Claiborne Dandridge West of Buckingham County, Virginia

No known contemporary record gives the middle name or initial of Claiborne WEST, although a grandson left a statement written about 1921 that his middle initial was "C".

Although long standing family legends claim that Claiborne West (1759-1822) descends from one of the four sons of Sir Thomas West (1555 - 24 March 1601/2), second Baron De La Warr, of Wherwell, Southampton, England, no proof of that connection is known to exist in spite of intensive professional and amateur research beginning in 1924 or earlier.

Details of several generations of Sir Thomas West’s (1555 - 24 March 1601/2) descendants can be found in John Frederick Dorman, compiler and editor, "Adventures of Purse and Person, Virginia, 1607-1624/5", 4th edition, three  volumes (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Company, Inc., 2007), vol. 3, pp. 486-508.

The information which follows is based almost entirely on the book: Louetta West Wilson and John William Johnson, "Claiborne Dandridge West of Buckingham County, Virginia" (Dallas, Texas: Southern Methodist University Printing Department, 1967).  This book contains much information not available here.  The book has been microfilmed and is available through the Family History Library of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on FHL US/CAN Film 1036177 Item 6.
