Hello Virginia, did you ever get this sorted out? I have seen a Thomas married to a Mary Chappell somewhere but don't know where. I am working on sorting out this family and find that in 1787 Surry Co tax list there are 3 Wren's. Thomas, who could not be Thomas Sr or Jr. Sr. died in1775 and Jr. was living in Sussex Co. So any idea who he is? Then there is a John, whom I presume is son of Thomas Sr. this John died in 1830, Surry Co. Then a Richard with a boy named John aged 16-22. Not Richard of Sussex/Southampton Counties who died in 1804, Southampton. So I figure this Thomas and Richard are probably related somehow.
I found 2 deeds of interest in Brunswick Co:
Brunswick Co Deed. Nathaniel Perry of Granville Co. to Richard Renn of Brandom Parish Prince George Co. 28 Jan 1761. 50 pounds VA $. 140 ac on the n side of Roanoke River, joining on a branch of Cattail Creek. Wit: John Vincent, John Tomlinson, William Renn. Proved 23 Feb 1761. BCDB Vol. 3/Bradley: 50.
Brunswick Deed. 29 Aug 1761. John Melton of Brunswick Co to Henry Bailey of same. 7pounds10 shill6p for 100 ac on the s side of the Nottoway River, joining Collier. wit. Thomas Harris, Thomas Renn, John Davis. Rec. 22 Feb 1762. Bradley.BCDB, Vol 3, 1755-1764:64. So both of these men came to Brunswick about the same time and both from PG co. Also a Thomas Wren married Mary Wall daughter of Aaron Wall. Any thoughts you would care to share on this dilemma?..................looking forward to be hearing from you..........dorothy
