About Mary Trabue

Mary Wooldridge

  • Birth: Circa 1715 - Henrico County, VA
  • Death: Circa 1789 - Chesterfield County, VA
  • Husband: Jacob Trabue

About 1732 his daughter, Mary, married Jacob Trabue, another at least occasional blacksmith who became interested in coal, but one of the strange thinking and acting Huguenots. John Sr. objected, declaring to the couple that he would give them no help or inheritance.

John Sr. had finally become reconciled to his French Huguenot children-in-law and Mary's marriage. According to William Lacy, "About the year '46 John Wooldridger Sr. sent for me to write his will and told me then, when Jacob Trabue married his daughter, he was much dissatisfied with the match, and he then made a resolve never to make Jacob Trabue the better for anything he was worth, but after he found Trabue to be a good husband, he was sorry for his rash romise and had concluded to let his daughter have theuse of a Negro girl named Hannah and her increase during his daughter's life and after her death to her son Joseph Trabue. [He said] 'I will make my grandson equal to my other sons in everything exceptlandk' and so I wrote his will." The will is dated April 20, 1747, and was rewritten in 1757.
