About James Bacon

  • Nathaniel Bacon (bap. 1620–1692)
  • Contributed by Peter V. Bergstrom and the Dictionary ofVirginia Biography
  • Nathaniel Bacon, a member of the governor's Council, was often referred to as Nathaniel Bacon (the elder) in order to distinguish him from his namesake cousin, known as Nathaniel Bacon (the rebel) (1647–1676). Little is known about his early life. By 1653 Bacon had moved to Virginia. He settled in Isle of Wight County before moving to York County. In March 1656 Bacon represented York County in the House of Burgesses, and by December of that year he had become a member of the governor's Council, where he served for three years. After another term as a burgess in 1659, he had once again been named to the Council by August 1660. As the senior member of the Council by January 1682, on three separate occasions in the 1680s and early in 1690 he served as president and acting governor of the colony. Bacon had no children, and when he died on March 16, 1692, his niece Abigail Smith Burwell inherited his vast estate.
  • Nathaniel Bacon was the only son of James Bacon and Martha Bacon. His father, who also had three daughters by this or another marriage, was rector of Burgate in the county of Suffolk, England. Bacon was born probably at his paternal grandfather's Suffolk seat, Friston Hall, and he was christened on August 29, 1620, in the Parish of Saint Mary's, Bury Saint Edmunds, Suffolk. He was distantly related to the philosopher Francis Bacon. .... etc.
