  • Notes 
    • "Mary Kittamaquund, daughter of the Tayac (Paramount Chief) of the Piscataway Indians, was born in Maryland probably about 1631. Her father ruled over as many as 7,000 people between the Potomac and Patuxent Rivers. Following about six months of dialogue and study with Jesuit Missionary Father Andrew White, Mary’s father converted to Christianity and was baptized on July 5, 1640. Soon after February 15, 1640/1, Mary too was baptized, and her father sent her to the English settlement called St Mary’s City, near the mouth of the Potomac River, to be educated by Governor Leonard Calvert and his sister-in-law, Margaret Brent. Mary married Giles Brent, brother of Margaret Brent, before January 9, 1644/5." [Roberta Estes, citation details below.]
