  • Notes 
    • It has not been proven that John MacCubbin's wife was Eleanor Carroll or that he had married twice.

      Identifications of Eleanor as a Carroll apparently all derive from Warfield. J.D.Warfield,The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties,Maryland. Batimore,1905.

      I strongly recommend any Maccubbin researcher to read the Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin, Spring 1999 Volume 40,# 2.p.159-221." John Maccubbin of Anne Arundel County" by Rudolf Loeser.

      I just found the answer to my question - she got Howard's Thickett from her husband John Howard. Here is excerpt of John Howard's will written Dec. 30, 1695. Well there goes another theory on her identity....~ Fonda

      A place to start with MACCUBBINS would be with Rudolf Loeser, "John Maccubbin of Anne Arundel County and His Children," Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin, 40 (Spring 1999), 159+).

      He states the part about John MACCUBBIN, Sr. as having married Susan, daughter of Samuel HOWARD, started with Warfield's Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties. [The part about Samuel HOWARD having a daughter Susan is false. FZS] Warfield also stated that Elinor was a second wife who "was, I believe, of the family of Dr. Charles CARROLL and James CARROLL." Loeser states all later references to her surname as CARROLL come from Warfield.

      Loeser believes Eleanor is John's only wife, but does not know her surname. He also notes that Edward SKIDMORE patented Hamilton near John MACCUBBIN and claimed Eleanor ABRAHAM as one of his headrights in 1662, having transported (among others named) "Elinour ABRAHAM" in 1659.

      John, Jr., who Loeser lists as the eldest son of John, Sr., in depositions gave his age as 50 odd years on 4 Mar. 1717/8 [born before 1668], 61 in 1728 [born ca. 1667], 61 in 1728 [born ca. 1667], 70 in 1736 [born ca. 1666], and 86 in 1751 [born ca. 1666]. His death notice in the MD Gazette gave his death on 7 May 1752 as age 88.
