Actually, I mispoke in my previous messages.I wasn't readingmy own notes carefully enough.
I meant to say that I think Mary (--) Beavan was *NOT* a daughter of Richard Marsham.Rather, I feel that she was
Mary (Brooke) Beven, daughter of Baker Brooke Sr. and Ann Calvert and, therefore, Richard Marsham's step-daughter and the step-sister of Basil Waring's wife, Sarah Marsham.
As for "De La Brooke Manor" being involved, the Brookes owned many plantations.Robert Brooke named his oldest son Baker Brooke as lord of "De La Brooke Manor" (in St. Mary's Co. at that time) and chose to live across the Patuxent River on "Brooke Place", which was in Calvert Co.It looks like the county boundaries changed so that "De La Brooke Manor" was in Calvert Co. by 1678. Anyway, where was Thomas Brooke, who was Katherine Fisher's former master, living after his father's death in 1655?The earliest patent I see for him is 1666 for "Brooke's Neck".
Anyway, how do you know on which plantation David Bowen was working?And do you know when his indenture was up?We don't really know if David Bowen (and Katherine Fisher, for that matter) had been Robert Brooke's servant in England or if their indentures began in 1650, right?
