Research Notes: Husband - Joshua Dorsey of "Hockley"

Patented "Hockley-in-the-Hole" on the south side of the Severn with his brothers John and Edward.

From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, Maryland, p. 56:

"The following record is taken from 'Our Early Settlers.'--A list of our early arrivels up to 1680.

"'Robert Bullen demands lands for bringing over a number of passengers, amongst whom was Edward Dorsey, in 1661.'

"The same record adds, 'Aug. 25th, 1664, patented to him, John and Joshua Dorsey, a plantation called "Hockley-in-the-Hole," four hundred acres.'

"In 1683, this land was resurveyed for John Dorsey, and found to contain 843 acres. 400 acres first surveyed being old rents remaining new, whole now i the possession of Caleb Dorsey.

"Such is the record of 'Hockley' upon our Rent Rolls, at Annapolis."

Ibid., p. 30:
"South-side Severn settlements were increased in 1662. Matthew Howard, who had come up from Lower Norfolk, Virginia, in 1650, with his neighbor and relative, Edward Lloyd, had died before 1659, but his five sons now came. They were Captain Cornelius Howard, of 'Howard's Heirship and Chance'; Samuel Howard, of 'Howard's Hope'; John Howard, of 'Howard's Interest'' all adjoining near Round Bay. Philip and Matthew were on North Severn. In 1664, the three sons of Edward Dorsey, the immigrant of 1650--relatives of the Howards--took up and patented their father's survey of 'Hockley-in-the-Hole.' They were Colonel Edward Dorsey, Joshua and Hon. John Dorsey, prominent leaders in political movements and representatives in legislative measures."

Notes for Capt Joshua Dorsey:
[Ancestors of Abednego Baker by Muriel Schulz.ged]

From Anne Arundel Gentry, pp. 57-58:
When not more than 18 years of age, he with his brother Samuel and Cousin Edward Dorsey were apprenticed on British merchant ships. He, however, relinquished the sea-faring life and settled at "Major's Choice," the parental estate which had been devised to his brother, Samuel. The plantation lay on one of the branches or falls of the Patapsco in what was known as Huntington Hundred, which later fell into Queen Caroline Parish at its organization.

Joshua Dorsey was a communicant of Queen Caroline Parish and occupied pew number one in Christ Church with his brother-in-law, Colonel Henry Ridgely. In October 1711, he was commissioned a Justice of the Peace for Anne Arundel County. He was Captain of the Provincial Militia and when Elk Ridge was organized into a township in 1732, he as Captain Joshua Dorsey of the Elk Ridge Company was made one of the Commissioners. During October 1742 the Lower House sitting in session at Annapolis conducted an inventory of the Powder House and recorded the issuance of certain instruments by the Armourer to several officers. Captain Joshua Dorsey had received "one Trumpet." [Md. Archives, vol. 29, p. 16; vol. 39, p. 125; vol. 42, p. 369.]

His will, written in the presence of Henry Ridgely, Basil Dorsey, Richard Simpson, Elizabeth Ridgely, Ephraim Howard, and Henry Howard, was probated in AA Co., Feb. 6, 1747/8. [Wills, Libert 25, Folio 315.]

To wife Anne during life the dwellng-planation "Major's Choice" of 250 acres, negroes and other personalty.
To son Henry "Dorsey's Angle" of 200 acres and "Dorsey's Hills" 200 acres.
To son Philemon "Brother's Partnership" taken up jointly by the testator's brother John.
To son Joshua "Locust Thickett" of 250 acres, personalty.
To son Nicholas "Huntingtown Quartet" of 250 acres and personalty.
To daughter Rachel Warfield 20 shillings.
To daughter Elizabeth Dorsey 20 lbs.
To daughter Ann Dorsey negroes and other personalty.
To daughter Sarah Dorsey negroes and other personalty.
To son Charles dwelling-plantation at decease of his mother, negroes and other personalty.
Executors - wife and sons Henry and Philemon.

The testator also mentioned his brother-in-law, Henry Ridgely, and his younger sons Nicholas and Charles.

His personal estate was appraised at 1,263/9/6 pounds, including among other personalty a library and 18 slaves. John Dorsey of Edward and Edward Dorsey approved as the kinsmen. An additional inventory was filed at court in Anne Arundel on March 12, 1752, recording a value of 129/4/2 pounds, with Anne Dorsey, Henry Dorsey, and Philemon Dorsey as the executors. It was approved by E. Dorsey and Henry Ridgely "as husband of one of the decease's daughters." [Inventories, Liber 36; Liber 48, folio 234.]

See Anne's Notes for her will.

"Married Elizabeth Worthington and had 7 children: Nicholas Worthington Dorsey, Elizabeth Dorsey Warfield, Lloyd Dorsey, Anne Worthington Dorsey Worthington, Mary Dorsey Dorsey, Joshua Dorsey and Sarah Dorsey Ball (Ref: R-62. However, this source does not credit Nicholas with taking the Oath of Allegiance in 1778.) He took the Oath of Allegiance on March 12, 1778 before Hon. John Dorsey, but Source B-26 (a published list of those who took the oath) mistakenly gives his name as Nicholas Dorsey of Edward. The original Maryland State Papers, Red Book 22, gives his name as 'Nicholas Dorsey, of Josa.', which indicates that Nicholas Dorsey of Joshua took the Oath of Allegiance, and not Nicholas Dorsey of Edward,q.v. Also, Source T-277 states he died in 1780, not in 1792)."

"JOPPA COURTHOUSE PETITION OF 1768

"The petitions for and against the removal of the county seat of Baltimore County from Joppa to Baltimore Town in 1768 are discussed at length in the Archives of Maryland, Vol. 61 (Appendix). Notices were posted in January, 1768 at the door of the courthouse in Joppa, at the church door of St. Paul's Parish, at the church door of St. Thomas' Parish, at the church door of St. John's Parish, at the church door of St. George's Parish, at the door of the chapel of St. George's Parish, at the door of the chapel of St. John's Parish, and at the house called St. Thomas' Chapel in St. Thomas' Parish, by Absalom Butler and sworn to before the Honorable Benjamin Rogers. Notices were printed in English and German. Tabulations indicate that 2,271 voted for the removal of the courthouse, and 901 voted against it. (It should be noted that some signatures are missing due to the disintegration of the paper, and there also appears to be some who signed more than once.) Five years later, Harford County separated from Baltimore County and set up its court house at Bush (Harford Town) in 1774 and at Bel Air in 1782.

This is probably the "Leakin Dorsey" in the following list.

From Inhabitants of Baltimore County 1763-1774, pp. 13-16:

"AN INDEX OF SOME BALTIMORE RESIDENTS IN 1765

The following index was found in the Maryland Historical Society Library's Manuscript Division (MS. 1711) and, even though there is nothing to indicate what the purpose of the index, it was determined that those listed were Baltimore residents circa 1765. This determination was made from the compiler's familiarity with Baltimore families prior to the Revolution and also because this index was found with the remnants of a Baltimore Debt Book for 1765 and 1766. This is not an index to the debt book because the highest page number in the book is 109 while the highest page number in the index is 58. The index is, nonetheless, a 'finding list' for early Baltimore."
[Among those listed are:]

Nicholas Clagett
Nathan Dorsey
Leakin Dorsey
Joshua Lynch
