Our Maryland Heritage, Book 21: The Fisher and Beckwith Families


This text is intended to present the ancestry and descendants of William Thomas Fisher (born c. 1819) and his wife, Eliza Ellen Beckwith (born c. 1820). The Fishers discussed here can be traced back to Martin Fisher, a carpenter who died in Anne Arundel County, c.1740. His line of descent is traced through his son, Martin, Jr. (1738-1815), the progenitor of the Montgomery County Fishers. The Beckwiths discussed are descended from Sir Thomas Beckwith, of Acton (1565-1615), and his son George Beckwith (1606-1667), who immigrated to the Maryland Colony c.1648.
