Notes for D
David Darnall was born about 1680. He died in 1741. Ref: Darnall Genealogy from "Darnall, Spence, Steers, Spangler, Stuckey, Sill" Compiled by Erma D. Stuckey, LDS Library, Salt Lake City, Utah. David Darnall had 3 sons: Abraham (abt 1713-1802) married Elizabeth; Isaac Darnall (abt 1715) married 1735 Frances Frasher (Thrasher): Jacob Darnall (abt 1717).

Introduction by Dr. H.C. Smith in "Darnall, Darnell Family" record of when or where "Dr." David Darnall was born. ..."From the militant Protestentism of David Darnall and the frequency of the Christian names of Jeremiah and Adam among his descendants, the compiler is led to believe that David was descended from Sir Jeremiah Darnall, clerk to the Vicar of Dunton 8/5/1580, as shown in Volume 1, Section 1, p.1, and titled Contemporary Linconshire Darnalls.

David Darnall died about 1702 in Richmond County, Virginia. Migration: "Dr. David" Darnall. In St. Mary's County, Md. in 1686. In Virginia in 1689. "It being ordered that he and his pretended wife and children remove from the County". St Mary's County, Md. Apparently in conflict both with Church of England and Catholic regime of Maryland. Moved to Richmond Co.,Va. in 1691. Ref: "Darnall, Darnell Family", by Dr. H.C. Smith.
David Darnall was in St. Mary's Co. Maryland by 1686 and was in constant trouble with the Maryland authorities over religious issues, being described by some as a militant non-conformist. This issue seems to be about his wife being a Quaker and his defense of Quakers in the state of Maryland. This also involved Parson John Waugh, for whom David obviously named his youngest son. At the strong request of Maryland authorities, David moved to Stafford Co. Virginia in 1689 and then to Richmond Co. Virginia in 1691. His estate was inventoried on June 30, 1702.

Land: "Vol.16: Deed,"9/21/1693, David Darnell and Margaret(X) his wife, of St. Mary's Parish, Richmond Co., Va. to Hugh French for 7000 lb. tobo. 600 acres etc., adjnj land of ----, Mr. Sampson Darrell,--- land lying in Rappahannock and Stafford Cos."

Land: Ref: Richmond County Records, 1692-1704, p.251, P.92.Deed.-September 1693. David Darnal and Margarett, His wife, of St. Mary's Parish, Richmond County to Hugh French of said Parish and County for 7000 lb. tobo, 600 acres, adj. land of Mr. Wm. Thornton, Land of Coll, Wm. Fitzhugh, land of Mr. Sampson Darnall, land of Richmond Shipways and land of James Orchard, "being part of a patent for land lying in Rappahannock and Stafford Counties granted to Mr. Motts". Signed David Darnall, Marg'tt (X) Darnall. Wit: John Fosaker, John Carter, Mauser(X) Hubbert. Rec 10 Oct 1693.

"Darnall, Darnell Family" compiled by Dr. C.H. Smith. Per the Introduction, Margritt did not die in 1724, but she prepared a will that distributed her property to the children upon the intention of remarrying. Waugh Darnall in his will specifies for the maintanance of his "Father and Mother".(But David , his father had died.) Waugh in his will also states that if Thomas Stone should die" my children should be brought under the family of Bronaugh". That would be the family of their mother, Elizabeth Bronaugh Darnall. Could Thomas Stone have been Waugh Darnall's stepfather?

Earliest records found to date place them in St. Mary's County, MD.
in 1686; removing therefrom by official edit in that year. In Stafford County, VA. in 1689. he removed to Richmond County, VA. buying land there in 1691. Died there in 1702. "A just inventory and appraisement of Mr. David Darnell, his estate, June the 30th 1702." was presented to the Court in Richmond County, VA. Nothing has been found to substantiate the date of death attributed to Margritt. On 3rd day Febry. 1702, Margritt Darnall deeded land and personalty to eldest and personalty to the other children.
