- [S464] Henry Hobart Vail, Genealogy of some of the Vail family descended from Jeremiah Vail at Salem, Mass., 1639, page 33-34 - John [Jeremiah 1], b. 1663; m. Grace Braddiek [or Burgess]; d. 18 Aug., 1737. His widow d. 18 May, 1751, aged 85.
John Vail lived at Southold in the house he inherited from his father Jeremiah Vail, whose widow, Joyce Vail, was still an inmate of the house when the census of 1698 was taken. He probably married, in 1684, Grace, the daughter of John Braddiek, a sea-captain who for a time lived on the western half of the lot originally owned by Lieutenant John Budd. John Vail's elder half-brother, Jeremiah, lived on the eastern half.
Grace Vail signed a deed with Joyce Vail July 18, 1684. The deed was the joint act of Jeremiah Vail and John Vail.
John Vail was appointed, November 9, 1694, guardian to Jeremiah Foster of Southampton, cordwainer. The latter was a beneficiary under the will of Jeremiah VaiL
On December 17, 1694, Jeremiah Vail, Jr., and John Vail made a joint deed granting land for a windmill on Orient Point.
These and other similar evidences show the relationship of these parties positively, and clear away the tradition that John Vail came from Wales. He was born, 1663, in Southold, and was the son of Jeremiah Vail. The census of 1698 furnishes a list of John's family at that date. The order of names does not indicate their age. Children: Abigail, Irene, Tabitha, John, Mary, Obadiah. Josiah, Daniel, Samuel, James,
In the roll of Southold Militia for 1715, Company One, are the names of John Vaile, John Vaile, Samuel Vaile, and Daniell Vaile under Capt. Benjamin Youngs. The Vail family of Orange County, N. Y., are descendants from Samuel, Josiah, and Benjamin of the above, and for once the three-brother tradition is sustained. Nothing is known of Obadiah Vail, nor of the three daughters at the head of the list.
