William, Prince Georges Co., MD; 1696
I am not researching this family, just entering information I hope will be useful.From the booklet "Prince Georges Co., Maryland Land Records, 1696-1702" is the following:
"Deed of Gift, 4 November 1696; From: Margery Gardiner of St. Mary's Co., widow; to: William Wittam;Price: Several good causes; Property:one-half of a 200 acre tract called 'Margry'on the west side of Patuxent River in the woods; bounded by land of Alexander Magruder; orinally patented in 1695.Signature: Margery Gardioner (mark); Wit.: Robert Stortan, William Daves."
There were no other listings for this surname in the index.
