  Research Notes:

From Wikipedia - Charles Ridgely II. :
6. Capt. Charles Ridgely III "Charles The Mariner" (1733-1790), builder of "Hampton ", who married Rebecca Dorsey (1738-1812), daughter of Caleb Dorsey, Jr. (1710-1772) and Priscilla Hill (1718-1782)."

From Side-Lights on Maryland History with Sketches of Early Maryland Families by Hester Dorsey Richard, Baltimore, Maryland, 1918, vol. 2, p. 213:

"[Hampton] was built in the heart of Captain Ridgely's estate, and the terraced gardens, laid off under his directions, with their clipped borders of English box, still continue as in the days when the gallant officer strolled through them with his young wife, the demure little Methodist, Rebecca Dorsey, of whom the interesting story is told that, while she opened Hampton House with a large prayer meeting, her less pious lord held a rollicking card party in the attic with his fellow-officers! Priscilla, the young sister of Rebecca Dorsey Ridgely, married Governor Charles Ridgely Carnan, nephew and heir of the gallant Captain, who served his country not only as an officer in the Revolutionary War, but also as a member of the Continental Congress in 1776 and who changed his name from Carnan to Ridgely."

Rebecca married Captain Charles Ridgely III of "Hampton", son of Colonel Charles Ridgely II and Rachel Howard of "Hampton." (Captain Charles Ridgely III of "Hampton" was born in 1733, died on 28 Jun 1790 and was buried in "Hampton", Baltimore Co., Maryland, United States.)
