      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Peregrine Bland (c. 1596 – June 11, 1647[1]) was an early settler of the Virginia Colony and a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses.[2]

      Bland was born in England and entered Emmanuel College on February 26, 1613.[3][4][2] In about 1635 he was transported to Virginia. He was elected a Burgess to represent Charles River county for 1639 to 1640 term.[4][2]

      In the Spring of 1647 on June 10th, Bland along with Francis Yeardley, the son of the former governor of Virginia George Yeardley, Dr. Edward Hall and current burgess Richard Eyers spent the night at the widow Sarah Gookin's estate.[1] Francis Yeardley described the incident that took place the next morning at breakfast. He stated that they , "fedd hartily," and recorded that they, "healthfully and cheerfully," passed the morning. During the conversation Burgess Richard Eyers and Bland realized that they were related.[1] They drank alcoholic beverages freely and after breakfast Yeardley, Dr. Hall, Bland and Eyers decided to set out for Eyers' plantation by foot. Although Yeardley suggested to wait until the heat of the day had subsided Bland decided not to heed the warning and set briskly for the plantation.[1]

      Eyers quickly realized that he did not know how to get there and asked Edward Windham for directions. Windham led them as far as Little Creek. A bit beyond there they saw Bland sleeping in the shade of Mrs. Gookin's "barne fort." Bland asked Eyers to wait with him for he needed to rest and suggested that the others continue. Eyers joined Bland on the ground and both napped feet to feet. Only about a half hour later when Eyers awoke he found Bland dead having suffocated in his own vomit. Bland died as one of the participants of this incident said while, "purging at the mouth bloody froth."[1]

      The coroner's inquest was held the next day on June 12, 1647 in Lower Norfolk Co., Virginia. His death was attributed to natural causes.[5]

      Bland's will was proved on January 19, 1650.[2] He is known to have had one daughter Hope Bland who is said to have married a William Beaumont.[2]

      I have learned: Peregrine was born in mid/late 1590's. 26 February 1613/14 he was admitted to Emmanuel College which trained Anglican Ministers. 4 August 1642 granted 1000 acres on north side of Piankatank River, which would be the Middlesex County side of that river. 6 January 1638/39 Burgess. 20 July 1638 witness will in York County, again indicating he was Anglican Minister. 11 June 1647 died suddenly in Lynnhaven Parish while traveling.

      Hope appears to have been only living child at his death. If he had son or sons, eldest son would have inherited land grant. If had other daughters they would have shared equally with Hope. Figure she was born ca 1630, as she repatented the land grant in Jan 1650/51must have been when she became of legal age. Died Bef. 20 August 1687 The Beamont/Miller Deed indicates that Hope Bland had died by this time and she had devised the Bland Patent to her son William Beamont in her will. To my knowledge no will has been found for Hope Bland or Hope Beamont (or any variations of those two names). Perhaps Rowland Beamont, her husband had died and she had remarried prior to her death. William had also inherited, besides the 1000 acres from mother-- Hope, Sear's Patent and Beamont Affidavit, States William Beamont's father was Rowland "Beaumont", who was about 24 years of age when he gave his deposition in York County on 21 May 1660 and who also patented land in Warwick County in 1 663/4. William married Elizabeth Hughs Oct 1687 Christ Church Parish, Middlesex County, Virginia. Mary _?_ by 1695 when her name appears a dower relinquishing her rights in deeds, and maybe Sarah _?_ as his third wife as she was admins. of his will or she could have been his oldest living daughter and with no living sons. He died by Nov 1700, bond made for Sarah as administrator of his estate.

      I have seen nothing about any children except for Hope. She inherited his 1000 acres in Middlesex County, Virginia. I have been told that she must have been his only living child...as if there was a son he would have inherited it according to the law in that day and age the eldest son was the lawful heir. If there had been other daughters, all daughters would have shared equally. When she repatented the land the land grant states she was the legal heir to Peregrine Bland.

      Hope's father Peregrine Bland died 11 June 1647 at the Thorowgood house in Lynnhaven Parish. There was a question if he had been poisoned but ruled out at the time and since then present day doctors have said it sounded like he had hemoraged from the lung. He was on a trip headed to the Eastern Shore.
    • Peregrin Bland died 1650 from drowning. He entered Emmanuel College in England 1613/1614. There is more about him in the book "A Vision of Unity-The Bland Family in England and America" by Charles L. Bland.
