      Family records indicate a birth year of 1668 for James STODDERT. He was married to Mary (unknown) at least by 1695 [Indenture from James Stoddert and wife Mary to John Preston, planter of Anne Arundel Co. for 67.10 on 16 May 1695; parcel called Barshg Bay; containing 80 acres.] It is uncertain when sons James, William and John were born, but in all probability it was earlier than 1704-1708. It has been speculated that James' wife is the daughter of Thomas Driffield because of the notation "son in law" for James in his will. But it is my understanding that that term was used to imply "step-son."

      STODART [Stoddert], JOHN, Charles Co. 6 May, 1767; 18 May, 1767
      Desire to be buried by side of dec'd. wife in own burying grounds, without the least show of pomp or grandeur, more than the presence of a few neighbours, decently attending my corps to its place of interment, and there witnessing its being covered with clay, A glass of wine may be asked them to drink without any other expence. It is my desire that none of my children put themselves into a mourning dress for my death, as their concern for the loss of me may be equally the same without it and my estate. Debts to be paid.
      To grandson William Truman Stoddart, land I now live on called "Confirmation", to me granted; "Southampton Enlarged," originally 2 tracts: one called "Southampton Surveyed", for a certain Francis Batchlor, 26 Aug, 1662, which sd. Batchlor had a dau. intermarried with a certain Wm. Smith, by virtue of which intermarriage, sd. Smith became a tenant by the courtesee of England in sd, land, and no hrs. of Batchelor appearing, land afsd. after death of Smith, would have reverted to the Lord Proprietary, which Smith, in an humble petition to Lord Proprietary, 3 Apr, 1684, prays that he might purchase his Lordship's Right of Reversion, which for a valuable consideration pd. by Smith, his Lordship granted, as will more fully appear by his Lordship's answer to the Petitioner, 9 May, 1684. See Liber 6 B, Folio 84.
      The other tract called "Addition To Southampton", surveyed for James Stoddert, Jr, for 190 A, on 17 Sep, 1723, including the 500 A. tract, which I possessed his father John Trueman Stoddert with, but never confirmed to him the moiety of sd. tract, to be divided by an equal proportion In breadth upon Pomunkie Creek; sd, grandson Wm, Trueman Stoddert, to have southernmost pt. of, and in default of use Of same, to son Wm. Trueman Stoddert, saving always hereby -to dau-in-law Lucy Heabeard Stoddert, 1/3 pt. of 500 A., which I possessed son John Trueman Stoddert with, although it; were never confirmed to him, during her natural life.
      To son Kenhelm Trueman Stoddert, silver gilted sword and cane; tract. called "Pasture".
      To son Richard Truman Stoddert and hrs., land formerly in occupation of Wm. Smith, viz: one tract granted originally to a certain Thos. Sisson, 1658 for 450 A., and tract. called "Wiccowoman", granted to a certain Richard Williams, 1653, for 200 A,; what interest I have with hrs. of William Hutcheson, dec'd., for land In upper Cedar Point Neck, called by patent of 'Confirmation".
      To son Walter Truman Stoddert, 2 tracts on Potomack River, place known as Smith's Point., formerly occupatlon of Wm. Smith, granted Wm. Smith, 1685, 300 A, called "Wiccowoman"; the other tract adjoining, called "Price's Adventure", surveyed on 11 Mar, 1668 for a certain Edward Price, for 200 A.
      To dau. Mary Truman Fendall, half pt, of tract I now live on called "Southampton Enlarged." The other half I have given to grandson Wm. Truman Stoddart, but In default. of such Issue, then land to sons Richard Truman Stoddert and Walter Truman Stoddert.
