Haggard/Hoggard Families, by Clinton R. Haggard
1678 James Haggard, (identified in the book by David Dawson Haggard)
"The traditions of our fathers are that one James Haggard, born ca. 1678, Bradenham Hall, England,
son of a wealthy aristocratic Lord of England, was educated for the ministry.
He joined the English Army as a private against his father's wishes.
Lord Haggard felt that the family's social status would warrant a commission)
so Lord Haggard paid handsomly to have young James Haggard smuggled out of England
aboard a merchant vessel bound for Norfolk, VA. The unscruplous captain knowing
Lord Haggard would never admit to such a scheme threw young James Haggard in
with other indentured servants and sold a contract for his services to a wealthy planter,
thus collecting for James' passage twice. Young James Haggard landed in Norfolk, VA, ca. 1698 (prior to his 21st birthday).
The wealthy planter finding young James Haggard well educated put him to teaching school.
There was connected with this school a young woman whose charms so impressed him that they
eloped to North Carolina and were married since it was illegal for a bonded servant to marry in Virginia.
They had a large family including: Nathaniel, Edmund, Zechariah, and Gray or Granville.
NOTE: David Dawson Haggard was in contact with the English
author H. Rider Haggard,
who was in his prime about 1890, and was writing almost two books a year.
H. Rider Haggard had a style of collecting known facts and weaving a story around them so his
readers never knew fact from fiction. Bradenham Hall,
home of H. Rider Haggard, wasn't built until about 1725, over 50 years after young James Haggard was born,
and wasn't purchased by the Haggards until about 1850. As of 1993 there is no known connection between the English and American Haggards.
