    • MARGARET PEGGY2 Lawrence (THOMAS1) was born 1709 in Wem, Shropshire County, England, and died Bef 1739 in Old Rappahannock (now Richmond) County , Virginia Notes Margaret "Peggy" Lawrence , presumed fourth child of Thomas and Mary Peploe Lawrence (d.1729). Margaret was christened on 10 April 1709 at the nearby Battlefield Parish Church. As a young woman, about 19-20 years old, she was banished from Wem, in the County of Shropshire, England, because she left the Church of England for the Puritan Faith. Margaret was residing in London, Middlesex County, England, when she was indicted on a felony charge of thievery on 9 July 1729. She was tried and convicted in the Hall of Justice of "Old Bailey," located in the suburbs of London, on 25 February 1730. For her sentence, she was given "his Majesty's royal mercy on condition of transportation to some parts of America for a spare of fourteen years." Her Transportation Bond was issued on 9 March 1730. Margaret became one of 106 prisoners whom Jonathan Forward contracted to transport aboard the "Patapscoe Merchant", Darby Lux, Commander, from the Newgate Prison, City of London, County of Middlesex, England to Maryland on 17 March 1730. Tobias Phillips, a second-generation tobacco planter from Old Rappahannock (now Richmond) County, VA, learned of the ship arriving in Baltimore, Maryland, and traveled 100 miles to meet Capt. Darby Lux and inspect the 94 surviving prisoners. Tobias purchased Margaret's Bond which entitled him to fourteen years of service, and brought her back to his tobacco plantation in Virginia While at the tobacco plantation, Margaret bore Tobias two illigitimate sons; John Lawrence , born about 1731, and Thomas Lawrence , born about 1733. Lift on the plantation was hard on Margaret, as she did not live out her entire Bond of fourteen years, and she died before 1739. This is in evidence as she was not mentioned in Tobias Phillip's will dated on 10 September 1739. Children of Margaret Lawrence are: i. JOHN3 Lawrence , born Abt 1731, Old Rappahannock (now Richmond) County , Virginia2.ii. THOMAS Lawrence , born Abt 1733, Old Rappahannock (now Richmond) County , VA; d. Abt 1797, Wilkes County , North Carolina
