Sarah Campbell ca 1743 - ?  her parents
& 1760 Richard Brownrigg 1735 - 1771
|  his parents
& David Meridith ? - 1791
|  his parents
of "Wingfield," Chowan Co NC


This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!! 


 "the site was settled. . . by Richard Brownrigg, a native of Ireland, who built there one of the few brick dwellings in the region and established on the shore the first fishery in the state. The Brownrigg home burned in 1772 and was replaced in 1790 by Richard's son Thomas who directed the construction of a beautiful home of wood and brick with a square center and long wings on either side. The white-columned portico fronted on the river above the high bluff which was terraced on four levels down to the water's edge. From the rear a road lined by a double-row of Lombardy poplars, shipped from Italy, extended for three quarters of a mile out to the county road." - Tom Parramore  in "Roanoke-Chowan Story"
     "Wingfield was the magnificent seat of the Brownwrigg family on the Chowan County side of the river.  At the
time of the Civil War it belonged to the wife of Dr.Richard Dillard.  . . Early in the war, they [the family] refugeed to Richmond.  The plantation was seized by the Buffaloes, a pack of Confederate deserters and renegades, led by one Jack Farless.  They fortified the property and allied themselves with the Union forces while terrorizing the neighborhood.  The Confederates eventually crushed this outpost destroying the house in the process.  Roy Johnson published an extensive article [by Tom Parramore] on the Buffaloes at Wingfield in "The Roanoke-Chowan Story" in the Sixties.  . . .  There is an article on one of the early Brownriggs in John W. Moore's series "Early Baptist Laymen of North Carolina". e-mail from James Moore

The next passages from "Cradle of the Colony: The History of Chowan County and Edenton, North Carolina"
by Thomas C. Parramore.  Published 1967.

"Richard Brownrigg came from County Wicklow, Ireland around 1755 and, after a brief residence at Halifax,
purchased a rich Chowan tract at the mouth of Indian Town creek.  In partnership with a brother in the West
Indies he turned Wingfield into a flourishing shipping-point.  By 1762 he had built a handsome brick
manor house there, set off by acres of shrubbery and catalpa trees and a terraced bluff overlooking the
Chowan river.

The Wingfield establishment also included a large wharf, storehouses, a sawmill, and the fabled water-mill, so much invested, at least to the imagination of the late Dr. Dillard, with mystery and romance.  Brownrigg opened there the first commercial fishery in the province, pioneering in what would one day be a major Albemarle industry.  His brother George anticipated an even greater industry when he found a way to extract oil from the peanut, an achievement hailed at the conclaves of the world's most illustrious scientific body, the English Royal
Society.  A French visitor to Wingfield in the spring of 1765 found the seinemen bringing in up to a hundred
barrels of shad and herring in an hour.  At Edenton, the same observer counted a dozen sea-going vessels
despite the fact that Petersburg and Charleston were attracting much of Albemarle potential business with
higher prices."   pp. 23-24

Richard Brownrigg (1735-1771) was born in Wicklow County, Ireland, and emigrated to America some time before 1760. He settled in Bertie County, N.C., and married Sarah Campbell, daughter of Captain John Campbell.

I rode down to the rear of the garden and took a long and wistful view of the most beautiful river I have ever seen; its glittering water look just as they did forty years ago. . .The waves beating their solemn cadence on the lonely shore and the sighing of the wind through the cedars made symphony with my troubled heart . . . I tried to conjure up the long ago, when gay and festive the merrie throng gathered on the lawn, or made the house echo with song and  dance and music's voluptious swell. . . . In spite of me I was depressed beyond measure, and there the scarred and ruined house stared me in the face like an ugly demon. I bade silent farewell to the place and rode away."

Rev. John Campbell 1770 - 1828his parents
& 1793 Celia Freeman ca 1777 - aft 1837
her parents
of Lazy Hill, Coleraine, NC
& Orange Co NC


This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!! 


Inherited Lazy Hill from his grandfather. "his father failed after a bad fishing season & buying too much fishing outfit & had to sell all land to pay his debts. He then moved up in Western part of NC where he owned a summer home - I think in Orange Co & died there. When father was a young boy he was sent to Chapel Hill to the University of North Carolina. But before he graduated --his father believed he had discovered a salt mine on his property & bought outfit to work mine, but it was a failure & he lost everything.

An epidemic of fever broke out all along the river settlements. Many of the people died, others discouraged, moved away or farther inland.
John Campbell moved to Halifax County near Weldon.

Celia Freeman ca 1777 and John Campbell son of James had:
1. William Kinchen Campbell 1795 -   moved to Indiana dsp
2. John Campbell III 15 Nov 1804 Orange Co NC - 23 Feb 1866 Weldon NC
            1850 - agent for RR
    married Halifax 28 Jun 1826 Emily M. Pope 4 Jan 1804 - bef 1851

    married Halifax 16 Jun 1851 Caroline Rebecca Gary 11 May 1828 -19 Feb 1866
3. Celia Ann Campbell
     married Samuel Sessions




John Campbell III 1804 - 1866  |  his parents
& 1826 Emily M Pope 1804 - ca 1838
 |  her parents
& 1851 Caroline Rebecca Gary 1828 - 1866
 |  her parents
of Weldon NC


This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!! 


John and his brother William inherited Lazy Hill. He was born at Lazy Hill. Attended Chapel Hill when very young.
   When he heard of his father's failure with the mine, he left College & went to Hillsboro, NC & apprenticed himself to a printer
  & then wrote his father what he had done. He served his time to the printed & went into business for himself. [his father must have died about this time].
   I never heard for father took over his debts & went into bankruptcy to give himself time to pay debts -- which he did in full. 
       He published a paper in Halifax, NC called Halifax Minerva. 
    Bro. Andrew's wife should have a large book of the papers. Bro Andrew or sister Emily had them bound. 
    I think -- not sure & I suppose while father was in Halifax he met & married his first wife Emily Pope.
    He had seven children by her, only three lived to be grown -- sisters Emily & Eva lived to be old -
      - before his first wife died he moved to Windsor NC & published a paper [never heard the name].
   While in Windsor, Col. Andrew Joyner, who was President of the Roanoke Navigation Co.
      which ran towe boats on the Canal from Weldon to Gaston then on River to Danville VA [
       I think this is correct any how the Canal part is for my boys can remember the canal with the towe path on both sides.]
     The Col. wrote father he had to go to New York for two weeks on business & wouldn't father come to Weldon
       & manage the  business while he was gone, which my father did & never left Weldon again to live
        for while he was there the Wilmington & Weldon Rail Road finished their tract to Weldon & father was made agent for the Road.
      The first Rail Road to ever enter Weldon. The Road is now called Atlantic Coast Line. 
       When the Raleigh & Gaston road [now Seaboard Air Line? was built to Weldon he was made agent for that too
        & When the Petersburg & Weldon [now part of Atlantic Coast Line] was built to Weldon he was made agent for that.
      He was agent for all three until business grew so heavy he helped find agents for R&G&P&W & stayed with the Wilmington & W -
       - until his death which was in 1865 & his name was honored among all Rail Road men  & all that knew him.
 He was a widower for 13 years when he married my mother who died one week before he did,

"As for who raised my grandfather when his parents died in 1866 (he was 7 years old), my Aunt Rebecca (Caroline Rebecca) told me
    that two of his older half sisters from his fatherís first marriage were spinsters who ran a school for girls in Weldon, and they raised him and educated him
     Ė and I presume the other siblings of the second marriage.  Martha and Mary were born in 1833 and 1835, respectively, so they would have been 33 and 31
          at the time of their fatherís death. " ~ e-mail from Carolyn Clark Campbell

        "Mary Elizabeth Fairweather told me that Aunt Lizzie's two spinster sisters who raised her had been roommates with Ann Ward at Chowan
              and the Campbell ladies and Miss Ann arranged the marriage with Uncle Phil." e-mail James Moore 
           1850 Census shows Emily and Evelina Cambell, and Ann J Ward and others listed in the household of SJ Wheeler in Murfreesboro. 
                    Emily and Evelina are also listed with their father John Campbell in Halifax Co. SMK
