I was hoping someone could offer me some info. on John Addison who patented much land in old Charles/Prince Georges County,Md. back in the 1680's. Interested in his place of origin and his trek to Oxen Hill area. Who he married and if any noteworthy family history back in Great Britain. One of the tracts he patented he called "Arran" which is in Ayershire,Scotland and he apparently was close to one william Hutchinson who was also from Ayershire..Am I correct to assume John Addison was from Ayershire in scotland?
