From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, p. 400:

"Patuxent John Dorsey's father was Edward Dorsey, oldest son of Hon. John and Pleasance Ely. In 1694 he was a mariner upon board of 'The Good Hope,' under the command of Captain Richard Hill. His wife Ruth was unknown, but she may have been the traditional 'Lady Hill'--daughter of Captain Richard. Edward and Ruth had only two sons."

Ruth married Edward Dorsey, son of Honorable Capt. John Dorsey of "Hockley-in-the-Hole" and Pleasance Ely, in 1698 in Maryland, United States. (Edward Dorsey was born about 1678 in Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States) and died in 1701 in South Patapsco Hundred, Baltimore (Anne Arundel), Maryland, (United States).)
