This is the tenth in a series of volumes of family histories pertaining to the colonial families of the Eastern Shore. Most of the families in this volume lived in Worcester County. This series draws from a variety of sources including land records, criminal proceedings, probate records, depositions, bonds and indentures, chattel records, and tax records (if available).
Chapters are included for the following families: Beavens, Bishop, Bowen, Chaille, Claywell, Cropper/Crapper, Ennis, Fleming, Franklin, Gillett, Hopkins, Houston, Hudson, Jarman, Johnson, Kennett, Marshall, Massey, Mills, Morris, Pilchard, Prideaux, Records, Ricketts, Richards, Toadvine, Truitt, Wale/Whaley, and Waters. “Corrections, Additions, and Comments to Previous Volumes” and an index to full-names, places and subjects add to the value of this work.
