Wright-Briscoe: Although Dr. Briscoe's youngest son has been listed as "Samuel" in birth record and a few times in church notations, since the name of "Walter" has appeared more frequently, will hereafter refer to this colonial pioneer as Wr Briscoe. In 1755 a list of freeholders of the parish who voted on the matter of allowing communicates of the new church to draw lots for the pews shows the name of one Samuel Briscoe.
He later moved to Virginia, perhaps about the same time his brothers Dr. John Briscoe, IV, George and Robert became some of the early settlers of the Valley of Berkley, afterwards Frederick County. It is in this area that "Piedmont" one of eiscoe family's estates, was established by Dr. John Briscoe, IV.
Walter was born in Virginia in 1771, however his other son Stephen and his daughters, who are mentioned in his will, were evidently born in Nelson Co, Kentucky. The exact date that Walter and Elizabeth Briscoe emigrated to Kentucky is not ke only existing definite record is Walter Bricoe's will dated Apri 1 1783, June 28, 1785, Nelson Co, Kentucky, leaving his entire estate to his wife Eizabeth, his son Walter, and his son Stephen. If his sons should die, then instructions were left for their portions to pass to his daughters. His wife Elizabeth was appointed as his Executor; "in case she should die before she shall make a will, then I appoint Thomas Brown and Jacob Beeson as my executors."
According to a CD, he died by drowning in the Salt River.

(George Dent needs to be verified as the son of Peter Dent, as well as who he married.
Child of George Dent is:
CAPT JOHN DENT, b: 1645 in Yorkshire, England d: 1712 in St. Marys Co. Maryland. He married Mary Hatch in St.Marys.
Capt. John Dent (1645-1712) immigrated to Maryland in 1661 from Yorkshire, England. He inherited the lands of his uncle Thomas Dent, circa 1630 of Gisborough, Yorkshire, England. Under the will in Charles Co. Maryland, which was executed innd proved in 1708. He owned other estates besides. John was Commissioner and Justice of the Pease, 1679, 1680, 1685 for St. Marys Co. Maryland. He served against the Indians at Susquehanna Fort, 1681 and was Appointed Captain of Chaptico Hundred 1689, Captian of the Foot in 1694. Appointed by Willian and Mary Commission from King Charles II of England and a member of the Kings Council for Maryland. John Dent was one of the earliest settelers of the Province of Maryland in Coolsprings,Charles Co. Maryland.
He was well established as a planter by Sept. 1666, when he entered his cattle marks at court in Charles Co. His early days in the Province were spent in Charles Co. near his kinsman, but he eventually resided in the nothern portion of St. Marys Co. near Charlotte Hall. As early as 1681, he was involved with Josias Fendall, former Governor of the Province, and Capt. John Coode in their attempt to overthrow the rule of Lord Baltimore. They failed at that time but were successful in 1689.
Apparently Capt. Dent discovered the healing qualities of his spring, "Cool Springs" , and word soon spread about its powers and the fight was on between the Dents, the Church and the State over the use and ownership of the spring. In Novem8 The Lower House ordered that a committee be formed to purchase 50 acres for the use of Cool Springs and if the owner objected, then to exercise thr rights of eminent domain. So it went.

1690: Acquired considerable estates under will of John Harrision, Charles Co.Maryland
1708: Styled Captain
1679 to 1685: Justice of St.Waryes Co.Maryland
1689: Captain of Chaptico Hunderd

Children of JOHN DENT and MARY HATCH were:
1. John Dent, Jr, b: 1674 in Chaptico Hundred, St. Mary's Co. Maryland;d: 1733 in Trinity Parish, St. Mary's Co. Maryland
JOHN DENT, JR., first surviving son of Capt. John Dent and Mary Hatch, was born about 1674 in Chaptico Hundred, St. Marys Co. Maryland according to deposition made in 1727. At the time he declared himself to be 53 years.
Neither he nor his brother George Dent participated in the political life of the Province, because of their ultra-liberal views and Lord Battimore regained his Province in 1715 so the conservatives or Proprietary Party in St. Mary's Co. were able to control the social and political stage. The Dents retired ot their plantations and farmed.Upon John death his son John Dent III devided the entire estate between the four sons, namely, John Dent III, Hatch Dent, Michael Dent and Benjamin Dent. The land " Dent's Inheritance" was eventually divided up amoung the respective heirs and became the seats of this branch of the Dent family. The concentration of the family within this small area which became part of Trinity Parish at its organization fostered a number of intermarriages among couisns which was more noticeable in this branch than the decendents of Judge Thomas Dent. (Ref. The Maryland Dent's pg.114-115)

2. PETER DENT b: 1678 in St.Marys Co, Maryland
Peter Dent returned to England to attend school at Jesus College, Cambridge on November 13, 1700, where he was when his father died and was left land if he ever returned to settle.

3. Michal Dent b: 1680 in St.Marys Co, Maryland
4. Mary Dent b: 1684 in St.Marys Co, Maryland
5. Lydia Dent b: 1686 in Ye Cool Springs, St.Mary's Co., Maryland, m Samuel Turner. He died October 29, 1746 in Turner's Forest, Charles Co., Maryland
Children of LYDIA DENT AND SAMUEL TURNER were:
i. Samuel Turner, b: Abt. 1707; d: 1764 in Charles County, Maryland; married Verlinda McPherson in Maryland
ii. Edward Turner, b: Abt. 1709, d: 1772; m Eleanor Wilson. Eleanor died in St. Mary's County, Maryland
iii. Ruth Turner

v. John Turner
6. Anne Dent, b: 1688 in St.Marys Co, Maryland
7. Abigail Dent, b: 1690 in St.Marys Co, Maryland
8. Christain Dent, b: 1692
9. George Dent, b: aft 1696; d: 1750
GEORGE DENT was the younger son and the disobedient son of Capt John Dent, but his father did not disinherit him with five shillings which was usually the custom of the day, but left him two plantations, namely " Haphazzard " and "Freeston. George married twice, first Elizabeth Short then Mary ___. His widow Mary remarried October 26, 1751.

Besides his country seat on the Najemoy, he maintained a town house in Annapolis, the capital and social center of the province, and well-stocked plantations on the Mattawoman in Prince Georges Co, and another stock farm at Portobacco Clifts.

From Sarah Browder: In 1957 Bible in possession of Keith Compton, Clayton, NC, will 1770 St. Mary's Co, MD, another family Bible in poss. of Jane Harrison Clagett; deeded land by father in 1737; on 25 May 1754 Matthew Compton, planter and wife, Rachel, conveyed to MatthewMartain (all of Charles Co) for 7123 pounds of tobacco a portion of tract known as "Gisborough", land passed down to Comptons by Margaret Dent, daughter of Thomas Dent of St. Mary's Co, who married Edmund Howard 26 may 1681, then of Somerset but later of Charles Co; they being grandparents of Rachel Howard Compton, the land lying in Charles Co being 156 acres. On same date, 25 May 1754, Matthew Compton and wife Rachel, for 1898 pounds of tobacco the amount of 50 acres from "Gillsborough", "Gisborough" being 164 acres. On 1 Dec 1757, Matthew of Charles Co, conveyed to William Compton, planter, for 6000 pounds of tobacco "Wilton" of 149 acres.

(Vol. 2, #1191)
He received certain land grants 1733 in Charles Co, Maryland.
________
1733, Dec 15: will of William Stevens Howard, planter, Charles County, gave to daughter Rachel, wife of Mathew Compton, personalty. [This does seem be referring to Matthew Compton Jr, since in the will of Matthew Compton, 1770, St Mary's Co, he names, among others, his wife Rachel. He left to Barton, Alex. and Edmund H, dwelling plantation of "Wornout", son Stephen a portion of that property, estate divided equally between Matthew, John, Susannah, Barton, Alex., and Edmund H. Witnesses were Robert Slye Wood and Henry Morris and Samuel Briscoe.

Will dated February 1770, refers to his land called "Worncoat," which he specifically leaves to wife Rachel during her widowhood, leaving his entire estate to her "unless she marry." He provides that the land shall fall to son Stephen if he has heirs; if not, to Matthew if he has heirs; if not, to John, if he has heirs; or to Barton,, or to Alexander, or to Edmund Howard, whichever has heirs. The will shows that of his six children three are under age and neighter of the other three had children at the time of the making of the will. Matthew Compton signed his will in his own hand before witnesses: Robert Slye Wood, Henry Moris, and Saml. Briscoe. The probate was made in St. Mary's Co on the 3rd day of Sep 1770 in the presence of Rachel Compton, the widow, and the three witnesses. No son Zachariah was named in the will.
