http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/MDSTMARY/2011-11/1321647076 From: C Greenwell <cgreenwell01@gmail.com> Subject: [MDSTMARY] William Thorne (d.1737) Date: Fri, 18 Nov 2011 15:11:16 -0500 Hi List, I am looking at the family of William Thorne (d. 1737) and wonder if anyone has information on his daughter Mary (b. abt 1712). I am trying to figure out who she married. Here is what I have on this family: Decendants of William Thorne 1.WILLIAM2 THORNE (Thomas1) was born in 1675 in Annapolis, Maryland. He died on 22 Nov 1737 in Charles County, Maryland. He married MARY GILLAM in 1690 in Annapolis, Maryland, daughter of John Gilliam and Mary Jones. She was born in 1672 in St Mary's County, Maryland. She died in 1737 in Charles County, Maryland. William Thorne and Mary Gilliam had the following children: i. ABSALOM3 THORNE was born about 1690 in Charles County, Maryland. He died in 1735 in Charles County, Maryland. He married ELIZABETH WAKELIN about 1728 in Charles County, Maryland, daughter of Richard Wakelin and Catherine MNU Wakelin. She was born about 1680 in Charles County, Maryland. She died before 25 Mar 1761 in Charles County, Maryland. ii. JOHN THORNE was born in 1696 in Charles County, Maryland. He died before 10 Jun 1749 in Charles County, Maryland. He married SUSANNAH MNU THORN about 1744 in Charles County, Maryland. Note: Some say that Susannah is Susannah Swann dau. of Samuel Swann. I show this Susannah married to a Mr. Wheeler in 1743 when her fathers will is probated. Could Mr. Wheeler have died and she remarried? iii. WILLIAM THORNE JR. was born in 1700 in Charles County, Maryland. He died after 11 Sep 1766 in Charles County, Maryland. He married MARY SWANN in Charles County, Maryland, daughter of Thomas Swann and Elizabeth Cottrell. She was born about 1721 in Charles County, Maryland. She died after 1788 in Culpeper County, Virginia. iv. BENJAMIN THORNE was born in 1702 in Charles County, Maryland. He died before 09 Jun 1766 in Charles County, Maryland. He married ELIZABETH BURCH about 1722 in Charles County, Maryland, daughter of Thomas Burch and Leah Noe. She was born about 1706 in Charles County, Maryland. She died after 1791 in Charles County, Maryland. v. JAMES THORNE was born in 1705 in Charles County, Maryland. He died before 06 Mar 1767 in Prince George's County, Maryland. He married SUSANNA BURCH about 1730 in Prince George's County, Maryland, daughter of Thomas Burch and Leah Noe. She was born about 1714 in Charles County, Maryland. vi. ELIZABETH THORNE was born about 1711 in Charles County, Maryland. She married ISAAC SHEMWELL before 1737 in St Mary's County, Maryland. He was born before 1695 in Sussex, England. He died after 1775 in St Mary's County, Maryland. vii. MARY THORNE was born about 1712 in Charles County, Maryland.
