Our earliest ancestor of the Frogge family of Virginia was Colonel John Frogge, born abt.1710-1717, probably in Scotland or Virginia. "Some believe John is the grandson of Alxander William Frogge who was born in Edinborro Scotland, about 1652. Alexander had several children in the 1670 & 80's one of which was named John.(DT Froedge, of Kentucky) a great number of parish records have been searched in the Midlothan area of Scotland at the Scotish Records Office, to(DT Froedge, of Kentucky) no avail, and the Geneology Library in London which had lots on school graduations in England and Scotland in that era, also to no avail. There is a cite from a listing of the Register of the Overwarton Parish that John's birth was around 1709, which conflicts with other cites of 1717." (DT Froedge, of Kentucky) Others, have thought and believe, that John Frogge was the son of Jonathan William Froke and Mary Elizabeth Epperton of Maryland.( I have no proof for either conclusion, Stan Hodges ) He is also called Major John Frogge in some accounts. John Frogge married Elizabeth Strother daughter and heiress of William Strother died 1733. The Mother of Elizabeth Strother was Margaret Watts, daughter of Richard Watts.>>>>> In a Deposition taken in 1793,Colonel John Frogge is stated to be about eighty three years old.
