      mm note: it was originally thought that this was William Marshall the 4th decended from the Marshall hall line. DNA testing has shown that they were Halogroup "I1" and my line is "R1a" with roots near aberdeen scotland.

      only other Marshall's in this area were from Calvert and Baltimore

      The records following are interesting. William is living in Frederick County near Nolands Ferry on Carrolton Manor by 1742 and signs a 16-1/2 year lease in 1744, same as Robert Pearl. But since, Thomas Wilson was a close neighbor and Edward Mobberly a school teacher. It would appear, Robert Pearl had land in pre-Frederick county by 1742.

      the www.freeafricanamericans.com website indicates that Anne, born say 1722, a "Mulatto" woman who married a white planter named William Marshall. The Prince George's County court ordered that he be sold as a servant for seven years. On 23 August 1743 the court ordered him released from prison so the case could be tried at the Provincial Court [Court Record 1743-4, 17].

      this is transcribed incorrectly. William's brother Thomas Marshall was jailed and William provided the bail. The case was dismissed. A Thomas Marshall, Jr., admitted having a child by his father's servant Susan Swan. [refer to 11 Nov 2004 telephone call to Paul Heinegg [SMTP:pheinegg@comcast dot net]

At the request of the plaintiffs, the Court issued an attachment in their behalf and ordered the estate inventoried. [there follows the valuation of various items of personal property]
