Nathaniel Wickham married Priscilla Tyler, daughter of Robert and Mary Tyler. Along with Samuel Pottenger, husband of Priscilla's sister Elizabeth, Nathaniel bought two large tracts of land in Montgomery County, Maryland. These were only two of many land purchases Nathaniel made.
===
He was active in the politics of Maryland, working as a surveyor, Justice of the court, and Colonel in the Militia. In 1748 he was appointed with Thomas Beaty, Joseph Ogle, William Griffin, Edward Spriggs, John Kimble, and William Tanneyhill as commissioner to buy land for a courthouse and prison in Frederickstown, Maryland. Later he was included in the list of military commissions sent to Annapolis. Sovernor Sharp instructed Wickham to regulate the militia of his county. However, four months later, Nathaniel was in debtor's prison along with Michael Resiner, Samuel DuVal, George Baker, Joseph Luxenbuerger, John Turnbul, and John Campbell. Apparently his land speculations did not pay off and his debts caught up with him. Maryland was in a general depression. The jails overflowed with debtors according to a declaration of the Maryland Assembly. Ironically, Nathaniel Wickham was imprisoned in the very prison he was commissioned to build.

On June 10, 1761 Nathaniel Wickham petitioned the Maryland Assembly in a statement that "for five years and eight months a languishing prisioner in the jail of Frederick County for debt and divers sums of tobacco which said debt by reasons of divers losses and misfortunes he was before his confinement unable to pay." He added that he had tried to pay his debts by assigning his property to his creditors who had rejected his offers. He stated he had never knowingly tried to defraud his creditors

Mar. 1691/2 - Charles Shepherd and Damaris his wife vs. George Brett, of Charles Co., planter, and Elizabeth his wife. Charles and Damaris allege that on Oct. 3, 1691 at Mattawoman in Charles Co., Elizabeth slandered Damaris before "several" [unnamed] persons. Specifically, it was alleged that Elizabeth called Damaris "an old satchell arse bastard bearing bitch whore," refered to Damrais' natural borne daughter who is the wife of John Gray [that is, the former Ann Ward] as a bastard, and made "several such like scandalous and malicious expressions." It was alleged that these statements by Elizabeth were false, maliciously made and were designed to injure Damaris' reputation (which it was alleged had been good), to cause her to be forsaken by her husband and were accusations that she had committed crimes (against fornication and adultery) against the laws of Maryland. Charles and Damaris sought damages of 5000 lbs. of tobacco for Elizabeth's defamation. At the Court of Jan. 12, 1691/2, George and Elizabeth were granted a continuaton of the case to the Court of March 8, 1691/2. At the latter Court, "ye said Charles Shepherd being dead ye said action is abated by occasion of ye death of ye said Charles."

Mar. 1692/3 - Richard Boughton, lately Clerk of Charles Co. vs. William Sarjeant and Damaris his wife, executrix of Charles Shepherd, deceased. Boughton alleged that in June 1689 Charles Shepherd was indebted to him for Clerk's fees in the amount of 1178 lbs. of tobacco and, Shepherd now being deceased, he brings suit against William and Damaris as his executrix. William and Damaris were summoned to appear at the Nov. 1692 Court, which they did, requesting imparlance to the Jan. 1692/3 Court, and at the latter Court to the Mar. 1692/3 court. At the Mar. 1692/3 Court William and Damaris denied that Shepherd owed Boughton the 1178 lbs. of tobacco or any part thereof during his lifetime. The parties put on their cases and after hearing the evidence the Court ordered that Boughton's writ be quashed, that he take nothing and that William and Damaris recover against him 190 lbs. of tobacco for their costs and charges.

Carpenter was summoned to the June 1693 Court to show cause why Sarjeant should not have execution on the judgment. At the June 1693 Court the case was continued to the Aug. 1693 Court at which latter court Carpenter offered no defense. The Court ordered that Sarjeant have execution against Carpenter for the 1181 lbs. of tobacco, plus 132 lbs. of tobacco for his costs and charges.

CATONSVILLE PIONEERS OF THE LUTHERAN FAITH.
By George C. Keidel, Ph.D., Library of Congress.
Catonsville is the name most widely applied to the southwestern corner of Baltimore County, Maryland, although there are no precise limits to its territory. It was settled in Colonial times chiefly by Englishspeaking people, but shortly after the year 1830 there was a considerable influx of German emigrants to the neighborhood. One of the earliest of these was Mr. Johann Kolb (Apr. 15, 1814- Dec. 16, 1897)·, who removed about the year 1835 to the section of Catonsville now known as Harlem Lane when the whole region was a mere wilderness. When the first German settlers arrived the locality was doubtless already known as Catonsville, so named after Richard Caton (1763-1845) and his wife Mary (familiarly known as "Polly") Carroll (1770-1846), daughter of the celebrated Signer Charles Carroll of Carrollton (17371832), who were married at Annapolis on Nov. 25, 1787" and who apparently shortly afterward took up their residence in the mansion known as Castle Thunder. The village of Catonsville seems then to have slowly grown up around their home, which thus served as its nucleus. On Sept. 30, 1849, there was organized a Lutheran congregation from members of the German colony widely scattered in Baltimore, Howard and Anne Arundel Counties near the point of their junction. A site for a church was soon after selected on Ingleside Avenue about a mile north of the famous old Caton residence, and a burying-ground begun by the side of the new stone edifice in the Gothic style completed the next year.-

JAMES SMOOT

The first mention in public records of James Smoot, son of Thomas and Jane (Batten) Smoot, was in November 1681, when he received 230 pounds of tobacco for the performance of some public act, believed to be for service in one of the early Indian wars. Inasmuch as he was of sufficient age to bear arms in 1681, he was apparently born prior to 1665. On April 15, 1687, he patented 160 acres of "Smoot's Chance", lying in Charles County. On February 21, 1689, at Port Tobacco he contracted a debt of 800 pounds of tobacco with Edward Ford; in 1693 he was named as an heir in the will of James Lambert. He, however, died or left the county shortly afterwards, for about 1694 Edward Ford appointed William Stone his attorney to collect the debt of James Smoot, at which time the latter is referred to as late of Charles County. No further record of him exists or neither a marriage nor children have been proved. His land "Smoot's Chance" was later held by John Wilder and John Baptist Boarman.
