      St. Clement's Manor, granted to Dr. Thomas Gerard, no longer exists; but All Saints Episcopal Church remains in the town of Avenue on Rt. 242 as you drive toward St. Clement's Island and the Potomac River Museum at Colton's Point. Dr. Gerard, a Catholic, built it for his wife, an Anglican, as a place where she and her servants could worship.

      Samuel Maddox (1638-1684) arrived from Wales to Maryland in 1665 with Thomas Notley. Both immigrants settled in St. Mary's County on the Wicomico River where Maddox, Maryland is now located. He was about 25 years old, which was not all that young for the times.
