do - we were wrong.  When I found that my great, great grandmother
had paid 20 pounds for "chair and harness," (A light one seated gig,) I knew
that she "went places," and a generation later, that my great grandmother, Ann
Ladd, drove a span of black horses to her carriage, I knew that she didn't sit
at home and twiddle her thumbs.  Quakers in those days, too, were opposed to
jewelry but not to the extent that my great grandmother couldn't sport a
$130.00 imported gold watch and seal.  They were opposed to places of
amusement and those who attended such places were severely reprimanded - and
if continued, were disowned by the Society of Friends.

The dates of births and marriages of the present and past three of four
generations, I feel quite sure, are correct for most of them I got first hand
and not through court records.  For dates, courts can be depended on, but not
always for correct spelling of names, but that, however, does not interfere
with tracing the name through to its common ancestor.

Each branch of the family represented here is distinct and separate and each
name has its number.  All one has to do is to find his name and number, then
he can trace his relationship to any other member of the family or branch,
also back to our common ancestor, John Ladd, No. (1) the immigrant.  For

                The following interest information of the ancient Ladd Manor in England, was
gathered by Donald M. Ladd, Jr. of 1034 Golden Way, Los Altos, Calif., when he
and his wife visited there in the Fall of 1962.

The name Ladd or Lade, both spellings belong distinctly to the same family, is
essentially Kentish.  The Estate of Bowick in the Hundred of Loningsborough
was in very ancient times, the residence of the Ladds.  The name traveled over
the border into Sussex but all documents point to the existence of but one
family of Ladds previous to the seventeenth century.  So wrote Mr. E. de
Vermont in 1886 in America Heraldic, the first major endeavor to regularize
armorial bearings of American citizens. He included only those arms brought to
the New World prior to 1800.

The Estate mentioned, called Bowick, Bowyck or, at present Boyke Manor, is
located at 
Otting in Elham Parish, Kent, the village of Elham lying closeby.  Of interest
is the fact that the first mention of the name occurs in documents of the
years 1122 to 1136 "Boiwiche" being the spelling given.  The meaning: "boy" or
"young man" plus "wic," a dwelling place, which would seem to mean the surname
of its owners.  Family charts generally begin with John Ladd, ob. 1475, though
of course, family occupancy antedated him considerably.  In the visitations of
Kent he is listed as John Lade of Otting in Elham.

Bowick, says Halsted's History of Kent, 18th century, is a manor in the
southwest part of Elham Parish, situated in the borough of its own name, which
was "in very ancient times" the residence of the Lads' who in several of their
old evidences were written De Lad.  The manor reputedly passed from the family
in 1601 through the marriage of Sylvester Ladd, daughter of one Vincent, into
the Nethersole Family.  Their wills, preserved in Canterbury, exist from time
of Henry VI. (15th century) They constantly styled themselves "of Elam."

The manor house which stands today is an example of the "Kentish Hall" house
and was begun about 1470, however, there are no longer manorial lands
connected with it.  Originally, a central hall was constructed, open from
floor to roof, without chimney, the fire burning in a central brazier and the
smoke escaping or, expected to do so, through slatted openings high up on the
walls.  On one side of the hall was a double story wing, one containing the
parlor and apartment of the owner and wife, the other the buttery and
accommodation for maids and children.  In the hall on the plastered tile floor
strewn with rush, the men servants slept.  Fireplaces were for the parlor or
the bed chambers.  Construction was a wattle, rock and plaster, secured by
great timbers of oak.

Many of these timbers came from decommissioned ships and may be seen in the
interior ceiling.  Later a great chimney was added and a second story was
built inside the hall.  One large beam near the entrance had its original
location in the old monastery of Elam, destroyed at the time of the
dissolution of ecclesiastical properties by Henry VIII.  Perhaps dating from
the same era is the secret room or "priest's hole" which can be entered by
pressing a section of Tudor paneling in the drawing room.  This room, on the
ground floor of one of the original "wings," boasts a large fireplace with
dark carved woodwork.  Interestingly enough, until the latter part of the
nineteenth century a ladder arrangement was used to climb upstairs.  Now there
is a pleasant staircase.

The appearance of Boyke Manor is striking.  Its facade, a National Monument,
is storybook Tudor: white with great dark beams, a few, by design, hewn from
curving branches; hip roof of tile; mullion windows, and a minimum of brick at
the foundation.  Boyke today also comprises a thatched barn, dovecote and
flower gardens.  Its ghost, a restless faceless monk, was exorcized in the

Ladwood, states Nasted, was another manor in Elham Parish, lying at its
eastern boundary next to the Parish of Acrise, to which it now belongs.  The
name was sometimes written Ladswood to signify that it was the property of the
Ladds of Boyke Manor.

The present house displays a brick exterior over the original Tudor
construction, with tile roof and is possessed of an 18th century addition set
at right angles to the house.  At an early date the Rolph family became the
owners.  The fireplace is the oldest part of the structure and may date from
an earlier era than the remainder of the habitation.  The house lies at the
bottom of a small valley of the same name - Ladwood.  On a ridge to the west
stands the ancient Lad Wood which gave its name to the old manor which was
first recorded as Ladwude in 1240.  The first individual owner known is one
William Ladd, 1304, who was doubtless lord of Boyke.

The Ladd Family has been quite prominent in England ever since William I,
surnamed the "Conqueror," King of England and Duke of Normandy, invaded
England in about 1060.  They were evidently loyal supporters and followers of
his, very likely officers in his army as they were granted land in Kent
County, not far from Hastings where the decisive battle - "Battle of
Hastings," was fought, in which he won the right and title to the Crown of
England.  Ever since that time, the family, spelling their names variously
according to the changes of time and circumstances, De Lad, Le Lad, Ladde and
Ladd, have held in that and adjoining counties.  Edward Wales Ladd, of London,
states that his ancestors, the first Lads came to England with William the
Conqueror from France and settled at Deal, Kent County, where a portion of
land was granted them.  His remote ancestors, he says, were searing people -
Government pilots at Margate. (Most of the above paragraph was gathered from
the "Ladd Family," but not verbatim, published by Warren Ladd, 1890.)

The Ladd coat of arms bears further proof that the Ladds were followers of the
Royal Family; for on the shield are three scallop shells which proof
designates that their ancestors had visited the Holy Land.  Now in 1096,
Robert, the eldest son of William, who, by succession should have been King -
but wasn't; mortgaged his right and title to Normandy to his brother for a
sufficient sum for him to join the Crusade to the Holy Land.  We deduced that
the younger generation of Ladds joined Robert - hence the scallop shells on
the Ladd coat of arms.  It is said, too, that during the middle ages, the
Pilgrims who visited the shrine of St. James at Campostella, ornamented their
clothing with scallop shells.  The latter is in Spain. (From encyclopedia and
"query column" of Richmond Times-Dispatch.)

There have been quite a few titled Ladds through the centuries as well as
representatives in Parliament.  Hastead, in his "History of Kent," says the
family is one of good antiquity in this country, in several parts of which
they were possessed of land which still bears their name. "In the history of
Hampshire, one William Ladd is mentioned as a juryman 1294 in the reign of
Edward I. In the History of Surry it is said that in 1325, King Edward II,
bought the Henle Manor which he granted to the Bishop of Exeter; the next year
he revoked the grant and transferred it to Walter Lad.  This manor contained
1,344 acres.  From 1713 to 1722, John Ladd represented Southwark in Surry in
Parliament; and was created a Baronet in 1740." (From the Ladd Family.)

"February 20, 1955 [should be 15??], Thomas Ladde was a witness to the will of
James Diggs of the Parish of Durham, Kent County, England.  The will was
proved November 20, 1540. (Va.  State Library.)

>From the Almanac of Liberty by William 0. Douglas, he mentions one Thomas
Ladd, a merchant, who, in 1607 had attended a secret meeting of an outlawed
religious group and was imprisoned by the high commission.  Nicholas Fuller,
as counsel sought his release by habeas corpus in the civil courts on the
ground that it was unlawful and that the Commission had no authority to impose
fines or to imprison men.  Fuller was fined 200 pounds and imprisoned for his

The following is from pages 1-3, The Ladd Family a Genealogy by Thomas Mifflin
Ladd III (1964).



The following pages contain the names (with a few exceptions) of all the
descendants of John Ladd, the immigrant who arrived in Charles City County,
Virginia in 1653; but these pages represent a very small percentage of John's
descendants.  At this date-1960, 307 years after his arrival in America, his
descendants must now number several thousand.  They can be found in every
state in the country.  Every once in a while we find a family who can trace
their ancestry back to John in Charles City County.  One of these families is
in Mobile, Alabama and has become very prominent.  Another in Los Angeles,
California, Donald M. Ladd, whose family is equally prominent.  It took them
nearly a hundred years to reach California after leaving Charles City County.
They have traced their direct line from John.  There are many others that are
not sure whether they are descended from the Virginia or the New England
        The next available record finds John in Lynnhaven Parish, Lower Norfolk
County, and from the following he was evidently a well established citizen as
his clear judgement was recognized by the court.  October 15, 1666, the court
appointed John Ladd and John Taylor, to settle a difference between Adam
Thoroughgood and Adam Snale, concerning the building of a church, after a jury
had failed to agree.  The Thoroughgood house is still standing and is said to
be the oldest brick house in Virginia.  Adam was a neighbor of John's.
        July 24, 1667 John was granted a tract of land in Henrico County on the north
side of "Four Mile Creek."  This was near the Charles City County line.  It is
believed that a part of this tract is still in the family of John's
descendants.  According to Warren Ladd; the old house was still standing in
1875.  Harold K. Nelson, who married Virginia Ladd, has a modern bungalow
across the road from the ruins of the old home, Virginia died several years
        John is migratory.  In 1672 he is back in Lynnhaven Parish where he sold 400
acres of land on the west side of Lynnhaven River to John Browning.  This sale
was confirmed and signed by Bethsheba Ladd, his wife, giving her consent and
sanction to the sale.
        May 25, 1673, John was granted 700 acres of land in Lynnhaven Parish, Lower
Norfolk County. (Now, Princess Anne County) The following is a record of the
grant in part:
"To whom all these presents shall come; 1, Sir William Berkley, Gent'l of
Virg. give and grant unto John Lad, seven hundred acres of land in the Prsh.
of Linhaven, the County of Lower Norfolk, on the Linhaven River.  Dimensions:
SSW 40 poles, then WSW 102 poles, then NNW 40 poles, then WSW 480 poles,
crossing the head of the rifer , then NNW 200 poles, then ENE 400 poles onto-
the deeper branch which is on the north side of the river, then down the
deeper branch unto the river and down the river unto the mouth of the lower
dam creek, then up the creek the same and prl branch unto the first beginning
        April 16, 1674, John sold this tract of land to Anthony Lawson.  "Lawson
Hall," a Garden-Week attraction, is believed to be a part of John Ladd's
grant, the original house, said to have been built in 1688 and to contain the
oldest formal gardens in Tidewater with many fine box.  No further record of
John is found in Lynnhaven Parish after he sold his grant to Lawson, nor his
wife Bethsheba.  Further proof that john's wife was Bethsheba, is found in the
will of Lancester Lovett, in his will of October 17, 1672, he mentions
Bethsheba, his daughter, as being the wife of John Ladd.
        The next available record of John is that of his will June 10, 1679 in
Henrico County, Va.  He had quite an estate.  His wife was then named Mary
(What became of Bethsheba?) whom he appointed whole and sole executrix of his
will.  He names one son, Amos, who fell heir to the larger part of the estate.
Three daughters, Elizabeth, Sarah and Rachell.  Mary, john's wife, was "with
child," who from later records we learn was William and from whom nearly all
the Virginia Ladds are descended.  This substantiates the fact that Bethsheba
is not our maternal ancestor [speaking of William's descendants]; it also
raises the question as to whether there were two John Ladds.  Some authorities
think so.  Our records and deductions make us think otherwise; in 1672, he
sold 400 acres to John Browning, Bethsheba signed the papers; in 1674, he sold
his grant to Anthony Lawson; if Bethsheba signed these papers confirming this
sale, we failed to see them.  We believe she must have passed on and that John
went back to his first grant, and plantation in Henrico County, at which place
he died six years later.  This plantation he leaves in his will to his unborn
child (William) after the death of his wife Mary.  John, however, saw this son
born to him in his retiring years.

(5)    William Ladd, (6) bo.  June 1679, ma.  Huldah Binford, June 18, 1701.
He died September 27, 1751, and was burried in the family burying ground at
his home near Curles, Henrico Co. Va.
        The following is from: "A Collection of Memorials Concerning the People
Called Quakers." A book of about 200 pages printed in Philadelphia in t I he
1700s. (Mrs.  Frischkorn, a descendant, owned the book.)

        "William Ladd, son of John and Mary Ladd, both of Old-England, was born near
Curls in Virginia, in the sixth month, 1679, and about the time of his
marriage he moved to wainoke, became a minister of that meeting, and resided
there the remainder of his life.  He had an acceptable gift in the ministry,
and was a great sufferer for bearing a testimony against the hireling
ministers.  In one instance, a very exorbitant seizure was made upon his
affects, yet he lived to see the officer who made it reduced to such low
circumstances, that he charitably contributed to supply his necessities. He
continued a faithful sufferer to the end of his days, encour- (sic.) all in
this world! The night of his decease, one of the family saying, this was to be
a night of great sorrow to them. He replied, it was a night of great joy to
him, which was one of his last expressions. He died the 27th of the ninth
month, 1751, and was buried in the family burying-ground near his home, age
seventy-two, and a minister about 25 years."

(22)    Thomas Ladd, son of Amos (14), and Sarah Binford, was born in Charles
City County, Virginia, October 16, 1789, and lived there until he was about 25
years old.  August 7, 1799, he married Ann Bell, Daughter of Nathan Bell,
owner of Bell Tavern, at which place it is said that Generals Washington and
Lafayette and staff were entertained at a sumptuous ball at the close of the
Revolutionary War.

Thomas was a surveyor but became a leader in business, civic and religious
circles; having followed his profession as a surveyor until he was about 25.
His old account book shows many places in Charles City and surrounding
counties that he has surveyed.  It
seems, too, that he also helped his father, Amos, who had an extensive
business; General merchandise store as well as banking and loans.  After the
death of his father, the books show that he carried on the business until the
estate was settled.  The account book of Amos shows dates from 1775 to 1790
with indebtedness to him of several thousand pounds.  His ledger carries the
names of practically every family in Charles City and many surrounding
counties; among these prominent families are, The Byrds of Westover; John
Tyler, father of the President; John Wickham, the Waddills, Major Willcox,
Major Munford, (last two my wife's ancestors) Bowler Cocke, the Christians,
the Roysters and many other names that are equally prominent today after about
160 years.
        The account book of Thomas Ladd, shows dates from 1790 to 1834, which was the
year of his death.  The following is a letter to him from Bowler Cocke:

Turkey Island
14th Jan'y. 1794.
Mr. Thomas Ladd,
Charles City:
At the request of Mr. Parsons and Mr. Cary Pleasants, I inform you that
Tuesday next is the day they have appointed to divide the Green's Quarter
Land; and they expect you to do it for them.  I shall be glad of your company
here to breakfast on that day so that we may all set out togetrer.
                                1 am respectfully
                                Yours most obedt.
                                (signed) Bowler Cocke, (sealed with ward)
        Shortly after this date, Thomas went to Richmond, and the next year was
operating a flower mill under the firm name of Ladd, Anthony and Co. January
1796, Thomas was in Philadelphia for the purpose of buying wheat which at that
time seemed very scarce, also marketing his flower, and at the same time
attending "Quaker" meetings.  While there he received a letter from his
partner stating that Thomas Maule wanted to join the firm as a silent partner
with an investment of a thousand pounds, which he did, but later resigned his
interest with the firm and went into the soap and candle business at which he
was very successful; leaving quite an estate.  Though a Quaker, he and his
wife Margaret, are buried in Old St. Johns Church Cemetery; their vaults can
be seen from Broad Street in the northeast corner.
Besides running flower mills, Thomas was active in other endeavors.  Records
show that he supplied the iron used in the building of the State Penitentiary;
and later he served two or more terms on its Board of Inspectors.  In 1802 and
again in 1803, records show that this board of -- which he was a member sent
in their resignation to the Governor.  In 1802, the Governor asked that this
board serve another term.
>From the "Calendar of State Papers" March 19, 1803, Charles Johnson-Thomas
Ladd wrote and signed a statement for the directors of Public Printing to be
turned in to the governor, showing how the Public Printer was to be paid.
Meriwether Jones was the Public Printer.  On another occasion, Thomas was
called into Governor Cabell's Office for consultation along with other
business and professional men, among them was James Monroe, later President of
the United States.
For a number of years, Thomas' work was in court houses throughout the state,
making reports of court proceedings, copies of depositions and the like for
those who required such reports and depositions.  The following from Thomas'
account book gives an idea of what that work was:
        "7 mo. 1810, Report on Gilliams vs Flemming, for Thomas
         Jefferson, Albemarle County, 179 hours at 750 - $134.50,
        copy of deposition 830, copy of report, $14.85, total, $150.18."
Thomas Jefferson paid the bill in three installments of $50. each, No records
show that he paid the balance of 18 cents.

Thomas was for many years Master Commissioner in the City of Richmond, the
title of this office has long since been changed.  A similar office today is
that of clerk of the court.  The following will give an idea of its function:

"Commissioner's Office.
Richmond, 5 mo. 2nd. 1827.
The parties interested are desired to take notice that I have appointed the
twenty sixth day of the 11th month (November) next for commencing the
examination of accounts directed by the within order of the court, on which

                                 (the writing is like that of a copybook)
Being a devout Quaker, Thomas was, of course, opposed to slavery.  The
following affidavit is recorded in Hustings Court, City Hall, Richmond,
"I Thomas Ladd, of the City of Richmond, believing freedom to be the natural
right of all mankind and having a boy by the name of James, (who calls himself
James Brown) aged twenty one years of the 25th day of the 12th month next and
whom I hereby emancipate and set free, relinquishing for myself and my heirs
all my right title interest and claim to him or any property or estate he may
acquire after he arrives at the age of twenty one years - Witness my hand and
seal this 14th day of the 4th month 1806."

                                             THOMAS A TRAVELER

Thomas spent a great deal of his time on the road.  Through the years he
traveled throughout a greater part of the country attending "Yearly Meetings"
of the Society of Friends of which he was a leader.  Letters show that he
attended meetings in Philadelphia, New York, Rhode Island, Ohio, Tennessee and
those held in Virginia.  We must remember that the United States was quite
small in those days, the regions west of the Mississippi River -mentioned as
parts unknown.

Distance made very little difference to our sturdy ancestors in those early
days.  There were almost no roads - except the "Post Roads."The horse was his
only mode of transportation - at that time, "man's best friend." But 'they
went whenever and wherever the occasion required.  They had every known horse-
drawn conveyance, the condition of the roads determined which to use.  If it
was too muddy for the carriage or the barouche, they used the gig or chair, if
too rough for either of these, Thomas saddled the horse, which after all was
most practical for the average road - also faster.  Nathan B. Ladd, stated
that he averaged 40 miles a day in his barouche over rugged country, going
from Richmond, Virginia, to Shelbyville, Kentucky.  Thomas may have taken a
sailboat on his trips to Philadelphia: New York and Rhode Island, but it is
doubtful, and his letters didn't tell us.  Many of his letters went by boat
with 25 cents postage.  Travel was slow and arduous; taverns were nearly
always crowded, travelers often had to sleep on the floor and sometimes with
the horses and, of course, at other times under the stars.
Miss Mary Stanley, an acquaintance of many years ago, a Quaker and a school
teacher from Greensboro, N.C., said she was brought up on the teachings from a
book on Quakerism by Thomas Ladd, she promised to send the book but died
before she could locate it.  Her mother, she said, dressed in the quaint
Quaker style.
Going back a generation, we find that Sarah Binford Ladd, mother of Thomas
also had a liking for travel, even though they were short trips from Charles
City to Richmond - long in those days, to her shopping.  February 22, 1797,
(Washington's birthday, but he was still living) she bought of Jacob Cohen,
"chair and harness" for 20 pounds; the chair was similar to the chaise or gig
-the type of conveyance in which Thomas Jefferson drove to and from
Philadelphia while living at Monticello.  The highways must have been rough,
for a month after Sarah bought her chair, she paid A. Querier, one pound and
four shillings for work on the chair.

The following is from pages 6-10, The Ladd Family a Genealogy by Thomas
Ladd III (1964).



December 24, 1796, Sarah paid 12 shillings for coffee and sugar; three weeks
later she paid 16 shillings and 6 pence for sugar and coffee.  But fish could
be bought for a "proverbial song;" in 1796, she paid Bowler Cocke one pound
and 5 shillings for 20 shad and 500 herrings - all those fish! For whom?

Sarah didn't have inner-spring nor foam-rubber mattresses but she had the best
that period could supply.  April 15, 1797, she paid four pounds and 8
shillings for "bedticks," evidently goose feathers or down.  Taxes were not so
high except on luxuries; tax on Sarah's chair was almost as much as on her

Sarah had a way of "holding out," she often bought articles and listed them as
sundries.  On one occasion she paid 8 pounds and 19 shillings for sundries; on
another shopping spree, her sundries amounted to 5 pounds and 19 shillings.
Most of her shopping was done at Thomas Gilliatt's.  August 17, 1797, she paid
15 shillings and nine pence for 31/2 yards of "humhums," humhums really came
high; she also bought several yards of "quinn."


It is interesting to know how our ancestors lived - the high and low cost of
living, their heating, lighting and water system, their method of cooking.
Were we to be suddenly ushered into that period - well, we'd think we had been
awakened in another world.  We wouldn't know how to prepare a meal; their
cooking was done mostly in a huge fireplace over hot coals; pots and kettles
were swung into the fireplace - and out again after cooking on an iron arm,
anchored into the chimney.  On either side of he fireplace inside the chimney
were compartments for keeping food warm and for baking bread.  A visit to
Mount Vernon will show you how our ancestors did their cooking.  The kitchen
is equipped as it was in Washington's time.  The well as their source of water
supply - unless one was fortunate to have a spring, such as the one at
Brookville - one with a continuous flow.

Coal was bought by the bushel, usually 25 at $3.75 a bushel. The coal dealers
were John Royster; Daniel Triplett and John Cunliff.  On one occasion they
bought 75 bushels, that was Christmas Eve, 1808, evidently expecting a roaring
hot Christmas, with only a fireplace to heat with it -- no furnace, no stove
nor range, but a fireplace in each room in the house.  The Fall and Winter of
1808, they bought 375 bushels.

November 19, 1808, they paid Thomas Maule, $6.25 for candles, bought by the CW
(hundred weight.) Those candles were not bought for ornamentation or
decoration-that was their "lighting system." Imagine one hundred candles
placed about a room to supplement one of our 100-watt electric light bulbs.
Thomas Maule also supplied the family with soap. (Incidentally, Thomas Maule's
brother, Ebenezer, married Sarah Ladd, sister of Thomas.)

September 19, 1808, they paid Isaac Webster $6 for a barrel of flour - high
for those days!  Two months later, a half barrel for three dollars.  Meal
wasn't so high.  John Bell, Ann's brother in Hanover County sold them meal at
67 cents a bushel, eight bushels in two months.  All this flour and meal
suggest either huge appetites or a large family - maybe both.  Coffee was
evidently higher than it is today - but how could it be?  January 2, 1829, Ann
paid $18.24 for a bag of coffee - must have been more than a pound - maybe a
bushel bag -- green, and had to be roasted, toasted and ground, but what
coffee, what aroma!

Quakers, we thought, were opposed to jewelry or any kind of show or finery -
not so with Ann; she sported a $130 18-carat gold watch with key and seal,
given to her by Thomas, February 21, 1821; made by Robert Roskell of
Liverpool.  A timepiece, but somewhat of a show for a Quaker -- but who could
blame her?  She liked to have nice things which did not necessarily mean she
was vain; on January 24, 1824, she paid $100 for a black horse.  She drove a
span of them to her carriage.  Two years later, she bought a new carriage - we
suppose.  August 7, 1826, she paid Bosher $450 for carriage and harness.  For
a Hanover girl, Ann really got about. (Bosher Carriage Shop was still in
business when I came along one hundred years later.)


Brookville has been in the Ladd family since 1823, when on April 15th of that
year, Ann Ladd, wife of Thomas, bought of Jacob Smith, through Nathaniel C.
Crenshaw, the tract of land on Old North Road, extending from the present
Norwood Avenue to the "Brook," a distance of about a mile and a half; being a
part of the land of the legatees of Allen Williamson, deceased.  At that time
it was about four miles from the Richmond City limits, but which now extends
to the southern boundary of the original plantation.

The old home is just beyond the end of Chamberlayne Avenue, at a point where
No. 2 Highway takes over the passes at an oblique angle through the old farm
and about 75 yards to the rear of the house which was built many years prior
to the Revolutionary War, a construction definitely of that early period:
sharp roof with dormer windows, three in the front and two in the back; broad
chimneys at each end of the house, two at the south end.  It has the original
beaded weather-boarding, none has ever been replaced; many of the timbers were
hewn with the axe and put together with wooden pegs, pins or dowels.

The house faces due east; the front porch, which in recent years has been
rebuilt and enlarged, leads into a wide hall which runs through the house to a
large enclosed back porch.  Doors on each side of the hall lead into large
high-pitched rooms.  A stairway at the back leads to the floor above and into
a short wide hall. (In the 1880s this was my Brother Bernard's room and was
called the "rope bed" room; the rope bed which was his, had no slats nor
springs, but ropes crossed from side rails and from head to foot-boards, on
which was placed the mattress - foam-rubber had nothing on this.) Doors on
each side of this room lead into two large rooms with partially slanting
ceilings.  This house, like most homes of this type built before the
Revolution, was one-room deep.  In 1830, Ann's account book shows that she
added an addition to the Brookville house, which accounts for the large back
room and the enclosed back porch of the same size.

A half basement runs the length of the house; it's only outside entrance is at
the south end, and leads into the kitchen, which is also the dining room.  The
middle room has always been the summer dining room.  The north room was the
storage place for vegetables, canned goods and the like.  There was a huge
fireplace in the kitchen in which cooking was done in the ante bellum days.
About five feet from the hearth on one side of the chimney was a closed
compartment, supposedly an oven where food was cooked or kept warm from the
heat of the fireplace.

To the south of the house, about 20 yards, there was a large two-story
building which was the servants quarters, but one room on the lower floor was
the kitchen where food as prepared for the family in the dwelling house.
Beautifully terraced gardens were in the rear of the home, extending about a
hundred yards to the west property line in which there were fruit trees,
berries, hazelnuts and flowers and shrubs of that day.

Ann, in writing, sometimes spoke of the place as Brookville, and again as the
country home.  The Ladd home in Richmond was located on the west side of First
Street between Cary and Canal Streets.  Robert B. Munford, Jr. in his "Old
Homes of Richmond," speaks of it as the "Handsome Old Stucco Home of the
Ladds." In her will in 1836, besides Brookville, Ann left a tract of land in
Charles City County, one in Grayson County, one in Hanover County, a warehouse
on the "Basin," interest in Bell Tavern; and the "Town House." (The Basin was
at Tenth and Canal Streets where the canal widened into a large circular pool
or basin in which the canal boats turned for their return trips.)

Thomas Mifflin, son of Thomas and Ann Bell Ladd, carried his bride Lucy
Elizabeth Cowardin to Brookville, August 7, 1841, where they spent their
entire married life.  He died in 1866, Lucy Elizabeth in 1905.  To this union
there were eight children and 45 grandchildren.  Benjamin Franklin, the
youngest son was living there at the time of death, December 17, 1947.  He was
89 years old, was born at Brookville and spent most of his life on the farm.
The home until recently was owned by his son and daughter, William Cole Ladd,
and Mrs. Robert J. Blount.

During the War-between-the-States, Brookville was a scene of activity, with
Confederate troops camped on the place just outside the yard for several
months.  Breast-works were thrown up just north of the house beginning at a
point about 25 yards from the northwest corner and extending along the brow of
the hill for about 100 yards to the "Rifle-pit" and to the battery
fortifications which consisted of several conical shaped mounds about 12 feet
high and 25 feet in diameter at the base of each, with space between for easy
movement of the "field pieces."  There the battery was planted, from which
point there was a commanding view of the valley below and for several miles to
the north and west.  "Yellow Tavern (where J. E. B. Stuart fell) to the
northwest could be seen from here and was within easy range of a Howitzer.
General Grant was expected to attack Richmond from that direction.

>From the time of the war until recent years, this site was always known as the
"battery" and the "rifle-pit." A few years ago, the breastworks were leveled
off, and where the cannon once held forth, homes have been built.

On one occasion Federal troops camped on the south side of Brookville, in the
woods along Pole Road, or Military Road, now Norwood Avenue.  Thomas Mifflin
and his wife, Lucy Elizabeth were passing the camp on their way home from
visiting a sick neighbor.  Thomas was then in his 60's.  The "Yanks" decided
they'd like to have Tommy as a prisoner, so they invited him in, he, of
course, accepted, the invitation being accompanied with gun and bayonet.  Lucy
Elizabeth didn't like the idea of being separated from her husband, so she
insisted on being made a prisoner also, but after consultation between the
officer and guard, she was told they had no place for her; she turned sadly
home alone.  But not for long.  A few hours after his arrest, the "Johnny
Rebs" came along, started making things hot for the "Yanks" and in the
skirmish "Grandpop" got away and "hotfooted" home - without a battle-scar.

During the fight, bullets whistled about the old home, several struck but did
no damage.  While the battle was going on the family sought safety in the
basement - all but one daughter, Jane McKenzie Ladd, who went up on the third
floor where she could get a better view of the show and sang "Dixie" to the
tune of the whistling bullets.

The following is from pages 10-16, The Ladd Family a Genealogy by Thomas
Ladd III (1964).



About 80 yards from the house and in a southerly direction down a winding path
to a delightfully shaded glen, about 25 feet below the level of the house,
flows a spring of clear, cool sparkling water that has supplied the household
for more than one hundred and fifty years.  This cool restful spot on hot
summer days, shaded by half a dozen huge ancient beech trees, (they seem about
the same size today as they did 70 years ago.) one is scarcely aware of the
summer's beat, for there the temperature is 15 to 20 degrees lower than that
on the outside.  The flow of the spring is at the rate of about a thousand
gallons a day.

In the days of our grandparents - and before refrigeration, there was a
"spring house" which was built around the spring where milk, butter and other
food that required refrigeration, were kept.  The spring is about three feet
square and about three feet deep, formed by four huge slabs of gray granite,
each about six inches thick, resting on another which formed the bottom, each
cut to fit.  All the water had to be carried to the house (how well do I

In recent years and with the insight and ingenuity of Bob Blount, modern
machinery was set up, pipes laid, now the old Pre-Revolutionary house has, not
only water from the spring, but modern plumbing throughout, as well as outlets
about the place for watering flowers and vegetation-without the germ-killing

(29)    Thomas Mifflin Ladd, Son of Thomas (22) and Ann Bell Ladd was born in
Richmond, Virginia, May 5, 1800.  He grew up as a Quaker, spoke the quaker
tongue - "thee," "thou," " thy," etc, as was the custom in those days - 160
years ago.  But it is believed it was spoken and written within the family
circles and with Quaker friends and not in business life.  In about 1830,
letters show that it had been dropped by the younger generation, but their
parents continued as they were reared.  Thomas was "Mifflin" to his-family and
intimate friends, he evidently did not like it as he signed himself "Thos.  M.

The Quaker rules and principles were very strict, they had to abide by them or
be "disowned" by the society.  He seemed to have been a very good Quaker until
after the death of his father, who was one of their leaders.  October 10,
1834, he was disowned by the society for "neglecting meeting worship," was
reinstated, but later let out for good.  He did about everything a Quaker
shouldn't do.  He liked to dance; he played the violin; he liked his toddy.
He was in command of a military organization, of which a Quaker would have no
part.  It is said that after drill or parade, he would take his company or
battalion in and have them served refreshments.  He was a member of the "Sons
of Temperance," Shockoe Hill Division, No. 4, but when he was 48 years old, he
asked to be released.  A certificate dated April 24, 1848 shows that his
withdrawal was granted.  This does not by any means suggest that he was a
"drinking man." His friends were legion; he liked to entertain, and he did it
in the manner of a "Southern Gentleman." It is said that one time, he knew
every man, woman and child in Richmond.  He was a "Gay Cavalier;" he played
the lottery; he was adventurous; it is said that on a bet, he rode his horse
up the steps of St. Clair Hotel.  But with all his frivolity he was very
popular. (About 40 years after his death, I met several of his friends - all
in their 80s, but in their teens or young men when they knew him; each had a
coincident to relate
about him, among whom were John L. Williams, the banker, Valentine, Richmond's
famous sculptor, B. A. Bargaman, a businessman, and others.)

He was a Civil Engineer, a family profession dating from the time John Ladd
and William Penn, surveyed and layed out Philadelphia.  He was City Engineer
for the City of Richmond from 1850, or earlier, to the time of his death in
1866. In those days this office was known as "City Surveyor." His office was
in Lafayette Hall.

He was Marshall of Parade and Ceremonies when the body of President Monroe was
brought to Richmond in 1858 for burial in Hollywood Cemetery. (From "Richmond,
her Past and Present." By Christian.)

When he was 40 years old he fell in love with a young lady who was attending
Jane MacKenzie School for young ladies, a very popular school of that day -
Lucy Elizabeth Cowardin, daughter of John Lewis Cowardin and sister of James
Andrew Cowardin, founder of the Richmond Dispatch, 1850.  They were married
August 7, 1841.  She survived him - by nearly 40 years. There was a difference
of nearly 20 years in their ages. They are both burried in the cemetery of
Emmanuel Episcopal Church, of which they were charter members.

Lucy Elizabeth was born December 22, 1819, in the wilds of the Valley of
Virginia. She was a descendant of John Lewis, of Ireland, a Huguenot family
who escaped persecution in France.  He married Margaret Lynn of the Ioch Lynns
of Scotland, who had fled to Ireland, also to escape religious persecution.
She was a woman of refinement and culture. John Lewis and Margaret, his wife
are said to be the first family to settle in the Valley of Virginia.  Their
first home was a log cabin built on an Indian Trail about two miles east of
the present Staunton, the first town in the Valley which he, himself, laid
out.  He also built a fort, known as Fort Lewis. Later, he built Bellefonte
which is still standing, in which he died February 1, 1762, at the age of 84
years.  This home is about a mile east of Staunton. The outside has been faced
with brick and has the appearance of a modern home, but the interior is still
very much as John built it in about 1750.

As there were no schools in the Valley of Virginia, it is natural to believe
that Lucy and her brothers and sisters got their early or primary education
from their Mother, Mary (Polly) Rhodes White, who before her marriage to John
Lewis Cowardin, had been a private tutor to young ladies.  Her mother died in
Danville in 1830; her father died several years later and is buried in
Montgomery County, Virginia.  James Andrew Cowardin, after his mother's death,
set out on foot to Richmond, to begin his career as a newspaperman.  He being
the oldest and through his influence, after a few years, he had induced most
of his family to join him in Richmond.  Lucy and her brother William were then
living in Woodstock, Virginia near the West Virginia line - in Shenandoah
County.  They drove from there to Richmond in a "Gig," a distance of nearly
200 miles, which took them over two or three mountain ranges, stopping
wherever night overtook them; requiring about six days to make the trip
journey, as they would say.

descendant of the Winston, Fontaine and Maury families.  She died November 23,
1885.  He married Katherine Frances Childress, of Handover County, January 29,

Thomas M., II, was born and reared at Brookville, he received his early
education at private schools in Richmond, which was interrupted when he
enlisted in the Confederate Army.  After the war, there were reverses, then
his father died in January 1866 and his education was never completed.  Thomas
was versatile, had a mechanical and inventive mind, was capable, proficient in
the various lines of the building trades.  He was musical and could play
almost any musical instrument.  He enlisted in the Confederate Army at the age
of 18; joined Carrington's Battery in the fall of 1862.  The spring of 1863 he
went home on a ten-day furlough.  The next day he broke out with the measles.
When he was well and went back, he was transferred to Company E, 25th Virginia
Battalion, (then called Ellets Battalion.) William L. Maule, Captain Louis J.
Bosseau, Major.  This battalion was sent to help stop Killpatrick who was
making a raid down Brook Turnpike, with the idea of taking Richmond.  He was
met at about where Walton Avenue crosses Brook Road, now, No. I Highway.  A
hot fight took place.  The battalion lost about 40 men, killed or wounded.  At
this-time, John Bell Ladd was a member of this company.  On July 12, 1864,
while they were doing "out post" at "Cox Barn" below Richmond, on the James
River; the "Yanks" made a daybreak surprise attack, John Bell Ladd was
captured and was sent to Elmira Prison, New York, where he was imprisoned
until June 1865 - came home almost a skeleton.

John Bell Ladd, like his brother, also had an inventive mind; he invented and
perfected two working models of writing machines for the blind, each was
demonstrated to the blind with success.  There was an immediate demand for
them by the blind but none but the two models were ever built.  This was about
the time that typewriters came into use.  One necessary feature, especially
for the blind, was the bell that sounded at the end of the line -a feature of
all the early typewriters.  He was satisfied with what he had accomplished,
then he turned to something else.  He would have rendered a great service to
the blind had he put his efforts to the manufacture of t e machines - maybe
wealth for himself.

(42)  Robert Anderson Ladd, of Henrico County, son of Thomas M. (29) and Lucy
E. Ladd, married A. M. Lawrence.

Robert was born at Brookville, October 3, 1853, where he spent his early life
managing the farm for his mother, which was later purchased and taken over by
his younger brother, Benjamin Franklin.  For about 40 years, Robert, better
known as Bob or Uncle Bob was connected with the Ginter Land and Improvement
Company.  His work was that of improving and beautifying the roads, avenues
and parkways.  He supervised the setting out of practically all the trees that
are now enjoyed by the residents of Ginter Park, Bellevue and West Brook, also
on Brook Tunrpike from Wilmer Avenue to the Richmond City limits, a distance
then of about three miles.  About 1911 he bought three acres of land at
Brookville on Ladd Lane where he built a large home to accommodate his growing
family of then eight children.  He named his home "Beech Hill," because of a
large number of huge beech trees in the wooded dale to the west of his home
where he enjoyed many years of retirement.
He was truly a "Gentleman of the old South," hospitable and generous.  His
kind could hardly be duplicated, he was whimsical and had a strong sense of
humor.  He was a member of Emmanuel Episcopal Church at Brook Road and Wilmer
Avenue; and a vestryman for a number of years, a member of the Brotherhood of
St. Andrew, and President of the Bible Class when he died.  He is buried in
the family plot at Emmanuel.

The following is from pages 16-21, The Ladd Family a Genealogy by Thomas
Ladd III (1964).


(45)  Bernard Goodall Ladd, of Washington, D.C., formerly of Richmond, Va.,
son of Thomas M. III and Sarah Mildred Ladd, was born at "Upton," now known as
lakeside; it was the home of his maternal grandfather, Nathaniel King, who
owned all that tract of land from Lakeside Avenue and Hilliard Road extending
north and westward into "Hungry," which is now a small. city within the
boundary lines of the original plantation.  Bemard's Great-grandfather, James
Hill, owned the tract of land that included the lake (mill pond) which
extended east to the Brook Turnpike and northward to and including "Yellow
Tavern." About 75 yards below the pond was a huge mill - three stories high,
for grinding wheat and corn.  The machinery was operated by an immense
overshot, waterwheel which got its Power from a millrace leading from the
pond. In about the middle-of the 1700s there was an attempt made by group of
immigrants to establish a cocoonery and silk mill there Plans were made,
mulberry trees were set out but the project never reached the productive
stage.  An epidemic, it was said, (frequent in those days) claimed half the
group and brought to an end the beginning of a silk industry.  Many of the
huge mulberry trees were still standing in the 1890s, which was evidence that
there had been a beginning.  No records.  The story was told by Mr. Garland
Clarke, who operated the mill in the 1870s and 1880s. (Incidentally he was a
cousin of the Ladds, his grandmother was Rebecca Bell.)

Bernard's early schooling began at old Ruffner School near Yellow Tavern and
later at Brook School.  After graduation he entered the American Locomotive
Works as a machinist apprentice After finishing his apprenticeship he toured
the country, finally stopping at Washington, D.C., where he entered the Navy
Yard and where he remained for 35 years.

The greater part of those years was spent in the "Sight shop," but on
occasions he was sent to various Navy Yards where Battle ships had put in for
repairs.  It was his job to overhaul, adjust o install new sights on the
larger guns.

At the outbreak of World War One, he was loaned by the Government to the
Bethlehem Steel Co., with the title of Consulting Engineer.  At the close of
the war, he was returned to the Navy Yard at Washington, D.C.

His greatest achievement is the work he did for his fellow workers while in
the Navy Yard; and the results of that labor is now being enjoyed by every
Civil Service employee in the United States.  H spent years of untiring
efforts striving to bring about retirement with pension for Civil Service
workers.  He is called "Father of the Civil Service Retirement Bill.  "He was
also a great factor in sponsoring the "Annual Leave Bill."  At the turn of the
century, he, a chairman of a committee from his local Machinist Union, where
the idea was born, comprised mostly of Navy Yard men, visited President
Theodore Roosevelt at his summer home at Oyster Bay to solicit his support in
the "Bill."  The President received them very cordially, was in sympathy with
their efforts and did support the bill when it came up.  The bill was passed.
Not only the Navy Yard workers who fostered the idea, but all Civil Service
employees were benefited.

A few years later, the efforts of Bernard Goodall Ladd and his co-workers were
being felt over the entire nation, for most of the States and City Governments
began adopting a similar retirement with pay, as well as annual leave.  And
each year more and more are beginning to enjoy the benefits and pleasure of
retirement and leave; the idea of which was conceived by Bernard Ladd and his
fellow workers in the Washington, D.C. Navy Yard.  These men saw far into the
future - security and comfort in the sunset of life.  (A fore-runner of our
present Social Security.)

When Mr. Ladd retired from the Navy Yard in 1933, he was accorded an honor
never before achieved by a Civil Service employee -- nor since, a concert by
the United States Navy Band at his retirement exercises, at which there was an
attendance of more than a thousand.

For more than twenty five years Mr. Ladd was very active - and one of the
founders of Camp Good Will, just outside Washington, D.C., organized for the
benefit of underprivileged children.  Each weekend from June 15 to September
15, unless otherwise prevented, Mr. Ladd was there, usually taking with him
some high official from Washington to help entertain the boys.  Franklin D.
Roosevelt, then Assistant Secretary of the Navy was one of his most frequent
visitors.  He talked, told jokes, played ball with the boys, and ate with them
on their long picnic tables.

Mr. Ladd has served on the Draft Board without compensation since First World
War; is now on the Board of Appeals, (a court of last resort,) and still
without pay.  But he has been honored with a special ceremony and dinner at
Fort Myer, where he received a medal, pin and commission from the President.

Bernard has always been active in civic and Church affairs, he is a member of
Christ Episcopal Church, Washington, D.C. which he has attended since 1898,
the Church which General Shepherd, Commandant of the Marine Corps is also a
member, they have both served together as vestrymen.  When in Korea, the
General paid a visit to Bernard's grandson, Bernard, III, a Master Sergeant.

Bernard was brought up in the Sunday School and Church of Emmanuel Episcopal
Church at Brook Hill, Henrico County, Virginia, the Church of which his
grandparents were charter members, the Church in which Bernard was baptized
and confirmed.

"Secretary of the Navy Curtis D. Wilber has sent a letter of Commendation to
Captain Shaler Ladd Marine detachment, U.S.S. Maryland, who commanded the five
inch battery aboard that vessel, which but but recently shattered all records
for hitting the target.
The letter says in part: The five-inch battery, U.9.S. Maryland, manned by the
Marine guard under your command, attained the highest merit (97.100) made by a
battleship gun division of this caliber at short-range battle practice,
1927-1928, thereby establishing a new Navy record for high gun pointer, high
gun and high-division manning this type of gun.
Captain Ladd and the Marines who manned the battery aboard the Maryland were
complimented in the letter for their great teamwork in establishing a new
world record for this caliber of gun, and furthermore for the extra high
average attained in the 1927 target-record year, with the same battery of
five-inch gums."

Incidentally, Bernard Goodall Ladd of Washington, D.C. was responsible for the
accuracy of the gun sights.  He was sent alone from the Washington Navy Yard
to install and calibrate the sights, not only on the five-inch guns, but all
the guns on the Battleship Maryland - including the 16-inch guns.

On August 14, 1901, he married Edith Copeland Gosnell, daughter of Sally
Dearing and Jesse Talbert Gosnell of Baltimore, Maryland.  She died September
3, 1956, he is now living with his daughter, Mrs. Charles Keith Johnson, 4422
Davenport Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.

The following is from pages 28-30, The Ladd Family a Genealogy by Thomas
Ladd III (1964).

SKETCH OF NATHAN BELL LADD Nathan Bell, son of Thomas and Ann Bell Ladd, was born in Richmond, December 9, 1808, married Katherine Finney, to whom was born one daughter, Bell, who married Benjamin Dickerson of Hanover County. In his younger days, Nathan was quite a wander-er and traveled over a large part of the country. Transportation was slow, there were no trains, nor steamboats, sailboats were uncertain but he took them at times. There was, of course, the stagecoach but it took a lot of courage to travel in one; with runaway horses, overturned coaches, holdups and other dangers. Nathan preferred his own private transportation. He and a friend left Richmond the first of August, 1892 in a "barouche" intending to go to Cincinnati, Ohio, taking the old "Three Notched Road" now known as the Three chopt Road which was nothing more than a sandy road, muddy when wet but was heavily traveled by "Westward-bound Pioneers."' On going down the Blue Ridge Mountains, his horse fell, broke both shafts and the top of the barouche and injured his horse. "With great difficulty" he states, "we got into Staunton where I sold the horse and barouche for half what they cost and bought a riding horse." He continued his trip to Shelbville, Kentucky on horseback. He does not speak of his companion other than "we" which could have included his horse. Nathan gives such a graphic description of his trip that one can almost see the rich farm lands, the villages and the beautiful countryside unfold as he travels along. The corn, tobacco, hemp and other crops, like none that he had ever seen in his own state. Hemp, he says, is considered the most profitable crop, equally as much so as tobacco is in Virginia. Corn such as he had -never seen, some, he said would yield 20 barrels to the acre, and had had no rain since it was planted. He describes the people, the towns and villages through which he passes; villages as thick as in the northern states, he has passed through 15, the smallest about a thousand inhabitants -- full of industry. Nathan's letter was dated Shelbyville, Kentucky, August 1832, (two weeks after he left Richmond). In his letter he states his reason for not going to Cincinnati. He learned that smallpox was raging there so he stopped with friends at Shelbyville. In letters that follow, he speaks of many friends and relatives who had preceded him there. He is stopping with "Sam's Uncle," (Harwood) and several of his acquaintances live close by, among them Landon Webster, Dr. Mosby, Polly Pleasants -- and others. In his next letter he had been to Louisville, Kentucky for the past two or three days for the purpose of going into business there with another young man, but when he arrived there he found that cholera was raging and was afraid to venture. The number of deaths the day before he arrived was 15 and rapidly increasing. The people here wear pitch plasters on their stomachs as a preventive against taking the disease, not a single person has died that wore one. "I've got one on and if they are not worn in Richmond, I think all of you had better use them." He thinks that if they don't prevent cholera, they are undoubtedly beneficial to a person with a weak constitution. Nathan is getting restless again; in his next letter he is planning to go to New Orleans, though he is afraid it may be more sickly there than in Ky. He likes Kentucky, he thinks the country between Lexington and Frankford "cannot be excelled by any in the United States in respects to beauty and richness of soil." But he is rather saddened to see that the country people are rather indolent at this time of the year with most of their employed in sporting. The buildings are mostly brick and the best he had seen anywhere. In June 1834, we find our wanderer in Baton Rouge, La. He had been there some time and was doing exceptionally in business. In Au-gust of the same year he is back in Richmond. His father died in May. He evidently felt that he was needed at home. He settled in Hanover Country near Mechanicsville on a part of a tract left by his grand-father, Nathan Bell. On the original plantation is the family cemetery, now the home of the Starkes, descendants of Nathan Bell. Nathan had two brothers who were druggist. William Penn, who married Sarah Sherman. The City Directory of 1845 gave the address of his store as 125 West Broad Street; in 1846, he was at 123 East Broad Street; 1852, he was at 118 East Broad where he remained for a number of years. When he retired, he just "shut-up-shop;" left it as it was, went to the western part of the state where he lived the rest of his life. Years later his store was just as he left it, name and business over the door. About 1920, a Richmond Newspaper carried an interesting story about an old building on Broad Street being remodeled which had once been a drug store and that bottles of drugs and other things pertaining to a drug store were found on the shelves, said to have been there for fifty fears or more. It is believed that it was none other than the drug store of William Penn Ladd. There is no record that he left any Children. Benjamin Franklin Ladd, was a member of the firm of Percell, Ladd & Co.; at one time the largest wholesale drug firms in the city and possibly in the state. He married Margaret Bigger. There were no children. From a News Item of May 1861 Defense of Richmond "Perhaps no citizen of Virginia has a more thorough practical acquaintance with the proper locations for a system of fortifications for Richmond, than that excellent surveyor and intelligent gentleman, Mr. MIFFLIN LADD, of Henrico. He knows every foot of ground around Richmond in all directions for twenty miles, and in the pursuit of his profession has traversed it all till the whole is as familiar to him as the streets of Richmond to the oldest inhabitant. Every avenue, from turnpike to a heep path; every water-course, pond and swamp, every forest, grove and bush, are as well known to him as the letters of the alphabet. Richmond, in Mr. LADD's opinion, has various means of natural defense, which by the aid of military art, can render it impregnable against any force by which it may be assailed. We advise the authorities to consult this gentleman, if they wish to be thoroughly posted up on the topography of this region." The following is from pages 30-37, The Ladd Family a Genealogy by Thomas Mifflin Ladd III (1964). Please note that this installment contains information on the lineage of Amos Terrill Ladd. This data is in dispute. Sam ---------------------------------------

The above descendants, the children of James Ladd, (8) and Isabella Densen, have spread over the entire nation and have become prominent business and professional men and women. James was the brother of Amos, (9) and had an extensive partnership in Charles City about the time of the Revolutionary War. The following is from "The Ladd Family" by Warren Ladd, of New Bedford, Connecticut. "He, James, was one of the F.F.V.'s. He owned a farm called Green Meadows, a store and the Edna Mills. He was considered rich at that time. He was a member of the Society of Friends and a Minister of that denomination. We read of him in the diary of Barnaby Nixon, published in 1814, as follows: In 1782, with James Ladd, as a companion, we visited various meetings of lower North Carolina. In 1789, we visited the meetings at Rich Square, and Jack Swamp. Towards the close of the diary he says: Cousin James Ladd, had been in a consumption, declining away for several months, and was desirous to see me. His son James Denson Ladd, came to me in the 8th month, 1806. After being with him several days, Joseph Ladd, (another son) took me home. James Ladd lived a little more than two weeks after I left him. A little before he died, he said: All men must come to this, and I shall make a good end, which will crown all men. "We make the following extract from the diary John Fothergill, a Minister of the Society of Friends in England, who visited this country: In 1721, the 23rd of the 6th month, we had a meeting at Widow Butler's house, to which came several soberly behaved people. We came back from thence to Robert Honicut's, and had a meeting near his house. The next day we crossed the James River to William Ladd's (6), where a small meeting is usually kept. The 27th we had a pretty large meeting at Carles, and lodged at Thomas Pleasant's, on the 28th with several friends, we rode up the woods to a place called Dover, (Dover Minds in Goochland Co. Va.) where a few friends live -- we lodged that night at one John Parsons, on the first, 7th month, we had a meeting at French settlement called Manikintown -- lodged with Daniel Groom; On the 2nd we went to the monthly meeting at Edward Mosby's -- lodged that night with John Johnson, at the Swamp. The 4th we went to Black Creek, lodged that night with Gerard Ellyson, and had another meeting; 5th had another meeting on the Pamunkey River; came back to Gerard Ellyson's, and had another meeting the 6th at Black Creek, 7th went to another meeting at William Ladd's again -- lodged at John Crew's and went again to a meeting at Carles -- lodged at J. Pleasants. "The above was to show where the Ladds, the Ellysons, the Crews, the Pleasants and Parsons who inter-married with the Ladds, lived that it may enable others to make a more perfect genealogical record of the Ladd family. He was treasurer of the Yearly Meeting in 1807." (323) James Denson Ladd, of Charles City, son of James Ladd, (8) married Jane Evans, she died September, 1814, he died January 14, 1814.

"Collier Minge, married Miss A. M. Ladd, moved to Mobile, Alabama. He was a merchant and collector of the port there at one time. Both died there and were buried at St. Michaels, near Funsdale, Alabama." (326) Benjamin Whitehead Ladd, son of James Ladd, (8) of Charles City, married Elizabeth, daughter of William and Mary (Smith) Wood, April 20, 1814. She died December 4, 1832. He married Hannah Wood, July 31, 1851. "He came to Smithfield, Ohio, from Virginia in 1814, and purchased from his father-in-law, the farm known as "Prospect Hill," adjoining Smithfield, on the west and erected on it in 1815, a brick dwelling which is still standing, (1880). In 1817, he built a building for the purpose and commenced to pack pork and cure bacon. "So far as is known this was the first enterprise of the kind west of the Allegeghany Mountains. The business proved successful and was extended from time to time until he had erected four houses on the farm and one at Martin's Ferry, Belmont Co. Ohio. He was not only remarkably enterprising but equally disposed to help others. He was the especial friend of the poor and down- trodden colored race, assisting many in their flight from slavery. He was a prominent member of the Orthodox Society of Friends, and faithfully served the Church as an elder and a clerk of the Ohio, Yearly Meeting and in various other capacities. Amid all his business calls he found time to attend to his duties as a citizen and a Christian benevolence and unbounded hospitality being marked traits in his character." Children: 332.

February 22, 1815, died in Mobile, Ala. 1897. In 1836 he left Charles City on horseback for Alabama, where he acquired large tracts of timber lands; was very prominent there and left a sizeable fortune -- and a large family. The Ladd family in Mobile today is quite prominent in the social life of Mobile, also in business and civic affairs. John Milton Ladd's last surviving daughter, Unity Virginia Ladd, died in 1954 at the age of 102 years. At her 100th Anniversary she was elaborately entertained where homage was paid by the leading citizens of Mobile, at which there was an attendance of about 500 throughout the day; she recognized and chatted with many of them. She corresponded with the Virginia Ladds until her last illness prevented her writing. Since her death, her niece, Aline Hollinger, has been keeping in touch with her Virginia kin.
