The Medders Family tree

The Douberly-Dubberly Paper Trail in America 1696-1999, by Frank L. Perry, Jr., EdD. This book goes into detail not only regarding the Douberly family, but also some collateral lines of the Douberlys like Youmans, Dean, Stanfield, Strickland, Floyd, etc. as well as giving a history lesson of what was going on to bring the Douberly family to America

I descend from John "Boss" Lynn (1794-aft 1880), who was the son-in-law of John Dubberly, who appears in St. Peters Parish in the 1800 and 1810 censuses in Beaufort District, SC. In 1820, both John Lynn and John Dubberly appear in Tattnall Co, GA census as next door neighbors. A Joseph Linn (M26-45) appears as head of a family in the 1800 Beaufort District, SC census, page 094. Could this be a relative of my John Lynn? Let me hear from you if you have any info to share on the LYNN family of Beaufort Co, SC and Tattnall Co, GA. 1 April 2001


Ella S. Oct. 30, 1907 Feb. 14, 1997

Flornoy M. Dec. 25, 1904 Jan. 18, 1970
John Hussey (H6/1.1), son of Edward Hussey (H7/1.1) and Elizabeth Hussey, was born 1755-74 in South Carolina, according to Lina Clare Isanhour, a descendant and certified genealogist of Smyrna, Georgia.

He was married about 1798 probably in the area which later became Chester County, South Carolina to Barbara Sheffield (S6/1.2), daughter of Arthur Sheffield (S7/1.1) and Lucretia Hogan Sheffield (H7/1.10, according to Isanhour research. Barbara Sheffield (S6/1.2) was born in 1779 in South Carolina. It is reported that a sister of Barbara Sheffield (S6/1.2) was married second to a Hussey, thought to be a relative of John Hussey (H6/1.1). This couple remained in South Carolina.

From Frank Perry

found several Dubberlys living in Appling Co. and Wayne Co. GA.

Got to be related to Flornoy and Doris Dubberly.

Walter L. Dubberly, b. 1875

Herschel Alonzo Lonnie Dubberly, b. 1877.

Taft Addison Bud Dubberly, b. 1890.

Manning Mannie Bud Jasper Dubberly, b. 1859, Glennville, Tattnall Co., but moved to Appling Co. d/ 1933. Surrency.

Jesse Thomas Dubberly, b. 1892.

William Marvin Dubberly, b. 1895.

Theodore Theo Marshall Dubberly, b. 1807, Baxley, GA.

Jasper Eugene Dubberly, b. 1903.

Flavel Ansley Fogarty Foggie Dubberly, b. 1909.

Incidentally, we traced Dubberlys back to French Protestant Huguenots named DOublet.

They fled to Protestant England when persecuted by Roman Catholics in France.

James Duberly learned tailoring from father, George, and secured contract from Crown to make British uniforms in his textile mills.

He owned 5 mansions across England and made uniforms for Brits who fought American colonies in American Revolution.

We have a drawing documenting one of his mansions.

Capt. Henry Duberly, paymaster, British Army, sailed 1854 with wife Frances Locke on troop ship to war in Russian Crimea.

Frances sat on a horse on a hill with British Officers watching the Charge of the Light Brigade in the valley below.

We have a copy of her journal/book and photographs.

Lived there about 100 years, but some migrated to Talbot Co., MD and Accomack Co., VA before 1696 from English village Ross-On-Wye, Herefordshire.

located on Wye River bordering Wales. My wifes sister & her husband visited Ross in 2003. They found

Dubberleys listed in phone book.

We found the name spelled variously, DOublet, Duberly, Dubberly, Dubberley, Douberly, Douberley, and Doubrley.

There was no compulsory schooling so people spelled it the way it sounded to them. All are related!

I was really interested in reading this article about the Dubberleys.

I have been tracing my family name DUBBERLEY, they originated from DYMOCK & REDMARLEY Worcestershire/Gloustershire, then my great-grandfather moved to HANDSWORTH Birmingham where my Grandfather was born.
I wonder if there are any descendants of this part of the family still live in that area?

Albert Dubberley was born 1843 to Joseph & Ann (Pitt) Dubberley

Albert Dubberley married Eliza Lloyd in 1863, in the Parish of Kidderminster.
