Burial: (2) In the walled burial ground located a short distance below the mansion on the terraced side, "Belair," Prince George's Co., MD. (2) 1818: Called several times on Caroline Calvert of Riversdale and appeared to be "getting encouragement." Her mother Rosalie looked upon him as a "very handsome young man, although not very lively, but of good conduct and excellent character." She noted that he was from the best families of MD on both sides, but the possibility of a match did not suit her "because his father has nothing except his plantation, with nine daughters (of whom not a single one is married yet) and two other sons." Nothing came of the courtship. (2) 1828: Was so deeply in debt that he was threatened with legal action by his creditors. His father paid him $12,000 for a part of Enfield Chase and a part of Ample Grange he had previously purchased and on which payment was due in an attempt to help. At the same time, he permitted his son to continue to cultivate the land so that he could gradually buy the property back with the profits earned. (3) Was the last to hold the homestead "Belair."
