    Notes 

    • Wright-Briscoe: Although Dr. Briscoe's youngest son has been listed as "Samuel" in birth record and a few times in church notations, since the name of "Walter" has appeared more frequently, will hereafter refer to this colonial pioneer as Wr Briscoe. In 1755 a list of freeholders of the parish who voted on the matter of allowing communicates of the new church to draw lots for the pews shows the name of one Samuel Briscoe.
      He later moved to Virginia, perhaps about the same time his brothers Dr. John Briscoe, IV, George and Robert became some of the early settlers of the Valley of Berkley, afterwards Frederick County. It is in this area that "Piedmont" one of eiscoe family's estates, was established by Dr. John Briscoe, IV.
      Walter was born in Virginia in 1771, however his other son Stephen and his daughters, who are mentioned in his will, were evidently born in Nelson Co, Kentucky. The exact date that Walter and Elizabeth Briscoe emigrated to Kentucky is not ke only existing definite record is Walter Bricoe's will dated Apri 1 1783, June 28, 1785, Nelson Co, Kentucky, leaving his entire estate to his wife Eizabeth, his son Walter, and his son Stephen. If his sons should die, then instructions were left for their portions to pass to his daughters. His wife Elizabeth was appointed as his Executor; "in case she should die before she shall make a will, then I appoint Thomas Brown and Jacob Beeson as my executors."
      According to a CD, he died by drowning in the Salt River.
