  • Notes 
    • === note from Linda Reno

      James Wheatley married an Eleanor ? but it was not Eleanor GOUGH.

      Eleanor Gough was listed in mother's will of 1767 as Eleanor GREENWELL.

      James Wheatley married an Eleanor ? who would have been Eleanor WHEATLEY before 1763.

      Eleanor Gough married a "James Greenwell."

      In looking again at Priscilla Gough's administration accounts, I noticed this.

      8/15/1770: Admin. accts. of Priscilla Gough, SMC. Received from:
      Stephen Gough due from estate of James Gough. Payments to: James
      Pike, Zachariah Forrest, Owen Allen. Legatees: Stephen Gough,
      Ignatius Gough, William Jenkins, James Greenwell, accountant. Exec.:
      James Gough. (Admin. accts. of the Prerogative Court of Maryland,
      Libers, 59-66, 1768-1771 by V. L. Skinner, Jr.). NOTE: This record
      is not on CD #206.


      This last account has just killed two birds (or more) with one stone.
      Elizabeth Gough, daughter of James and Priscilla, was married to WILLIAM Jenkins, not John Jenkins (per Donnelly). Eleanor Gough, daughter of James and Priscilla, married JAMES Greenwell. As was the norm, the sons-in-law have been paid their wives' share of Priscilla's estate.

      Not sure at this point which James Greenwell that Eleanor was married to--there are several contenders. Linda Reno

      seems to be a generation missing; but Eleanor's husband ends up with Evans' Quarter so there is some connection to perhaps the John Lanham line.
