Note H1410 Index
See "THOMAS JENKINS OF MARYLAND, 1670," by Edward Felix Jenkins, O .S.A.
for the following references to Ann Spalding Jenkins on pgs 2-3:
"That Ann's maiden name was Spalding is a family tradition at least
150 years old, as it was written by Henry Jenkins (1781-1869) into his
family Bible record about 1810. I have read the family record in this
still existing Bible. It was, in 1859, in the possession of Henry's
great-granddaughter, Mrs. Beverly (Rut) Bristor of Towson, Maryland . I
have not tried to prove this marriage, but such an effort was made ab out
60 years ago by the late Mrs. Samuel T. (Lydia B.) Brown of Baltimore.
Mrs. Brown, a genealogist of somenote and the wife of one of Henry
Jenkins' grandsons, said she found proof "in old court records" that
this marriage was performed in St. Mary's City in 1669 or 1670. It
is very unfortunate she gave no citation but if she found the record
it should be possible to find it again..."
"Edward Spalding and his wife, Margaret, and two children, and Edm und
Spalding, who may have been a brother, were living in Elizabethtown , VA,
in February, 1623 (reportedly taken from a census record). They are
believed to have come from England in 1619. About 1642, Edward and
Margaret Spalding and two children, then grown, went up to Massachuse tts
where they became the ancestors of the very numerous Protestant Spald ing
family of New England. According to our family tradition, Thomas' wi fe,
Ann Spalding, was a granddaughter of this Edward, by a son left behind
in Virginia. This may not be true, but there is nothing improbable
about it. My experience with family traditions is that they always
contain some truth and are generally more right than wrong."
But see the following reference to the above conclusions as state d in
THE SPALDING FAMILY OF MARYLAND, KENTUCKY AND GEORGIA by Hughes Spald ing,

"Edward Spalding and his wife and two children are the first Spald ings
of whom there is any record, who came to America. They were residin g in
Elizabeth City, Virginia, in 1623. They left Virginia and settled in
New England, and became founders of the New England family of that na me.
"Another Spalding, Edmund, was also a resident of the Colony of Vi rginia
in 1623. It was presumed by some, without any foundation in fact, th at
Edmund came to Maryland from Virginia and established our Spalding fa mily.
This presumption is without merit.
"There is no record of any person by the name of Spalding in Maryl and

In FHL 975.241 F2o, "SOUTHERN MARYLAND CATHOLIC FAMILIES", there i s much
basic information on the Spalding family. There are marriages, bapti sms,
landholding information etc. On page 48 there is information about p roperty
being rented by Thomas Spalding age 53, and his brothers Peter 48 an d James 45.

It is probable that these are nephews of Ann though their father's n ame is not
known at this time. There is another entry on page 48 Elizabeth Spal ding

Electious 30, and Henry Jr., 22. All of the property is in St. Mary' s Co, MD.
