(DeJBow.) The name of Sir Charles Wade Thornton frequently 
appears in The Gentleman's Magazine as a participant in corona- 
tions and royal funerals. 

73. John Tayloe* Thornton {Presley* Anthony, 3 Francis, 2 Wil- 
liam ') was born in Northumberland county on February 19, 1766. 
He was taken to England with his brothers, and received an ap- 
pointment to the English navy. Judge Lomax says, in the letter 
before quoted: "Tayloe was desperately wounded in one of the 
most desperate naval battles ever fought, between an English and 
a French frigate. In this engagement the action ceased by the 
mutual destruction of both ships, and all the men on both sides 
would have been lost but for the timely intervention of an ap- 
proaching English vessel, which rescued from drowning the sur- 
vivors, among whom was Midshipman J. T. Thornton. He re- 
turned to Virginia in 1783, and died about 1797, at 'Kennersly,' 
Northumberland county. He was, doubtless, the John Thornton 
who was member of the House of Delegates from Northumberland 
in 1784, 1785, and 1786. He married Susan Kenner."

A Member or tb;e Virginia Company. 
By Henby Stoddabd Ruggles 1 Esq., of Wakefield, Mass. 

Early in the sixteenth century Thomas and William Ruggle re- 
moved from Holton Holgate, in Lincolnshire, to Suffolk. Thomas 
settled in Sudbury, and his will is of date June 21, 1547. It is 
not known where William, the younger brother, took up his abode, 
as the old manuscript chart preserved in the English branch of the 
Ruggles family makes no mention of this, but gives the residence 
of his eldest son as Hartest, Suffolk. 

A Life of George Ruggle, by J. S. Hawkins, printed in London 
in 1787, contains the assertion that the family is a branch of the 
ancient Staffordshire line of Ruggeley, originally De Ruggele, and 
this finds confirmation in"the fact that both bore the same coat- 
armor: "Argent, a chevron between three roses, gules — Crest: A 
tower, or, inflamed proper and pierced with four arrows in saltire, 
points downward, argent." 

1 The only brother of Mr. Ruggles, the writer of this paper, was Francis 
Dunbar Ruggles, who was a member of the first company, Washington Artillery, 
New Orleans, C. S. A., and who was killed at Fredericksburg and buried in 
Hollywood, Richmond (in the old part of the cemetery, not the soldiers' addi- 
tion). Though George Ruggle was among the founders of Virginia, none of 
his name came to Virginia, till his descendant, Francis Dunbar Ruggles, 
marched to her defence in arms and shed his blood on her soil — a fact emi- 
nently and almost poetically suggestive of the early connection. — Editob.
