      Note:
      Elizabeth who married John BELT and John LAMB was not a daughter of Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity (who was not surname SPARROW). Richard TYDINGS daughter Elizabeth married Robert CRUMP as shown by the sale of the land she received from the will of her father Richard TYDINGS.

      (Richard TYDINGS and wife Charity, John BELT and wife Elizabeth) were all of the same generation, and a sibling relationship was involved. What is not certain is which two were the siblings. Most likely Charity was a sister to either John or Elizabeth. Details at above site.

      Various publications over the past 100 years have incorrectly listed Richard TYDINGS daughter Elizabeth as being identical to Elizabeth, wife of John BELT.

      That Richard's daughter Elizabeth actually married Robert CRUMP is proved by the following:

      On 25 June 1719 Robert CRUMP and wife Elizabeth of Queen Anne's County, MD sold to Philip THOMAS of Anne Arundel County, MD, the aforesaid Robert CRUMP "standing legally seized in right of the said Elizabeth his wife of the moiety or half part of a tract of Land called Nanjamie" of 375 acres. The deed stated they sold the half part (187.5 acres) that was the right of his wife Elizabeth. Elizabeth's right in the land would have been from it having been her one half of the tract willed to her and her sister Charity in their father's will. Therefore the Elizabeth that first married John BELT, and second John LAMB, and died testate in 1737 as Elizabeth LAMB is NOT the daughter of Richard TYDINGS of the 1687 will. In 1748 Philip THOMAS of Anne Arundel County sold the 187.5 acres, the "undivided moiety" of the tract "Nanjemy" to Thomas HARRISON.

      The inventory of Robert CRUMP's estate taken 11 March 1748 in Queen Anne's Co. and was signed by "next of kin" Preposia BOSTICK. A Preciosia CRUMP married Samuel BOSTOCK 14 Jan. 1730 at St. Luke's Parish, Queen Anne's County. Use of the name Preciosia/Pretiotia among the CRUMP family is added evidence that Richard TYDINGS daughter Elizabeth married Robert CRUMP
