I'm looking for the English origins of Robert JARMAN "Gentleman" and John JARMAN. They were probably born in late 1670s or early 1680s. About 1730, they moved from Calvert County to Queen Ann's County, Maryland, where John JARMAN died 1756. Signing John JARMAN's estate inventory as next of kin were Ann EMORY and Ursley SAUNDERS. One record is found of an Ann JARMAN in Calvert County in 1713. Robert JARMAN moved to Craven County, North Carolina in 1734 and died there in 1762. Were they related to a Thomas GERMAN (or JARMAN) who was living in Calvert County, Maryland, as early as 1680? In 1680 he received a small payment from the estate of Izaccy VANTREES (appearantly a matter of debt not kinship). Thomas GERMAN was still living in Calvert County about 1708 when he and a Peter MADRING were the co-owners of a small parcel of land. Peter MADRING died about 1718; an estate for Thomas JARMAN is not yet found. I have not found any evidence of a connection with Thomas JARMAN, but he was in the same general area.
