About Lieut. Andrew Andrew Francis Byrd, III

https://www.ourfamtree.org/descend.php/Abraham-Byrd-I/135760

After Andrew Bird [Byrd] and Magdalena Jones were first married, they lived in the predominantly Swedish community at Morlatten near Hopewell Village and present-day Birdsboro, PA. Andrew was a pioneer settler in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Jost Hite's patent dated October 21, 1731, gave Andrew Bird the right to settle near New Market, VA, in the Shenandoah Valley. It is probably that he moved to that place prior to the granting of the patent. This conclusion is based on the fact that Andrew was an appraiser of the estate of Swain Rambo , who died at Cacoosing before Nov. 7, 1730. Andrew and Magdalena eventually settled within a mile of Swain Rambo on Smith's Creek in what is now Rockingham County, Virginia. Andrew died in 1750 in the Shenandoah Valley. Andrew is called Lt. in some family references.

1744 - Lieut Andrew Bird was commissioned Captain, 28 February1744. Harrison relates the tradition that two Byrd brothers from the James River started on a trip north and in passing through the Shenandoah Valley decided to make their home there.

Note: Entries regarding the will of Andrew Bird, naming Magadalene Bird and son Andrew Bird as administrators, in Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia, extracted from the original court records of Augusta County, 1745-1800, by Lyman Chalkley, 1974, pages 19, 22, 435, 438 "THE BIRD--SAMUELS PAPERS:" ORIGINAL CENSUS AND MILITARY (1775) RECORDS OF OLD DUNMORE COUNTY, VIRGINIA.Revolutionary War Records -- Virginia, p.591 These documents were found by the undersigned in 1933 at "Birdwood," Woodstock, Va., when the home was broken up following the death of his parents, William Twyman Williams, Sr., and Sally Madison (Bird) Williams, among papers and letters of Mrs. Williams' father, Judge Mark Bird (1810-1883). They had belonged to Col. Abraham Bird (1731-1820), one of the Dunmore County Committee of Safety, by whom, on his removal to Kentucky in 1803, they had evidently been left with his son, Capt. George Bird (1763-1826), and so had come into the possession of Judge Mark Bird, the latter's son.The collection belongs to Bernard Samuels, M. D., New York City, a descendant of Mounce Bird, who was a soldier in Capt. Jacob Holeman's company (see roll), and a brother of Col. Abraham Bird. Dr.Samuels has given permission for the publication of these muster rolls and census lists, the originals of which, with the rest of the documents, he recently presented to the Virginia Historical Society under the name of "The Bird-Samuels Papers," as a memorial to his grandfather, Justice Green Berry Samuels, of the Supreme Court of Virginia, and Judge Mark Bird, who were partners in the practice of law. Andrew Bird is listed among the 1734 settlers of Shenandoah County, VA. From "A History of Shenandoah County Virginia" by John W. Wayland, Ph.D., p. 691: Bird Family. "Among the earliest settlers of this section was Andrew Byrd, who patented land on Smith's Creek, in present Rockingham County 1749, and died 1750. His wife's name was Magdalene and they had at least three children, Mounce Bird, Capt. Andrew Byrd Jr (d. 1799) and Col. Abraham Byrd or Bird." From the Powell Family web site: "After Andrew Bird and Magdalena Jones were first married, they lived in the predominantly Swedish community at Morlatten near Hopewell Village and present-day Birdsboro, PA. Andrew was a pioneer settler in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Jost Hite's patent dated October 21, 1731, gave Andrew Bird the right to settle near New Market, VA, in the Shenandoah Valley. It is probably that he moved to that place prior to the granting of the patent. This conclusion is based on the fact that Andrew was an appraiser of the estate of Swain Rambo I, who died at Cacoosing before Nov. 7, 1730. Andrew and Magdalena eventually settled within a mile of Swain Rambo II on Smith's Creek in what is now Rockingham County, Virginia, today. Andrew died in 1750 in the Shenandoah Valley. Andrew is called Lt. in some family references. 1728 - Andrew BIRD married, before 1728, to Magdalene JONES, daughter of Mounce and Ingeborg (YOCUM) JONES. Andrew and Magdalene (Jones) BIRD probably had children: John BIRD (ca.1729-1819), m.1767, Margaret Susanna WINTERODE; Andrew BYRD, Jr. (ca.1730-1799) m. Mary --?--; Rebecca BIRD, born 6 July 1732, bapt. 8 June 1737; Mounce BIRD (1735-1793) m. Clara RUDDEL; Abraham BIRD (ca.1737-1820), m.1757, Rachel ZEIGLER and removed to Fayette Co., Kentucky; and possibly others. 1737 - Andrew BIRD was in Augusta Co., Virginia as early as 1737. 1744 - Lieut Andrew BIRD was commissioned Captain, 28 February 1744. Harrison relates the tradition that two BYRD brothers from the James River started on a trip north and in passing through the Shenandoah Valley decided to make their home there. Orange Court Order Book, 1743-46, p.269; J. Houston Harrison, SETTLERS BY THE LONG GREY TRAIL (1935), p.144. 1746 - Lieut. Andrew BIRD (or BYRD) and Thomas MOORE, were in the region between John HARRISON Sr. and the Fairfax line, in 1746. In fact their lands were about midway of this region---or some three or four miles north of the "Big Spring." Here were also located Valentine SEVIER and Daniel DAVISON. J. Houston Harrison, SETTLERS BY THE LONG GREY TRAIL (1935), p.143-144. 1749 - In 1749, Andrew BYRD patented land on Smith's Creek, in the portion of Shenandoah Co., VA that now is in Rockingham Co., VA.

Life Sketch

From FindAGrave #98776303: Andrew Bird was born ca 1700 to Andrew Bird, Jr. and Marie Brokaw Bird, probably at Newtown (formerly Mespat/Maspeth, now Elmhurst) on Long Island. The family moved about 1704 to join family already settled in the Raritan Valley on the Raritan and Millstone Rivers in Somerset Co., NJ. Andrew, as a young man, moved to Amity township (now Berks Co., PA), where he married ca 1724, Magdalene, daughter of Mounce and Ingaborg Jones, who were among the first settlers of the "Swedes Tract," Philadelphia (now Berks) County, PA.

Pendleton, Philip E., Oley Valley Heritage: The Colonial Years 1700-1775, Birdsboro, PA: Pennsylvania German Society & Oley Valley Heritage Assoc., 1994, p.176, Dallas Public Library. Known heads of households and single freemen residing in the Oley Valley 1701-1741"...William Bird 1728 Amity, Robeson....Andrew Bord (Burd, Bird) 1727 Robeson, Burgund Bord (Burd, Bird) 1735 Exeter...Marcus Huling (Hulings, Hulin) 1716 Amity...Mounce Jones (Magnus Jonasson) 1704 Amity, John Jones (Jonasson) 1709 Amity,...Andrew Robeson 1714 Exeter, Israel Robeson 1718 Robeson, Jonathan Robeson 1725 Exeter...Thomas Rutter 1715 Douglass...Jonas Yocom (Yocum, Yokom, Jochim) 1714 Douglass...

Note: Y-DNA testing indicates the strong genetic relationship of multiple male descendants of Andrew Bird and Burgoon/Burgund Bird, but William Bird was related only through his marriage to the daughter of Marcus Huling (a granddaughter of Mounce and Ingaborg Jones).

Andrew Bird and his wife Magdalene and their young children moved to Opequon Creek, Old Frederick Co., VA, ca 1732 with the Jost Hite settlers.

Eisenberg, William Edward, This Heritage: The Story of Lutheran Beginnings in the Lower Shenandoah Valley, and of Grace Church, Winchester, 1954, Dallas Public Library. 5 June 1737 at Shenandoah, baptised Rebecca, daughter of Andrew Bird, born 6 July 1732. Evidences" James Gill & Sarah Moor [Moore]... On 8 Jun 1737, Andrew Bird "Testes" for baptism of Jacob, son of Rilie Moor, born Dec 1734.

  • Note: This baptismal record appears to be evidence that Rebecca was born after her parents moved to the Shenandoah Valley. Her older siblings were probably baptised in Pennsylvania, though such records have not been found. Andrew and Magdalene would likely have had their daughter baptized before taking her to live in an area where clergymen were available only on infrequent visits. It would appear that the family arrived in the Shenandoah Valley circa 1731-32.
