      Children of Elizabeth HUSSEY and Samuel LUCKETT are:.

      i. Samuel LUCKETT was born 10 OCT 1685 in Port Tobacco Parish,Charles County,Maryland, and died Bef 1750. He married Elizabeth Anne NEALE Bef 1711. She died Aft 1750.

      ii. Thomas LUCKETT was born 12 AUG 1688 in Port Tobacco,Charles County,Maryland, and died 4 AUG 1734 in Charles County,Maryland.

      iii. Ignatius LUCKETT was born 30 JAN 1689/1690 in Port Tobacco Creek,Charles County,Maryland, and died Abt 1735.

      iv. Thomas Hussey LUCKETT was born Aft 1689 in Charles County,Maryland, and died Abt 1767.
      "The Lucketts of Portobacco, MD", by Harry Wright Newman, provides an early history of the Luckett family in the Americas:

      "The Luckett family also has its traditions. The original Luckett was one of the colonists who settled in Lord Baltimore's Province of Avalon on the Isle of Newfoundland during 1621, and came to Virginia when Lord Baltimore visited that colony in 1629, and there he remained. A few years later in 1634 when Leonard Calvert, son of the First Lord Baltimore, established the Maryland Palatinate, he removed to Maryland to become once again under the sovereignty of his former lordship. Only little credence can be placed in this tradition, for no proof has been found for its authenticity".

      Settled in Maryland before 1678.
      Samuel was a member of the Maryland Provinical Court during 1696, he signed a Petition to the King as a member of the Provinical Court and as a Civil Officer of Charles County. Since Catholics could not hold public office indicates that he was a member of the Church of England.
      When Samuel died his estate was valued at 829 pounds, 13 shillings, 3 pence and included 7 white indentured servants but no slaves.

      At the Perogative Court held in Charles County during 1684, "Appeared Samuel Luckett of Charles County who intermarried with the relict and administrator of John Gardiner and showeth that he never intermedled with goods". Here proof exists of his marriage to the widow, and also for the belief that he had interferred with the estate of her deceased husband. (Harry Wright Newman)
      ===
      mm: That Samuel Luckett had a daugher Sarah is not proved. Samuel must have had an earlier marriage for this to work.

      Pamela Pearson research notes:

      16 June 1675: Samuell Luckett, with 2 years and 6 months left to serve, was listed in the inventory of James Walker, as were Jno. Sanders, Wm Bishop, Thomas Wilson, and Margueritt Swan. (MD Prerogative Court, Inventories & Accts, Vol. 1: 393-397)
      Walker's widow, Alice, married John Faning

      15 Nov 1677: Mr. Jno Faning entered the mark of a heifer about three years of age given by him to Samueull Luckett. (Charles Co, MD Court and Land Records, Liber G: 83)

      Assuming Samuel served 5 years that ended around Nov 1677, an arrival date of 1672 is reasonable. Since his age was not proved in court (at least to my knowledge), he was likely 21 or over when he arrived. A year of birth of 1650 is as good as any.

      Samuel's service from 1672 to 1677 pretty much lays to rest the notion that he married a woman named Sarah and had a daughter in 1670. Samuel left a will that does NOT mention any daughters or any Robey grandchildren.
