      Subject: Luke Gardiner and Elizabeth Hatton

      Charles, Dr. Louis Green Carr did extensive research on 17 and 18 th Century Maryland. The following Provincial Court Records should be of benefit to you: Archives X, page 354-55, Provincial Court April 3, 1654. Quote: Whereas I am given to understand that Luke Gardiner does in an uncivil, refractory, and insolent manner detained at his house Elinor Hatton, a young girl daughter to the wife of Lt. Richard Banks and niece to Mr. Thomas Hatton, endeavoring (as is provably suspected) to train her up in the Roman Catholic faith contrary to the mind and will of her mother and uncle, who have often demanded her of Gardiner, who refuses to return her; these are therefore in the lord prop's name to authorise and require said Lt. Bancks, commander of Newtowne Hundred, either by himself or together with such other of the inhabitants of this prov. whom he shall require for assistance, by force of arms or otherwise as he shall see, to seize upon the person of Elinor Hatton and to bring her before me and the council at Saint Mary's to be disposed of as shall be fit. In case of her concealment, Bancks is authorized to search the house of Gardiner or any other who he Bancks shall suspect she might be hidden, as also to arrest Gardiner and bring him before me and the council to answer such charges as Mr. Hatton shall object, either in his own behalf or as Atty. Gen. UNQUOTE.

      Signed William Stone

      Archives X p. 356, Provincial Court April 10 1654: Quote: Hr Thomas Hatton, his lops (Lordship), Sec. and Atty. Gen., on his Lops. behalf and on his own behalf, this day declared agst (agonist) Luke Gardiner for containing Elinor Hatton his niece ( a girl of about XX years old ) from the sd (said) Thomas Hatton and the girl's mother, and trying to train her in the Roman Catholic religion. Gardiner appearing in this suit on a special warrant from the Gov and both parties being heard at large re. the matter of the court for the present pronounced no other order therin, only that Elinor Hatton (who was present in court) should be returned and left to the disposition of her said uncle. UNQUOTE.

      So you see that it was not Luke's wife that was released to Thomas Hatton but his niece Elinor Hatton. There are some 350 single pages of factual notes that Dr. Carr has compiled just on the Gardiner's.
