      Eleanor Butler, born say 1660, was a white woman imported to Maryland by Lord Baltimore. She was the servant of Major William Boarman of St. Mary's County in August 1681 when she married "Negro Charles," one of Boarman's slaves. William Boarman left a St. Mary's County will on 16 May 1708, proved 17 June 1709. He gave his wife "Slaves Robert, Charles & Elliner," his son John Baptiste slave Catherine, his son Francis Ignatius slaves Anne and Margaret, his daughter Mary slaves Sarah and Henry, and his daughter Clare slaves Jane and Susannah [Hodes, White Women, Black Men, 33; Baldwin, Calendar of Maryland Wills, III:140]. The inventory of his estate on 11 July 1709 included an "Elderly Negroe man named Charles," an "old Irish woman," a "Mallattoe" slave named Kate, a "Mallattoe" slave Jane, two "Mallattoe girl" slaves, and two "Mullattoe children" slaves. In 1730 members of the family were listed in the inventory of the estate of John Sanders: Charles "very old & lame," Kate, Jenny, Nan and Betty "Negro women," and seven children [Prerogative Court Inventories 1729-30, 634].
      ===
      Catherine "Kate" Butler, born say 1683, was probably the unnamed "Mallatto Servant" of William Boarman who was mentioned in the Charles County court records on 10 August 1703. Boarman accused John Brayfield of dealing and bartering with his servant [Charles County court Record 1701-4, 249, 264]. She was bequeathed by William Boarman to his son John Baptiste Boarman in 1709 and was a "mallatoe woman slave" listed in William's Charles County estate in 1709. She was called a "Negro woman named Kate" in the inventory of John Sanders in 1730. Several deponents in the William and Mary Butler vs. Richard Boarman suit testified that she was Charles and Nell's daughter [Provincial Court Judgments 1770-1, 235, 236, 239, 241, 243].
      ===
      Elizabeth Butler, born say 1693, was not named among the slaves in Major Boarman's 1709 will but was listed as a "Negro woman" in the inventory of the estate of John Sanders in 1730. She was identified as Eleanor's daughter by seventy-six-year-old Anne Whitehorn in her 27 May 1767 deposition in the Provincial Court. Anne also deposed that Elizabeth was somewhat younger than her, that Elizabeth had been dead about 30 years, and that Elizabeth's son William was about 44 years old at the time of the deposition [Provincial Court Judgments 1770-1, 236-7].
