Chris, I'd like to help if I can but have to confess that the vast majority of my research has been on the Mattingly's who left Maryland.My own went to Kentucky around 1790.I do however, have in my files a number of folks from Maryland who remained there and some of Michael Mattingly's in my files for whom I have no marriages.Do you by chance know the names of your grandparents or great grandparents?Forgive me for guessing but I suspect you're a young man (by my standards, I'm considered to be old at 69) with your parents born sometime between 1940 and 1960.I have several Michael's of that age bracket from Maryland as follows:
Edward Joseph Mattingly and Mary Neely had a son named Michael Robert.
Ignatius Stillman Mattingly & Leah Gibson had a Michael.
James Moakley Mattingly & Helen Spalding had a Michael.
Michael Richard Mattingly & Wanda True had a son named Michael Richard, Jr.
If you know the names of your grandparents, I'll be glad to attempt helping.Meanwhile, if you want to see a bit about where our Mattingly's apparently originated, I would suggest Jack Mattingly's website .Jack has a brief history of the name and some pictures of the town of Mattingley in Hampshire County, England.My ancestor, Cezar Mattingly, was Baptized at St. Clement Danes, Westminister, London, England on 6-26-1671.It is generally believed that our family originated in England and that the name came from the town of Mattingley.
