      Captain Thomas Todd married Anne Gorsuch, the daughter of Rev. John Gorsuch, whose wife Anne was a daughter of Sir William Lovelace, and sister of Richard Lovelace, the poet, and of Colonel Francis Lovelace, Gov. of New York. The Gorsuch-Lovelace ancestry is a distinguished one. Rev. John Gorsuch was a staunch supporter of King Charles I and, according to tradition, he met his death in 1647 when the Puritans caused him to be smothered in a haystack. The widow Gorsuch then came to Virginia with the children, as her brother, Colonel Francis Lovelace, was in Virginia at that time.

      After the death of Captain Thomas Todd, his widow Anne Gorsuch Todd married Captain David Jones, who lived at Cole's Harbor, part of the site of the city of Baltimore. Captain Jones, who gave his name to Jones Falls, the stream which runs through Baltimore, arising in the Green Spring Valley, had a dwelling house at what is approximately the corner of High and Fayette Streets in downtown Baltimore. This tract, originally Cole's Harbor, was later repatented by James Todd, son of Captain Thomas Todd, and called "Todd's Range". It extended from Broadway on the east to Howard Street on the west, the northern boundary being Madison Street and the southern boundary the Baltimore waterfront. When Baltimore Town was established in 1729 "Todd's Range" was subdivided into building lots.

      Captain David Jones died in 1686 and his widow, Anne Gorsuch Todd Jones, then married Captain John Oldton of Garrison Forest. Captain Oldton was commanding officer of the Baltimore County Rangers at Garrison on the Reisterstown Road. One of the properties which he and his wife owned was Darley Hall, located at what is now Harford Road and North Avenue in Baltimore City, extending northward to Darley Avenue. This tract was sold to John Ensor in 1697.
