Subject* Joseph MARTIN Sr.

<84> Note* __ ___ ____ A letter written 1 June 1842 by William MARTIN, Dixon Springs, Smith Co., Tennessee to Lyman DRAPER said "...[he] was an Englishman, born and raised in the city of Bristol, named Joseph MARTIN, the youngest of three children (two sons & a dau.) of a wealthy merchant of that city, engaged in the American trade. William fitted off his said son Joseph when young as supercargo to Virginia, in order to prevent an undesirable English marriage, in a vessel called the `Brice'. Afterwards he named one of his sons Brice in memory of this ship; and the name has been prepetuated in the family from then until now, and it has spread considerably among our friends. He, my grandfather, was a perfect Englishman. Large and athletic, bold, daring, selfwilled, and supercilious, with the highest sense of honor. In Virginia he married Susannah CHILES, daughter of ____ CHILES, a respectable and wealthy farmer of that state. With this his father's English pride became so offended (as they the English, considered the Colonists as inferior degraded set) that he determined to disinherit him; which he finally did. My grandfather never returned to England, but settled in Albemarle Co., where he raised eleven children five sons and six daughters, all of unusually large stature..." "He lived to a good old age and died about 1760, leaving a pretty good estate. My grandmother was one of the best of woman kind her parents of English descent." "After the death of Joseph's father his brother and sister in England showe the quality of the stock by offering to divide the paternal estate with him. The distance separating them, however, and accidents of the sea, prevented his participation in the family fortune."
