See THE MATTINGLY FAMILY IN EARLY AMERICA by Herman E. Mattingly , 1975,
p. 44 (in an article on JAMES MATTINGLY d 1745, brother of Luke Matti ngly)
"All the rest of the personal estate was equally divided between " my
other five children," Ann, Monica, Robert, Peter and John. Witnesse s to
the will who later proved it were John Sheircliffe, Jr., Peter Ford a nd
Clement Hill. Peter Ford was the brother of Anastasia who is supposed
to have married Luke Mattingly, brother of James (citing SMC, Md., Wi lls,
Liber 22, folio 239 (1735).
On page 53 is the article on Luke Mattingly for which see his fil e.
"It is speculation that sometime before 1735 Luke married Anastasia F ord,
daughter of Robert and Margaret. Her father in his will (cite below)
written December 27, 1735, mentioned his daughter, Anastasia Mattingl y.
Other connections with the Ford family, and the naming of his daughter
Anastasia, seems to confirm Luke's marriage to Anastasia Ford. If this
be so, Anastasia died sometime before 1744, since Luke married Prisci lla
Knott, widow of George Knott, on November 29, 1744.
(JS: I notice some discrepancies. Not only is it a coincidence t hat
Fr. Mattingly shows Luke as marrying Priscilla Knott on the same da y that they submit the Accounting of Priscilla's late spouse, i.e. No vember 29,
1744, but the date of their marriage is supported by a citation to an
accounting. The date of their marriage is important because we hav e assumed
that Luke's daughter Elizabeth Mattingly, mother of Catherine Spaldin g,
was a daughter of Anastasia Ford Mattingly and was born ca 1746. I f Luke
married Priscilla in 1744, Elizabeth was Priscilla's daughter and no t a
See Luke's notes that Anastasia was the daughter of Robert and Mar garet
Ford. Robert's will is at St. Mary's Co., MD. Wills, Liber 22, foli o 239
(1735) and was written December 27, 1735. A copy of the will is in th e poss-
ession of James J. Sparks, San Carlos, California, and reads as follo ws:
