One of the first Swann's in Virginia was William Swann of Southfleete, Kent. William was born at Gravesend, Kent in 1586, the son of Samuell Swann and a descendant of Baron John Swan of Kent. William Swann married Judith Greene, the widow of William Austen, at St. Dunstain's Church, Middlesex, England on April 16th, 1612. William came to Jamestown, Virginia in 1616 and had a son, Thomas, there and then went back to England. William was a stockholder in the Virginia Company and was appointed Royal Customs Collector of Virginia. The Swanns finally settled permanently in Virginia in 1635. William served as Land Registrar and Royal Customs Collector of the Virginia Colony until his death in 1638.
William was granted 1200 acres of land across the James River from Jamestown in Surry County. He purchased a farm which was Jordan's Point and named it Swann's Point, built tobacco planttion, which is still on the maps today. This plantation later was repatented in Colonel Thomas Swann's name after William's death. William and Judith are buried there in the family graveyard. The Swann family Coat of Arms is engraved on the tombs of William and Thomas Swann at Swann's Point and these Arms trace themself back to 1533 when they were granted to Sir Francis Swann of Wye, Kent.
Virginia was going to build a bridge across the James River at this point, but a few relatives persuaded the State to turn Swann's Point into a wildlife reserve. Thomas, the eldest son, inherited the land and became a member of the Virgf Burgesses. Tom's younger brother, Edward, was granted land in St. Mary's Co., MD and moved there in the 1650s. Col. Edward Swann married Susannah Heath and had 10 children. Edward had plots of land all over St Mary's/Charles County, and is presumed to have died after 1666.
States parents were William Swann and Amy Deering.
siblings listed as: George, Sir Frances, Muriel, and Margaret.

Comment: The Compton name appears again about a hundred years earlier in 1516-1636 when a Henry Compton marries Ann Hastings, daughter of Francis Hastings (1514) Earl of Huntingdon of Ashby, Leicestershire, England, and Catherine Pole, Countess of Huntingdon. Curious if it's still the same Compton line. (See note of son John C.)

John C. Compton and his son Mathew Compton both used the Compton family of Northampton, England's seal on documents. The family is in the Earle of Northampton and is listed in Burke's Peerage.
(from Sarah Browder 12/15/03)
JOHN COMPTON (1-1) the first of this family to reach American soil as far as
is known, came to Maryland from England about 1662. CAVALIERS and PIONEERS by
Nugent Vol I p 147 shows a John Compton transported to Mockjack Bay area of
Va near the Severn River by Thomas Williams in Aug 31, 1643. The question
that will probably remain unsolved is whether this is our John Compton or not.
(According to Skordas' "Early Settlers of Maryland" John Compton was in Charles
Co prior to 1664 L. 7 f 490 ).Some will argue that if a person was transported
by someone else then how could he have obtained land so quickly. His first
piece of land was Brathwood, in Charles Co, an estate of 800 acres surveyed
for him was patented 12 June 1665. Also a patent of 200 acres called Boswell
was also issued the same year. So it seems John was not destitute when he
arrived to have acquired over 1000 acres of land. In 1675 he married Mary Clarke,
widow of Robert Douglas and daughter of John Clarke( will dated 12 Aug 1698-
6.177) and probably granddaughter of Robert Clarke (will dated 21 July
It appears John Compton was born in England circa 1629 and died by 18 Jan
1717/18 Charles Co, Md when will was probated.

John Compton -900 acres called Boswell in St Mary's Co (Land Office Patents 7

Point in Charles Co and 1200 acres in St Mary's Co called Eagleton -same
book and page . Edward Swan transported persons in 1662, 1663, and 1664. John
Compton was witness and also stated he was due land by custom of colony for
transporting himself into
Charles Co( Land Office Patents Bk 8 p 460-464. What with closeness of John
and Edward Swan it is only natural that their families would intermarry,
considering the scarcity of those entering the colony at that time. More on the
Swann/Swan family in that chapter.
John Compton's will was made 29 May 1713 and was probated Charles Co 5 March
1718(Charles Co. Accts: L 2. f 447). Heirs given as "eldest son John-2/3 of
land lying both in Charles and St. Mary's counties and 2/3 of estate, both

NOTE: Some records show Henry as the father to John C rather than a brother. So temporarily he has been attached as a brother since the dates do not support that he was his father.
(From Sarah Browder)
Henry COMPTON, Lord Bishop
It is thought by some that he was father of John the Immigrant but it is my
thinking they had to be brothers if KIN. They seem to have similar lifespans
and times-rather contemporaries than father /son. He was supposedly born London

The Dent Family
Perhaps no family of Southern Maryland is better known than the Dent Family, which in the formative years of the Province produced some of the most prominent and outstanding colonial subjects of Lord Baltimore and the Crown. They were conr thier public services, and high military offices.
Thomas Dent, Gentleman (1630-1676)
Thomas Dent was born about 1630 in the Parish of Guisbough, Yorkshire, England, making him less than 30 years old when he arrived in America. Not long afterwards he married Rebecca Wilkinson, the Virginia born daughter of Rev. William Wild his wife Naomi. He arrived in Maryland in 1658. In 1659 he was Justice of St. Mary's Court, St. Mary's Co, Maryland. And on March 26, 1663, Thomas Dent, Gent. entered his rights for transporting John Dent, John Winnie, Constant Stephensen, George Athley, John Venable and himself to be layed out for him by September 30, 1663. In 1664 he was High Sheriff St. Mary's County, Maryland. He was also delegate for St. Mary's County, Maryland.
On May 26, 1673 he applied at the land office in St. Mary's City for additional 600 acres for transporting Jerman Shyn, John Moderman, John Akers, John James, William Rutter, Charles Wheeler, Edward Crouch, Mary Evans, Sarah Caes, Ann Flethizabeth Danset, and John Dent into the Province to inhabit.
Thomas Dent's English background seems to have been from a market town on River Dee in West Riding of Yorkshire, called Dent, and the family derived its name from this town. About 1318 Willielmus filius de Dent deeded land in the villagey for use of Knights Templars, which revereted back to the Dent family - and according to Historical and Archaeological Journal of Yorkshire in 1889 was still held by descendants. A list of freeman records of Yorkshire in 1365 records is name of Willielmus de Dente, parchemener.
The fact that Judge Thomas Dent came from Gisborough in Yorkshire is authenticated by his land patents given the name of "Guisborough", it being characteristic of the Maryland gentry to name their plantations after ancestral estate in old EGisbourough" is a town and parish situated in North Riding - about six miles northwest of Ormsby, the more ancient estates of the forebearers of Thomas Dent. His parentage has been proven by Peter Dent, naturalist and professor of Cambridge University, and is in the Hereld's College, London under Cambridgeshire pedigrees, in 1684.
Thomas Dent established residence in St. Mary's County where most of his children were born and spent their childhood. He was the first alderman of St. Mary's City and a acre of land was patented to honor him called "The Lawyer's Lodgingelso engaged in mercantile pursuits as well as cultivation of the soil. Thomas Dent lived in Aldermansbury Street (now extinct) and his next door neighbor was Governor Thomas Notley.
On September 4, 1663, Thomas Dent was issued a warrant for 850 acres patented under the name of "Gisborough" lying on the east side of the Anacostia River, a branch of the river called Eastern Branch in Charles County standing by a littled Gisborough Bay.
In March 20, 1671 a warrant from the Secretary office ordered a tract of land called "Brothers Joint Interest" layed out in Charles Co. in woods above Piscataway, for William Hatton and Thomas Dent.
Thomas Dent was appointed High Sheriff of St. Mary's and Deputy Surveyor in 1664 and in August 19, 1668 - as a Gentleman of Quorum, he was appointed Commissioner of Peace and represented the County of St. Mary's at the General Assembly in 1675 and perhaps other years. He was engaged with some conflicts with the Indians- and was comissioned to secure 28 barrels of corn and 4,000 weight of meat for the Colonial forces in the Indian campaign against the Susquehanna Indians.

She was the widow of Thomas Greene who briefly served as governor of Maryland.
Mistress Winifred Seybourne emigrated to Maryland in 1638 " who by his title indicated gentle birth and likewise one who had arrived to the discretion to be recognized as a feme sole in matter of ethics and business." p. 215, ...Maryland Palatinate On 30 July 1638 Lord Baltimore personally issued instructions for a warrant of 100 acres Mistress Winifred Seyborne [Seaborne] for transporting herself in 1638 and at the same time a warrant of 100 acres for Mistress Troughan. [Boderbund WFT Vol. 16, Ed. 1, Tree #1313,
Mrs. Winifred Seyborn Immigrated 1638, and afterwards married Thomas Green, Esq., and later Mr. Robert Clarke prior to 1654.
Above notes from WFT coincide with earlier research showing Winifred Seybourne. Dates do not seem to make sense.
See 18 WFT 332 for extensive Calvert family and a different version of this person and the Calvert connection for our family: Helen Calvert the mother of Governor Thomas Green who was allegedly born on the high seas en route to Maryland.

Subject: [MDSTMARY-L] Thomas Greene
There is nothing stated in "The Ark and the Dove Adventurers" to show any family relationship between Thomas Greene and Lord Baltimore's family. None of Lord Baltimore's daughters listed married anyone named Green/Greene.
The Thomas Greene in the book came w/ the Ark & Dove. He had 2 wives: Ann Cox and later Winifred Seybourne, widow of Nicholas Harvey. He was appointed Governor on 9 June 1647 by Leonard Calvert, but in 1648 William Stone became Governor. He was dead by 23 January 1651/52.
The book covers LOTS of his descendants, pp. 112-137. Among the surnames besides Greene: Wheeler, Marbury, Alvey, Simpson, Thompson, Clements, Noble, Hoye, Deakins, Hatton, Frazer, Smallwood, Hagan, Spalding, Hamilton.
Descendants pretty much cover all of Southern Maryland; later lines to Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina.
One descendant #221. Raphael Spalding was the father of the famous Mother Catherine Spalding, founder of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.
Interesting family line, but gives zero on the parents of Thomas Greene nor any marriage connection into the Lord Baltimore family.

William Stevens Howard's will 1733: To daughter Rachel wife of Mathew COMPTON personalty.
The mother of Rachel Howard needs more investigation. William Stevens' brother Thomas was married to an Elizabeth Douglass. William Stevens' first wife was apparently Elizabeth Douglass. The Elizabeth who was married to Thomas was a widow ds married to Thomas in 1714, so she apparently is not one and the same with the Elizabeth Douglass who was the first wife of William Stevens Howard. Sarah Briscoe's first husband died in 1717, but it's possible they had divorced rather than she being widowed. In William Stevens will he left legacy to 4 young children and Rachel, wife of Mathew Compton. Since Rachel was already married and he had 4 young children, assumption is that Rachel was the child of his first wife.
