In it, he left to his son John (at age 21) the tract Haslenut Ridge; if Jon were to s.p., the land was to go to his daus. Charity, Eliza, Preti(o)tia, and Mary. Daus. Preti(o)tia and Marywere to have New Year's Gift, also in Baltimore County. Solomon Sparrow,John Belt, and John Jordaine were to be overseers. The will was witnessed by Eliza Chesell, Eliza Butler, Charity Chesell, and John Elsey. An account was filed May 14, 1697 by his extx., dau. Charity, wife of John Jordain. Inventories of 166.1.3.4 and 9.3.8 were mentioned, and payments from John Taylor, merchant in London, and Joseph Owens. Payments were made to Col. Darnall. Legatees were his wife (unnamed) and five children (unnamed). at Anne Arundel Co., Maryland, USA.1,10 GAV-8 GKJ-8.11
Reference: From Cheryl Grubbs:
     [quote]Richard Tyding's father apparently came to the colonies rather early and established himself to have a considerable estate at the time of his death.
     Will of Richard Tydings, dated 2 Feb 1687
     He named his son John at age 21; to eldest daughter Charity; to second daughter Elizabeth; to their daughter Pretitia; to fourth daughter Mary; he stated that all four were to receive their inheritance when the daughters came to be of age 16. Daughters Charity and Elizabeth to have 300 acres in Baltimore County. Daughters Pretitia and Mary to have 500 acre tract called "New Year's" on Gunpowder River. Children: John, Charity, Elizabeth, Pretitia and Mary.
     Overseers of the estate were Solomon Sparrow(brother of Thomas Sparrow), John Jordain and John Belt, (unindentified but are sons-in-law of Richard.) Charity should have been married by this date. Elizabeth had children by John BELT as early as ca. 1678 so the indication that they may also have been under sixteen is incorrect unless this a different Richard Tydings.
     [AACo, Will, Bk. 6, p. 31]
     There have been a number of researchers of the Brashear line that said that this Richard Tydings was married to Charity Sparrows. See the records of Richard Tydings Sr. for more on this argument.

     "Records show that three families, those of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia, and John BELT and wife Elizabeth were all closely related to each other. Their ages, plus the records would suggest that one person from each couple was a sibling to one person from each of the other two couples. What is unknown, is exactly which persons were the siblings.
     "TYDINGS FAMILY: Richard TYDINGS wrote his will 2 Feb. 1687. Richard named his son John who was under 21, his eldest daughter Charity, second daughter Elizabeth, third daughter Pretitia, and fourth daughter Mary. All four of his daughters were individually stated to receive bequests at the age of 16 or marriage. As overseers he named Solomon SPARROW, John BELT, and John JORDAIN. The witnesses were Elizabeth CHESELL, Elizabeth BUTLER, Charles CHISELL, and John ELSEY. Of note, is that to his daughters Charity and Elizabeth he left 375 acres in Baltimore County called Nanjomie.1
     "Richard TYDINGS' will included no probate dated, but he died between 4 June 1688 when he was made an appraiser of the estate of Edward MARRIOTE2 and 4 July 1689 in Anne Arundel Co., MD. On 13 Feb. 1692/3 Cap. Henry HANSLAP, former sheriff of AA County showed that a commission was granted to said HANSLAP on 4 July 1689 to prove the will of Richard TYDINGS and that it was by him subscribed and proved on 13 July 1689. At the same time, the administration was given to John JORDAIN "who intermarried with Charity the Exex of the sd will."3 Note that no executor was named in the recorded copy of the will. On 20 July 1689 John JORDAIN posted bond for the administration, with John BELT and Jos. WILLIAMS his securites.3
     "Various publications over the past 100 years have incorrectly listed Richard TYDINGS daughter Elizabeth as being identical to Elizabeth, wife of John BELT. That Richard's daughter Elizabeth actually married Robert CRUMP is proved by the following:
     "On 25 June 1719 Robert CRUMP and wife Elizabeth of Queen Anne's County, MD sold to Philip THOMAS of Anne Arundel Co., MD, the aforesaid Robert CRUMP "standing legally seized in right of the said Elizabeth his wife of the moiety or half part of a tract of Land called Nanjamie" of 375 acres.4 The deed stated they sold the half part (187.5 acres) that was the right of his wife Elizabeth. Elizabeth's right in the land would have been from it having been her one half of the tract willed to her and her sister Charity in their father's will. Therefore the Elizabeth that first married John BELT, and second John LAMB, and died testate in 1737 as Elizabeth LAMB is NOT the daughter of Richard TYDINGS of the 1687 will. In 1748 Philip THOMAS of Anne Arundel County sold the 187.5 acres, the "undivided moiety" of the tract "Nanjemy" to Thomas HARRISON.5
     "The inventory of Robert CRUMP's estate taken 11 March 1748 in Queen Anne's Co. and was signed by "next of kin" Preposia BOSTICK.6 A Preciosia CRUMP married Samuel BOSTOCK 14 Jan. 1730 at St. Luke's Parish, Queen Anne's County.7 Use of the name Preciosia/Pretiotia among the CRUMP family is added evidence that Richard TYDINGS daughter Elizabeth married Robert CRUMP.
     "On 23 Sep. 1706 Jno JORDAN and wife Charity filed an additional account on the estate of Richard TIDINGS. Included were payments to Dutton LEAN for his wife's portion, Eliza TIDINGS for her portion, Mary TIDINGS for part of her portion, Phillip DOWELL "who married Mary TYDINGS afterwards" for another part of her portion, and Jno TIDINGS for his portion.8 Had Richard's daughter Elizabeth been identical to John BELT's wife/widow, then the payment should have been to Elizabeth BELT if before 1702 (when she married John LAMB) or Elizabeth LAMB (if after 1702).
     "Charles Brashear had stated that Richard TYDINGS' wife Charity was a SPARROW, daughter of Thomas SPARROW and Elizabeth KINSEY, and that this was the Thomas SPARROW who died about 1674.9 There is simply no evidence to support such a conclusion.
     "One of the more important SPARROW documents was recorded in Anne Arundel Co, MD Land Records.10 This shows that:
     " 1. Thomas SPARROW transported himself and his wife Elizabeth, and his children Thomas and Elizabeth to MD in 1649.
     " 2. In 7 Sep. 1659 Thomas SPARROW, son and heir of the first Thomas SPARROW received a patent of 590 for Sparrow's Rest, which had been surveyed for his father.
     "The above show that the first Thomas SPARROW was deceased by 1659, and that his Thomas [Jr.] obtained the patent for his land in 1659.
     "Thomas SPARROW [Jr.] wrote his will on 1 Jan. 1674, which was proved on 5 June 1675.11
     "He named his wife Elizabeth, son Thomas, daughter Elizabeth, brother Solomon, and sister Elizabeth CHAMP. Witnesses were Nath. HEATHCOTE and Richard TYDEINGS. As his brother Solomon was not listed as having been transported in 1649, he would have been born after 1649. No mention was made of a daughter named Charity.
     "Another error in Brashear's book is that he stated Richard TYDINGS was born 6 Dec. 1654 in All Hallow's Parish, the son of John TYDINGS and wife Ann. There are no records for All Hallow's Parish at that early a date. There was a John TYDINGS and wife Ann who were the parents of a son Richard born in All Hallow's Parish on 4 Dec. 1754.12
     "There was a Richard TYDINGS baptized 29 May 1625 at St. Mary's Whitechapel, Middlesex, England, son of John TYDINGS and wife Margaret.47 Some researchers have assumed that this was the Richard of MD, but he is not. Richard TYDINGS and Margaret TYDINGS [his mother] were both buried 30 June 1625 at St. Mary's Whitechapel, the same locality where he was born.
     "It was brought to my attention by Mary Kay Coker that there was a Richard TITHINGS who was baptized at St Saviour Church, Southwark, Surrey, which is just across the Thames River from London.
     "She stated there were entries for:48
     " John Tithings married Ann Willson 20 Sep 1630
     " John s/o John Tiding a carpenter bpt 26 Feb 1631/2 (John Tyding Inf[ant] buried 01 Aug 1633)
     " Richard s/o John Tithing a turner bpt 09 Mar 1633/4
     " John s/o John Tydings a turner 12 Aug 1638
     " John Tydings [not marked as infant] buried 03 Jul 1639
     " Ann Tidings [not marked as infant] buried 13 Feb 1641/2
     "This has not been further investigated, but listed only as a possibility that could be explored for the identity of Richard TYDINGS of Maryland.
     "In 1682, Richard TYDINGS claimed rights for the transportation Charity TYDINGS into Maryland.36
     "Children of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity:
     "1. Charity TYDINGS1 b. say 1673;16 m.1. John JORDAIN;3,40 m.2. Michael PACQUINET;13 m.3. Mr. SELMON;14 living 175014
     "2 John TYDINGS1 b. say 1675;16 m. Mary ELLIS 16 day, 6th month (this is NOT June), 170512
     "3. Elizabeth TYDINGS1 b. say 1677;16 m. Robert CRUMP4 before 10 Jan. 1700;15 living 1719 Queen Anne's Co., MD4
     "4. Pretiotia TYDINGS1 b. say 1679;16 m.1 Dutton LANE;8 his will 31 May 1716, but not probated until 8 Oct. 1726;17 she m.2 John BOREING18
between 8 Aug. 171719 and 22 Jan. 1718 ;20 d. 2 Feb. 1734 St. Paul's Parish, Baltimore Co., MD21
     "5. Mary TYDINGS1 b. say 1681;16 m. Phillip DOWELL 11 June 1702;12 d. between 5 Apr.171722 and 26 Jan. 1733 Anne Arundel Co., MD23
     "On 27 Dec. 1726 Michael PACQUINET (signed as PAQUNETT) and wife Charity of Bath Co., NC gave a Power of Attorney to our loving "cuzin" John BELT of Baltimore Co., MD to sell the tract "Nangemy" on the Gunpowder River in Baltimore County.13 This John BELT was the son of John BELT and wife Elizabeth. As "cousin" was a term that was often used for "nephew" it was upon this record that some genealogical publications concluded that John BELT's wife Elizabeth was identical to Elizabeth, daughter of Richard TYDINGS, and that her son John BELT [Jr.] of the Power of Attorney was a nephew to Charity. In this case, though, it would appear that Charity, daughter of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, and John BELT, son of John BELT and wife Elizabeth were actual first cousins.
     "On 12 Dec. 1750 Charity SELMAN "one of the daughters and devisees of Richard TIDINGS" sold to Thomas HARRISON all right and claim to one moiety or half part of a tract called Nanjemy, the whole tract containing 375 acres.14 (Note: Thomas HARRISON would then possess the whole 375 acres. This would be a different Charity SELMAN from the daughter of John TYDINGS and Mary ELIIS that first married Solomon SPARROW, and secondly a SELMON.)
     "BELT FAMILY: On 1 Oct. 1649 Humphrie BELT of Lower Norfolk County, VA made oath that he was due 50 acres for transporting Margery CRAGGES his wife.24 The last record known of "Humfrey" BELT in VA was on 15 March 1654 [1654/5], when he was sued by Thomas JAYNES for a debt of 338 pounds tobacco.25
     "The first record of Humphrey BELT in MD was on 30 June 1663 when he entered rights for 200 acres for the transportation of himself, John BELT, Anne BELT, and Sarah BELT.26
     "If Humphrey was married about about 1649 at the time he claimed transportation for his wife, then the assumed children whom he transported by 1663 could have been born:
     "1. John BELT born say 1650; m. ca. 1677 Elizabeth; d. 1698
     "2. Anne BELT born say 1652
     "3. Sarah BELT born say 1654
     "That no transportation was claimed for his wife Margery, she may have died. The move from VA to MD may have occurred at any time between 1655 and 1663. Often a number of years may have passed between the actual transportation to MD, and the claiming of land. Sometimes land was only claimed for part of the family at one time, with the remainder claimed at a different date. If that happened, then Humphrey BELT may not have claimed land for his entire family, intending to claim any remaining land for a different tract.
     "Information on the FAMILY OF JOHN BELT is on a separate page.
     "RAMSEY FAMILY: William RAMSEY was in St. Mary's Co., MD as early as 1653 when he was about 14 years old. The will of Edward COTTEN was written there on 4 Apr. 1653.27 To Barnaby JACKSON he gave the labor of William RAMSEY and George SPROUSE until the ensuing St. Andrew's Day, provided he provide them sufficient apparell during that time and 3 months following. On St. Andrew's Day, William RAMSEY, "my servant" was to be delivered to John WARREN for 7 years.
     "On 17 October 1682 as a resident of Anne Arundel Co.28 William RAMSEY, age 43, gave a deposition for George THOMPSON regarding land formerly belonging to Barnaby JACKSON in St. Mary's County.29
     "William RAMSEY had settled in Anne Arundel County by 1665, when as a resident of there he purchased a tract in (then) Talbot County from Henry HAWKINS.32
     "In 1675 William RAMSEY of Anne Arundel Co. had proved his right to 150 acres, 50 due for his own time of service, and 100 acres due for the transportation of Anne WETHERALL and Thomas BULL in 1663.30
     "The will of William RAMSEY was written written on 12 May and proved on 20 June 1689 in Anne Arundel County. He left land to his "eldest son" Charles on the Gunpowder River [in Baltimore Co.] with the residue of land to his sons William and John. Also named was his wife Pretiotia who was the executrix and received the dwelling plantation and 250 acres on the Chester River along with the remainder of the personal estate, and to be disposed of according to her discretion "for the maintainance of her & my three youngest Children."31
     "After the death of William RAMSEY, his widow Pretiotia secondly married to Thomas BEVAN by 22 Oct. 1691 when Thomas BEVAN/BEVON and his wife Pretiotia executors of the will of William RAMSEY of Anne Arundel County sold to John "JURDAN" [JORDAN/JORDAIN], also of Anne Arundel County, the tract on the Chester River in Talbot County that William RAMSEY had purchased in 1665, and left to his wife Pretiotia in his will.33 On 4 Oct. 1692 Thomas BEVON and wife "Pretiosa" sold the Anne Arundel County land willed by William RAMSEY to his wife Pretiotia.34
     "William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia had additional children that were not named in the will that were just called "my three youngest children." A "Peshoshia" RAMSEY was buried 2 [blank] 1698/9 at All Hallow's Parish in Anne Arundel County and thought to be a daughter. A few months later on 14 May 1699, Thomas RAMSEY, "son of William and Peshoshia" was baptized there.12 Another believed child is Charity, wife of Thomas HODGES. Thomas HODGES was a witness to the will of John BELT. Thomas and wife Charity were the parents of children:35
     "Thomas HODGES born 3 Nov. 1697
     "Pretiotia HODGES born 13 May 1700
     "John HODGES born 30 Sep. 1702
     "Charles Ramsey HODGES born 18 Feb. 1704
     "Charity HODGES born 5 Aug. 1707
     "Elizabeth HODGES born 7 May 1710
     "Sarah HODGES born 22 Mar. 1713
     "William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia had children:
     "1. Charles RAMSEY31 b. say 1667; m. Elizabeth (THURSTON) WHALLEY by 1 Mar. 169137 [1691/2]
     "2. William RAMSEY31 b. say 1669
     "3. John RAMSEY31 b. say 167138
     "4. Charity RAMSEY b. say 1680; m. ca. 1696 Thomas HODGES
     "5. "Peshoshia" RAMSEY b. ca 1680s; bur. 2 (blank) 1698/9 All Hallow's Parish, Anne Arundel Co., MD12
     "6. Thomas RAMSEY b. posthumously? ca. 1689; bap. 14 May 1699 All Hallow's Parish as "son of William and "Peshoshia."12 Called nephew in the will of John BELT, Sr. written in 1697. (Note than many children from families that had Quaker ties appear to have been baptized when they were older at All Hallow's Parish. Elizabeth, widow of John BELT had 4 children from her first marriage baptized at the same time as her daughter Margaret in 1703. The eldest had to be over age 10.)
     "THE RELATIONSHIPS:
     "BELT TO TYDINGS
John BELT, son of John BELT and wife Elizabeth was "cousin" of Michael PACQUINET and wife Charity TYDINGS. If first cousins, then there would be a sibling relationship of either Richard TYDINGS or his wife Charity to either John BELT or his wife Elizabeth.
     "BELT TO RAMSEY
The elder John BELT in his 1697 will made a bequest to his "nephew" Thomas RAMSEY. Thomas was listed in the baptismal records as a son of William and "Peshoshia." That would imply that either John BELT or wife Elizabeth was a sibling to either William RAMSEY or wife Pretiotia.
     "TYDINGS TO RAMSEY
     "The use of the name Pretiotia among the children of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, the use of the name Charity among the children of William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia would imply a relationship between the two families. Added evidence would be that William RAMSEY's wife Pretiotia and her second husband Thomas BEVAN/BEVON sold his Talbot County land to John "JURDAN" [JORDAN/JORDAIN] who was the husband of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity's daughter Charity.
     "THE POSSIBILITIES:
     "POSSIBILITY ONE:
     "1. Richard TYDINGS b. say 1642; m. Charity (b. say 1656); he d. ca. 1689 Anne Arundel Co., MD
     "2. Pretiotia TYDINGS b. say 1650; m.1. William RAMSEY/RAMSAY (b. ca. 1639); m.2. Thomas BEVON/BEVANS
     "3. Elizabeth TYDINGS b. say 1661; m.1. John BELT; ca. 1677; m.2. 25 July 1701 John LAMB; d. between 1 Aug. and 14 Oct. 1737 Anne Arundel Co., MD
     "On 10 Aug. 1663, George NOTTLEFOLD/NOTTLEFORD transferred Foldland in Anne Arundel Co., MD to Richard TIDING, who on 11 Sep. 1665 as Richard TIDINGS, cooper, granted the deed and assigment to Elizabeth BREWER, widow. Richard signed his mark, as an "R".39 As Richard TYDEINGS he witnessed the 1674 will of Thomas SPARROW,11 as TYDINGS he was an appraiser for the 1676 estate of John SHAW,41 as TIDINGS an appraiser for the 1676 estate of Thomas SPARROW,42, as TYDINGS an appraiser for the 1679 estate of Thomas BESSON the elder,43 as TIDENS an appraiser for the 1679 estate of Enoch BOULTON,44 and as TYDING an appraiser for the 1684 estate of Edmond TOWNHILL.45
     "In each case his mark was indicated as an "R". Although his will was indicated as signed with the mark "RT", there is no reason to believe it is not the same man, or that there was more than one Richard TYDINGS at that time in MD.
     "The likelihood that this possibility is the correct one would seem extremely remote.
     "POSSIBILITY TWO:
     "1. William RAMSEY b. ca. 1639; m. Pretiotia b. say 1650
     "2. Charity RAMSEY b. say 1656; m. Richard TYDINGS ca. 1672
     "3. Elizabeth RAMSEY b. say 1661; m. John BELT ca. 1677
     "William RAMSEY was in MD as a 14 year old servant. There is no indication that his parents were in MD for him to have had siblings there. This possibility would also seem unlikely.
     "POSSIBILITY THREE:
     "Humphrey BELT the father of:
     "1. John BELT b. ca. 1650; m. ca. 1677 Elizabeth, she b. ca. 1661
     "2. Pretiotia BELT, b. say 1650; m. ca. 1666 William RAMSEY (b. ca. 1639)
     "3. Charity BELT b. say 1656; m. ca. 1672 Richard TYDINGS
     "As discussed under the TYDINGS section, Richard TYDINGS claimed land by 1682 for the rights in the transportation of his wife. As rights could be transferred, it does not necessarily mean that Richard was the person to actually transport her to MD. Humphrey BELT was living in VA as of 1655. If Charity was his daughter and born in VA, and he moved to MD about 1656, he may have reserved the rights for her transportation for a later time. If so, on the death of Humphrey BELT, Charity's husband Richard TYDINGS could have claimed the rights. Left unexplained is the lack of a transportation entry for either a Pretiotia BELT by Humphrey, or by her husband William RAMSEY.
     "A possibility is that Pretiotia was a second marriage for William RAMSEY, and that in his will he named only those children by an unknown first wife. If Pretiotia was a BELT, and a second wife of William RAMSEY, this would give:
     "Humphrey BELT father of:
     "1. John BELT b. ca. 1650 VA; m. ca. 1677 Elizabeth, she b. ca. 1661
     "2. Anne BELT b. ca. 1652 VA
     "3. Sarah BELT b. ca. 1654 VA
     "4. Charity BELT b. ca. 1656 VA; m. Richard TYDINGS
     "5. Pretiotia BELT b. ca. 1658-1662 MD; m. William RAMSEY as his second wife
     " 1. Charity RAMSEY born say 1680; m. ca. 1696 Thomas HODGES
     " 2. "Peshoshia" [Pretiotia] RAMSEY born 1680s; d. 1698
     " 3. Thomas RAMSEY called nephew in the will of John BELT
     "This last revised version of this possibility would seem very possible as being the correct version.
     "POSSIBILITY FOUR:
     "1. Pretiotia -?-, b. say 1650; m. ca. 1670 William RAMSEY (b. ca. 1639)
     "2. Charity -?-, b. say 1656; m. ca. 1674 Richard TYDINGS
     "3. Elizabeth -?- b. say 1659; m. ca. 1677 John BELT
     "the three being sisters, father unknown.
     "This scenario could also have the option as in possibility three, where Pretiotia was a second wife to William RAMSEY. The father of the three girls never claimed transporation for Charity, and Richard TYDINGS later did.
     "1. Charity -?- b. say 1656 outside of MD; m. Richard TYDINGS
     "2. Elizabeth -?- b. say 1659 MD; m. ca. 1677 John BELT
     "3. Pretiotia b. say 1662 MD; m. as his second wife, William RAMSEY
     "This possibility is also possible as being the correct version.
     "The witnesses to John BELT's will were John TIDINGS, Charity JORDAN, Ann SMITH, Thomas HODGES, Daniel PIERCE, Darby SWEANY and Ann PIERCE. Note that under all scenarios, that John TIDEINGS and Charity JORDON would have been his nephew and niece, and Thos. HODGES would have been the spouse of his niece.
     "CONCLUSION:
     "Either Possibility 3 or 4 would appear to be the most likely relation of the TYDINGS, BELT and RAMSEY families to each other. Unfortunately, for her descendants, the identity of Elizabeth, wife of John BELT remains unknown in either possibility.

     "Records show that three families, those of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia, and John BELT and wife Elizabeth were all closely related to each other. Their ages, plus the records would suggest that one person from each couple was a sibling to one person from each of the other two couples. What is unknown, is exactly which persons were the siblings.
     "TYDINGS FAMILY: Richard TYDINGS wrote his will 2 Feb. 1687. Richard named his son John who was under 21, his eldest daughter Charity, second daughter Elizabeth, third daughter Pretitia, and fourth daughter Mary. All four of his daughters were individually stated to receive bequests at the age of 16 or marriage. As overseers he named Solomon SPARROW, John BELT, and John JORDAIN. The witnesses were Elizabeth CHESELL, Elizabeth BUTLER, Charles CHISELL, and John ELSEY. Of note, is that to his daughters Charity and Elizabeth he left 375 acres in Baltimore County called Nanjomie.1
     "Richard TYDINGS' will included no probate dated, but he died between 4 June 1688 when he was made an appraiser of the estate of Edward MARRIOTE2 and 4 July 1689 in Anne Arundel Co., MD. On 13 Feb. 1692/3 Cap. Henry HANSLAP, former sheriff of AA County showed that a commission was granted to said HANSLAP on 4 July 1689 to prove the will of Richard TYDINGS and that it was by him subscribed and proved on 13 July 1689. At the same time, the administration was given to John JORDAIN "who intermarried with Charity the Exex of the sd will."3 Note that no executor was named in the recorded copy of the will. On 20 July 1689 John JORDAIN posted bond for the administration, with John BELT and Jos. WILLIAMS his securites.3
     "Various publications over the past 100 years have incorrectly listed Richard TYDINGS daughter Elizabeth as being identical to Elizabeth, wife of John BELT. That Richard's daughter Elizabeth actually married Robert CRUMP is proved by the following:
     "On 25 June 1719 Robert CRUMP and wife Elizabeth of Queen Anne's County, MD sold to Philip THOMAS of Anne Arundel Co., MD, the aforesaid Robert CRUMP "standing legally seized in right of the said Elizabeth his wife of the moiety or half part of a tract of Land called Nanjamie" of 375 acres.4 The deed stated they sold the half part (187.5 acres) that was the right of his wife Elizabeth. Elizabeth's right in the land would have been from it having been her one half of the tract willed to her and her sister Charity in their father's will. Therefore the Elizabeth that first married John BELT, and second John LAMB, and died testate in 1737 as Elizabeth LAMB is NOT the daughter of Richard TYDINGS of the 1687 will. In 1748 Philip THOMAS of Anne Arundel County sold the 187.5 acres, the "undivided moiety" of the tract "Nanjemy" to Thomas HARRISON.5
     "The inventory of Robert CRUMP's estate taken 11 March 1748 in Queen Anne's Co. and was signed by "next of kin" Preposia BOSTICK.6 A Preciosia CRUMP married Samuel BOSTOCK 14 Jan. 1730 at St. Luke's Parish, Queen Anne's County.7 Use of the name Preciosia/Pretiotia among the CRUMP family is added evidence that Richard TYDINGS daughter Elizabeth married Robert CRUMP.
     "On 23 Sep. 1706 Jno JORDAN and wife Charity filed an additional account on the estate of Richard TIDINGS. Included were payments to Dutton LEAN for his wife's portion, Eliza TIDINGS for her portion, Mary TIDINGS for part of her portion, Phillip DOWELL "who married Mary TYDINGS afterwards" for another part of her portion, and Jno TIDINGS for his portion.8 Had Richard's daughter Elizabeth been identical to John BELT's wife/widow, then the payment should have been to Elizabeth BELT if before 1702 (when she married John LAMB) or Elizabeth LAMB (if after 1702).
     "Charles Brashear had stated that Richard TYDINGS' wife Charity was a SPARROW, daughter of Thomas SPARROW and Elizabeth KINSEY, and that this was the Thomas SPARROW who died about 1674.9 There is simply no evidence to support such a conclusion.
     "One of the more important SPARROW documents was recorded in Anne Arundel Co, MD Land Records.10 This shows that:
     " 1. Thomas SPARROW transported himself and his wife Elizabeth, and his children Thomas and Elizabeth to MD in 1649.
     " 2. In 7 Sep. 1659 Thomas SPARROW, son and heir of the first Thomas SPARROW received a patent of 590 for Sparrow's Rest, which had been surveyed for his father.
     "The above show that the first Thomas SPARROW was deceased by 1659, and that his Thomas [Jr.] obtained the patent for his land in 1659.
     "Thomas SPARROW [Jr.] wrote his will on 1 Jan. 1674, which was proved on 5 June 1675.11
     "He named his wife Elizabeth, son Thomas, daughter Elizabeth, brother Solomon, and sister Elizabeth CHAMP. Witnesses were Nath. HEATHCOTE and Richard TYDEINGS. As his brother Solomon was not listed as having been transported in 1649, he would have been born after 1649. No mention was made of a daughter named Charity.
     "Another error in Brashear's book is that he stated Richard TYDINGS was born 6 Dec. 1654 in All Hallow's Parish, the son of John TYDINGS and wife Ann. There are no records for All Hallow's Parish at that early a date. There was a John TYDINGS and wife Ann who were the parents of a son Richard born in All Hallow's Parish on 4 Dec. 1754.12
     "There was a Richard TYDINGS baptized 29 May 1625 at St. Mary's Whitechapel, Middlesex, England, son of John TYDINGS and wife Margaret.47 Some researchers have assumed that this was the Richard of MD, but he is not. Richard TYDINGS and Margaret TYDINGS [his mother] were both buried 30 June 1625 at St. Mary's Whitechapel, the same locality where he was born.
     "It was brought to my attention by Mary Kay Coker that there was a Richard TITHINGS who was baptized at St Saviour Church, Southwark, Surrey, which is just across the Thames River from London.
     "She stated there were entries for:48
     " John Tithings married Ann Willson 20 Sep 1630
     " John s/o John Tiding a carpenter bpt 26 Feb 1631/2 (John Tyding Inf[ant] buried 01 Aug 1633)
     " Richard s/o John Tithing a turner bpt 09 Mar 1633/4
     " John s/o John Tydings a turner 12 Aug 1638
     " John Tydings [not marked as infant] buried 03 Jul 1639
     " Ann Tidings [not marked as infant] buried 13 Feb 1641/2
     "This has not been further investigated, but listed only as a possibility that could be explored for the identity of Richard TYDINGS of Maryland.
     "In 1682, Richard TYDINGS claimed rights for the transportation Charity TYDINGS into Maryland.36
     "Children of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity:
     "1. Charity TYDINGS1 b. say 1673;16 m.1. John JORDAIN;3,40 m.2. Michael PACQUINET;13 m.3. Mr. SELMON;14 living 175014

     "On 27 Dec. 1726 Michael PACQUINET (signed as PAQUNETT) and wife Charity of Bath Co., NC gave a Power of Attorney to our loving "cuzin" John BELT of Baltimore Co., MD to sell the tract "Nangemy" on the Gunpowder River in Baltimore County.13 This John BELT was the son of John BELT and wife Elizabeth. As "cousin" was a term that was often used for "nephew" it was upon this record that some genealogical publications concluded that John BELT's wife Elizabeth was identical to Elizabeth, daughter of Richard TYDINGS, and that her son John BELT [Jr.] of the Power of Attorney was a nephew to Charity. In this case, though, it would appear that Charity, daughter of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, and John BELT, son of John BELT and wife Elizabeth were actual first cousins.
     "On 12 Dec. 1750 Charity SELMAN "one of the daughters and devisees of Richard TIDINGS" sold to Thomas HARRISON all right and claim to one moiety or half part of a tract called Nanjemy, the whole tract containing 375 acres.14 (Note: Thomas HARRISON would then possess the whole 375 acres. This would be a different Charity SELMAN from the daughter of John TYDINGS and Mary ELIIS that first married Solomon SPARROW, and secondly a SELMON.)
     "BELT FAMILY: On 1 Oct. 1649 Humphrie BELT of Lower Norfolk County, VA made oath that he was due 50 acres for transporting Margery CRAGGES his wife.24 The last record known of "Humfrey" BELT in VA was on 15 March 1654 [1654/5], when he was sued by Thomas JAYNES for a debt of 338 pounds tobacco.25
     "The first record of Humphrey BELT in MD was on 30 June 1663 when he entered rights for 200 acres for the transportation of himself, John BELT, Anne BELT, and Sarah BELT.26
     "If Humphrey was married about about 1649 at the time he claimed transportation for his wife, then the assumed children whom he transported by 1663 could have been born:
     "1. John BELT born say 1650; m. ca. 1677 Elizabeth; d. 1698
     "2. Anne BELT born say 1652
     "3. Sarah BELT born say 1654
     "That no transportation was claimed for his wife Margery, she may have died. The move from VA to MD may have occurred at any time between 1655 and 1663. Often a number of years may have passed between the actual transportation to MD, and the claiming of land. Sometimes land was only claimed for part of the family at one time, with the remainder claimed at a different date. If that happened, then Humphrey BELT may not have claimed land for his entire family, intending to claim any remaining land for a different tract.
     "Information on the FAMILY OF JOHN BELT is on a separate page.
     "RAMSEY FAMILY: William RAMSEY was in St. Mary's Co., MD as early as 1653 when he was about 14 years old. The will of Edward COTTEN was written there on 4 Apr. 1653.27 To Barnaby JACKSON he gave the labor of William RAMSEY and George SPROUSE until the ensuing St. Andrew's Day, provided he provide them sufficient apparell during that time and 3 months following. On St. Andrew's Day, William RAMSEY, "my servant" was to be delivered to John WARREN for 7 years.
     "On 17 October 1682 as a resident of Anne Arundel Co.28 William RAMSEY, age 43, gave a deposition for George THOMPSON regarding land formerly belonging to Barnaby JACKSON in St. Mary's County.29
     "William RAMSEY had settled in Anne Arundel County by 1665, when as a resident of there he purchased a tract in (then) Talbot County from Henry HAWKINS.32
     "In 1675 William RAMSEY of Anne Arundel Co. had proved his right to 150 acres, 50 due for his own time of service, and 100 acres due for the transportation of Anne WETHERALL and Thomas BULL in 1663.30
     "The will of William RAMSEY was written written on 12 May and proved on 20 June 1689 in Anne Arundel County. He left land to his "eldest son" Charles on the Gunpowder River [in Baltimore Co.] with the residue of land to his sons William and John. Also named was his wife Pretiotia who was the executrix and received the dwelling plantation and 250 acres on the Chester River along with the remainder of the personal estate, and to be disposed of according to her discretion "for the maintainance of her & my three youngest Children."31
     "After the death of William RAMSEY, his widow Pretiotia secondly married to Thomas BEVAN by 22 Oct. 1691 when Thomas BEVAN/BEVON and his wife Pretiotia executors of the will of William RAMSEY of Anne Arundel County sold to John "JURDAN" [JORDAN/JORDAIN], also of Anne Arundel County, the tract on the Chester River in Talbot County that William RAMSEY had purchased in 1665, and left to his wife Pretiotia in his will.33 On 4 Oct. 1692 Thomas BEVON and wife "Pretiosa" sold the Anne Arundel County land willed by William RAMSEY to his wife Pretiotia.34
     "William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia had additional children that were not named in the will that were just called "my three youngest children." A "Peshoshia" RAMSEY was buried 2 [blank] 1698/9 at All Hallow's Parish in Anne Arundel County and thought to be a daughter. A few months later on 14 May 1699, Thomas RAMSEY, "son of William and Peshoshia" was baptized there.12 Another believed child is Charity, wife of Thomas HODGES. Thomas HODGES was a witness to the will of John BELT. Thomas and wife Charity were the parents of children:35
     "Thomas HODGES born 3 Nov. 1697
     "Pretiotia HODGES born 13 May 1700
     "John HODGES born 30 Sep. 1702
     "Charles Ramsey HODGES born 18 Feb. 1704
     "Charity HODGES born 5 Aug. 1707
     "Elizabeth HODGES born 7 May 1710
     "Sarah HODGES born 22 Mar. 1713
     "William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia had children:
     "1. Charles RAMSEY31 b. say 1667; m. Elizabeth (THURSTON) WHALLEY by 1 Mar. 169137 [1691/2]
     "2. William RAMSEY31 b. say 1669
     "3. John RAMSEY31 b. say 167138
     "4. Charity RAMSEY b. say 1680; m. ca. 1696 Thomas HODGES
     "5. "Peshoshia" RAMSEY b. ca 1680s; bur. 2 (blank) 1698/9 All Hallow's Parish, Anne Arundel Co., MD12
     "6. Thomas RAMSEY b. posthumously? ca. 1689; bap. 14 May 1699 All Hallow's Parish as "son of William and "Peshoshia."12 Called nephew in the will of John BELT, Sr. written in 1697. (Note than many children from families that had Quaker ties appear to have been baptized when they were older at All Hallow's Parish. Elizabeth, widow of John BELT had 4 children from her first marriage baptized at the same time as her daughter Margaret in 1703. The eldest had to be over age 10.)
     "THE RELATIONSHIPS:
     "BELT TO TYDINGS
John BELT, son of John BELT and wife Elizabeth was "cousin" of Michael PACQUINET and wife Charity TYDINGS. If first cousins, then there would be a sibling relationship of either Richard TYDINGS or his wife Charity to either John BELT or his wife Elizabeth.
     "BELT TO RAMSEY
The elder John BELT in his 1697 will made a bequest to his "nephew" Thomas RAMSEY. Thomas was listed in the baptismal records as a son of William and "Peshoshia." That would imply that either John BELT or wife Elizabeth was a sibling to either William RAMSEY or wife Pretiotia.
     "TYDINGS TO RAMSEY
     "The use of the name Pretiotia among the children of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, the use of the name Charity among the children of William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia would imply a relationship between the two families. Added evidence would be that William RAMSEY's wife Pretiotia and her second husband Thomas BEVAN/BEVON sold his Talbot County land to John "JURDAN" [JORDAN/JORDAIN] who was the husband of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity's daughter Charity.
     "THE POSSIBILITIES:
     "POSSIBILITY ONE:
     "1. Richard TYDINGS b. say 1642; m. Charity (b. say 1656); he d. ca. 1689 Anne Arundel Co., MD
     "2. Pretiotia TYDINGS b. say 1650; m.1. William RAMSEY/RAMSAY (b. ca. 1639); m.2. Thomas BEVON/BEVANS
     "3. Elizabeth TYDINGS b. say 1661; m.1. John BELT; ca. 1677; m.2. 25 July 1701 John LAMB; d. between 1 Aug. and 14 Oct. 1737 Anne Arundel Co., MD
     "On 10 Aug. 1663, George NOTTLEFOLD/NOTTLEFORD transferred Foldland in Anne Arundel Co., MD to Richard TIDING, who on 11 Sep. 1665 as Richard TIDINGS, cooper, granted the deed and assigment to Elizabeth BREWER, widow. Richard signed his mark, as an "R".39 As Richard TYDEINGS he witnessed the 1674 will of Thomas SPARROW,11 as TYDINGS he was an appraiser for the 1676 estate of John SHAW,41 as TIDINGS an appraiser for the 1676 estate of Thomas SPARROW,42, as TYDINGS an appraiser for the 1679 estate of Thomas BESSON the elder,43 as TIDENS an appraiser for the 1679 estate of Enoch BOULTON,44 and as TYDING an appraiser for the 1684 estate of Edmond TOWNHILL.45
     "In each case his mark was indicated as an "R". Although his will was indicated as signed with the mark "RT", there is no reason to believe it is not the same man, or that there was more than one Richard TYDINGS at that time in MD.
     "The likelihood that this possibility is the correct one would seem extremely remote.
     "POSSIBILITY TWO:
     "1. William RAMSEY b. ca. 1639; m. Pretiotia b. say 1650
     "2. Charity RAMSEY b. say 1656; m. Richard TYDINGS ca. 1672
     "3. Elizabeth RAMSEY b. say 1661; m. John BELT ca. 1677
     "William RAMSEY was in MD as a 14 year old servant. There is no indication that his parents were in MD for him to have had siblings there. This possibility would also seem unlikely.
     "POSSIBILITY THREE:
     "Humphrey BELT the father of:
     "1. John BELT b. ca. 1650; m. ca. 1677 Elizabeth, she b. ca. 1661
     "2. Pretiotia BELT, b. say 1650; m. ca. 1666 William RAMSEY (b. ca. 1639)
     "3. Charity BELT b. say 1656; m. ca. 1672 Richard TYDINGS
     "As discussed under the TYDINGS section, Richard TYDINGS claimed land by 1682 for the rights in the transportation of his wife. As rights could be transferred, it does not necessarily mean that Richard was the person to actually transport her to MD. Humphrey BELT was living in VA as of 1655. If Charity was his daughter and born in VA, and he moved to MD about 1656, he may have reserved the rights for her transportation for a later time. If so, on the death of Humphrey BELT, Charity's husband Richard TYDINGS could have claimed the rights. Left unexplained is the lack of a transportation entry for either a Pretiotia BELT by Humphrey, or by her husband William RAMSEY.
     "A possibility is that Pretiotia was a second marriage for William RAMSEY, and that in his will he named only those children by an unknown first wife. If Pretiotia was a BELT, and a second wife of William RAMSEY, this would give:
     "Humphrey BELT father of:
     "1. John BELT b. ca. 1650 VA; m. ca. 1677 Elizabeth, she b. ca. 1661
     "2. Anne BELT b. ca. 1652 VA
     "3. Sarah BELT b. ca. 1654 VA
     "4. Charity BELT b. ca. 1656 VA; m. Richard TYDINGS
     "5. Pretiotia BELT b. ca. 1658-1662 MD; m. William RAMSEY as his second wife
     " 1. Charity RAMSEY born say 1680; m. ca. 1696 Thomas HODGES
     " 2. "Peshoshia" [Pretiotia] RAMSEY born 1680s; d. 1698
     " 3. Thomas RAMSEY called nephew in the will of John BELT
     "This last revised version of this possibility would seem very possible as being the correct version.
     "POSSIBILITY FOUR:
     "1. Pretiotia -?-, b. say 1650; m. ca. 1670 William RAMSEY (b. ca. 1639)
     "2. Charity -?-, b. say 1656; m. ca. 1674 Richard TYDINGS
     "3. Elizabeth -?- b. say 1659; m. ca. 1677 John BELT
     "the three being sisters, father unknown.
     "This scenario could also have the option as in possibility three, where Pretiotia was a second wife to William RAMSEY. The father of the three girls never claimed transporation for Charity, and Richard TYDINGS later did.
     "1. Charity -?- b. say 1656 outside of MD; m. Richard TYDINGS
     "2. Elizabeth -?- b. say 1659 MD; m. ca. 1677 John BELT
     "3. Pretiotia b. say 1662 MD; m. as his second wife, William RAMSEY
     "This possibility is also possible as being the correct version.
     "The witnesses to John BELT's will were John TIDINGS, Charity JORDAN, Ann SMITH, Thomas HODGES, Daniel PIERCE, Darby SWEANY and Ann PIERCE. Note that under all scenarios, that John TIDEINGS and Charity JORDON would have been his nephew and niece, and Thos. HODGES would have been the spouse of his niece.
     "CONCLUSION:
     "Either Possibility 3 or 4 would appear to be the most likely relation of the TYDINGS, BELT and RAMSEY families to each other. Unfortunately, for her descendants, the identity of Elizabeth, wife of John BELT remains unknown in either possibility.

Charity Adams      There is considerable confusion over the maiden name of the Charity who married Richard Tydings. There are several theories among the various family trees posted on Ancestry.com, but, as usual, none of these offer any evidence to support them. The best discussion I have come across is from Barnes [2015:244]. I have tentatively chosen to identify his wife, Charity as Charity Adams. I have no confidence in the date of marriage I show.
from Barnes [2015:244]: "[Richard Tydings] m/ Charity (N).A search of the MD Calendar of Wills and Skordas revealed several women, one of whom might have been Charity, wife of Richard Tydings. Charity Adams, on 29 May 1662, was named in the will of William Barring, of S[aint] M[ary's] Co.Charity Adams had been transported c 1653.
     Another Charity was mentioned as having been transported c1666.Charity Bagbie, on 29 April 1670, was named as a dau. in the will of John Bagbie, of C[alvert] Co.
     Charity Stone, on 15 Aug. 1674, wit. the will of George Puddington, of A[nne] A[rundel] Co."
     There is a Find a Grave memorial that asserts that Richard Tydings' wife was Charity Sparry, dau. of Thomas Sparry (1620-1674) and Elizabeth Kinsey (1615-1714).

Charity Adams and Elizabeth Tydings There appears to be controversies concerning 1) the identity of Richard and Charity Tydings' daughter Elizabeth, and 2) the maiden name of her mother, Charity. A Find A Grave webiste memorial records: "Elizabeth Tydings Crump:
     Birth:      1673, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, USA
     Death:      1719, Queen Anne's County, Maryland, USA
     Elizabeth Tydings, daughter of Richard Tydings (1638-1686) and Charity (______) Tydings, of Ann Arundel Co., MD, married Robert Crump I, son of William and Frances (Mountney) Crump of Queen Ann's Co., MD. There is a widely propagated genealogical error involving the husband of Elizabeth Tydings which contends she married John Belt, son of Humphrey Belt. Another genealogical error involving the Tydings family concerns the maiden name of Richard Tydings' wife, Charity, claiming it to be "Sparrow". Richard Tydings' wife WAS named Charity but her surname is unknown. That her given name was Charity is gleaned from the Quaker marriage record of their son, John, where he is listed as the son of "Richard and Charity". The Tydings family and the Sparrow family literature is replete with the inaccurate statement that Richard Tydings married Charity Sparrow, the daughter of Thomas Sparrow, Sr. (1615-1659). There is NO accepted record that Thomas Sparrow, Sr. had a daughter named Charity. See Thomas Sparrow's FAG memorial #124905698.
     Various publications over the past many decades have incorrectly listed Richard Tydings' daughter, Elizabeth, as being identical to Elizabeth, wife of John Belt. Innumerable family trees published on Ancestry.com have propagated this error without seeking proper documentation. That Richard Tydings' daughter, Elizabeth, actually married Robert Crump I is accepted presently and is proven by the following:
     "Richard Tydings of Anne Arundel Co., MD left his will dated 02 Feb 1687 (Maryland Prerogative Court Wills 6, p40, without probate entry) which gave a 375 acre tract (called "Nanjomie") in Baltimore Co. to his daughters, Charity and Elizabeth. On 25 June 1719, Robert Crump and his wife, Elizabeth, of Queen Anne's Co., MD, sold 187.5 acres, half of "Nanjomie", to Phillip Thomas, "of which Robert was seized in right of his wife" (Baltimore Co., MD Deed Bk. TR #DS, pp 47-51).
     On 12 Dec 1750, Charity Sellman, "one of the daughters and devisees of Richard Tidings" (and widow of William Sellman), sold to Thomas Harrison all right and claim to one moiety or half part (187.5 acres) of a tract called "Nanjemy" (Nanjomie), the whole tract containing 375 acres. (Baltimore Co., MD Land Records TR#D:107-108, FHL microfilm 0,013,330) (See also "Adventurers of Purse and Person, Virginia, 1607-1624/5" by John Frederick Dorman, Vol. I, 2004, p362, Footnote #50, which confirms the above documentation). (FYI: John Frederick Dorman's book is a seminal genealogy reference book which is accepted by the Jamestowne Society and all other hereditary organizations for which its information is pertinent).
     To clarify, the 25 June 1719 deed mentioned above stated Robert and Elizabeth (Tydings) Crump (I) sold the half part that was the right of his wife, Elizabeth. Elizabeth's right to the land would have been from it having been her one half of the tract (Nanjomie) willed to her and her sister, Charity, in their father's will dated 02 Feb 1687. Therefore, the Elizabeth who first married John Belt, and secondly John Lamb, and died testate in 1737 as Elizabeth Lamb is NOT the daughter of Richard Tydings of the 02 Feb 1687 will. In 1748 Phillip Thomas of Anne Arundel County sold the 187.5 acres, the "undivided moiety" of the tract "Nanjomie" to Thomas Harrison (Baltimore Deeds TR#C:89-91, and TR#C:99-101, FHL microfilm 0,013,330). Unfortunately for her descendants, the identity (maiden name) of Elizabeth, wife of John Belt and John Lamb, remains unknown.
     The inventory of Robert Crumps's estate taken 11 March 1748 in Queen Anne's Co. was signed by "next of kin" Preposia Bostick (Robert Crump inventory, MD Inventories 41:209-210, FHL microfilm 0,012,876). A Preciosia Crump married Samuel Bostock 14 Jan 1730 at St. Luke's Parish, Queen Anne's County. Repeated use of the name Preciosia/Pretiotia among the Crump family is added evidence that Richard Tydings daughter, Elizabeth, married Robert Crump as Elizabeth's sister and third daughter of Richard Tydings was also named Pretiotia. This name is found spelled in various ways , i.e. Letitia/Pretosia/Prelitia/Preciosia.
     Robert and Elizabeth (Tydings) Crump (I) had the following children:
     1) Robert Crump II (see below).
     2) Mary Crump, m. 1) 10 Jun 1719 Abraham Montague, 2) (_____) Godfree.
     3) Preciosia Crump, m. 14 Jan 1730/1 Samuel Bostick of Queen Anne's Co., MD.

     "Records show that three families, those of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia, and John BELT and wife Elizabeth were all closely related to each other. Their ages, plus the records would suggest that one person from each couple was a sibling to one person from each of the other two couples. What is unknown, is exactly which persons were the siblings.
     "TYDINGS FAMILY: Richard TYDINGS wrote his will 2 Feb. 1687. Richard named his son John who was under 21, his eldest daughter Charity, second daughter Elizabeth, third daughter Pretitia, and fourth daughter Mary. All four of his daughters were individually stated to receive bequests at the age of 16 or marriage. As overseers he named Solomon SPARROW, John BELT, and John JORDAIN. The witnesses were Elizabeth CHESELL, Elizabeth BUTLER, Charles CHISELL, and John ELSEY. Of note, is that to his daughters Charity and Elizabeth he left 375 acres in Baltimore County called Nanjomie.1
     "Richard TYDINGS' will included no probate dated, but he died between 4 June 1688 when he was made an appraiser of the estate of Edward MARRIOTE2 and 4 July 1689 in Anne Arundel Co., MD. On 13 Feb. 1692/3 Cap. Henry HANSLAP, former sheriff of AA County showed that a commission was granted to said HANSLAP on 4 July 1689 to prove the will of Richard TYDINGS and that it was by him subscribed and proved on 13 July 1689. At the same time, the administration was given to John JORDAIN "who intermarried with Charity the Exex of the sd will."3 Note that no executor was named in the recorded copy of the will. On 20 July 1689 John JORDAIN posted bond for the administration, with John BELT and Jos. WILLIAMS his securites.3
     "Various publications over the past 100 years have incorrectly listed Richard TYDINGS daughter Elizabeth as being identical to Elizabeth, wife of John BELT. That Richard's daughter Elizabeth actually married Robert CRUMP is proved by the following:
     "On 25 June 1719 Robert CRUMP and wife Elizabeth of Queen Anne's County, MD sold to Philip THOMAS of Anne Arundel Co., MD, the aforesaid Robert CRUMP "standing legally seized in right of the said Elizabeth his wife of the moiety or half part of a tract of Land called Nanjamie" of 375 acres.4 The deed stated they sold the half part (187.5 acres) that was the right of his wife Elizabeth. Elizabeth's right in the land would have been from it having been her one half of the tract willed to her and her sister Charity in their father's will. Therefore the Elizabeth that first married John BELT, and second John LAMB, and died testate in 1737 as Elizabeth LAMB is NOT the daughter of Richard TYDINGS of the 1687 will. In 1748 Philip THOMAS of Anne Arundel County sold the 187.5 acres, the "undivided moiety" of the tract "Nanjemy" to Thomas HARRISON.5
     "The inventory of Robert CRUMP's estate taken 11 March 1748 in Queen Anne's Co. and was signed by "next of kin" Preposia BOSTICK.6 A Preciosia CRUMP married Samuel BOSTOCK 14 Jan. 1730 at St. Luke's Parish, Queen Anne's County.7 Use of the name Preciosia/Pretiotia among the CRUMP family is added evidence that Richard TYDINGS daughter Elizabeth married Robert CRUMP.
     "On 23 Sep. 1706 Jno JORDAN and wife Charity filed an additional account on the estate of Richard TIDINGS. Included were payments to Dutton LEAN for his wife's portion, Eliza TIDINGS for her portion, Mary TIDINGS for part of her portion, Phillip DOWELL "who married Mary TYDINGS afterwards" for another part of her portion, and Jno TIDINGS for his portion.8 Had Richard's daughter Elizabeth been identical to John BELT's wife/widow, then the payment should have been to Elizabeth BELT if before 1702 (when she married John LAMB) or Elizabeth LAMB (if after 1702).
     "Charles Brashear had stated that Richard TYDINGS' wife Charity was a SPARROW, daughter of Thomas SPARROW and Elizabeth KINSEY, and that this was the Thomas SPARROW who died about 1674.9 There is simply no evidence to support such a conclusion.
     "One of the more important SPARROW documents was recorded in Anne Arundel Co, MD Land Records.10 This shows that:
     " 1. Thomas SPARROW transported himself and his wife Elizabeth, and his children Thomas and Elizabeth to MD in 1649.
     " 2. In 7 Sep. 1659 Thomas SPARROW, son and heir of the first Thomas SPARROW received a patent of 590 for Sparrow's Rest, which had been surveyed for his father.
     "The above show that the first Thomas SPARROW was deceased by 1659, and that his Thomas [Jr.] obtained the patent for his land in 1659.
     "Thomas SPARROW [Jr.] wrote his will on 1 Jan. 1674, which was proved on 5 June 1675.11
     "He named his wife Elizabeth, son Thomas, daughter Elizabeth, brother Solomon, and sister Elizabeth CHAMP. Witnesses were Nath. HEATHCOTE and Richard TYDEINGS. As his brother Solomon was not listed as having been transported in 1649, he would have been born after 1649. No mention was made of a daughter named Charity.
     "Another error in Brashear's book is that he stated Richard TYDINGS was born 6 Dec. 1654 in All Hallow's Parish, the son of John TYDINGS and wife Ann. There are no records for All Hallow's Parish at that early a date. There was a John TYDINGS and wife Ann who were the parents of a son Richard born in All Hallow's Parish on 4 Dec. 1754.12
     "There was a Richard TYDINGS baptized 29 May 1625 at St. Mary's Whitechapel, Middlesex, England, son of John TYDINGS and wife Margaret.47 Some researchers have assumed that this was the Richard of MD, but he is not. Richard TYDINGS and Margaret TYDINGS [his mother] were both buried 30 June 1625 at St. Mary's Whitechapel, the same locality where he was born.
     "It was brought to my attention by Mary Kay Coker that there was a Richard TITHINGS who was baptized at St Saviour Church, Southwark, Surrey, which is just across the Thames River from London.
     "She stated there were entries for:48
     " John Tithings married Ann Willson 20 Sep 1630
     " John s/o John Tiding a carpenter bpt 26 Feb 1631/2 (John Tyding Inf[ant] buried 01 Aug 1633)
     " Richard s/o John Tithing a turner bpt 09 Mar 1633/4
     " John s/o John Tydings a turner 12 Aug 1638
     " John Tydings [not marked as infant] buried 03 Jul 1639
     " Ann Tidings [not marked as infant] buried 13 Feb 1641/2
     "This has not been further investigated, but listed only as a possibility that could be explored for the identity of Richard TYDINGS of Maryland.
     "In 1682, Richard TYDINGS claimed rights for the transportation Charity TYDINGS into Maryland.36
     "Children of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity:
     "1. Charity TYDINGS1 b. say 1673;16 m.1. John JORDAIN;3,40 m.2. Michael PACQUINET;13 m.3. Mr. SELMON;14 living 175014
     "2 John TYDINGS1 b. say 1675;16 m. Mary ELLIS 16 day, 6th month (this is NOT June), 170512
     "3. Elizabeth TYDINGS1 b. say 1677;16 m. Robert CRUMP4 before 10 Jan. 1700;15 living 1719 Queen Anne's Co., MD4
     "4. Pretiotia TYDINGS1 b. say 1679;16 m.1 Dutton LANE;8 his will 31 May 1716, but not probated until 8 Oct. 1726;17 she m.2 John BOREING18
between 8 Aug. 171719 and 22 Jan. 1718 ;20 d. 2 Feb. 1734 St. Paul's Parish, Baltimore Co., MD21
     "5. Mary TYDINGS1 b. say 1681;16 m. Phillip DOWELL 11 June 1702;12 d. between 5 Apr.171722 and 26 Jan. 1733 Anne Arundel Co., MD23
     "On 27 Dec. 1726 Michael PACQUINET (signed as PAQUNETT) and wife Charity of Bath Co., NC gave a Power of Attorney to our loving "cuzin" John BELT of Baltimore Co., MD to sell the tract "Nangemy" on the Gunpowder River in Baltimore County.13 This John BELT was the son of John BELT and wife Elizabeth. As "cousin" was a term that was often used for "nephew" it was upon this record that some genealogical publications concluded that John BELT's wife Elizabeth was identical to Elizabeth, daughter of Richard TYDINGS, and that her son John BELT [Jr.] of the Power of Attorney was a nephew to Charity. In this case, though, it would appear that Charity, daughter of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, and John BELT, son of John BELT and wife Elizabeth were actual first cousins.
     "On 12 Dec. 1750 Charity SELMAN "one of the daughters and devisees of Richard TIDINGS" sold to Thomas HARRISON all right and claim to one moiety or half part of a tract called Nanjemy, the whole tract containing 375 acres.14 (Note: Thomas HARRISON would then possess the whole 375 acres. This would be a different Charity SELMAN from the daughter of John TYDINGS and Mary ELIIS that first married Solomon SPARROW, and secondly a SELMON.)
     "BELT FAMILY: On 1 Oct. 1649 Humphrie BELT of Lower Norfolk County, VA made oath that he was due 50 acres for transporting Margery CRAGGES his wife.24 The last record known of "Humfrey" BELT in VA was on 15 March 1654 [1654/5], when he was sued by Thomas JAYNES for a debt of 338 pounds tobacco.25
     "The first record of Humphrey BELT in MD was on 30 June 1663 when he entered rights for 200 acres for the transportation of himself, John BELT, Anne BELT, and Sarah BELT.26
     "If Humphrey was married about about 1649 at the time he claimed transportation for his wife, then the assumed children whom he transported by 1663 could have been born:
     "1. John BELT born say 1650; m. ca. 1677 Elizabeth; d. 1698
     "2. Anne BELT born say 1652
     "3. Sarah BELT born say 1654
     "That no transportation was claimed for his wife Margery, she may have died. The move from VA to MD may have occurred at any time between 1655 and 1663. Often a number of years may have passed between the actual transportation to MD, and the claiming of land. Sometimes land was only claimed for part of the family at one time, with the remainder claimed at a different date. If that happened, then Humphrey BELT may not have claimed land for his entire family, intending to claim any remaining land for a different tract.
     "Information on the FAMILY OF JOHN BELT is on a separate page.
     "RAMSEY FAMILY: William RAMSEY was in St. Mary's Co., MD as early as 1653 when he was about 14 years old. The will of Edward COTTEN was written there on 4 Apr. 1653.27 To Barnaby JACKSON he gave the labor of William RAMSEY and George SPROUSE until the ensuing St. Andrew's Day, provided he provide them sufficient apparell during that time and 3 months following. On St. Andrew's Day, William RAMSEY, "my servant" was to be delivered to John WARREN for 7 years.
     "On 17 October 1682 as a resident of Anne Arundel Co.28 William RAMSEY, age 43, gave a deposition for George THOMPSON regarding land formerly belonging to Barnaby JACKSON in St. Mary's County.29
     "William RAMSEY had settled in Anne Arundel County by 1665, when as a resident of there he purchased a tract in (then) Talbot County from Henry HAWKINS.32
     "In 1675 William RAMSEY of Anne Arundel Co. had proved his right to 150 acres, 50 due for his own time of service, and 100 acres due for the transportation of Anne WETHERALL and Thomas BULL in 1663.30
     "The will of William RAMSEY was written written on 12 May and proved on 20 June 1689 in Anne Arundel County. He left land to his "eldest son" Charles on the Gunpowder River [in Baltimore Co.] with the residue of land to his sons William and John. Also named was his wife Pretiotia who was the executrix and received the dwelling plantation and 250 acres on the Chester River along with the remainder of the personal estate, and to be disposed of according to her discretion "for the maintainance of her & my three youngest Children."31
     "After the death of William RAMSEY, his widow Pretiotia secondly married to Thomas BEVAN by 22 Oct. 1691 when Thomas BEVAN/BEVON and his wife Pretiotia executors of the will of William RAMSEY of Anne Arundel County sold to John "JURDAN" [JORDAN/JORDAIN], also of Anne Arundel County, the tract on the Chester River in Talbot County that William RAMSEY had purchased in 1665, and left to his wife Pretiotia in his will.33 On 4 Oct. 1692 Thomas BEVON and wife "Pretiosa" sold the Anne Arundel County land willed by William RAMSEY to his wife Pretiotia.34
     "William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia had additional children that were not named in the will that were just called "my three youngest children." A "Peshoshia" RAMSEY was buried 2 [blank] 1698/9 at All Hallow's Parish in Anne Arundel County and thought to be a daughter. A few months later on 14 May 1699, Thomas RAMSEY, "son of William and Peshoshia" was baptized there.12 Another believed child is Charity, wife of Thomas HODGES. Thomas HODGES was a witness to the will of John BELT. Thomas and wife Charity were the parents of children:35
     "Thomas HODGES born 3 Nov. 1697
     "Pretiotia HODGES born 13 May 1700
     "John HODGES born 30 Sep. 1702
     "Charles Ramsey HODGES born 18 Feb. 1704
     "Charity HODGES born 5 Aug. 1707
     "Elizabeth HODGES born 7 May 1710
     "Sarah HODGES born 22 Mar. 1713
     "William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia had children:
     "1. Charles RAMSEY31 b. say 1667; m. Elizabeth (THURSTON) WHALLEY by 1 Mar. 169137 [1691/2]
     "2. William RAMSEY31 b. say 1669
     "3. John RAMSEY31 b. say 167138
     "4. Charity RAMSEY b. say 1680; m. ca. 1696 Thomas HODGES
     "5. "Peshoshia" RAMSEY b. ca 1680s; bur. 2 (blank) 1698/9 All Hallow's Parish, Anne Arundel Co., MD12
     "6. Thomas RAMSEY b. posthumously? ca. 1689; bap. 14 May 1699 All Hallow's Parish as "son of William and "Peshoshia."12 Called nephew in the will of John BELT, Sr. written in 1697. (Note than many children from families that had Quaker ties appear to have been baptized when they were older at All Hallow's Parish. Elizabeth, widow of John BELT had 4 children from her first marriage baptized at the same time as her daughter Margaret in 1703. The eldest had to be over age 10.)
     "THE RELATIONSHIPS:
     "BELT TO TYDINGS
John BELT, son of John BELT and wife Elizabeth was "cousin" of Michael PACQUINET and wife Charity TYDINGS. If first cousins, then there would be a sibling relationship of either Richard TYDINGS or his wife Charity to either John BELT or his wife Elizabeth.
     "BELT TO RAMSEY
The elder John BELT in his 1697 will made a bequest to his "nephew" Thomas RAMSEY. Thomas was listed in the baptismal records as a son of William and "Peshoshia." That would imply that either John BELT or wife Elizabeth was a sibling to either William RAMSEY or wife Pretiotia.
     "TYDINGS TO RAMSEY
     "The use of the name Pretiotia among the children of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, the use of the name Charity among the children of William RAMSEY and wife Pretiotia would imply a relationship between the two families. Added evidence would be that William RAMSEY's wife Pretiotia and her second husband Thomas BEVAN/BEVON sold his Talbot County land to John "JURDAN" [JORDAN/JORDAIN] who was the husband of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity's daughter Charity.
     "THE POSSIBILITIES:
     "POSSIBILITY ONE:
     "1. Richard TYDINGS b. say 1642; m. Charity (b. say 1656); he d. ca. 1689 Anne Arundel Co., MD
     "2. Pretiotia TYDINGS b. say 1650; m.1. William RAMSEY/RAMSAY (b. ca. 1639); m.2. Thomas BEVON/BEVANS
     "3. Elizabeth TYDINGS b. say 1661; m.1. John BELT; ca. 1677; m.2. 25 July 1701 John LAMB; d. between 1 Aug. and 14 Oct. 1737 Anne Arundel Co., MD
     "On 10 Aug. 1663, George NOTTLEFOLD/NOTTLEFORD transferred Foldland in Anne Arundel Co., MD to Richard TIDING, who on 11 Sep. 1665 as Richard TIDINGS, cooper, granted the deed and assigment to Elizabeth BREWER, widow. Richard signed his mark, as an "R".39 As Richard TYDEINGS he witnessed the 1674 will of Thomas SPARROW,11 as TYDINGS he was an appraiser for the 1676 estate of John SHAW,41 as TIDINGS an appraiser for the 1676 estate of Thomas SPARROW,42, as TYDINGS an appraiser for the 1679 estate of Thomas BESSON the elder,43 as TIDENS an appraiser for the 1679 estate of Enoch BOULTON,44 and as TYDING an appraiser for the 1684 estate of Edmond TOWNHILL.45
     "In each case his mark was indicated as an "R". Although his will was indicated as signed with the mark "RT", there is no reason to believe it is not the same man, or that there was more than one Richard TYDINGS at that time in MD.
     "The likelihood that this possibility is the correct one would seem extremely remote.
     "POSSIBILITY TWO:
     "1. William RAMSEY b. ca. 1639; m. Pretiotia b. say 1650
     "2. Charity RAMSEY b. say 1656; m. Richard TYDINGS ca. 1672
     "3. Elizabeth RAMSEY b. say 1661; m. John BELT ca. 1677
     "William RAMSEY was in MD as a 14 year old servant. There is no indication that his parents were in MD for him to have had siblings there. This possibility would also seem unlikely.
     "POSSIBILITY THREE:
     "Humphrey BELT the father of:
     "1. John BELT b. ca. 1650; m. ca. 1677 Elizabeth, she b. ca. 1661
     "2. Pretiotia BELT, b. say 1650; m. ca. 1666 William RAMSEY (b. ca. 1639)
     "3. Charity BELT b. say 1656; m. ca. 1672 Richard TYDINGS
     "As discussed under the TYDINGS section, Richard TYDINGS claimed land by 1682 for the rights in the transportation of his wife. As rights could be transferred, it does not necessarily mean that Richard was the person to actually transport her to MD. Humphrey BELT was living in VA as of 1655. If Charity was his daughter and born in VA, and he moved to MD about 1656, he may have reserved the rights for her transportation for a later time. If so, on the death of Humphrey BELT, Charity's husband Richard TYDINGS could have claimed the rights. Left unexplained is the lack of a transportation entry for either a Pretiotia BELT by Humphrey, or by her husband William RAMSEY.
     "A possibility is that Pretiotia was a second marriage for William RAMSEY, and that in his will he named only those children by an unknown first wife. If Pretiotia was a BELT, and a second wife of William RAMSEY, this would give:
     "Humphrey BELT father of:
     "1. John BELT b. ca. 1650 VA; m. ca. 1677 Elizabeth, she b. ca. 1661
     "2. Anne BELT b. ca. 1652 VA
     "3. Sarah BELT b. ca. 1654 VA
     "4. Charity BELT b. ca. 1656 VA; m. Richard TYDINGS
     "5. Pretiotia BELT b. ca. 1658-1662 MD; m. William RAMSEY as his second wife
     " 1. Charity RAMSEY born say 1680; m. ca. 1696 Thomas HODGES
     " 2. "Peshoshia" [Pretiotia] RAMSEY born 1680s; d. 1698
     " 3. Thomas RAMSEY called nephew in the will of John BELT
     "This last revised version of this possibility would seem very possible as being the correct version.
     "POSSIBILITY FOUR:
     "1. Pretiotia -?-, b. say 1650; m. ca. 1670 William RAMSEY (b. ca. 1639)
     "2. Charity -?-, b. say 1656; m. ca. 1674 Richard TYDINGS
     "3. Elizabeth -?- b. say 1659; m. ca. 1677 John BELT
     "the three being sisters, father unknown.
     "This scenario could also have the option as in possibility three, where Pretiotia was a second wife to William RAMSEY. The father of the three girls never claimed transporation for Charity, and Richard TYDINGS later did.
     "1. Charity -?- b. say 1656 outside of MD; m. Richard TYDINGS
     "2. Elizabeth -?- b. say 1659 MD; m. ca. 1677 John BELT
     "3. Pretiotia b. say 1662 MD; m. as his second wife, William RAMSEY
     "This possibility is also possible as being the correct version.
     "The witnesses to John BELT's will were John TIDINGS, Charity JORDAN, Ann SMITH, Thomas HODGES, Daniel PIERCE, Darby SWEANY and Ann PIERCE. Note that under all scenarios, that John TIDEINGS and Charity JORDON would have been his nephew and niece, and Thos. HODGES would have been the spouse of his niece.
     "CONCLUSION:
     "Either Possibility 3 or 4 would appear to be the most likely relation of the TYDINGS, BELT and RAMSEY families to each other. Unfortunately, for her descendants, the identity of Elizabeth, wife of John BELT remains unknown in either possibility.

John Tydings Barnes [2015:245]: "John Tydings probably died at a relatively young age, and his widow seems to have m. 2nd, Samuel Lockwood. In addition to the Tydings "children-in-law" mentioned below, the Lockwoods seem to have had the three youngest Tydings children baptized in All Hallows Parish on the same day as their own sons Samuel and John.5 He was was mentioned in a land transaction by Richard Tydings on 13 June 1680 at Anne Arundel Co., Maryland, USA, from Barnes [2015:244]: "On 13 June 1680, Tydings had resurv. a 200 a. tract in A[nne] A[rundel] Co. known as Haslenut Ridge, orginally surv. in 1663 for John Gray; the tract was found to contain actually only 166 a. It was later held by John Tydings."
Note:
MRR:42, 166.7
In Richard Tydings's will dated 2 February 1687, John Tydings was named as an heir;      From Barnes [2015:244]: "In it he left to his sone John (at age 21) the tract Haselnut Ridge; if John were to s.p., the land was to go to his daus. Charity, Eliza, Preti(o)tia, and Mary. Daus. Preti(o)tia and Mary were to have New Year's Gift, also in B[altimore] Co. Solomon Sparrow, John Belt, and John Jordaine were to be overseers. The will was wit. by Eliza Chesell, Eliza Butler, Charity Chesell and John Elsey."7,8
