      COURT OF 9 AUG 1692
      Regarding Notley Rozer, orphan son of Col. Benjamin Rozer; Anne, relict of Benjamin, m. Edward Pye
      ===
      Margaret Ruston, born say 1670, the servant of Colonel Edward Pye, admitted to the Charles County court on 12 January 1691/2 that she had an illegitimate child. The court ordered that she receive twelve lashes. A year later on 1 January 1692/3 Pye brought her into court to have her adjudged for the damages he sustained by her giving birth to a child during her indenture, and the court noted that her child was a "Molattoe and ye father of ye sd. Child a Negroe slave belonging to ye sd. Edwd. Pye." She may have been the first white woman in the county to give birth to a mixed-race child under the law of 1692 because the justices were undecided about how to rule on the matter and referred it to the next court so that "ye old Lawes Concerning Negroes & Slaves may be Enquired into" [Court and Land Record 1690-2, 334; 1692(3)-4, 9]
