In Kent Co. MD, an illeg. child was born ca. 1730 to Philip CARROLL and Margaret Falconer. Still trying to find out what happened to this child. Philip CARROLL was fined for having this child with her.
My family has men named Philip CARROLL SUIT and I believe they connect to the SHUTE in Philadelphia and the descendants of Rev. Joseph CARYL of England.
A man named Gyles SHUTE who lived in Cecil Co. MD (may have been from Kent Co. MD) was born prob. in the 1670's and I believe he was bro. ofmy ancestor, Thomas SUITE of St. Mary's Co. MD.
Gyles Shute was accused of stealing his sister-in-law's husband's horse and convicted in KENT Co. MD in 1702 and moved to Bath Co. NC after that.
He named his son PHILIP.
An earlier man ALSO named Gyles SHUTE was also a controversial religious figure in England in the mid 1600's. He opposed baptism of children and by water from what I have read. He wrote books/book on it.
Then, Rev. Joseph CARYL (later descendants who came to Boston and Northeastern USA spelled it variously.)
Then, in England, there who married a daughter of Rev. Joseph CARYL!!! He had a son named John SHUTE who changed his named to BARRINGTON (1st Viscount BARRINGTON)
John SHUTE, Viscount BARRINGTON m. Anne DAINES.
Then, in Phila. PA we seethat a man named Thos. SHUTE (who I believe was connected to Benjamin SHUTE whose wife was CARYL) had m. a woman named MARY but I don't know her nee.When Thomas SHUTE passed away, Mary remarried to a man named Randall DIENS (that I believe was DAINES and feel he was somehow related to Anne DAINES of Eng.--but sadly, I can find no info. on him except they had children named Chent, Thomas, Sarah, and Randall DIENS, Jr. (no clue what happened to any of them.)
Randall DIENS d. 15 Feb 1746/47 in Philadelphia.
Maybe this can help somehow:
