Capt. Gassaway, from the Committee appointed to enquire into the Facts contained in William Wells and Rebecca his Wife, their Petition, delivers to Mr. Speaker the following Report. By the Committee appointed by the Honourable the Lower House of Assembly, to enquire into the Truth of the Facts set forth in the Petition of William Wells, and Rebecca his Wife.
October 31, 1753.
Your Committee find, That William Marshall, of Prince George's County, by his last Will and Testament, in Writing, bearing Date the 23d of April 1734, did, amongst other Things therein contained, devise unto his two Daughters, Sarah and Rebecca Marshall, and the Heirs of their Body lawfully begotten, all that Tract of Land called Charley, except One Hundred Acres to his Son Thomas Marshall, and in Default of such Heirs of them, or either of them, then to his Son Thomas, and his Heirs for ever; whereby the said Rebecca Marshall, now Wife of the Petitioner William Wells, hath Right to One Hundred and Thirty Acres, Part of the said Tract of Land called Charley.

We find a Deed from James Maxwell, Son and Heir of James Maxwell of Baltimore County, to Lucy Evans, Executrix of Lewis Evans, of Anne Arundel County, for a Tract of Land, containing Two Hundred Acres, lying on the West Side of Chesapeak Bay, and on the South Side of Herring Creek, bearing Date the 19th of May, 1691, duly executed, acknowledged and enrolled, which Land was patented to William Parker, September the 4th, 1666, as appears by a Recital in the said Deed, and sold by him the said William Parker, to James Maxwell. Father of the above mentioned James Maxwell, the First Day of November, 1667, as also appears by a Recital in the said Deed.

We also find a Deed of Gift, from Lucy Evans, to her two Daughters, Elisabeth and Sarah Evans, for the aforesaid Land, bearing Date the 7th Day of September, 1691, duly executed and enrolled, L: H. J. and afterwards recorded in the Special Court Records, of Anne No. 47 Arundel County. We find that the said Elisabeth Evans, and Sarah her Sister, who intermarried with a certain Samuel Griffith, by their joint Petition to his Lordship's Agent, obtained a Warrant of Resurvey on the said Two Hundred Acres of Land, and included therein Ninety Three Acres of Surplus, and obtained a Patent for the Quantity of Two Hundred and Ninety Three Acres, called Evan's Purchase, bearing Date the 16th Day of September, 1720, and that a Division of the said Land hath been made. We also find a Deed from Elisabeth Faudrie, (who is the same Elisabeth Evans, one of the Daughters of Lucy Evans abovementioned,) to William Wells, of Anne Arundel County, bearing Date the 19th of April, 1753, duly executed, acknowleged and recorded, for One Hundred Four Acres and an Half Acre, of her Part of the Land, being Part of the said Two Hundred and Ninety Three Acres. Your Committee also find a Deed from Benoni Holliday, of Anne Arundel County, to Henry Child, the Son of Henry Child, junr. bearing Date the 29th of August, 1730, duly acknowleged and recorded, for Fifty Acres of Land, Part of a Tract called Trent, also lying in Anne Arundel County; which said Benoni was Heir at Law to his Father William Holliday, who was in Possession of the said Fifty Acres of Land, upwards of Forty Years, and those who claimed under him were always since, in quiet Possession thereof. We find a Deed, from the said Henry Child, to William Wells the Petitioner, for the same Fifty Acres of Land, Part of Trent, bearing Date the 22d Day of June, 1743, duly acknowleged and recorded. We also find, that a certain Joseph Morely had the whole Tract of Land, called Trent, containing Four Hundred and Fifty Acres, patented to him, in the Year 1666, but how William Holliday came by his Right to the Fifty Acres of Land aforesaid, Part of Trent, does not appear to your Committee. And, we likewise find, upon Enquiry into the Value of the said several Lands, that the One Hundred and Four Acres of Land and an Half Acre, Part of Evans's Purchase, as aforementioned, and the Fifty Acres, Part of the Land called Trent, are as commodious and of equal Value with the aforesaid One Hundred and Thirty Acres of Land called Charley; all which is humbly submitted to the Consideration of your Honourable House.
Signed per Order, William Wilkins, Clerk.
On reading the said Report, the House concurs therewith: Ordered, That Leave be given to the Petitioners, to bring in a Bill according to the Prayer of their Petition.

Mr. Key, from the Committee of Laws, delivers to Mr. Speaker, a Bill intituled, An Act for raising a Duty of Three Halfpence Sterling per Hogshead, on all Tobacco exported out of this Province, for the Use of the Governor; which was read the first Time, and ordered to lie on the Table.

An Act to cut off the Entail of Part of a Tract of Land called Charley now lying in Charles and Prince George's County's and to Entail Lands of equal Value in lieu thereof.
Whereas William Wells of Anne Arundel County and Rebecca his Wife have by their Petition to this General Assembly set forth That a certain William Marshall late of Prince George's County deceased (Father to the Petitioner Rebecca) did by his last Will and Testament in writing duly executed and recorded Devise Part of a Certain Tract of Land called Charley now laying Part thereof in Charles County and Part in Prince George's County Containing One hundred and thirty Acres to her the said Rebecca and the Heirs of her Body lawfully begotten and in default of such Heirs then to his son Thomas Marshall and his Heirs for ever as in the said Will is expressed and that he the said William Wells in Right of his wife Rebecca by virtue of the Devise aforesaid stands seized and Possessed of the said Part of the Tract of Land called Charley.

And forasmuch as it appears to this General Assembly that the said One hundred and four Acres and an half Acre part of the Tract of Land called Evans's Purchase laying in Anne Arundel County aforesaid and the said Fifty Acres of Land part of the Tract of Land called Trent also laying in Anne Arundel County aforesaid are of equal Value with the One hundred and thirty Acres of Land part of the aforesaid Tract of Land called Charley and that Thomas Marshall son and Heir of the said William Marshal who has by virtueof the Will of the said William Marshal an Estate in Fee Simple in the said One hundred and thirty Acres of Land Part of the said Tract of Land called Charley expectant on the Demise of the said Rebecca Wells without Heirs of her Body lawfully begotten hath signified by a Remonstrance under his Hand and Seal to this present General Assembly that he is willing that the Entail of the said One hundred and thirty Acres part of the said Tract of Land called Charley may be Docked and Cutt off and that the said One Hundred and four Acres and an half Acre of Land part of the Tract of Land called Evans's Purchase aforesaid and the Fifty Acres of Land part of the Tract of Land called Trent may be Entailed in lieu thereof and in the same manner that the said One hundred and thirty Acres part of the Tract of Land called Charley is Entailed. Therefore be it Enacted by the Right Honourable the Lord Proprietary by and with the Advice and Consent of his Lordships Governor and the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly and the Authority of the same That the said Rebecca Wells Wife of the said William Wells be and is hereby vested with an Absolute Estate in Fee Simple of and in the said One hundred and thirty Acres of Land Part of the said Tract of Land called Charley laying part thereof in Charles County and Part thereof in Prince George's County as fully and amply as if the same had been Devised to her in Fee Simple by the last Will and Testament of the said William Marshall late of Prince George's County deceased and that the said William Wells and Rebecca his Wife have by Vertue of this Act of Assembly full Power and Authority to sell and Dispose thereof or any Part or Parcel thereof as fully and amply as if the same One hundred and thirty Acres of Land Part of Charley aforesaid had not been Entailed by the will of the said William Marshall aforesaid any Thing in the said Will contained to the Contrary thereof in any wise notwithstanding

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.

=== 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.

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.-
