  • Marriage (1): Ann Dorsey

  Research Notes:

I am assuming that "Major John Hammond" is this individual. Needs verification.

From Historic Graves of Maryland, pp. 156-157:

"On September 27, 1727, the freeholders of Queen Caroline parish, then a part of Anne Arundel county, met at the parish church and 'made choice' of Henry Ridgely and John Howard as churchwardens; Thomas Wainright, John Dorsey son of Edward, John Hammond son of Charles, Orland Griffith, Richard Davis and Robert Shipley as vestrymen. ...[M]ost of these worthies were landowners in this section..."

From Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, p. 58:

"In 1694, Major Dorsey was upon the committee with Major John Hammond, Hon. John Dorsey, Captain Philip Howard, Major Nicholas Greenberry and John Bennett, to layout town lots and a town common for 'the town of Proctor,' or Annapolis."

  Noted events in his life were:

• Received: part of 4 plantations bordering his own dwelling-plantation on Elk Ridge from Major Edward Dorsey, 4 Jan 1701, Baltimore (Anne Arundel then Howard), Maryland, (United States). "…for disposing of goods and chattels for advancement of our children after death." These 4 plantations were apparently to be held jointly by Major John Hammond, Captain Charles Hammond and Edward Dorsey.

John married Ann Dorsey, daughter of Major Edward Dorsey [Jr.] of "Dorsey" and Margaret Ruth Larkin.
