About ANGELICA B. EPPES

Research update:

Henry Baker II and Llewellyn Eppes married two different women, both named Angelica.

The merge on this profile should be reversed:

  • Angelica Bray Baker will need to be merged into the family of James Bray II
  • The parents of Angelica ____ Eppes are still unknown.

The will of James Bray II (brother of Col. David Bray) names his daughter Angelica BAKER--see notes and source material on his profile.

As Angelica Bray was still married to Henry Baker as late as November 17, 1725, the date of her father's will, she cannot be the wife of Llewellyn Eppes.

Llewellyn Eppes and Angelica ____ married November 14, 1711 (source: diary of William Byrd II), and had several children born before 1725.

The parents of Angelica _____ Eppes are still unknown. It is likely she had some connection to the Bray family.

Some trees show her as a Temple, rather than a Bray:

More research is needed to prove the parents of Angelica Eppes.

From "The Baker Family as Remembered" written 4 Feb 1847 by Dr. Simmons Jones Baker:

 "But I must not forget my great grandfather, poor unhappy man. He married Angelica Bray who had large expectations as to property, she being the only child of her father. She bore to my great grandfather, one son Henry Baker, my grandfather.  Sometime after this event the fair Angelica eloped with the captain  of a Jamaica Merchant ship and is believed to have died in Kingston in extreme wretchedness. . . . the poor man, notwithstanding the waywardness of his first wife appears ever to have retained a most affectionate attachment for her. A plate, knife and fork were always placed at the table for her and no one permitted to occupy her chair, in token that he was ready to receive the repentant Angelica whenever she thought proper to return. . . .
