      mm note, I kind of think Bridget may have been the god mother

      Jean Burkhart

      I have discovered that Bridget Legate was the mother of William Hungerford , Jr ( Charles County Court Lib D, p. 180 or Maryland Archives Online V60:247-) and therefore the widow of "a" William Hungerford. Other court records prove her to have then married a minister named John Legett?Legate who was deceased by 1674 (Proceedings of Charles Co. Ct V60). I then found the court record you cite re the deed from John Gooch to Humphrey Warren in return for lifetime care and providing for Gooch's neice, Bridget Fendall (Lib CD, Fol 55). I have a copy of the original deed and it also declares that John Gooch was the son of Bridget Legate/Legett. Therefore, for Bridgett Fendall to have been John Gooch's neice, her mother would have been John's sister and a daughter of Bridgett Legate who at one time had been married to a Gooch.
