Pg 262 Cornelius Howard Marr: 1st Cousin, Mary, d/o Maj. Gen. John Hammond & Mary Howard his wife71598 (actually d/o Thomas Roper & Mary who married John Hammond when the dau Mary was about 2 years old)

There are claims that Matthew HOWARD had a daughter Mary who married John HAMMOND. The earliest mention I have found of this is by J. D. WARFIELD in 1905.(S22 J.D. Warfield, Founders of Anne Arundel & Howard Co, Baltimore: Kohn & Pollock, 1905, pg 71, 179) He claimed that since Matthew's son Samuel in his will made a bequest to his "cousin" [nephew] John HAMMOND, Jr., this proved that John HAMMOND, Sr.'s wife Mary was nee HOWARD, the daughter of Matthew. In that the "evidence" as provided by WARFIELD for John HAMMOND having married Mary HOWARD was based on Samuel HOWARD's will, and that the will did not indicate any relation between John HAMMOND, Jr. and Samuel HOWARD, it appears WARFIELD was in error. John HAMMON[D], Sr. married between 26 Oct. 1677 (S25 Thomas Roper Will, MD 5:313-315 FHL microfilm 0,012,843) and 1 Nov. 1678 (S26 MD Testamentary Proceedings 10:315, FHL microfilm 0,012,933) to Mary, widow of Thomas ROPER. As John HAMMOND had sons who married by the early 1690s, she was apparently a second wife.81605

Misc. Notes
p.26 For many years Newtown, being located in the central part of the County, was a center of great activity and ranked next in importance to St Mary's City. An agreement made by John Hammond on 5 Dec 1654, to provide for a Court House for the County Court, also provided that he would furnish “a ferry for the Convenient passage of people over Newtowne River”. (S99: Archives of MD X 410. Apparently the intent of this agreement was that the ferry would operate between the east shore of Bretton Bay and the west shore, which was Newtown Neck, as there is no Newtown River. For other details concerning Newtown see MD Historical Mag, Vol. 50, No.1 & Vol. 51, No. 2)8216
