  • Notes 
    • Born: about 1620
      Married: Damaris ?Stockett/Stockwell.
      He died before January 22, 1673 leaving a wife, Damaras, a son, Samuel, and a dau., Sarah. He was granted by patent (surveyed 1651) land on the south side of the Servern, all in the middle neck hundred. [TQFOAAC].
      Her unusual name also appears in Powell family of which a Damaris b about 1640 m Charles Fowkes. This is compatible with the description in Maryland Archive "....Damaris Wyatt, who took Attorney Thomas Bland as her third husband, was an approve d midwife. She and Nicholas Wyatt, her second husband, with a daughter by her first husband, had come from Virginia into Maryland, and settled on the Severn River. Wyatt, who may have been a surveyor, had laid out for him several parcels of lan d on the south side of the river, and there they lived. He died late in 1672 or early in 1673, for his will was probated in January 1673. Damaris went on living in the same place, and, on October 4, 1673, she took ?One Dorothy Bruton into her ho use who was then very sick and bigg with Child? (post, p. 261) and cared for her for three weeks. Edward Gardner, whose interest in Dorothy is nowhere explained, had especially asked Damaris to do this, and he had ?faithfully promise[d] to satis fie the said Damoris what she Should reasonably deserve? (ibid.). There may have been some connection between Gardner and Dorothy Bruton: she was never called Mrs., and never said to have had a husband. When she died, in July 1675, she left tw o daughters, and she made Gardner her executor. ...."

      Stockett may be the name of a previous husband.

      She may have been the sister of Thomas Stockett b about 1635 in England
