  • Notes 
    • Planter and householder. Literate. Called "Mr." After the death of his parents when he was five or six, he was raised by his father's friend Luke Gardiner.

      His second wife Elizabeth Slye was a daughter of Robert Slye and Susanna Gerard. Susanna Gerard was a daughter of early Maryland immigrant (and Edward I descendant) Dr. Thomas Gerard and his wife Susanna Snow. But more interestingly in connection with American history, Susanna Gerard's second husband, following the death of Robert Slye, was John Coode, one of the three leaders of Maryland's Protestant revolution of 1689 (and also a shadowy and malign figure in John Barth's 1960 novel The Sot-Weed Factor). Susanna's sister Elizabeth Gerard was the wife of Nehemiah Blackiston, another of the leaders of the 1689 uprising, who was a son of regicide judge John Blackiston. Her sister Mary Gerard was the wife of Kenelm Cheseldine, the third of the revolution's leaders. And finally, her sister Frances Gerard was, in the fourth of her five marriages, the third wife of Col. John Washington (1633-1677), great-grandfather of George Washington.
