4. RICHARD2 JACOB, SR. (JOHN1)18 was born 30 Jan 1697/98 in South River Hundred, Anne Arundel Co, MD, and died 25 Jun 1779 in Anne Arundel Co, MD19. He married HANNAH HOWARD20 1 Jan 1717/18 in St. Margaret's Church, Westminster Parish, Anne Arundel Co, MD21, daughter of JOSEPH HOWARD and HANNAH DORSEY. She was born Abt. 1701 in Anne Arundel Co, MD22, and died Bef. 1779 in Anne Arundel Co, MD.

Notes for R
Richard, the son of John and Anne (Cheney) Jacob, was born 30 Jan 1697/8, at South River Hundred. His youth was spent at the South River plantation which continued his abode until a few years after his marriage.

It may be assumed that he possessed a great force of character and graciousness of manner for he won the hand of one of the aristocratic and noble Howards. Even discounting his sister's union with the son of Mareen Duval, his marriage was the most brilliant of all the connections of the early Jacobs.

He courted Hannah Howard at her parental estate "Howard's Inheritance" on South River, and married her on January 1 1718, according to the records of St. Margaret's Church. Hannah was the daughter of Joseph Howard and his first wife, Hannah Dorsey, granddaughter of Col. Edward Dorsey and Sarah Wyatt, his first wife. Richard and his wife lived in the South River area when the first children's births occurred. They were recorded at All Hallows Church. Later children's births were recorded at St. Margaret's, Westminster Parish.

Richard Jacob was the first member of his family to invade the Patapsco area of Anne Arundel County. In 1739 he purchased "Denchworth", lying on a branch of Curtis Creek. In 1762 Richard patented "Jacob's Policy" containing 31 acres, and three years later he received a warrant for "Jacob's Resurvey Contrived", a large tract of 1,303 acres which various members of the family held for several succeeding generations. Before his death he was one of the largest land owners in the Patapsco Hundred of Anne Arundel County.

In 1760 Richard Jacob and Hugh Merriken Jr. were executors of the will of Richard Westall who died without direct heirs. In the same year William Cromwell conveyed to Richard Jacob 61 acres of land known as "Philipp's Fancy", lying at the mouth of Stony Creek for the consideration of rents.

Richard Jacob was one of the early patriots of Maryland, asserting his principles in 1778 when he took the Oath of Fidelity and Support to the State of Maryland (DAR Magazine, vol. 51). Although himself too aged to participate in battle, he gave several of his sons to the famous Maryland Line.

During his declining years he conveyed his landed estate to his children "for the consideration of natural love and affection", until at his death the greater portion of his land had been devised.

Richard Jacob made his will on November 28, 1777, but it was not proved at Annapolis until June 25, 1779. His wife had departed some years previously. His maiden daughter, Anne, was chatelaine of his plantation and to her during her natural life or until marriage he granted the use of the dwelling. Anne also received three slaves. Zachariah was given the dwelling and plantation in fee simple, containing 592 acres with the condition that he allow his sister, Anne, the use of the same. Zachariah also received negroes.

He left his sons -- John, Richard, and Samuel -- and the heirs of his deceased son, Joseph, each one shilling. Dorsey, the youngest son, was devised one negro. Sarah, Hannah, and Rachel received a slave each. Rachel also received one feather bed and some furniture. His daughter, Susannah Pumphrey, was granted a negro and her increase, who later was to descend to her son, Richard Boone.

His granddaughter, Ann, the daughter of Samuel, was left one slave. After all debts and legacies were paid, the residue was to be divided between Zachariah and Anne.
