About Martha Bland (Daingerfield)

Martha Daingerfield was from the Northern Neck area of Virginia. There are several Daingerfield/Dangerfield families in that area. She married three times The first marriage was to Theodorick Bland, Jr., in 1763, a doctor and plantation owner in Prince George Co., Virginia. He left her a wealthy widow when he died in 1790. She was an independent woman, maintaining the Bland holdings by executing marriage contracts to control her own lands.

After the death of Theodorick Bland, the widow married Nathan Blodgett in 1792. After the death of Nathan Blodgett, she married Capt. Corran, a sea captain. She sailed to France with him and died there.
