William was born in 1693 in Teggs Delight, Cecil County, Maryland. He was the son of Edward Teague and Susan. William married Isabella Loftin in 1714 in Baltimore, Cecil County, Maryland. Isabella was the daughter of William Loftin and Elizabeth Ives. Isabella was born on December 19, 1693, in Maryland. William and Elizabeth Loftin lived on Misquito Creek at a place called Spesutia Hundred, near the coast. William Loftin was born in Pennsylvania.
According to Peggy Teague Logan, the first Loftin ancestor was Leonard Loftin (Laughton). It is said the Loftins were from England and that they were intermarried with the Dutch, as they lived in the Netherlands “during the persecution.” They returned to England in the late 1500’s. Leonard “…came to America from Kent, England aboard the ship WEST on July 12, 1636. He, along with six other white men and two negroes, were to work a plantation located on the Charles River in Henrico County, VA, owned by Mrs. Elizabeth Parker.”
William and Isabella were members of the Old St. Mary Anne's Episcopal Church in the town of Northeast, Cecil County, Maryland. The records of this church, established in 1706, record the dates of birth of 5 of their 9 children.
