The will of Thomas Orrell of Charels County, written in 1719, mentions daughter Jane Lewellin, son-in-law Richard Lewellin, grandson John and grand-dau. Margaret Lewellin and grandson Richard Roger (MCW 5.51). the 1722 will of his daughter, Jane Llewellin, widow of Charles County, mentions a tract called Green Spring in St. Mary's County, bequeathed to Richard Rogers and hrs. This will also mentions Alexander Contee (MCW V.120). William Hooke of St. Mary's County left Richard Rogers, John and Margaret Lewellin, 1s eah (MCW VI.11).
