JH: James and Anne Cathey left Ulster for America, probably ca 1720 or thereabouts. They settled first in Cecil County, Maryland, and later moved to Chester County, Pennsylvania (by 1724).

The first record I have for James is a Cecil County, Maryland deed dated 5 Dec 1724 where James Cathey of Chester Co, PA sold 75 acres to John Hogshead of Cecil Co, MD. I donít know when exactly James acquired this land, but the deed history included in the deed started in 1719, so he must have acquired it between 1719 and 1724.

An article by Bernard Beary, "Garrett Vansweringen And His Family," *Chronicles of St. Mary's,* 29 (May 1981): 1-8 and 29 (June 1981): 4-6, speculates that Zacharias VANSWERINGEN (brother to Elizabeth who married John EVANS and Jacob WILLIAMS) may have had a son Joseph VANSWERINGEN. Both Zacharias and widow Martha (DEVINE) died in 1712. Martha's will referred to "children" but only named daughter Jane. NOK for her inventory were John NELSON, Michael HERBERT, Mary KIRK, and Joseph VANSWERINGEN. He speculates this may be the Joseph who died in 1736, and whose orphans were Thomas, Joseph, and Jane. His next of kin for the inventory in 1737 were Eleanor PEARCE and Mark RODES.

Now, in the 1755, 4th additional account of Joseph VANSWERINGEN (the one who died in 1720, brother to Zacharias and Elizabeth) there were payments to Mark RODES for his mother's part, and as mentioned above, Robert PEARCE for his wife's part.

Could Robert PEARCE's wife Eleanor be VANSWEARINGEN, a daughter of Zachariah, and one of the unnamed children in her mother's will? That would explain their son named Joseph Vanswearingen PEARCE, and Robert's wife (Eleanor) getting a share of the estate of Joseph VANSWERINGEN who died 1720. Then Robert PIERCE's brother John PEARCE/PIERCE married Mary EVANS, daughter of John EVANS and Elizabeth VANSWERINGEN, as listed in the 1749 will of Anne CARMICAL bequests to children of John and Mary PIRCE.

Karel Whyte appears to be one of the most knowledgable researchers I have seen on the VanSWEARINGEN family. I notice on a page at:
http://home.neo.rr.com/thorn/swearingen/main-outline.html
that she lists Zachariah did have a duaghter Ellinor, but I don't know on what basis. I am writing her also to find out. Rick Saunders

I noticed on her page she has on error or incomplete entry. For Joseph Van Swearingen, son of Joseph and Martha Van Swearingen, grandson of Zachariah.

The tradition is to show him married to Eleanor Burn/Byrn. Eleanor was Eleanor Kent, the daughter of Absolam Kent and Elizabeth Ferguson, and the widow of Thomas Byrn.

[MDSTMARY] Birth place of Garrett VanSwearingen
Fredric Z. Saunders

In the Archives of Maryland 2:205
http://www.msa.md.gov/megafile/msa/speccol/sc2900/sc2908/000001/000002/htm l/
am2--205.html
it was given that Garrett Vansweringen [Van Swearingen, etc.] was born in "Reensterdwan" in Holland. I have seen that many people have interpreted this as "Beemsterdam" [a place that doesn't exist] or Beemster [a place that exists in North Holland].

The latest evidence is that Garrett was actually from Rijnsaterwoude in Zuid-Holland [South Holland]. See:
http://genforum.genealogy.com/swearingen/messages/3786.html
He e-mailed a nice 19 page PDF file with copies of documents from Holland from a researcher there. It looks like research is still continuing, and hopefully more details will be found. I think the above is a must for any descendants of this line.

My connection is through Garrett's daughter Elisabeth and her second marriage to Benjamin Williams.

>From what I have seen in published records, it is usually listed that Elisabeth's daughter Mary EVANS married Robert EVANS based on two documents:
1. Elizabeth WILLIAMS in her 1736 will named her daughter Mary PEARCE.
2. The 1755 4th additional account of Joseph VanSWEARIGNEN's estate lists a share paid to Robert PIERCE for his wife's part.

To go along with this, Elise Greenup Jourdan, *Early Families of Southern Maryland,* IV: 109-110, states that Robert PEARCE received the tract *Courtney's Fancy,* from his father Edward PIERCE, and had a son Joseph Vanswearingne PEARCE who wrote his will in 1772 and named his sister Tenesia (is this a misreading of Teresia?, named after another daughter of Garret VANSWERINGEN) and Susannah to have the tract *Courtneys Fancy.*

Mar. 1703/4 - Joseph Venour vs. Anne Harguess alias Reeves, of Charles County, widow. On July 31, 1703, at Portobacco, Anne owed Venour 246 lbs. of tobacco for several medicines (cathartic pills, conserve? of roses, restringent powders, purging pills) she had purchased from him. Not having been paid, Venour brought suit. Anne was summoned to appear at the Jan. 1703/4 Court to answer Venour's claim but came not, the Sheriff returning that said Anne is not found. Anne was then summoned to appear at the Mar. 1703/4 Court but came not, the Sheriff again returning that she is not found.
At the Mar. 1703/4 Court, Venour claimed that the said Anne Harguess alias Reeves, of Charles County, widow, hath eloyned herself out of the jurisdiction of the Court. Venour stated, however, that several persons of the county had property of Anne's in their hands. Venour therefore requested an attachment against said property to the value of 246 lbs. of tobacco plus costs. The Court granted the attachment.
