About John Thomas Buford, Sr.

John and Judith settled in Broomfield Parrish, Culpepper County, Virginia, on a tract of land situated on the Rapidan and Beautiful Run River. They owned the first 2-story house in the area; folks came from far and wide to see it. The deed bears the date August 9, 1735. John became one of the largest landowners of the county. His homestead was acquired from William Phillips of Orange, St. Marks Parrish, on the 25th day of June 1739. John Beauford died in 1787 and his will does not mention his wife; it is presumed she preceeded him to the grave.

John Beauford's children all spell the name Buford. Cannot determine when the spelling was changed. (WFT Vol 11 Tree 3897)
