In August, 2008 I began my second Trowbridge project.  I am attempting to "flesh out" the Trowbridge information contained on my site.  It is my hope to include all information that I can find on the Trowbridge families who settled early in what is today West Virginia.  These are the descendants of Samuel Trowbridge and his wives Jane Ruble and Christiann Dumire.  Included are: the families of Rev. David and Mary A. (Grady) Trowbridge; Jesse and Sarah (Pugh) Trowbridge; Samuel Ruble and his wives Margaret Grady and Susan Sheets Trowbridge; Jonathan (John) and Kissiah (Moore) Trowbridge; Bethuel, Elizabeth, William and Joseph Trowbridge.  My goal is to include at least one generation of those who moved out of (West) Virginia and one generation of descendants of Trowbridge daughters in the above male lines.    If you feel you have something to contribute, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Descendants of Thomas Trowbridge

Eleven Generations From 1482 Until After 1900

The three generations immediately below is new information I obtained after generating my Trowbridge family tree below.  Much of the information on the American family are from THE TROWBRIDGE GENEALOGY genealogy compiled and published by Francis Bacon Trowbridge in 1908.  Mr. Trowbridge covered many branches of the family resulting in a book five or six inches thick.  For our web site I have only extracted our direct line.

Trowbridge, Francis Bacon, THE TROWBRIDGE GENEALOGY, (1908), pg. 39, "Thomas Trowbridge, the first of his family to come to America, was the son, as heretofore shown, of John Trowbridge, a wealthy merchant and prominent citizen of Taunton, Somersetshire. His father had long been identified with the woolen trade in Taunton, which was noted for its manufacture of that staple, and it was natural that the son when he grew up should turn his attention to some branch of that industry, and he is found in early manhood established in business as a mercer in the neighboring city of Exeter in Devonshire."
