Christopher Johnston in his article "Neale Family of Charles County," published in 1912 in the Maryland Historical Magazine, claimed that Anne Calvert and Baker Brooke's daughter Mary was the wife of Raphael Neale (d. 1743) of Charles County with the source being from the same magazine but vol. 1, pp. 69-70, 184.If you follow up on that source it turns out to be an article on the Brooke family, but no documentation is provided there to substantiate the claim to Baker Brooke's daughter Mary being Raphael Neale's wife. Another problem with that claim is that she would have been years older than her husband, and would have been nearly ninety years old when she died.The latter of which was nearly an impossible task in the Chesapeake at that time.The will of Mary Neale of St. Mary's County, widow of Raphael Neale of Charles County, was written 29 Sept. 1760 and recorded 24 May 1763; but I have been unable to find evidence supporting the placement of Anne Calvert's daughter as the wife of Raphael Neale.Does anyone know of documentation to that claim? Baker Brooke, Esq., of "Delabrooke Manor" in Calvert County died testate in 1768 leaving his wife Anne, three sons, and daughter Mary.While still administering to his estate she re-married Henry Brent (d.s.p. 1693), Gent., of "Pitchcroft" in Calvert County.Shortly after his death she married her third husband Mr. Richard Marsham, merchant, and by 1696 had settled with him in Prince Georges County.Richard Marsham died testate in 1713, leaving only descendants by his first wife Katherine.Before his death he and his wife Anne were involved in at least eleven cases in the Prince Georges County Court; five of which involved her directly as administratrix of Henry Brent. At the same time that Richard Marsham and his wife Anne were settling in Prince Georges County, another family removed there, also coming from Calvert County.Charles Beaven had been granted 600 acres in Calvert County called "Hickory Thicket" early in 1696, but died testate in Prince Georges County between 20 Jun. 1698 and 21 Jun. 1699.He provided well for all his sons and daughters, even giving land to the daughters.His wife Mary died testate between 28 Apr. 1712 and 13 Jun. 1713.Mary's will, even though witnessed by her son-in-law and daughter, Thomas and Sarah Blandford, made Richard Marsham the executor and sole legatee.In the 24 Aug. 1713 accounting of her estate Marsham Warring, grandson of Richard Marsham, was serving as her administrator, as he was also serving as administrator of his grandfather's estate. Was Charles Beaven's wife Mary one and the same with Mary Brooke, step-daughter of Richard Marsham?Given the chronology, locations involved, and familial interaction this identification of Anne Calvert's daughter as the wife of Charles Beaven seems more likely than the claim by Christopher Johnston in 1912 that she was the wife of Raphael Neale. I would appreciate any assistance in this matter.
