  1. 2.  John Tant was born before 1645; died before 12 Nov 1702 in St. Mary's County, Maryland.

    Notes:

    First recorded in 1673, an immigrant servant; free later that same year. A "taylor" in 1675, a planter by 1676, with one slave, later four slaves and one servant. Dr. Lois Green Carr's records (citation details below) call his wife only "Margaret", but she notes his their household also contained "Patrick Blomfield, son of John Blomfield."

    His will of 17 Oct 1702 bequeaths to his son James and heirs, personalty, and also confirms to James and heirs the estate "Dry Dockett". To son Mark at 18, all of his other lands, except if Mark dies without issue, lands to pass to daughters … and "to Japhaele and Maryeena Blumfield and Ellinor Dickins, personalty". Thus another Bloomfield connection to the Tant family.

    John married Margaret Bloomfield before 1665 in St. Mary's County, Maryland. Margaret was born between 1651 and 1654; died in 1726 in St. Mary's County, Maryland. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
