The following obituary appeared in the Baltimore Sun on September 6, 1875:

"Colonel Walter Hanson Stone Taylor, a well-known citizen of Charles County, Md., died near Port Tobacco, in that county, on Wednesday last, in the seventieth year of his age. In early life, he was apprenticed in the clerk's office of the county, where he became a remarkably accurate accountant. He afterwards had entire charge for six years of the clerk's office in Prince George's County, from whence he was transferred to the position of chief of the division on claims in the United States treasury, under Peter Hagner, the second auditor. On the breaking out of the war Col. Taylor went south, and he was appointed fifth auditor of the Confederate Government, the duties of which he performed with acceptability until the surrender. After the war he returned to Charles County, and being broken in fortune renewed the labors of his youth, and served for some time in the clerk's office. For the past six months he had been confined to his house by bodily infirmities, and died on Wednesday as stated above. His knowledge of the local history and of the old families of the county was something remarkable".

72403 THE SUNDAY STAR

VOL. 2. The Public Library, Washington, D. C. AUGUST 13, 1916. 19. The Rambler Visits Glymont, an Old Pleasure Resort

Many memories are recalled by the name "Glymont." Though the name survives, nobody dances as the [...] the gallop, the polka, the [...] and the Virginia reel there now. It is one of those places by the side of the Potomac where Washingtonians went to play or idle away some summer hours and which is silent and all but deserted now, but these persons who knew Glymont in its golden days will fancy that the echoes of gap reveals linger there.

The people of the capital went to Glymont on the Mary Washington, the Mattano, the [...], and other steamboats that knew all the channels and shoals, bars and headlands and tides and currents of the Potomac. Thousands of the young men and women who capered to the cadence of the fiddles at Glymont hare passed into the land of shadows, but it is pleasant to think that some times their spirits go again to the ancient playground and dwell for a few moments among the great trees or by the side of the flowing spring However all the people who danced to merry measures and spread their [...] in the shade of the Glymont woods have not yet said farewell to earth. Thousands of silver-haired men and women who first held hands and sighed and told each other the secrets of their hearts at Glymont will see these lines and if the Rambler can lead their thoughts back to those [...] days of simpler joys, and to Glymont, he will be repaid for the labor that these notes cost.

Glymont is [...] there, but the Glymont of the time of which the Rambler is thinking is no more. Steamboats still stop at Old Glymont and at New Glymont, but the leading which is now called Old Glymont was for perhaps a century, or even two centuries, known as Pye's landing. It is up stream from the real Glymont, and that place before the name Glymont came into popular use was called Marbury's landing, or Marour's wharf. That which is now called New Glymont is down stream from the Glymont off tender and romantic memories, about a mile nearer Indian Head, and the landing was established in [...] to the demand of traffic, that section having become quite [...] settled by families from other parts of Maryland and other parts of the world, because of the naval proving ground and the naval powder factory established on the long and irregular neck of land between the Potomac and Mattawoman [...] generally called Indian Head.

The neck is about six mills long and from one to two mills wide. A high and darkly wooded part at the Potomac and of this neck has been called Indian Head, ever [...] white men found Indians there, but the name "Indian Head" has now come to be applied to several squire miles of territory. New houses are closely placed along the roads that lead up and down the neck east and west and across it north and south and all the dwellers in those houses will tell you that the live at Indian Head.

The wharf, or what was the wharf, [...] is a pathetic ruin. [...] held their disfigured heads [...] water, but all the [...] the planking vanishes long [...] the [...] bust follow soon. When the Rambler left the little steamboat at Pye's wharf he walked west along the shore perhaps a fifth or a quarter of a mile to the landing which was Marbury's wharf. Though there are stretches of the shore which are sandy and where the grandfathers and grandmothers of many lively Washingtonians went in bathing, the shore from Pye's wharf to the ruined Glymont pier is covered with large water-worn stones.

Near Old Glymont the bluff recedes from the river, leaving a small patch of low ground, green with tall grass and boggy from the stream that flows out of the well known spring. That spring, close to the rotting timbers of the pavilion, is walled around with stone, something like a well, and the constant overflow rushes along a trough formed by two planks. The spring is under the shade of several old trees, and close by the side of a steep and stony road which leads from the river shore to the top of the bluff, there connecting with a picturesque road appropriately called Cedar lane, which leads over wide stretches of level and tolerably fertile land that for many generations was tilled by the slaves of the Pye and Marbury families, but which today is in possession of later settlers. The road, which follows a ravine that cuts through the bluff, bears little traffic now, though once it bore a heavy burden. Once, mail coaches traveled there, the mail being carried from Washington to Glymont by steamer, there being taken on stages for distribution through a large part of southern Maryland. The stages carried passengers as well as mail.

The wreck of the pavilion is there. The roof has fallen in and much of the flooring has collapsed, and even where it has not collapsed it is so feeble and shaky from decay that one sets foot upon it with misgiving. Scattered through the underbush that has grown up around the pavilion are the flying horses, their wooden carcasses paintless and weather beaten. These poor things were once gay steels that scampered and caracoled, bearing little boys and little girls whose children now have little girls and little boys. The planking of the pavilion floor creaked and swayed as the Rambler walked across it, and beside the creaking of the floor the only sounds that fell upon the ear were the busy chatter of a pair of catbirds in the tangle, and the soft purr of the river as the incoming tide forced tiny waves to ripple on the shore. It seemed especially drear and lonesome. There is no lonesomeness in the deepest woods or the widest fields, but in this deserted place, where so many mortals once made merry, the air was cerie.

Following the little traveled road from the Glymont runs to Cedar lane and thence into the main highway, which runs east and west along the "neck." The Rambler came to that church which officially is St. Charles' Catholic Church, but which is affectionately known to everybody in southern Maryland as "The Neck Church." A new frame building stands there and the unstained marble corner stone tells that it was set on August 4, 1913. Close by, bricks hidden under weeds and a growth of young oaks tell where the older St. Charles Church stood for about 140 years. Around the new church and the foundation of the old building are a few acres of land, where stand old and monster oaks, and these acres have swallowed thousands of the people of that neighborhood, generation after generation. A few old tombstones stand and the Rambler jotted down the following epitaphs.

Edward Joseph's Pye [...] February 6, 1767, died January 2, 1801. The [...] of four children.

In memory of William F Pye, who departed this life February 12, 1838, aged forty years. May the rest in peace.

In memory of John A. Pye, who departed this life October 25, 1853, aged fifty-four years. May the rest in peace.

In memory of Caroline E. Pye, who departed this life June 16, 1856, aged fifty-six years. May she rest in peace.

In memory of Edward E. Pye, who departed this life December 16, 1854, aged twenty-eight years. May he rest in peace.

In memory of Sarah Pye, who departed this life October 6, 1830, aged sixty-nine years. May the rest in peace.

In memory of Charles Pye, who departed this life October 16, 1800, aged forty-eight years. May he rest is peace.

The Rambler read the epitaphs of Henry Stonestreet, who died on the 29th of January, 1812, aged sixty years, James Jameson, the second son of Walter Jameson, who died the fifth day of November, 1822, aged twenty-eight years Walter Jameson, who died March 12, 1814, aged fifty-four years. Theresa Jameson, who died July 15, 1812, "In the forty-seventh year of her age the mother of twelve children five sons and seven daughters": Catharine, the consort of Patrick C. Murray, who died August 23, 1820, in the twenty-ninth year of her age; Valincia Ann Kendrick, who was born December 30 1780, and died December 30, 1818; Edward Miles, who was born in 1804, and died in 1821; Cecelia A. Miles, wife of Edward Miles, who was born May 30, 1815, and died September 9, 1874; Margaret J., beloved wife of E. H. Brawner, who died in 1830; Thaddeus Brawer, born January 19, 1829, and died October 8, 1852, and Mary J., consort of Thaddeus Brawner, "who departed this life September 16, 1851, aged twenty-three years."

On old stones in this country churchyard one may read the names of John W. Waring, jr.: Mary J., wife of John W. Waring and daughter of Dr. Edward Miles: Benjamin F. Dement; Mary E. daughter of Benjamin F. and Mary Starbuck Dement; Nell J. Mclntyre, and tombs of the families Ashbury, Jenkins, Morris and Knott.

The Rambler searched for the tombs of the Marburys, but without avail. No doubt their graves are on one of the several Marbury farms in that neighborhood.

Before the Rambler tells what he knows of the Marbury's of Glymont he will record such facts as he has gathered concerning the Pye family, which, like the Marbury family, long prominent and influential in that section of Charles county, has disappeared from that locality.

It is uncertain when the first Pye came to southern Maryland, but there was a George Pye in the province in 1642. He was one of a jury consisting of David Whitcliff, Arthur Le Hay Robert Kedger, Robert Nichols, William Asiter, William Hardige, William Hookins and Gerald Ford, which tried a man named John Elkin for the murder of an Indian. The jury acquitted Elkin. Pye created something of a scandal during the judge's charge to the jury, and one may read in the old records:

John Lewger, on behalf of the the lord proprietary, informeth against George Pye for that is public court the 6th of February last the court importunely pressing and charging the jury that were upon the trial of John Elkin to proceed according to their evidence and one science, and [...] and pleading the crime against the prisoner at the bur, the sold George Pye is an insolent manner [...] and reproached the whole court is these or like words, vts., that if on Englishman had been killed by the Indians there would not have been so much words about it, or to that effort, to the great contempt and scandal of the court and ill example to others.

George Pye was fined a certain weight of tobacco, and in the same year, 1642, there was an execution against him to deliver a thousand pounds of tobacco to John Hollis "for the Lord's was." Whether this execution had any connection with the contempt of court case the Rambler does not know. In 1684 there was an Edward Pye in that part of Maryland who must have been a man of prominence, because in association with Vincent Lowe, Henry Barnail, William Digges, Wiliam Burgass, Nicholas Sewell, Clement Hill, Henry Coursey and Henry Lowe, he was appointed, 1684-1688, a member of the commission named by the third Lord Baltimore to serve as a council for the government of his (Charles, Third Lord Baltimore's) infant son, Benedict Leonard Calvert.

In the will of Edward Digges of Prince Georges county, probated in 1714. In which he makes bequests to his son John, daughter Eliza, sister Mary, sister Darnail, brothers No. [...] Rozer, Charles, William, John and [...] nephews Henry and Edward [...] and to Francis Hall, William Hunter and Robert Brooke, priests, he wrote "In the event of there remaining any claim for lands, Negroes, stock, etc., bought from Cousin Charles Pye, said claim to be placed against another William Digges and heirs, for whose use said purchases were made.

A census of Charles county was taken in 1775-78, and that part of the census for Pamonkey hundred, in which Glymont is, being recorded by Constable W. McPherson, shows the following residents of that hundred:

Walter Pye, Henry Marbury William Marbury, Benjamin Athey, Basil Basil Reaweer, Ralph Bateman, James Briscoe, Richard Brandt, Sarusel, Walmer and Leonard Clements, Richard Cox, John Dent and George Dent of John, Charles Clement, Benjamin Dawson, Benjamin Fendall, William Hamilton. William Jenkins, William Lee John. Thomas and T. Hanson Marshall, Horatio Middleton, James Parmer, William Paggett, Henry Queen, John Smallwood, Thomas Smallwood, [...] and Thomas Smallwood, jr.: Prior Smallwood, Bayne Smallwood, Hezekiah Smallwood, Jowise Smoot John Stone, Henry Speake, Richard and Zacharish Wade, John Williams George Thomas and about a score of [...]

Of the early Marburys the Rambler is indebted for most of his information to Walter Worthington Bowie of Washington, author of an elaborate genealogical and biographical history of "The Bowies and Their Kindred." Mr. Bowle says of the Marbury family that it is an exceedingly ancient one and is mentioned in works of heraldry as located in Chestershire England as early as the reign of Edward the First. Marbury Hall, in that county, about fifteen miles from the city of Chester, says Mr. Bowie, was owned by a branch of the family until some time in the present century. It has recently been bought by a member of parliament.

"A few years ago." writes Mr. Bowie, "gentlemen residing in the neighborhood of the hall started a subscription for the purpose of repairing the ancient chapel. The coat of arms borne by the Marburys displayed a crusader's cross, and under it a mailed hand grasping the severed head of a Saracep. Doubtless the knight who first assumed this design had fought under the cross in Palestine, and thus commemorated his victory over some noted paynim warrior. The exact date of the emigration to Maryland by the first representative of the house in America is unknown, but it was probably between 1680 and 1690. The name does not appear on any of the coloned records prior to that era."

The first of the Marburys of record in Maryland was Francis Marbury, who settled in Prince Georges County, near Piscataway. In 1693, Mr. Bowie has found, he received a deed for a tract of land on Piscataway creek, fifteen relies below Washington, which [...] he called "Carrolls Kindness." In 1698 he was granted a second tract of land on the same creek, adjoining the property of John Fendall, which he named Marburys Chance. He is mentioned as one of the land commissioners for Prince Georges county and judge of a survey in Charles county. He was twice married, but the maiden name of his first wife is unkown. Her Christian name was Mary and she died September 11, 1713. She bore him six children. His second wife was Frances Herd had the marriage took place at St. John's Church, Piscataway, September 14, 1714. There were also six children by the second marriage.

Large tracts of this Marbury land in the Piscataway neighborhood are still in possession of the descendants of the first settler. Dr. Charles Claggett Marbury of Washington is a descendant of the first Marbury, being a son of Fendall Marbury, who was a son of William I. Marbury, who was a son of William Marbury, was a son of Col. Luke Marbury, who was a son of Luke Marbury, [...] who was a son of Francis Marbury, the emigrant. There are a number of Marburys in Washington, among them being B. F. Marbury, Mrs. Clara F. Marbury, Miss Mary H. Marbury, Dr. William B. Marbury, James W. Marbury, Juliet M. Marbury, Leonard Marbury, Somervell Marbury and W. Henry Marbury. Ogle Marbury and the Misses Marbury live at Laurel and A. Marshall Marbury lives at Upper Marlboro.

The owner of the Glymont farm—and he is recalled by all old residents of the neighborhood—was Capt. Leonard Marbury. The property descended to his children, Addison Marbury and Miss Ella Marbury. They are both dead and people new to the neighborhood are living in Miss Ella's old home. The holdings of the Pyes and Marburys in the Glymont neighborhood were divided and sold from time to time, and the site of the old Glymont resort has passed through many proprietors. Sigel Brown of Glymont being the present owner.

One of the few things which have excited Glymont was that which may be found related in the Rebellion Records under the head of "Affair at the Mouth of Mattawoman Creek." On November 14, 1861. Brig. Gen. Joseph Hooker, from the headquarters of Hooker's Division, at Camp Baker, on the lower Potomac, made the following report to Brig. Gen. S. Williams, adjutant general of the Army of the Potomac:

The right of my camp was enlivened today by a spirited contest for a prize in the shape of a schooner freighted with wood. She had attempted to ascend the river under easy sail, when the wind failed her opposite the mouth of Mantawoman creek. Her condition was soon remarked to the rebels and at once a light battery was drawn up at Cockpit point and opened a brisk tire on her. This alarmed the crew and they doused anchor and made for our shore. As soon as this was communicated to me I directed Lieut. Col. Wells to proceed to the point of interest with a battalion of the lot Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteers, and for Lieut. Col. Getty to dispatch a section of his battery to persent any effort on the part of the rebels to capture the vessel. Both of these commands literally flew to their positions, but did not reach them until after the rebels had boarded the schooner and set fire to her. A few of the infantry immediately manned a small boat at hand, boarded the schooner, extinguished the fire and then "up anchor" and towed her beyond the reach of danger.

I am informed by those who witnessed this exploit—and there were many spectators on both [...] of the Potomac that it was executed with an air of true heroism. Those engaged with the battery are no less deserving of my [...]. Of itself it is an affair of no importance; its an expression of the feeling animating our troops it is full of significance.

Lieut. Adelbert Ames commanded the artillery, Gen. Hooker in one of his reports from Camp Baker mentions an observation balloon, though the date of the report was in the autumn of 1861. He says: "The weather is unfavorable for the ascension of the balloon. It is now in the vicinity of the Posey house."

One of the oldest of the settlers in the Glymont neighborhood is John S. Waring, whose family goes back to Capt. Sampson Waring of the Cliffs," who before 1650 had received grants for various tracts of lands in Charles and Prince Georges counties. He is still keeping store where he has kept it for many years. He married a daughter of Dr. Compton of Charles county. Life is full of coincidences and here is one. The Rambler remembers clearly that one of the [...] of the country near Washington and which was treated of at [...] by the Washington papers, was the murder of a clerk names John W. [...] in Waring's stove near Glymont on Tuesday, July 11, 1876. The Rambler met on the boat going down to Glymont a middle-aged colored man and asked him if he remembered the murder. "Yes." the man said: "I saw two men hanged for that murder. They were Martin Henry and Charles Simpson. They were hanged at Port Tobacco. I was just a boy, but I have never been able to get away from the memory of that sight."

It would take a long record to give the names of the churches and Sunday schools and fraternal and benevolent societies and social organizations which used to give excursions to Glymont. The Fourth of July was always a big day. The Rambler recalls that there used to be rifle matches there between the marksmen of Washington, and September 2, 1875. There was a contest between the Irish rifle team of Alexandria and the American [...] team of Washington. They went down on the Pilot Boy. The members of the Alexandria team were James Smith. George Schafer, R. Kincheloe, [...] W. Waterman, G. A. Sampson. [...] Calmus, M. Reuten and U. Prush. The Washington riflemen were Robert Van Zandt, O. G. Saffield, T. F. Wilson, G. P. Austin, U. W. Sebastian, G. Hess, C. Snyder and High Coyle. William Burroughs was the judge and George Smith and W. C. Brennan of Alexandria were the referees.

Here is one of the later Glymont advertisements, which will have a familiar sound to many persons.

July 4, 1876, The glorious Fourth of July will be celebrate to magnificent style at that popular resort, Glymont on the Potomac. Music has been engaged for those who wish to trip the light fantastic to in the cool and shaded pavilions. A fine restaurant and bar well supplied with the [...] of everything will be found. Within the past few days bathing house and bathing dresses [...] and gentlemen have been attached to this resort. The fast sailing steamer John W. Thompson will make three trips, leaving her wharf at the foot of 6th street at 8 a.m. [...] and 5 p.m. There will be an ample police force on the grounds and the beat of order will be maintained during the day.

The John W. Thompson was then a new steamer. She had been launched in 1875 at the yard of Messrs. Wood. Dialogue & Co., Kaigns Point, Camden, N. J. She was built for the Inland and Seaboard Coasting Company, which had been chartered by Congress in 1874. John W. Thompson was the president of the company and Samuel Bacon the vice president. The steamboat John W. Thompson remained on the Potomac a [...] many years, and the memory of the Rambler is that about fifteen years ago she appeared under the name of the Harry Randall and later as the Capital City. But the Mary Washington was the particular Glymont steamboat. In 1875 she was advertised as "The [...], safe and commodious steamer, Mary Washington."

Thomas Heath appears twice in the records of Northumberland
County, Virginia. On January 20, 1687, he sued John
Flowers and in February, 1687, Richard Hull brought suit against
Thomas Heath. Thomas Heath's widow, Mary (who was probably
not his first wife) married Captain William Lee and after
Captain Lee's death married Bartholomew Schreever.* A court
record of September 16, 1696, designates her as Mary Schreever,
formerly Heath, executrix of Captain William Lee.
I. Thomas Heath,1 of Northumberland County, who died before 1690, had issue (so it would seem from the Northumberland County Order and Will Books):
2. William
3. Samuel
4. Thomuas,
5. Peter,
6. Elizabeth and possibly
7. a daughter who married John Curtis.
On January 20, 1709, Colonel Richard Lee moved the Court that the Sheriff summon Mary Schreever, Samuel Heath, Thomas Heath, John Burne and John Curtis to appear and answer certain questions in Lee's behalf.

William Heath2 (Thomas1) was appointed constable for the Upper Parts of Wicomicoa Parish May 18, I717. He married probably Ann Ball, daughter of Captain George Ball. On May 20, 1719, Ann Heath, relict of William Heath made oath that the said William Heath made no will and she was admitted administrator of his estate.

3. Samuel Heath2 (Thomas1) was sub-sheriff in Northumberland in 1712 and Justice of the Peace for several years. He married Ann, daughter of James and Elizabeth Johnson (WILLIAM AND MARY QUARTERLY). The will of Samuel Heath was proved March I8, I730, but the will book in which it was recorded is missing. His executors were Captain William Eustace and Colonel Thomas Lee.
Samuel Heath had four daughters:
Elizabeth Heath, she married first, about I737, Charles Jones (son of Captain William and Leanna (Lee) Jones); secondly, Henry Miller.
Mary Heath married first, March 12, 1739, Thomas (son of John) Pope; secondly, William Tebbs.
mm Note: John Pope d 1723 did not name a son Thomas)
Mary Heath chose Charles Jones as her guardian in June,
1737, Judith (daughter of Samuel) Heath chose Thomas
Pope as her guardian. July 9, 1739, Thomas Pope and
George Conway sue for a division of Samuel Heath's
estate. On June 14, 1743, Mary Pope made a deed to
George Oldham for 1/4 part of a water mill left her by her
father Samuel Heath, which formerly belonged to
Bartholmew Schreever. In 1748/9, William Tebbs and
Mary, his wife, daughter of Samuel Heath, gave a deed to
land granted to orphans of John Dennis which was patented September, I699.

72412 The Thomas Hatton who married Elizabeth Hanson/Hynson. to my knowledge only had a son Thomas Hatton who married Susanna Blackiston who was married previously to John Attaway.

Although Tercentary History states that William Combs married as one of his wifes a Mary Hatton, Combs Researchers have found no proof of parentage of this Mary Hatton, which some have claimed was the daughter of Thomas Hatton and Susanna Blackistone.

I believe the will of this Thomas Hatton only mentions a daughter Elizabeth, but it's possible her name was Mary Elizabeth Hatton.

Cornelius Manning married an Elizabeth Hatton, and the William Combs in question is supposed to have married the same women, which I believe was one of his wifes.

William Combs married supposedly 3 times. One of his wifes was the mother of three children. Enoch,Eleanor, and Mary Combs, The others I beleive were from Elizabeth Hatton the daughter of Thomas Hatton and Susanna Blackistone.

1730-1742 Philip COOMES of St. Mary's County is born to William and Mary HATTON Combs, Sr. William COMBS, Sr., born ca 1667, is thought to have been the son of Enoch and Barbary COMBS, Sr. who came to Maryland by 1665, possibly from Lancaster County, Virginia (parent county of Old Rappa). Phillip was their youngest son, Enoch, their eldest.

Purleigh, County Essex, Clerk,"(*) and stated that in July, 1632, he was indebted to one John Browne of Oxford to the amount of 69 18s. 5d., and for security had given an obligation to pay 140 in case of his failure to meet the obligation of 69 when due. Also the bill recites that before he went upon the aforesaid journey he had purchased the interest of a Mr. Parr in a furnished chamber in Brasenose College, which the said Parr and Mr. Atherton Burch had fitted up at an expense of 40, and that when he, the complainant, purchased Parr's interest therein he expended 15 additional. Burch died during the complainant's absence on a long journey, whereupon, the defendant, John Browne, taking advantage of the absence of Lawrence, removed from the apartment the furnishings on the pretense that Burch was indebted to him, taking Washington's personal property also. The latter's suit is to recover the value of the furnishings above the balance due on his original obligation to Browne,! the completion of the original agreement by the plaintiff having been interfered with by the defendant's unwarranted removal of the property of the plaintiff and failure to come to an adjustment. The defendant acknowledged in his reply that he had been paid in cash 40 in May, 1633, and 10, in May, 1636, on the original obligation of 69. The result of the suit is not stated in the bundle of documents. Its value, historically, is in showing that its reference to the time of the removal of Lawrence14 Washington, M.A., from Oxford, corresponds with his entering upon the cure of souls at

(*) Cleric--clergyman.

Purleigh, on March 14, 1632/3, for the defendant John Browne in his rejoinder refers to the date of the agreement, July 20, 1632, and adds "and shortly after the complainant left his fellowship and abode in the University of Oxon." His friend, Baron Robert Spencer, had died about 1627, and it was not usual for a Fellow at college to save money for a marriage that was not contemplated in the terms of his fellowship.

It is evident that the young gentleman, Lawrence Washington, was dependent upon his own resources when he married, and that the increase in his expenses caused by the birth of a son, entitled him to the two things that he received: first, a position affording him a larger income and an independent home; second, the full consideration of his merits and requirements by the authorities of the college, and in recognition, within the limits of the official precedent, of his ten years of service to Brasenose College as an educator. The further and final honor was paid to him in March, 1633/4, following his resignation of his fellowship in the preceding November, by the issuing of a "Grace" or letter by the authorities of Brasenose College to their superiors of the University of Oxford, approving the conferring of the degree of Bachelor of Divinity on the Rev. Lawrence14 Washington, rector of the church of All Saints, Purleigh, Essex. On the preceding July 6, 1633, he decided, af! ter surveying the tithes due to his church, that certain tithes of Purleigh Wood, then in the tenure of Sir Henry Mildmay, Knight, were due. Consequently on that date he brought suit against that gentleman, in which he is described

72425 The Wiatt Family of Virginia, by Alexander Lloyd Wiatt, page 23.
He was a merchant in Gloucester and Prince William Counties where he went to live in 1767, as he stated in his suit "Wiatt vs Buckner". The date of his return to Gloucester Co. is unknown. He must have lived in Prince William County for at least 30 years because after the death of Dr. John Graham in 1796, John Wiatt held land in trust in Prince William County for Elizabeth Graham and her children, including Mary. Mary was the wife of John's son William Edward Wiatt.
John Wiatt's military record shows that during the Revolutionary War he joined Capt. Jonathan Clark's company of the 8th Regiment of Virginia Forces of Foot commanded by Col. Abraham Bowman at Valley Forge on May 14, 1778. His pay was $6.67 a month. Joh Wiatt remained in Capt. Clark's Company until June 1778, when he transfered to Capt. Abraham Kirkpactrick's Company of the 4th, 8th and 12th Virginia Regiments of Foot commanded by Col. James Wood at Camp Paramus. He is found on company muster and payrolls in Capt. Kirkpatrick's Company at Camps Paramus, White Plains and Robinson's Farm. In October 1778 John Wiatt shows up in Lt. Col. Robert Ballard's Company of the 4th Virginia Regiment of Foot commanded by Col. John Nevill at Middlebrook and remains on the company muster and payrolls until he was given a furlough to Virginia In December 1778 until April 15, 1779. He did not return to the above companies and was supposed later to have been in the command of General Scott "to the South." The records do not memtion him again even through the end of the war was nearly two years away. It is believed that his title "Captain" refers to his rank in the Virginia Militia. John's full name is believed by many family members to have been John Edward Wiatt, Jr.

P. 152, Deposition of Abraham Simpson (taken at house of James Cockrill at Cross Plains (now Athens), Fayette County, Kentucky, on April 17, 1815): Thomas Franks, son of Robert Franks, deceased, will be 25 years of age on 10th of May or June Next. Robert Franks deceased put George Sharp in possession of land before making his will. Robert Frank had built a saw mill and hemp mill on Hoffman’s fork of Boone’s creek and ran it two or three years before his death. (Boone's Creek is the same as Bowman Creek - name was changed to Boone after Edward Boone was killed there. After that people used both Bowman and Boone Creek as the name.) Contributed by David Brown

At sale Francis Simpson and John Frank were the purchasers. They left the land, when it was found the administrator had no right to sell same, because the mill seat belonged to George Sharp. There was (another) sale of mill seat and hemp mill and John Laughlin was purchaser.

A8:49. (See A7:25). Will of George Hardesty, Calvert County, Md., 1688, 1694: Sons George; Thomas (A7:25), second son; Benjamin; Joshua; and Caleb; daughter Cecilia; wife Cecilia. (263v2p85) Land records indicate that George Hardesty obtained land in Calvert County, Md., as early as 1649. (261v7-10Sect.34Folio411) In 1657 his land lay next to that of Henry Pope on Patuxentt river. (Ibidp15 Sect.25) He apparently came first to Virginia, then to Maryland. (226v1p213)

The origin of the name Hardesty is given as follows: "Hardisty, Hardesty, Hardistry.-Local, 'of Hardolfsty, i.e., the sty of Hardolf, Hardolf being the personal name of the original settler.. A sty was 'a pen, enclosure, cabin,' generally for cattle.. The Hardistys hail from the parish of Fewston, seven miles from Otley (England). The name is still familiar there, and Hardisty Hill is a spot there. The Hardistys (chiefly farmers) have probably not moved from their home for six centuries. Johannes de Hardolfsty, 1379; Stephanus de Hardolfsty, 1379.. The little stock has ramified well." (264p359)
