Birth*25 February 1718Jonas Brigham was born on 25 February 1718 in Westborough, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England),3
Baptism1719 and was baptized in 1719 in Marlborough.2
(4th Son) Land Records14 November 1742Jonas would receive a gift of land from his father at a later date than when his father, on 14 November 1742, stating he was a yeoman of Marlborough, gave land to each of his younger children, excepting Jonas. His father also gave a gift of land on that same date to his grandson, John Brigham, son of Jonas's eldest brother John Brigham, who had received his gift of land earlier.1
(Son) Land Records27 May 1743Jonas's father gave Jonas one half of his homestead, including dwellings in Westborough on 27 May 1743.4,5
(Son) FireHis parent's house, with much of its contents, was burned during their old age and, after the fire, Jonas supplied them with much of their needs.6
(Executor) Will14 June 1748Jonas's father wrote his will on 14 June 1748 stating he was a yeoman of Westborough and naming Jonas his sole Executor. The will ratified deeds of farms and land which he had previously given to all of his surviving children, and bequeathed to Mary, his dearly beloved wife, the west lower room in his house, as much room in the west chamber and cellar as she might desire, and the use of all in-door movables which, after her death, those that were properly his, were to be equally divided among his children and his stepson Edward Newton. He clarified his meaning by stating that after the burning of their house their son Jonas had purchased for them many items needed for housekeeping, and after his mother's death, on the strength of his word, were to be first returned to him. Jonas had promised to provide for his mother during her lifetime, and his father's will bequeathed to Jonas, in addition to the portion of his farm his father had previously deeded to him and the items to be divided among all the children, a 14 acre town right, so called, originally belonging in Marlborough and being of the right of Benjamin Rice, a descendant of his 2nd great-grandfather Edmund Rice, from whom his grandfather Thomas Brigham had purchased a 24 acre town right in 1665 and that his father had likely inherited. Jonas was also bequeathed almost all of the cows and horses, tools and various other items needed to manage the house and farm, the remaining half of which, the will implied, would become his after his father's death.6,7

Name VariationShe was called Annie Britt.2,3
Marriage*28 March 1782She married Charles Houchens on 28 March 1782 in Goochland County, Virginia.3,1
(Daughter) Will3 September 1795Her father prepared his will dated 3 September 1795 in Albemarle County, Virginia, naming his wife, Ann Britt, his four sons, William Britt, John Britt, Obadiah Britt and Archelus Britt, and a deceased daughter, Elizabeth Bailey. His objective was to treat all of his children equally, and appears to have specifically named the five for reasons other than inheritance. His four other daughters were very possibly also living.

The land that he then lived on he loaned to his beloved wife Ann Britt, during her life, and after her decease directed it to be sold by his executors at proper credit, and the money arising therefrom to be equally divided among his children, and the children of his deceased daughter, Elizabeth Bailey, to have one child's part, and not go into the hands of their father, John Bailey. His will directed that all the rest of his estate, real and personal, be enjoyed by his wife at the discretion of his executors, and after her decease to be sold and divided among his children as above mentioned. He constituted and ordained his sons, William Britt, John Britt, Obadiah Britt and Archelus Britt, his son Obadiah's father-in-law, Micajah Wheeler and John Buster his executors.

The will was signed and sealed by Obadiah Britt in the presence of witnesses John Buster, Micajah Wheeler, Sr. and William Smith.4

Mother*Ann Thomson1,2 b. 1730, d. 1810
Birth*1770Archelus Britt was born about 1770 in Virginia.1
(Son) Will3 September 1795His father prepared his will dated 3 September 1795 in Albemarle County, Virginia, naming his wife, Ann Britt, his four sons, William Britt, John Britt, Obadiah Britt and Archelus Britt, and a deceased daughter, Elizabeth Bailey. His objective was to treat all of his children equally, and appears to have specifically named the five for reasons other than inheritance. His four other daughters were very possibly also living.

The land that he then lived on he loaned to his beloved wife Ann Britt, during her life, and after her decease directed it to be sold by his executors at proper credit, and the money arising therefrom to be equally divided among his children, and the children of his deceased daughter, Elizabeth Bailey, to have one child's part, and not go into the hands of their father, John Bailey. His will directed that all the rest of his estate, real and personal, be enjoyed by his wife at the discretion of his executors, and after her decease to be sold and divided among his children as above mentioned. He constituted and ordained his sons, William Britt, John Britt, Obadiah Britt and Archelus Britt, his son Obadiah's father-in-law, Micajah Wheeler and John Buster his executors.

The will was signed and sealed by Obadiah Britt in the presence of witnesses John Buster, Micajah Wheeler, Sr. and William Smith.1
Marriage*21 December 1797He married Elizabeth Britt, daughter of Obadiah Britt and Mary E. Smith, on 21 December 1797 in Albemarle County, Virginia. They were 1st cousins 1 time removed.3

He also named two neighbors with land adjacent to his, James H. Houchens, who was his grandnephew, and John Devasher. Signing as witnesses were John T. Rogers and Obadiah's brother, John W. Britt. Regarding his land, Obadiah made several mentions of a "creek", and we note that he was referring to Peter's Creek in Barren County, Kentucky.
