Alexander Warfield, third son of Captain Richard Warfield, was a surveyor, and on the committee of extending Annapolis. He was born in 1677 and died in 1740; married Sarah Pierpont, daughter of Francis and Elizabeth Pierpont, who held an estate upon South River. Alexander Warfield was one of the executors of his brothers-in-law, Captain John Howard and Amos Pierpont, sole heir of the latter. Alexander Warfield's children were all baptized at 'All Hallows.' His three daughters, Rachel, Elizabeth, and Catherine, inherited slaves and money, while four plantations were divided among the four sons; Samuel received 'Benjamin's Discovery' and 'Warfield's Addition,' while 'Venison Park' of 1300 acres was given to Alexander and Absolute. The homestead 'Brandy' was left to his youngest son, Richard.
Richard Warfield married Sarah Gaither, daughter of John and Agnes (Rogers) Gaither, of 'Bite the Biter.' Agnes was the daughter of Captain John Rogers of Prince George County.
