Elias Sprigg Elizabeth Sprigg Eleanor Sprigg Mary Sprigg Martha Sprigg Ann Sprigg

The Nuthall home, The Manor of Cornwaley's Cross (now known as Cross Manor) is on the National Register of Historic Places in St. Mary's County, MD.

Written by Sarah Joyce Gibbs Johnson.

Eleanor is believed to have been the eldest child of John and Elizabeth, born circa 1646 in Northampton County. She wed before her father died in 1667/68, Thomas Sprigg Sr. as his second wife at age 20 or 21 and she died circa 1699 in Prince George’s County, Maryland aged 53. Eleanor had joined her husband in the extension of a deed in 1696 but did not sign a deed dated 1700/01. Thomas had [at least] two boys and two girls by his first wife. Thomas was aged 38 when he wed Eleanor he having been born in 1630. She may have been living in Maryland from the time her father purchased Cross Manor even though her father did not claim land rights for her until 1670. At any rate her husband Thomas Sprigg had also lived in Northampton County with his first wife Katherine before marrying Eleanor and moving to Maryland. Thomas and Eleanor’s domicile in Prince George’s County was named “Northampton”. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~codd/nuthall9.14.pdf
