    Notes 
    • Notes from Jane Perry:

      ALEXANDER SCOTT TIDBALL (1796-1848) was the son of Joseph Tidball and Jane Scott. Joseph Tidball immigrated to this country from Wales and settled in Philadelphia, Pa. Later, with his wife, he moved to
      Winchester in Frederick Co., Virginia, and there he prospered greatly. At one time he owned most of the land upon which the town of Winchester now stands. No less than fifteen full pages of the Index of Deeds in the Clerk's Office in Winchester are filled with the real estate transactions of this family and they cover
      only those which took place prior to 1838.

      He and his brother, Thomas Allen Tidball, who served as Clerk and Deputy Clerk of the Court for Frederick County for 52 years, purchased from their father "Hawthorne", originally part of the "Glen Burnie" plantation, Alexander Scott Tidball later selling his interest to his brother who lived at "Hawthorne" from 1813 until his death in 1856.

      Mr. Tidball studied law and was admitted to the bar. He engaged in the practice of his profession and in various other business activities. About 1820 he married Millicent McGuire I born at "Grove Farm," Frederick County, Va. in 1798), daughter of Edward and Elizabeth Holmes McGuire and aunt of Dr. Hunter McGuire,
      Medical Director of "Stonewall" Jackson's Corps in the Army of Northern Virginia.

      Alexander Scott Tidball lived on Water Street in Winchester. His home was later owned by Dr. Boyd. The children of Alexander Scott and Millicent McGuire Tidball were: Jane Scott, Elizabeth Holmes, Lucy Page, Mary, Edward McGuire (the first born). Frank and Alfred. Alexander Scott Tidball died in Winchester and
      is buried there. His brother Josiah Tidball then living in Fauquier Co., Va. married Lucy G. Page, daughter of Mann Page III of "Mannsfield" and Mary Tayloe, his wife.
