pg. 12: "Judith Mattingly Turner. When Walter Pake entered the righ ts for
fifty acres for each of the immigrant Mattingly family (citing Land R ecords,
Liber DD, folio 106) (See Document III), the daughter, Judith, was li sted
as Judith Turner. A search of records of the various Turner familie s in
the Province give cause to speculate about Judith's place among them.
"Thomas Turner, who died in 1662 (citing St. Mary's Co., MD, Wills , Liber
1, folio 167 (1662)) left money to the priest, and money for Mass fo r one
William Johnson (deceased husband of Elizabeth Turner, [Thomas'?] dau ghter).
Among legacies was a tract of land called "St. Winifred's." Anothe r tract,
"Little St. Thomas," was given to his wife, Emma (Langworth) Turner . Luke
Gardner was the overseer for the Will. Children, besides Elizabeth T urner
Johnson, were Thomas and Mary.
"In 1696 another Thomas Turner, presumably the son of the Thomas w ho died
in 1662, died (citing St. Mary's Co., MD., Wills, Liber 7, folio 27 9 (1696)
leaving his wife, Elizabeth, and three children, Thomas, Johua and Mo nica.
Legacies to the children included the tract, "St. Thomas," to the son , Thomas;
the tracts "Audley's End" and "Part St. Thomas" to Joshua; and the tr act "St.
Dorothy," to Monica. In 1719 Cezar Mattingly sold "Mattingly's Hope " in
Charles County to Thomas Turner.
"It is interesting to note that in 1720 Thomas Turner is administr ator of
the estate of Joshua (citing St. Mary's Co., MD., Accounts, Liber 3 , folio
234 (1720). It can be speculated that Thomas was the brother of th e deceased
Joshua who died intestate and that he left no wife or children. Also , that,
if married, his wife may have been Judith Mattingly. Judith's nephe w was
Thomas Mattingly III who died in 1774. We find the children of Thoma s Matt-
ingly III possessing the properties listed in the foregoing records o f the
Turner family. Thus, of the children of Thomas Mattingly III, Edwar d poss-
essed "Edley's End" and "St. Winifred's"; Clement had "St. Dorothy" a nd
"Part of Great St. Thomas"; Leonard had "Audley's End" and Thomas I V had
"St. Thomas." Since all of the tracts left by Thomas Turner (d. 1696 ) and
left to his children, Thomas, Joshua and Monica, are later in the pos session
of the children of Thomas Mattingly III (d. 1774), a family connectio n may
be presumed; and, as already noted, Judith Mattingly Turner was the a unt of
Thomas Mattingly III."

p. 68: "In his will (citing St. Mary's Co. Md., Wills, Liber 14, fol io 222,
(1714)) of 1714, Thomas Mattingly II bequeathed 500 pounds of tobacc o to his
daughter, Judith Parker. No other records are available about Judit h except
with regard to her administration of the estate of one Benjamin Clark.

she was given as Judith Clark, with Robert Cole and Thomas Mattingl y as her

petitions were presented in court by Robert Parker and Judith, uxor e ius (?)
("his wife"), administrators or executors of Benjamin Clark, deceased . An
inventory of the estate of Benjamin Clarke was taken August 16, 170 9 (citing
