Summary
  • The Dromgoole family papers fall into two major divisions. The first group, covering the period from 1770 to 1830, consists of correspondence, accounts, receipts, deeds, surveys and other records of Edward Dromgoole, Sr., and Edward Dromgoole, Jr. This material is of particular value for the study of the early history of the Methodist movement in America and the movement of settlers from Virginia to the western regions, especially Ohio
  • The second group consists largely of the papers of George Coke Dromgoole and covers the period 1830 through 1848. The material in this portion of the collection concerns Dromgoole's political affairs, ranging in scope from purely local maters to those of national significance.
  • Also included is a booklet prepared by Dromgoole Heath and Lou Allie Heath, "Canaan, Home of Edward Dromgoole, 1780-1835, Brunswick County, Virginia," 1972, 1 vol

Biographical or historical data
  • Edward Dromgoole, Sr. (1751-1835) came from Ireland to Maryland in 1770. He served in various parts of Virginia as a traveling minister. After his marriage to Rebecca Walton (1753-1826) he settled in Brunswick County, Virginia, in 1786, where he became a successful planter and merchant. He continued as an active local preacher on the Brunswick and later the Greensville circuits.
  • Dromgoole's children were Edward Dromgoole, Jr. (1788-1840), physician, planter, merchant, and Methodist minister of Brunswick County; Mary (d. 1835); Rebecca; Richard; and Thomas, who was also a Methodist minister. Another son, George Coke Dromgole (1797-1847), was a member of the Virginia House and Senate. He served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1835 through 1841, and from 1843 until his death.
  • Family mercantile operations appear to have been directed from a store at Canaan in Brunswick County, Virginia, with branch stores designated as Belfast, Oak Hill, Pleasant Grove, and Sligoe. These place names have not been definitely located on contemporary maps.
