      James Lindsey Jr. died in December of 1676, leaving no heirs. His sister, Elizabeth, had bequeathed land to James in her 1676 will, stating that it would pass to her father-in-law, Kenelme Mackloghlin, should James die without heirs. Mackloghlin sold the land in 1677, stating that he had been willed the land by Elizabeth Lindsey. At the time of his death, James owned 600 acres in Charles Co. called Green Spring. The tract escheated to Lord Baltimore in 1679 after an inquistion determined that James had no heirs.
