Subject: [MDSTMARY] Cager/Kedger family of Saint Mary's
Subject of query: Dorothy (Cager) Monroe, daughter of Robert Cager/Kedger and wife of George Monroe.
Robert Cager/Kedger came to Saint Mary's before 1637. His 400 acre freehold on the North East Branch of the Herring Creek, called Ichcomb's Freehold, bounding on the west with Herring Creek.
Robert Cager's wife is listed as Dorothy and so was their daughter in his will. In his will it states that daughter Dorothy is the wife of George Monroe.
There is a belief that the daughter Dorothy married first George Monroe and then William Jones. Their is proof of a daughter Ann Jones, who married Samuel Brashear and her parents are named as William and Dorothy Jones.
I understand someone joined a lineage society around 1920 who claimed Ann (Jones) Brashear, wife of Samuel Brashear is the daughter of Dorothy (Cager) Jones and William Jones.
*My question is: Has anyone found proof that Robert Cager's Dorothy married William Jones?* I would like to see proof of this claim that Dorothy, the daughter of Robert Cager and the wife of George Monroe did indeed marry a second time to William Jones."1

In Robert Cager's will dated 10 August 1667 at St. Mary's Co., Maryland, USA, Dorothy Cager was named as an heir;

Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear died on 2 February 1782 at Rocky Springs, Guilford (now Rockingham) Co., North Carolina, USA, at age 77.5
Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear was buried after 2 February 1782 at Brashears-Kries Cemetery, Sugar Grove, Roane Co., Tennessee, USA,

; from Find A Grave website:
     Birth:      Feb. 19, 1704, Prince George's County, Maryland, USA
     Death:      Feb. 2, 1782, Guilford County, North Carolina, USA
     Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear married Charity Dowell on 13 Oct 1726 at All Hallows Parish, Anne Arundel Co., Maryland near where her father lived. Charity Dowell was born on 04 Apr 1711 at Anne Arundel Co., Maryland, d/o Phillip Dowell and Mary Tydings). (Also for Mary Tydings see the children of Richard and Charity (_____) Tydings on the Find A Grave Memorial of Thomas Sparrow).
     The surname Brashear is found in the genealogical literature in many forms, e. g. Brasseur, Brassier, Brassieur, Brassiere, Brasher, Brashear(s), Boshears, Brashier, Brasier, Brazier, Basher and Bashier but the Anglicized form, Brashear, will be used in this bio. Robert C. Brashear's ancestors were forced out of France by the terrible Catholic religious persecution and massacres of the French Huguenots during the 16th and 17th centuries. From my efforts, his sacrifices are recognized by two hereditary organizations; the "National Huguenot Society" and "The Huguenot Society of the Founders of Manakin in the Colony of Virginia". The Brashear family history in America is a proud one dating to the French Huguenot (French Protestant refugee) immigrant, Benois (Benjamin) Brassier, who landed in Virginia in 1653 but due to the hostile environment created by the English settlers toward Frenchmen, he moved his wife, Mary, and children to Calvert Co., MD in 1658. By 1661 he was commissioned a Justice and later sheriff there. In the year 1663, Benois Brassier was naturalized as a former citizen of France and his name Anglicized as Benjamin Brashears but unfortunately he died intestate in the same year. His widow, Mary Brashears, of Clifts, Calvert Co., MD recorded her will on 25 May 1663 as a pre-nuptial contract with Thomas Starling, her second husband, in which she names the children of her deceased husband, Benjamin Brashears (MdHR, Wills, Book 1, pp187-189. Note: By the early 1700s, the Huguenots in Virginia were given land at Manakin Town, VA (see attached historical markers).
     Samuel Brashear, Sr., father of Robert C. Brashear, was the son of Robert Brashear and the grandson of the original immigrant, Benois (Benjamin) Brashear. Samuel married Ann Jones and had extensive land holdings in Maryland. In the 1720s, Samuel Brashear, Sr. and his wife, Ann, made several deeds of gift to their older children. In one such deed: "On 11 Oct 1726, I, Samuel Brashear, Sr., Carpenter, for love of my son, Robert (C.) Brashear, planter, grant him "Brashear's Meadow", 200 acres beginning at a bounded white oak on the east side of Beaverdam Branch (Beaver Dam Creek) of the Eastern Branch of the Potomac near the corner of Laxen's land; if he should marry and his wife outlive him, she to have possession only during her widowhood." (Land Records, PGCo Deeds, BK "M" pp75-77) Two days later Robert C. Brashear married Charity Dowell. The generosity of his father by the land gift a few miles from present day Washington, D.C. got him off to a good start in life at age 21. Robert was given an addition 50 acres, part of the tract called "Orphan's Gift" in his father's will, made and proved in 1740 (Hall of Records, Annapolis, MD, Wills BK "22", pp230-232.) In 1742, after financial difficulties, Robert was arrested for debt and put in debtors prison. He was forced to sell the remainder of his holdings. He and his family moved west across the Potomac River to Truro Parish, Fairfax Co., VA and settled for a few years without owning land. In 1746, Robert sold all that was left of his meager possessions and moved his family to the wilds of North Carolina where he lived most of his adult life in Guilford County.
     Robert died at his long time home, Rocky Springs, Guilford County (present day Rockingham Co., N.C.) There seems to be a published error that Robert C. Brashear and his wife, Charity, are buried in the Brashears-Kries Cemetery, Sugar Grove, Roane County, TN, a distance of over 325 densely forested, mountainous, wilderness miles from their accepted death place. This would seem improbable for the times and their attachment to Guilford County. Both the SAR and the DAR accept the fact that Robert C. Brashear lived in and died in Guilford Co., N. C. The proof of his death and burial in Guilford Co., N. C. was established by testimony in "Phillip Brashears vs. Thomas Hewlett" concerning the lease and ownership of "Brashear's Meadows". Among the depositions from Rockingham Co., N.C. submitted to the Maryland court was one from Peter Dowell, Charity's brother, who testified among other things that Phillip Brashear was the oldest son of Robert C. Brashear. Another deposition was from William Williams who swore he had known Robert C. Brashear for 18 years, that Robert died July, 1786, that he (Williams) "was present and saw him die, and knew him when dead and assisted at the burial". William Williams was enumerated in the 1790 US Census of Rockingham Co., N.C. and his household is shown near Zaza Brashear's household. ( Ref. General Court Judgments, Western Shores (Maryland), Vols. 39, 41, 43, Oct. 1798. Film #013051 LDS Library, SLC).
     Robert C. Brashear of Guilford Co., N. C., though 77 years of age, supported the American Revolution both with money and as a supplier of goods (It has been suggested he may have even supplied the wagon to transport the supplies and driven it himself), during the 1781 Battle of Guilford Courthouse. For this service, he is recognized as a Patriot of the American Revolution by both the SAR and DAR (Ancestor #A013835). (Revolutionary Army Accounts, VIII:94, Folio 2, State of North Carolina, Dept. of Cultural Resources; Colonial Records of North Carolina, IX:807; XVI:116; XIX:76.)
     The children of Robert C. and Charity (Dowell) Brashear were:
     1) Phillip Brashear, b. Brashear's Meadow, Prince Georges Co., MD, d. 1798 Henry Co., VA, m. Ann Wilson
     2) Ann Nancy Brashear, b. 26 Sep 1729 at Brashear's Meadow, Prince Georges Co., MD, d. 30 Nov 1815 Fairfax Co., VA, m. 23 Jun 1745 Moses Ball of Fairfax Co., VA (Reference: Ball Family Bible)

     [quote]In the earliest records of this family Robert identifies himself as a "planter."
     1726 - His father, Samuel Brashear, gives Robert at age twenty-one "for natural love and affection," the 200 acres tract of land known as "Brashear's Meadows." lying on Beaver Dame, and brach of the Eastern Brach of the Potomac River. He was given an additional fifty acres, a part of the tract called "Orphan Gift," in his father's will that was made and proved in 1740.[Back, p. 31]

Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear
arrested for debt in 1742 & spent some time in Prince George's Co. Jail - relieved by an Act of the Maryland Assembly; moved to Truro Parish, Fairfax Co, VA afterwards until ca. 1746

known as Robert BRASEARS, Jr. in PGCo, MD land records to distinguish him from his uncle, Robert BRASHEAR IV, who lived a good part of his life on adjoining land

went with brothers, Basil & Otho, & two of his own sons, Jesse & Robert Samuel, to northeastern Guilford Co., NC by 1753. Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear was also known as Robert Cagers Brashears. GAV-6, GKJ-6.
Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear was mentioned in a land transaction on 11 October 1726 at Brashear's Meadows, Queen Ann Parish, Prince George's Co., Maryland, USA,
Memo: per Brashear 1999:32 "On 11 Oct. 1726, when Robert was twenty-one years old, his father, Samuel Brashear Sr, the Marykland Carpenter, gave him, "for natural love and affection," the 200-acre tract of land known as "Brashear's Meadows." The land was intended to be Robert's separate property; "if he should marry and his wife outlive him, she is to have possession of the property during her widowhood only."2
Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear was mentioned in a land transaction in 1740
Memo: per Brashear 1999:32 "he was given an additional fifty acreas, a part of the tract called "Orphans Gift," in his father's will, which was made and proved in 1740 (Hall of Records, Annapolis, MD, Wills, Book 22, p. 230-2320."2

Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear immigrated in 1742 to Truro Parish, Fairfax Co., Virginia, USA; per Brashear 1999:32 "In 1742, after financial difficulties, he migrated to Truro Parish, Farfax co., VA."2

Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear immigrated between 1746 and 1750 to North Carolina, USA; per Brashear [1999:32 "...about 1746-50, [he moved] to the wilds of North Carolina, where he lived most of his adult life in Orange, Guilford, and Rockingham Counties."2

Robert C. (Cager?) Brashear began military service on 15 March 1781 at Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, Greensboro, Guilford Co., North Carolina, USA, from FindAGrave memorial: "On March 15, 1781, the Battle of Guilford Court House was fought just north of present-day Greensboro between Generals Charles Cornwallis and Nathanael Greene during the American Revolution. This battle marked a key turning point in the Revolutionary War in the South.
     Robert C. Brashear of Guilford Co., N. C., though 77 years of age, supported the American Revolution both with money and as a supplier of goods (It has been suggested he may have even supplied the wagon to transport the supplies and driven it himself), during the 1781 Battle of Guilford Courthouse. For this service, he is recognized as a Patriot of the American Revolution by both the SAR and DAR (Ancestor #A013835)."5

     "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

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

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.
