17 Aug 1690, From Charles Shepherd to Henry Ward, youngest son of John Ward, dec'd, a slave. Mentions Catherine Ward, youngest dau of aforsaid John Ward (Ct & Land R#1.332)

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.
Source: Charles Co., Md. Circuit Court, Liber S, pp. 75-6.

Serjeant alleges that in Nov. 1691 Shepherd recovered a judgment against Carpenter in the sum of 1181 lbs. of tobacco, that Shepherd is now dead, that Sarjeant was appointed his administrator on Feb. 16, 1692/3 and that the judgment was never executed on. 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.

=== 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.

=== Research notes from Rob

Edward died in 1802 in Washington County, KY, where he left a will that was not probated until 1815. He wrote the will in 1801 and we learn that he died in 1802 from his wife's Rev. War pension application filed many years later. His wife, Teresa Dyer, died 21 Oct 1840 in Washington County, and based on her gravestone, I placed her birth as circa 1757 (https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/107692059/teresa-smith). They were married circa May 1783 in PG County, which if memory serves also came from her pension application.

Edward made his will August 11, 1811 and it was probated Dec. 11, 1815 and filed in Will Book #B, page 469. In his will Edward M. names as legatees, his wife Teresa and these children: Patrick, Thomas Horatio, Michael, Daniel, George, Francis Lloyd, John and Ley (Levi J.) Smith. He made his wife his executrix and Edward Clarkson and Basil Montgomery were the subscribing witnesses.

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."

In the name of God Amen--I Henry Washington of Stafford County being sick and weak in body, but of perfect and sound memory thanks to Almighty God for the same, and considering the shortness of human life do make and ordain, this my last will and testament in manner & form as follows. I give & bequeath my soul unto the Almighty God that gave it hoping for the remission of my sins through the merits of Jesus Christ, my blessed redeemer, and my body to the earth to be decently buried, at the discretion of my Excrs--hereafter mentioned. And as for what estate it has been pleased God to bestow upon me,
I give & bequeath in the following manner.
Item--I give and bequeath to my Grandson Lawrence Washington all my land in Mattox--together with the following negroes namely [names omitted] but if the said Lawrence Washington should die without heirs lawfully begotten of his body or before he arrives at the age of twenty one years, then the said slaves to be equally divided between my sons John Washington & Baily Washington, & their heirs, and my land before given unto Law(???)

I give and bequeath unto my son Baily Washington all my land at Aquia with the other moiety of the negroes not already given away, and in consideration of the work of two slaves left the said Baily by his Grand mother, since her death, I give unto him Fifty pounds to be paid out of my estate not already given away, and if the said Baily, shall not think the above fifty pounds sufficient for the work of the said slaves, but that Lawrence m. a widow with three daughters, one of whom d. 1698-9, leaving 4 or 5 children. The other two were alive and married 1699. By his 2d mar. Lawrence had a daughter, who d. very young. John was his youngest child. In 1699 he was m. and had had three sons and one dau., but had buried his dau, and one son. Mrs. Lawrence W. m. (III.) (???), who spent all her estate. Mr. W. speaks also of his aunt Howard, who had rec'd a letter from Mary Gibson, and who d. about a year and a half before shall issue suit against my son John' & Grandson Lawrence, then it is my desire that two negroes of the moiety allotted to him the said Baily between the age of twelve & forty years together with the said fifty pounds shall be divided between my son John & Grandson Lawrence. It is my will and desire that my Excrs--or my son John Washington when he comes to the age of twenty one years shall buy two slaves, a boy & a girl between the age of twelve & Eighteen years out of the estate of the aforesaid John & Baily for the use of my Daughter in law Eliza Washington during her natural life and afterwards that the said negro Boy and girl, with her increase revert un! to my Grandson Lawrence Washington and likewise that the said Eliza Washington shall have two full shares of the crop made at Mattox annually paid her until the said slaves be purchased, the clothing working tools, levys and provision be deducted, and if the said Lawrence should die before he arrives at twenty one years of age, or without heirs lawfully begotten of his body then the said negroes with their increase to be equally divided between my sons John & Baily & their heirs.
It is my will & desire, that my Excrs shall settle a quarter on the Aquia land soon as they can, the expense of which to be paid out of the money left to my sons John & Baily, that my son John when he arrives at the age of twenty one years shall build or cause to be built on the land at Aquia a dwelling house and Kitchen with other convenient out houses equal to the buildings on the plantation where I now live the expense to be equally paid out of the estate left to them, the said John & Baily & that the benefit of the carpenter work I have left to go in with! the expense of the building, or if my son Baily should think it more for his advantage to desist building the said dwelling house & Kitchen on Aquia creek, I hereby do desire my son John to assist him in building a suitable quarter, two forty foot tobacco houses & pay to the said Baily one hundred pounds in lieu of the dwelling house, out houses & Kitchen, out of his own particular share, of the estate allotted, if the aforesaid Baily should prefer it to the buildings before mentioned, I give & bequeath to my sons John & Baily all my household stuff & stock on the plantation whereon I now live to be equally divided between them & hereby empower my Excrs to sell any part of the perishable effects belonging to my son Baily for his the said Baily's use.

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.-
