      Transported by Thomas Weston in 1640 who had Westbury Manor in St. Georges Hundred, St. Mary's County. Thomas Hebden had lands South of Weston in the same Hundred.

      From Ralph D Smith; There are a couple of records in Skinner showing that Thomas Weston (he transported William), was formerly of Virginia. You have a couple of records saying the same thing, although different records. The point is, if Thomas Weston came to Md. from Va. there is a good chance he brought William with him. That is, it may not be that William's migration pattern was England to Maryland but England to Virginia to Maryland. .. mm Note: James Hughes & I searched through all the VA published land and court records to extract the Marshall records. Thomas Weston had an interesting and colorful life and William Marshall probably spent some time in the Eastern Shore VA counties before coming to St. Mary's Co. Md with Weston.

      1635-1646 - Thomas Hebden transported self in 1635, his wife Katherine in 1640 & received on assignment from James Neale, Esq. (for transporting 5 men in 1640) 1000 acres, was granted the neck of land on the west side of St. George's River, bounding St. George's Creek, Beane's Creek, for 700 acres. Date: 7 February 1643. Katherine Marshall, wife of William Marshall, late wife of Thomas Hebden (dec'd) assigned her right to 600 acres on St. George's Creek to James Hall. Date: 10 June 1646. Witnesses: Peter Libar, John Douglas.
      Source: Skinner, V. L., Jr., "Abstracts of the Proprietary Records of the Provincial Court of Maryland, 1637-1658," pp. 179-80

      Comment: This 1635-1646 data reported by Skinner was recorded at the Maryland Provincial Court sitting at Patuxent on June 17, 1656. The June 10, 1646 date shown by Skinner is clearly in error because Thomas Hebden did not die until Oct. 1649. The June 10, 1646 date should probably read June 10, 1656.

[Ibid., pp. 249-50.]

      Feb. 9 "Rob. Ellyson discharged of his sheriffwick by L[ieut.] G[enl.]" 1643 [Ibid., p. 250.] Mar. "the Sheriff returned for grand Enquest, who were impannelled & 1643 sworne:... Mr Tho. Greene gent, Rob Ellyson, Rob Kedger, Francis Gray, George Binx, Will. Edwin, Nathan POPE, William MARSHALL, Xpofer Carnoll, Tho.

[Ibid., p. 260.]

      These suits were not confined to tobacco. In the same year, William Parry of Virginia, through his attorney, Giles Brent, sought in the court at St. Mary’s a verdict against Thomas Boys for eight pounds of beaver. This beaver was probably the consideration in a sale of cattle, as there seems to have been from an early date a trade in live stock between the citizens of Kecoughtan, the place where Parry resided, and the Colony farther to the north. In 1644, Leonard Calvert and Fulk Brent of Maryland were sued by Richard Bennett for a sum of tobacco due for supplies; and John Walton by Edward Bland for the value of a boat which Walton had obtained while trading in Virginia. Among other citizens of prominence in the latter Colony who at thus time were carrying on commercial transactions with merchants in Maryland, were Thomas Mathew, Robert West, and John Hansford.2
