      Margaret Peshell was the wife of Richard Brent Jr., they were the parents of the Spinster Anne Brent mentioned in the 1651 record. She is being confused with Her Aunt whose mother was Elizabeth Reed. I have looked at the Brents transcribed records baptisms ect..

      The mention of Anne Brent as a spinster, that is actually a niece of original Anne Brent, I have looked at these records.

      Anne Brent daughter of Richard Brent and Elizabeth Reed, had a brother named Richard Brent no doubt named for his father, he had a wife off the top of my head I believe her first name was Margaret, when you look at the records for the Spinster Anne Brent she is the daughter of Richard Brent Jr., and Margaret??? she has been confused with her Aunt. My thinking is the reason we don't have a record for Leonard Calvert's marriage to Anne Brent is because it was a Catholic Ceremony. Just speculation, they would have been marrying in England on Leonard's trip back from Maryland it wasn't popular to be a Practicing Catholic in England in those days.

      Note:
      This branch of the family were Catholics and were in constant trouble with the authorities on account of their failure to attend upon the services of the Established Church of England. The family of Brent divided at this time in their religious adherence the same as the Horsley-London branches of the Horsley family of Pershall. In the Royalist papers (State Papers, Domestic, G 72, pages 231, 276 and 285) appears the following:-January 25, 1654-5. Order for search to be made in the old books as to the sequestration of the manor of Larkstoke, Co. Gloucester, for the Recusancy of Richard Brent the elder, deceased, or of Foulke Brent, Richard Brent the younger, Edward Brent, George Brent, Anne Brent and Jane Brent, children of said Richard Brent the elder...When the children were summoned to take the [loyalty] oath there appeared only Mrs Anne Brent and she refused to take it. The estate was therefore continued under sequestration, all of them being known papists. Dated at Gloucestor May 10, 1653. It was an important fact in our family history that this branch of the Brent family were Roman Catholics and the friends of the Calverts and the Lords Baltimore." (Pearsalls Page 994-996)

      The following "Gleanings from English Wills" by Mrs. Russel
      Hastings in Maryland Magazine, Vol. 22, p.307,says:
      "The identity of Leonard Calvert's wife (now that it is known that
      Margaret Brent's sister Anne was a non-juring spinster in 1651, ten years after the birth of Leonard Calvert's children) is undiscovered, although she was quite possibly a member of the prolific Brent family."
      None of the Brents showed any interest in the children of Leonard Calvert, by will or otherwise, as it seems natural they would have done, had the children been nephew and niece.
