Source: Maryland Prerogative Court, Testamentary Proceedings, Liber 13, p. 258.

Samuel’s wife is named as Lucy in 1666 and 1668 but she is not named thereafter so we do now know if Lucy died and Samuel remarried.

=== need to proof, looks like a different William Payne

http://www.mastermason.com/dresden/WHO%20WERE%20THEY.htm

WILLIAM PAYNE; Who walked behind Ramsay, (from Smith's history of Virginia) is said to be the son of Sir Robert Payne, who came to America from Yorkshire, Englnd on April 18th 1619 with his two brothers, John and William. On the same ship was Sir George Yardley the first colonial Governor of Virginia. Col. Payne was born in Alexandria, and was one of a committee of safety appointed at a meeting held in the Court House in Alexandria, July 13, 1774 when George Washington was in the chair, and Robert Harrison was Secretary.

At an election for vestrymen of Fairfax Parish, March 28, 1765, William Payne received 304 votes and George Washington 274 votes. The following account appears in the Alexandria Gazette, Aug. 25, 1874; "In 1754 when Washington, in command of the Virginia Rangers was waiting in Alexandria for the arrival of Braddock's Forces, an exciting election contest occured between Mr. Fairfax and Mr. Payne for the House of Burgesses,Washington supported Mr Fairfax with much zeal, and high words passed between Washington an Payne in the Market-square.

Payne struck Washington a blow which brought him to earth, troops rushed in, and would have made short work of Payne had not Washington pacified them, assuring them that he knew the proper course to take. Duels were not then under ban of Public opinion. All supposed that a fight was imminent. Next morning Washington sent for Payne, and when the latter entered the room he saw on the table, not a pair of pistols as he had supposed, but a decanter of wine and two glasses.

"Mr Payne" said Washington,"to err is human. I was wrong yesterday, but if you have had sufficient satisfaction, let us be friends." Weems relates "from that day Washington was Payne's idea of true manhood.

The Magnanimity of Washington will be better understood and appreciated when it is recollected that at that time there was a cloud upon Washington's Powers, as he had been a few months before compelled by the French to capitulate at Fort Necessity, and had as yet done nothing to redeem his fame." Col. William Payne served in the Continental Army under Washington and on Feb 20, 1784 was admitted a member of Alexandria Lodge #39. William Payne died in 1800 just four months after serving as a pall-bearer for George Washington.

=== Research notes from Pamela Pearson

the following deed is not correctly abstracted. It does not say William Davis purchased the land from Henry Roper. It says that Davis sold Roper's Range formerly surveyed and granted to "Henry Roper whose heir at law the said William Davis is...." This William Davis was the eldest son of Clement Davis and Alice Roper (Henry's sister), making this Henry the son of William Roper. I am confident both Henry Roper and Thomas Roper, who warranted the 1,200 a. with Thos Wintersell, were the sons of Wm Roper. Henry's 400 a. share was Roper's Range, while Thomas' 400 a. was Diamond. Wm Davis also sold portions of Diamond in 1723 (PG Co Deed I: 578-579) and 1728 (M: 304-305). Davis even testified in 1754 that his uncle Thomas Roper gave him power of attorney (which I haven't found) to sell Roper's Diamond...etc. (PG Co Deed NN: 281)

Prince George's Land Records 1726-1730 - Liber M, Page 248
Enrolled at request of Alexander Falconar 29 Nov 1727:
Indenture, 4 Oct 1727; Between William Davies, planter, and John Falconar of London, merchant; for £63.3.3; a parcel called Roper's Range containing 400 acres; formerly surveyed for and granted to Henry Roper who sold to Davies; /s/ William Daviss; wit. Jos. Belt, Jere Belt; ack- by William Davies and Mary his wife

Thomas Roper purchased property in Bath County, NC in early 1707 (which became Beaufort Co in 1712). He appears there and in Chowan Co in various records through 1721. There are estate papers for Thomas Roper dtd 1723 accessible via the MARS catalog (website of NC State Archives). An action of debt was brought 4 May 1723 in the Albemarle Court by William Badham, administrator of Thomas' estate. In this same time period, on 23 Mar 1723, William Davis (his nephew) and wife Mary sold part of Thomas' "Diamond" to John Mills. (Prince George's Co, MD Deed I: 578-579) William and Mary sold the remainder of Diamond in Feb 1727/8.

The following is a land record for Thomas ROPER of MD- in Bath, NC. There is another record I can't find right now that I think canceled this one. But it is notable about the DAVIS connection to Roper.

Abner Newman lived in Culpeper, Fauquier and Shenandoah counties. He was pensioned as a private soldier April 9, 1824, as a resident of Shenandoah county, aged 68 years. (See report of Secrtary of War of June, 1834, Pension Establishment of the U.S. for the State of Virginia, page 98.) Abner was sheriff for Shenandoah county. He appears to have removed from Fauquier about 1788, as in this year he records a deed of sale for all his lands in the county. Of the children of Abner Npwman and Hester, flee Mauzy, but little is known; it is believed, however, that with others, William, who married Miss Tucker, in 1804, in Culpeper county; Alexander, who married Peggie Douglass, in 1806, in Rockingham county, and Abner, who married Eliza Cornaga, in 1824, in Culpeper county, were his sons. The dates of his death and that of his wife and children are unknown to the writer. After 1824 he probably removed to Rockingham county with his son Alexander, where he spent the remainder of his life; but owing to
the partial destruction of the records of this county during the Civil War, no further mention has been found of him or his children."

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.-
