  • Notes 
    • Daniel and Elizabeth lived in Halifax County, VA, and Wake County, NC. In the 1800 Census of Wake County, NC, on pages 722-723, it states that Daniel Bagwell, father of John Bagwell died in 1801.

      Burrell & Nancy were named as orphans of Daniel Bagwell in Estate papers dated 1818, wherein Burrell & Nancy were each left 100 acres of land in Wake Co., NC. No other children were mentioned in the 1818 court records. In 1802, however, when Daniel died, his older children were mentioned as well as Elizabeth. Elizabeth also was not mentioned, thus I assume she had passed on by that time.

      The papers read as follows:

      Early Bagwells came from England and Ireland. The name was probably originally Backwell and may have been the surname given to people who lived in ‘back of the well’ or at the ‘back well’. Another possible origin would be a combining of ‘Baega’ (meaning ‘Badger’) and ‘Welle’ (meaning ‘spring’ or ‘stream’). Since then, spellings have included variations of Bakewell, Bacwel, Begwell, Bagswell, Bagwsl and Bagwell.

      The first Bagwells in America were Thomas and Henry, residents of Jamestown, Virginia I 1608. The first Daniel of this genealogy was probably a descendant of one of these Bagwells.

      Daniel’s father may have been named John (it is now known to be Emanuel Bagwell). In 1787 a John Bagwell, Jr.(probably the son of John (Emanuel's son because of the birth date of John of 1728 and he would be 59 years old and surely, too old for fighting) proved in court that injuries to his back were caused by the spurs of James Lee during a fight in Spartenburg County, South Carolina. Since Daniel’s brother Littleton/Littlejohn was in Spartenburg at the time, it would be possible that John Jr. was also there and the he was Daniel’s and Littleton’s brother. Or perhaps John Jr. and Littlejohn were the same person.

      Littleton/Littlejohn appeared to have been the first to have moved westward. In 1834. the home of Littleton Bagwell was designated as a voting precinct in Fayette County, Alabama. His nephew Frederic Bagwell would eventually also move there.

      On June 21, 1757, the Daniel of this genealogy was in Brunswick County, Virginia, where ‘Danl Bagwell’ was


      ‘smmoned to the next court to make his excuse if any he has why he should not

      be deemed a soldier in the militia’


      By 1760, Daniel Bagwell had followed Indian trails and trading paths south from Virginia and could be found in Halifax County, North Carolina, where sons William, Frederick, John Daniel and Nathan were born. A lot of Irish, Scottish, Welsh and English settled in the foothills of the Carolinas in the mid-1700’s.

      According to Bagwell: The family History Book, during the American Revolution, William and Frederick fought for the United States, joining regiments in Bute and Wake Counties, North Carolina, respectively. After the war Daniel’s brother Richard and nephew Drury were acknowledged as having given supplies to the American side.

      John also served in the Revolutionary War, fighting with his brother William under General Ash in the Battle of Brier Creek. In September 1832, John filed a Revolutionary War application in which he swore he fought as a substitute, first for his father, then for Jesse Richards, then for Thomas Bunch and finally for Arthur Pope. Moreover, he reported that he was in the Battle of Stono and at Gate’s defeat at Camden.

      After the war, most of Daniel’s family moved to the Greenville and Spartenburg, South Carolina area. His son William arrived in the Pendleton District in 1816.

      Daniel’s son Frederick Bagwell had more wanderlust that his brothers. At the beginning of the American Revolution, he was in Wake County, North Carolina. At one point, he also may have lived in Johnston County, North Carolina. But in 1803, he was in Pendleton District, South Carolilna and, in 1820 in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

      In 1827, he drew land in the lottery but, for some reason, he did not collect it. Instead, he moved his family to Alabama, where, in 1834, he applied for his Revolutionary War pension and, in 1838, he lived in Fayetteville, Fayette County, Alabama. In 1840 he was receiving an annual pension of $50.00 at age eighty. After his 1851 death, his widow Mary continued to receive the $50.00 a year.

      In Pamela Bagwell’s history of the family, she lists Frederick (.c. 1759) and Mary (b. 1752) Bagwell as the parents of Frederick jr. (b. 1818) who follows in ‘Possibly Related Bagwell Family#1. That would have made Federick Jr’s parents 59 and 66 years old at his birth.

      Because of this dilemma, it’s improbable that Fredick and Mary were the parents of Frederick Jr. While Frederick Jr. may have been a descendant of Frederick, it is far more likely that here was another generation between them. Furthermore, the father may have been someone named Frederick.

      Frederick Bagwell died in Shelby County, Alabama on February 13, 1850.
