      William Pearsall was the trading partner of Isaac Sr. Allerton.

      The land records of Maryland reading with reference to this transactionas follows:-April 20, 1666, John Mott aggigned over unto William Stevens the right to the lands belonging to Daniel Clarke, William Pissell, Sezar Hopewell, Alexander Speed and Grace Parker. This record gives the names of those who were associated with William Pearsall in this trading station. The list of Early Settlers of Maryland, Book 9, page 297, discloses that William Pearsall had removed to St. Mary's County shortly before 1666 with two men and three women in his family which, being a single man, means the above persons with their wives. It must be remembered that some of the members of the trading station would be away an their boats at the time the census was made, which will account for the difference in numbers.
