    Gail Robert Thomas, GTom442@aol.com: Daniel Thomas was brought to MD in 1683 by Thomas Hollyday, a merchant who owned large tracts of land in Maryland, not far from where Daniel acquired his first land (Friendship) in 1708. Daniel was a member of St John's Church at Broad Creek. Descendants were William, Notley, Benjamin, Otho Sharetts, Col John Benjamin, William Columbus Thomas. Allied lines are BEALL, BERRY, BUCK, BUNTON, CARY, DAVIS, DARNALL, DUTROW, FOX, GOURLEY, GRIFFITH, HAYS, HEBB, JENKINS, LAMAR, LEWIS, OLAND, RANENBERGER, RIDGEWAY, ROWLAND, SNOUFFER, TENNELLY, TRUNDLE, WHELAN, AND WILLIAMS. Daniel's descendants migrated to Frederick Co, to Columbus, OH, to Missouri, some to NC, IL, KY, KS, and WA. I published a 232 page book in 1966 and continue to search for additions. Other names I am searching are ACKERMAN, WEISDORFER, MCCULLOUGH, and MCKAY.
    I did not find Daniel Thomas on any transportation lists, but did find an item in Peter Wilson Coldham's Complete Book of Emmigrants 1661-1669, Genealogical Publishing Co. Baltimore. (1990) wherein it mentions a Daniell Thomas of Lambeth (Surrey) bound to Thomas Hollyday, for Maryland in 1683. Somewhere I read that 15 years old was a customary age for immigrants from England at that time so I "loosly" estimated that his date of birth could have been about 1667.
    No records were found of the birth of his first three children, Grace, William and Daniel (Jr) but they were named in a deed dated Nov 10, 1710 (MSA, Land Records Liber E, fol 15) The birth dates of his other 5 children are all listed in the parish records of St John's Church and they are Elizabeth, b. Dec 6, 1709, John born March 1, 1712/12, Winifred born Apr 4, 1714, Anne born Mar 1, 1716/17, and Mary born May 1, 1719 per transcript of St John's parish records, Md Hist Soc)
    All I know about Daniel, Jr, is that he was born before 1710 and was living when his mother made her will in 1746. His wife was named Elizabeth. He was listed with his father on a list of taxables for the Lower Piscataway Hundred in PG Co in 1731. On 23 Jul 1735 his father deeded him 182 acres in PG Co called Locust Thickett, which he leased to John Addison. On 17 Nov 1736 another deed of gift was made by Sr. to Jr. In 1739 Daniel Jr leased land called Lett from Charles Carroll of Annapolis for 21 years.
    Elizabeth was living 31 Jan 1746/47 when the inventory of her mother's estate was taken, and it was known that she was married to a Mr. Clancy. She was also named executrix of her father's will written on Jun 2, 1741, with letters of Adm issued to her and she entered into a 200 pound bond on 27 Sep 1742. The last record I found on her was inventory of the estate of her mother naming William Thomas and Elizabeth Clency as relatives.
