.We are researching the genealogy of Sir Thomas John Watson, who was known as an Admiral in the English Navy. He came to Jamestown, VA in 1730 from the Isle of Wales, Scotland. He was searching for his brother who was also an officer in the English Navy. He married the Widow of the House of Hanover in Hanover County, VA, Euphemia Townsend. Their children consisted of Thomas Chiripton Watson, John Abishua Watson, William Bearskin Watson, Grissel Watson, Ceziah Watson, and Arphilida Watson. They bought a large piece of land in Pittsylvania County, VA and developed a tobacco plantation. A grandson, John Saul Watson who married Lucy Smith in 1800, moved to Putnam county, TN. His son, Thomas Townsend Watson married Sabra Jane Bennett in 1834. He was a Capt. in the Civil War. His son Benjamin Franklin Watson married Ardelia Miller and moved to Leonard, TX.
