At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861, the importance of Tredegar Iron Works was one of the most compelling reasons for making Richmond the Capital of the Confederacy. From this arsenal came the 723 tons of armor plating that covered the CSS Virginia &emdash; the world's first ironclad used in war &emdash; and much of the Rebels' heavy ordnance machinery. In 1862, Jefferson Davis was inaugurated as President of the Confederacy. One month later Davis placed Richmond under martial law. The Seven Days Battle followed in June. Three years later, on Evacuation Sunday (1865), large parts of Richmond were destroyed in a fire set by retreating Confederate soldiers. Over the next two weeks, President Lincoln visited Richmond and Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House. Five days later, President Lincoln was shot. In 1870, Virginia was readmitted to the Union and Federal troops were removed from Richmond. The year 1870 was coined the Year of Disasters . The worst flood in 100 years collapsed the third floor of the Virginia Capitol. Robert E. Lee's death compounded grief, followed by the Spotswood Hotel fire.Over the next decade, Richmond High School, the city's first, opened (1873); cigarette manufacturing was introduced (1874); the last federal troops withdrew from the South and Reconstruction ended (1877). Concerned with the plight of so many "invalid and infirm" former comrades, a group of Confederate veterans had met in Richmond on 18 April 1883 to form a benevolent society to minister to the disabled and indigent veterans. The organization opened its home, the Robert E. Lee Camp Soldiers Home for Confederate Veterans, on 1 January 1885 at a site in western Richmond. The home remained open until the last resident died in 1941. Location: Record Group 52, Library of Virginia

Peter Wallace Sr (b 1680) Highlands?


The Wallace Family in Scotland:

The Immigrants (early 1700's):

William WALLACE & Hannah WOODS

Peter WALLACE (born in Scotland) & Elizabeth WOODS

Micheal WOODS & Margaret CAMPBELL (born in Scotland)

The Wallace Family...

All we know of the Wallace family in Scotland is that Peter's father, Sir William Wallace (~1659), was from a respected Highlands family, and he maried Elizabeth Bruce. I can't find trace Sir William and Elizabeth any further back, but as John Woods also married a Bruce (Isabella, see below), it seems likely that Elizabeth Bruce was from the same bunch of Bruces. We don't even know exactly where in the Highlands Sir William was from, and there were several different bunches of Wallaces in Scotland at that time. I think Sir William was probably from the Wallaces of Craigie.

The Campbell Family...

There are three main groups of Campbells in Scotland--the Campbells of Argyll, the Campbells of Breadalbane, and the Campbells of Cawdor. Our Campbells through Margaret are marriages of the Argyll and Cawdor clans. Margaret Campbell's parents were Sir James Campbell (~1650) and Susan Campbell "of Argyll" (i.e. from Argyllshire, Scotland). For many generations the Earl of Argyll was from this Campbell family, who were pretty ruthless in politics and dominated the Argyll region for centuries.

Sir James was the son of Sir Duncan Campbell (~1638) of Argyll and Lady Henrietta Lindsay, daughter of Alexander Lindsay, the 1st Earl of Balcarres. The initials of Sir Duncan and Lady Henrietta are supposedly still on the gates to Carnasserie Castle, near the village of Kilmartin in Argyll. The castle itself, which had passed to the Campbell Family in 1572, was blown up during the "Argyll's rising" in 1685. Susan was the daughter of Alexander Campbell (~1642) of Cawdor, Stirling. Cawdor Castle is still considered a Campbell seat. Duncan was himself the son of Sir Archibald Campbell & Margaret Campbell. This was yet another marriage of unrelated Campbells--Margaret was the daughter of daughter of Sir Colin Campbell and his wife Elizabeth Brodie, while Archibald descended from Sir Dugald Campbell.

The Bruce Family...

As I mentioned, the Woods family was decidely English until John Woods (born 1628 in Yorkshire, England) married Isabella Bruce of Newtown, Stirling. Isabella is our connection with all those Scottish kings. Isabella was the daughter of Patrick Bruce (~1595) & Janet Jackson. On the maternal side of Isabella's family were the Jacksons and Johnstons. Isabella's grandfather was John Jackson (~1580) of Edinburgh, and her great-grandfather was another John Jackson (~1555), also from Edinburgh. Her maternal grandmother, Rachel Johnston, was the daughter of Joseph Johnston (~1570) and the granddaughter of Archibald Johnston (~1545). Archibald is as far back as we get with the Johnstons; his wife (Isabella's great-great-grandmother)was Rachel Arnot, daughter of Sir John Arnot.

On the paternal side, Isabella's father was from Stirling; Patrick lived in Newtown, Stirling and his ancestors were "the Bruces of Airth, Stirling". These Bruces were a well-respected old family and had married with a bunch of other respected old families--including the Flemings, among others. Isabella's great-grandfather Alexander Bruce (~1530) married Janet Livingston. Janet was the daughter of Alexander Livingston (~1500) & Anne Douglas of Callendar, Stirling. Isabella's great-great grandfather Robert Bruce (~1505), who married Janet Forrester, is as far back as we trace the direct Bruce lineage.

The Fleming Family...

William Bruce (~1565), Isabella's grandfather, married Jane Fleming, daughter of John, the 4th Earl of Fleming (1537). Earl John was born in Biggar, Lanarkshire. His wife was Elizabeth Ross of Halkshead, Lanarkshire. Elizabeth was the descendant of Lord Ninian Ross. Earl John Flemings's father was, predictably, the 3rd Earl of Fleming, Malcolm (1494). Malcolm was born in Cumbernauld, Biggar, Lanarkshire and married Janet Stewart, the illegitimate daughter of King James IV of Scotland (1473). King James IV had a bunch of illegitimate children before he died in the disasterous battle of Flodden Field (1513). After Earl Malcolm died, the illegitimately royal Janet hooked up with quite legitimately royal King Henry II of France and died there with him. This family line goes back and back and hooks up with the all the famous Scottish families: the Drummonds, the Randolphs, the Livingstones, the Douglas Family of Dalkeith, the Stewarts, the Keiths, the Mures, the Dunbars, the Murrays, etc, etc....it also includes King James I, who ruled 1406-1437, King Robert III, who ruled 1390-1406 (who changed his name from John Stewart, Earl of Carrick, to King Robert to avoid associations with the earlier hated King John), King Robert II, who ruled 1371-1390, Robert "the Competitor" de BRUS (who freed Scotland by winning the decisive Battle of Bannockburn and ultimately confirming Scottish independence in the Treaty of Northampton), King William I "The Lion King" (ruled 1165-1214); King David I "The Saint", King Malcolm II (ruled 1005-1034), the first to reign over an extent of land roughly corresponding to modern Scotland; King Ethelred "The Unready", King Kenneth II (ruled 971-995), King Edgar "The Peaceable King", King Malcolm I (ruled 943-954), King Edmund I "The Magnificent", King Edward I "The Elder", King Donald II (ruled 889-900), King Constantine I (ruled 862-877), King Alfred "The Great", King Kenneth MacAlpin I (843-859), who was the first king of the united Scots of Dalriada and the Picts.

"Tthe accepted progenitor(founder) of Clan Wallace was Richard Wallace (Ricard Wallensis), who witnessed a charter at Paisley Abbey in 1163. A decade later Richard received feudal lands from Walter FitzAlan, later the High Steward of Scotland, himself the progenitor of the Stewart Dynasty. In the decades that followed, the Wallaces became part of an emerging Scottish gentry, acquiring lands at Riccarton, Craigie, Cairnhill, Cessnock, Kelly and Elderslie. This last, Elderslie, was the birthplace of Richard's great-great-grandson, Sir William Wallace, the Guardian. The charismatic Wallace and his band harried the occupation armies of England's Edward I in the early 1290's, and by 1296 had evoked such national spirit that Scotland's disparate ethnic groups united and rose up in opposition to the occupation. Requiring the support of the nobility, he allied himself to Sir Andrew Murray, and the two became the de facto rulers of Scotland, routing the English at Stirling Bridge in 1297. Murray died that autumn, after which many nobles refused to support Wallace, contributing to the Scottish rout at Falkirk in 1298. Even after resigning as Guardian, he waged a guerrilla war against the English oppression. Betrayed by a Scot, he was captured by English soldiers, transported to London, wrongly convicted of treason, and summarily executed."

"Clan Wallace has its traditional home in south-west Scotland, largely in Ayrshire and ranging north and west into Renfrewshire and Lanarkshire. Richard Wallace's first grants near Ayr centered around Riccarton (Richard's Town). Cadet branches emerged as the family's estates increased. Today, the castles and manor houses are in ruins, and its considerable holdings and estates have long since passed from family hands. At the end of the 18th century the chiefly line passed from the Wallaces of Craigie to the Wallaces of Cairnhill. In 1888 Captain Hugh Robert Wallace of Busbie and Clancaird established himself as Chief of the Clan and Name, and the chiefly line has remained in that family since."

Wallaces of Craigie: " The Wallaces of Craigie, Ayrshire, are descended from Adam Walace of Riccarton, the uncle of the great patriot. They obtained the estate by marriage to the heiress of Sir John Lindsay of Craigie, and in 1669 Hugh Wallace of Craigie was created a Baronet of Nova Scotia. Sir Hugh married Esther Kerr, daughter of the Laird of Little Dean but sadly their only son was brain damaged. On Sir Hugh's death, his grand-nephew, the grandson of his brother, the Rev. William Wallace of Falford, became the second Baronet. He was a distinguished lawyer who rose to the rank of Lord Justice Clerk, the second-highest judge in Scotland. The third Baronet left an only daughter, and was succeeded by his brother, Sir Hew Wallace of Wolmet. Sir Thomas Wallace was the fifth Baronet, and when his son, a captain in the Guards, predeceased him, the estates passed to his daughter, Frances. In 1760 she married John Dunlop of Dunlop, the friend of the poet Robert Burns. His eldest son, Sir John Dunlop, succeeded his maternal grandmother as sixth Baronet of Craigie, and assumed the name of Wallace."
