Abstract:

Most of this collection of 645 items spanning the years 1770-1918, is correspondence among the Randolph, Tucker and Bryan family members from 1770-1850. John Randolph Sr., 1742-1775, the scion of a successful, but not notably elite Virginia family, married his second cousin, Frances Bland, sister of Theodorick Bland, in 1769. They had 3 children: Richard Randolph, d. 1796; Theodorick Randolph, and John Randolph, Jr., 1773-1833. Frances Bland Randolph married St. George Tucker, 1752-1827, a native of Bermuda who had emigrated to Virginia to pursue a career in law. Tucker and his wife inherited the Randolph estates and lived at Matoax. They had several children, among them Frances Tucker, b. 1779, Henry St. George Tucker, b. 1780, and Nathaniel Beverley Tucker, b. 1784. Frances Randolph died in 1788. Many of the letters were written by Theodorick Bland to John Randolph Sr. about business matters. John Randolph Jr., later known as John Randolph of Roanoke, and his stepfather, St. George Tucker, contributed highly to the letters collected. Correspondednce in this collection by St. George Tucker was addressed to Joseph Carrington Cabell, who in 1807, married Mary Poll Carter, daughter of Tucker's third wife. Cabell was a Virginia State senator and a planter. Tucker's letters to Cabell dealth with American relations with England during the administrations of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison; the Louisiana Purchase; proposed changes in the Virginia Constitution; reforms needed in Virginia; banks and the legislature's attitude towards banking; and how the 1812 War affected Virginia. Papers also include an extended, business oriented correspondence of Tucker with John Coalter; and letters from Elizabeth Tucker Coalter Bryan and Nathaniel Beverley Tucker.
