John Dugger is probably a son of Daniel Dugger and Mary Scarborough. There is no solid proof that he is their son, but they seem the only choice.

John Dugger was born ca 1721 or before, probably in Surry Co, VA (birth date based on his first public record in 1742 assuming he was at least 21 then). His first appearance was as a Witness to a deed in Brunswick Co, VA in 1742. He received a Patent for 337 acres in Brunswick Co, VA in 1748 on the north side of Great Creek up Gravelly Run. I believe this is in the vicinity of Lawrenceville, VA. John Dugger Sr received a 400 acre patent in 1749 on Rocky Run (same area as before). After that he was listed on some record (Court and Deeds mostly) nearly every year until his death in 1803.

John Dugger married Priscilla Bennett before ca 1740, she was a daughter of James Bennett. James named her in his Will dated 1752. John Dugger was a Witness.

On 5 Apr 1748 John Dugger received a 337 acre land patent in Brunswick on the North side of Great Creek up Gravely Run, adjoining Captain John Brown and Abraham Brown. (Virginia Land Patents Book 26 page 329).

On 2 May 1748 John Dugger, John Embry and Lewis Lanier witnessed a deed between Thomas Parrot (of Henrico Co, VA) and John Merritt (of Prince George Co, VA) for land in Brunswick on south side of Waqua Creek. (Brunswick Co, VA Deed Book 3 page 453).

On 25 Jul 1749 John Dugger received a 400 acre land patent in Brunswick on both sides of Rocky Run, adjoining Tatums Road. (Virginia Land Patents Book 27 page 232)

On 5 Sep 1749 John Dugger was mentioned as an adjoining land owner in a land patent to Edward Winfield on Avents Creek (it actually said adjoining John Brown, Cole and Dugger). (Virginia Land Patents 28 page 678)

On 15 Dec 1749 John Dugger was named again as an adjoining land owner in a land Patent, this one to James Bass for land on Avents Creek. Others adjoining were Winfield, Cole, Hix and Peterson. (Virginia Land Patents 27 page 506)

On 18 May 1751, John Dugger (and James Scott and Robert Campbell) witnessed a deed between John Rae and Jesse Tatum. (Brunswick Co, VA Deed Book 5 page 124)

In September 1751, in Brunswick Co, VA Court, John Dugger was mentioned (can't find reference as to what for). (Brunswick Co, VA Order Book 4 page 85)

On 21 Jan 1752 John Dugger (and James Stewart and The. Burk) witnessed a deed between Thomas Allstine (of Surry Co, VA) and Benjamin Harrison. (Brunswick Co, VA Deed Book 5 page 216)

Also in January 1756 court, John Dugger obtained an attachment against the estate of Benjamin Dugger (his brother) who had absconded. Apparently Benjamin left the county owing money to John Dugger. It seems unlikely that it was the 20 shillings for the 100 acres sold to him in 1755, but it could have been. There was no record of Benjamin selling that land, so apparently when he absconded, it came into John's hands again per this attachment. (Brunswick Co, VA Order Book 5 page 524)

In February 1765, in Brunswick Court James Dugger and John Dugger Sr proved a deed from Proctor to Fort, in open court. I don't have the reference for that deed. Interestingly, this is the first record I've found referring to John Dugger as "Sr". This means that by this time, his son John Dugger had turned 21 and they now needed a way to distinguish themselves from one another in the public records. (Brunswick Co, VA Order Book 9 page 8).

In April 1765 in Brunswick Court, Charles --- (last name illegible) sued John Dugger. I have no details. (Brunswick Co, VA Order Book 9 page 38).

Witnesses were John Dugger (Sr?), Howell Dugger, Alexander Dugger, and Daniel Dugger (all sons of John Sr, except Alexander, who was probably a nephew). The fact that neither John, the grantee, nor John the witness, were designated "Jr" or "Sr" makes it hard to determine who was who. This deed may be for John Jr, with John Sr as a witness. The associated court record seems to show John Sr as one of the witnesses (Brunswick Co, VA Deed Book 13 page 189).

In May 1778, in Brunswick Court, John Dugger and John Dugger Jr (his son) were securities for someone (name not listed, or illegible). (Brunswick Co, VA Order Book 13 page 206).

On 12 Sep 1778 John Dugger Sr was paid by the Parish for maintaining Henry King, son of Amy King. (Bath Parish Register of Dinwiddie and St Andrew's Parish Vestry Book of Brunswick" by William Lindsay Hopkins, 1989)

In May 1787, in Brunswick Court, "John Dugger" and John Dugger, Surry were called for jury duty. I'm not sure if John was Sr or Jr, as it wasn't listed. (Brunswick Co, VA Order Book 14 page 513).

In September 1787, in Brunswick Co, VA, John Dugger made a petition to have his several adjoining land tracts resurveyed in one inclusive survey (in other words, make it all one piece of land, legally).

(deed dated 12 Nov 1793 above). He also sold 400 acres in 1793, but that doesn't show up here, and didn't seem to show up on the tax entries before either.

On 29 Jun 1794 John Dugger Sr sold 179 acres to Sampson Dugger, (whom I believe was a grandson). The land was on a line between said Sampson Dugger and Sterling Dugger, deceased (a nephew) and John Dugger Jr (his son). Witnesses were John Dugger Jr, Edwin Fort and James Dugger (his grandson).

A deed dated 29 Jun 1794 shows John selling 179 acres to Sampson Dugger, but that leaves 21 acres, presumably sold to James Dugger, but I found no deed for that.

He was shown with 75 acres (same as in 1796) but with 200 acres added, being from James Dugger, deceased (his son), and another 125 acres that was formerly omitted. There was no deed showing the land going from James to his father John, so I suspect that John only had this land as administrator of James' estate, so he didn't actually own it, but was responsible for it. The additional 125 acres came from somewhere, but I don't know where yet. A careful analysis of all of John Sr's deeds should be able to account for all of his land purchases and sales.

On 11 Feb 1797 John Dugger Sr sold 150 acres to Wright Griffin of Southampton Co, VA. The land was on both sides of Gravelly Run, adjoining Sampson Dugger. Witnesses were Thomas Drake, John Dugger Jr (his son), and Howell Dugger (his son). For some reason, this land transaction does not show up in his tax entries for 1797 or 1798. (Brunswick Co, VA Deed Book 17 page 164)

The above Will proves that John Dugger Sr died sometime around December 1803 in Brunswick Co, VA. Since his wife Priscilla was not named in the Will, we can assume she had died prior to then.

John did not appear on the 1803 (or 1804, etc) Personal Property tax lists. However, he was listed on several Real Property Tax lists well after his death. This was due to his Real Property (land) being still in his name until final division of his estate.

John Dugger Sr was listed on the 1803 Real Property Tax list in Saint Andrews Parish, Brunswick Co, VA. He was listed with 75 acres (as before), and 100 acres (as before) and with 31 acres (as before).

In May 1810, in Brunswick Court, Philip Pryor, administrator of Henry Dugger, deceased (John's brother) sued Daniel Dugger, executor of John Dugger Sr, deceased. However, since Daniel was also dead by then, the case fell to James Dugger, "administrator de bonis non" for John Dugger Sr. This suggests that the estate was still being settled nearly 10 years after John's death. (Brunswick Co, VA Order Book 23 page 404).

John Dugger Sr was listed on the 1811 Real Property Tax list in Saint Andrews Parish, Brunswick Co, VA. He was listed with 75 acres (as before), and 100 acres (as before) and with 31 acres (as before).

The 1811 tax record was the last one found for John Dugger Sr, so presumably his real property was distributed to his heirs about that time.
