About Ludwell Grymes

Ludwell GRYMES (named after his mother's maiden name) was born April 26, 1733, in Middlesex County, Virginia. He was christened on May 6, 1733, at Christ Church, in Middlesex, VA. He died before 1795. Ludwell was the youngest of 10 children (3 died young before he was born). Ludwell was the owner or co-owner of between 10 and 20 thousand acres in Virginia (Orange, Gloucester and Caroline Counties). The Orange County VA records of 1795 show an account of John D. Grymes (his son), who was the administrator of the estate of Ludwell Grymes (born 1733), in which he charges for expenses incurred by travelling to Williamsburg to attend suits in the high court of chancery, between Ludwell Grymes and Rev. Walker Maury, and by having the graves of his father and mother paled in (defining boundaries (like a fence or wall) or setting apart by a distinctive markers).
