I'm wondering if the family came from the town of Letchworth in Dorsetshire, England.What are the earliest Letchworths in this book?
Is Thomas Letchworth of Calvert County, Maryland, in the book? He was apparently born 1620-40 (in England?). He served in the Lower House of Md Assembly during the Puritan Regime in 1660; he also served as Justice of Calvert Co.He acquired lands in Calvert Co, Md, the most important grant being "Letchworth's Chance" on 22 May 1657 (Libre 2 folio 6). This tract consisted of 1100 acres on the Upper Cliffs in Calvert Co near Plum Point.His wife was named Elizabeth. Some list him as Thomas Letchworth "Jr.," but I don't know anything about his parents.
