Genforum: The earliest Bagby I have been able to identify was a John Bagby supposedly born in Scotland in 1570. His son, James Bagby, born circa 1595 emigrated to Jamestown, Virginia in 1634. He had a son Robert born in 1640 in Virginia. Robert had a son John, born in 1665 who married an unknown Welsh woman. They had a son born in King and Queen County, Virginia circa 1700. John had a son John "Colonel John" Bagby who was born in Hanover County, Virginia circa 1736. John married Theodosia Morris who was born and died in Louisa County, Virgina. John and Theodosia had 4 children, Richard, James, Mildred and William.
