See THOMAS JENKINS OF MARYLAND 1670 by Edward Felix Jenkins, O.S.A . (1985);
p. 9: "William Jenkins m. ca. 1718 Mary Courtney, who was probably b . 1696.
These dates make her 22 and William 35 at the time of their marriage , and
that would make her 45 and him 58 in 1741 when their last child was b orn.
She was the daughter of Lt. Thomas Courtney of St. Mary's County an d his
second wife, Mary, possibly the widow Strong. Lt. Thomas Courtney wa s b.
in St. Mary's County (see not under William to the effect that he lan ded
in Md. from the Dove), the son of James Courtney who came to Marylan d in
1637, and d. in St. Mary's County in 1642; and who on May 23, 1639, t here
m. Mary Lawne."
See ibid p. 298: "James Courtney, was brought into Maryland in 163 8 as
a redemptioner through the patronage of Captain Robert Vaughn. He ob tained
the rights of a freeholder the next year when he appeared at court an d ex-
pressed his intentions to marry Mary Lawne, a former maid-servant o f Mis-
tress Margaret Brent who arrived in 1683 with four maid-servants. In asmuch
as James Courtney and his prospective bride both entered Maryland i n 1638,
it was possible that they came over in the same ship and that the rom ance
was culminated during the voyage. On May 29, 1639 in expressing hi s inten-
tions to marry, he stated that there was no precontract to any othe r woman
and that there was no impediment of consanguinity or apprenticeship . He
gave his bond for 5000 pounds of tobacco. He frequently gave his pro xy
to Captain Robert Vaughn during the days of the early Assemblies. N o re-
cord has been found of the settlement of his estate, but his widow was
alive in 1664."
