      Subject: RE: [MDSTMARY-L] Elizabeth Parker/Henry Buckerfield/Samuel Holdsworth/Dr. Patrick Hepburn

      I don't believe that the Elizabeth BUCKERFIELD named in Samuel HOLDSWORTH's will is his step-daughter, but that she is his wife (future wife?). I haven't looked at the original will, but read the *Maryland Calendar of Wills* abstract again. He does not *specifically* call anyone his wife, but:

      To Elizabeth Buckerfield and hrs., her maintenance during life or while she remains single, at expense of estate, and 1/3 personalty. If she shall marry, sd. portion to constitute dower.

      Notice the parts about "1/3 personalty" and it to "constitute dower."

      Has anyone examined the source given in EFSM that in *The American Genealogist* 68:72, that on 15 May 1706 Elizabeth (BUCKERFIELD) BATES and her mother Elizabeth BUCKERFIELD were involved in a lawsuit in London? From that, the daughter was Elizabeth BATES in 1706, and her mother had not yet married Samuel HOLDSWORTH.

      Was Samuel's will written right before the marriage (still Elizabeth BUCKERFIELD) as part of a marriage *agreement/contract* and by Samuel's bad luck he happened to die a couple months later? Notice that Elizabeth was only to receive 1/3 of the personalty, but not of the land. Did Samuel write the will right before the marriage, as a condition of the marriage, that she would not have any of the land, and that all of it would go to his son Thomas?

      I think the connections are supposed to be:

      1. Elizabeth HEPBURN in her will named her great-grandson Lingan, son of Lingan WILSON. [I don't have proof of the connections, but believe it is supposed to be
      a) daughter Elizabeth (BUCKERFIELD) m.1. William BATES; m.2 Alexander BEALL
      b) granddaughter Mary (BATES) m. Lingan WILSON
      c) great-grandson Lingan WILSON]

      2. Alexander BEALL in his will left personalty to the "wife of Lingan WILSON."

      I examined the will of Samuel HOLDSWORTH in Maryland Wills 13:159, FHL microfilm 0,012,845, and it is clear that my assumption yesterday is correct. She is called "Mrs. Elizabeth BUCKERFIELD" in several places. It is also clear that she was living in Samuel HOLDSWORTH's house at the time, as it talks about the "room she now has" and that after his death she is to have the use and possession of two rooms or chambers during her natural life as long as she thinks fit to stay and abide in the house, or remains a
      single woman and unmarried.

      The will also states "and further Provided that if any marriage hereafter Shall happen to be had and solemnized between me and the said Eliza: BUCKERFIELD then and in such case if the said Eliza: my wife after my Decease shall make any other claim or Demand of any Dower or other parts of my Estate whatsoever more than what is herein before and hereby to her bequeathed then all & every the bequest to her hereby made shall cease and be void and the Same Shall Decend & come unto my said son Thomas....."

      There was also a provision regarding that if there was any dispute between Elizabeth BUCKERFIELD and his son Thomas regarding the division of the Negroes or any other goods or chattel that they would each choose an indifferent person to settle between them within 10 days, and if they didn't agree with their decision, then that person would forfeit 100 pounds sterling out of his or her share of the chattel.
