Boush connection; seal ring; Princess Anne Co., VA
I just submitted this information in the Boush forum, but decided it should go in here also.I noticed the first name Maximillian in one of the messages and also quite a few messages regarding Princess Anne County.I live in Maryland, so the Calvert (which I pronounce Cal-as in Ripkin; most "old Marylanders" say "Callvert or Culvert") name is very familiar to me.I believe there is also a collateral tie.
I have a "Year Book, Pasquotank Historical Society (NC), Vol. 4; 1983.In a chapter headed "Boush" is the following information:
"Maximillian Boush came from England in 1699 and received warrants from Queen Anne of England to settle suits and appear on behalf of Her Majesty in any cause needful or suits which should occur in the counties of Princess Anne, Norfolk, or Nansemond, which should be brought at any time hereafter - dated Oct. 20, 1708."
"This Maximillian Boush was the father of Frederick Boush of Princess Anne, who was the father of Caleb Boush, who was the father of Jacamine Boush who married Dr. Richard Ramsay of Pasquotank, parents of Mary Eliza Toma and Emily Carolyn Commander."
"Jacamine Ramsay was closely related to Cecilius Calvert, second Lord Baltimore, her uncle John Calvert, being a descendant of Cecilius Calvert, and lived his later days in Princess Anne County.He left one daughter, Mary Eliza."
"Mary Eliza Ramsay, daughter of Richard and Jacamine Ramsay, inherited the seal ring with the Calvert Coat of Arms inscribed upon it, and the diamond ring which had been in the family hundreds of years."
