The Mansfields of Early Virginia

This post is actually about more than just the common spelling “Mansfield.” It also includes the variations on the name of a German immigrant to Virginia. This post goes from 1734 to 1841.

Here are the spelling variations.

Mansfield / Manspiel / Manspoil / Mankspoile / Manksfield / Mansfile / etc.

Jacob Manspoil, 400 acs. NL in Spotsyl. Co. in Great Fork of Rappahannock River, Down Deep Run, adj. George Martin, Joseph Bloodworth, Edward Ballenger, 3 Oct. 1734, for Imp. of 8 pers.: Jacob Bryell, Rose Paulitz, Susanna Hance, Peter Hance, Margaret Hance, Jacob Manspoil, Catherine Hance, and Adam Hance

Transcription ends.

Note: Jacob Bryell is probably Broile or Broyle, since the -y- can substitute for -u- and the -eu- vowel combination (switched around here) in German is pronounced like -oi-. Thus: Bryell = Breulle = Broile. The Broile family figures prominently in family Manspoil’s records (see below)
