Taylor - BALTIMORE COUNTY, MD


Original Research by Gloria Taylor and Martha Mewborn Marble
Additional research, comments and formatting by Ralph Taylor
Revised to 13 September 2013


In 1730 Abraham Taylor bought a lot in New Bern, Craven County, North Carolina and was described as "of Baltimore County". This fact has led research of this family to seek his origins in Maryland.

A note found - in 1733 John Taylor an ancient man had a nephew John Greene

Other Surnames

Of interest is Abraham Taylor lived in the Joppa area which is where Richard Caswell was from.

I noticed the following surnames that appear in Craven, Dobbs, Pitt or Jones;
  • Rhodes (William, Richard, Benjamin),
  • Foy,
  • Howard,
  • Pettis,
  • COWARDS,
  • Slades,
  • Robrts ( Stephen, John, Frances, Lucina),
  • Hatch,
  • Bonds,
  • Frissil,
  • Bakers,
  • Burney

From Baltimore was formed Hartford 1773 , Cecil 1674, Frederick and Carroll Counties. Kent was an original county; might need to be checked.

If there was a Will Book, I could not find it other than one small volume. Most of the early Md Wills are in the Calendar of Wills. The Will of Richard Sr is on the Baltimore Co Archives along with several other documents for Richard.

Will of John Taylor of Baltimore Co “ 5 April 1676 pro 19 May 1676; sons Arthur, Robert, James daughter Eliza, grandchild ie Richard Sims child

    DEEDS

    There is an early Deed Book which I just glanced at for some of the names found in Craven Co. Some of the names in the index. If at some point, we determine a closer look is warranted, will do so.

    Abraham, Anne, Aquilla, Arthur, Benjamin, Diana, Bray Platt, Brian, Charles, Edward, Everard, Francis, Henry, James, Jane, John, Joseph, Heziah, Martin, Michael, Richard, Robert, Samuel, Thomas, William.

    Maryland custom, from the beginning, was to give land tracts colorful names. This fact makes them easy to identify and associate with owners.

    Stopped here as I believe Abraham & Dinah Taylor moved to NC between 1729 & 1733. Other Taylor deeds continue, but do not believe they are of the NC family.

    Notes, Questions

    1720 - Abraham and wife Diana sold land

    1743 - one Abraham still here {rt: Son of Lawrence Taylor?}

    1717 - Abraham to daughter Lettice and husband William Doddridge - this Abraham died in the county and may have been the father of Abraham of Craven Co

    1726 - Abraham and wife Diana sold land

    1719 - Abraham of KE County, blacksmith - sold to John Taylor - John lives there now - in 1732 Abraham {Senior}was dec and John was a devisee - land was in Baltimore Co
    NOTE; I am not sure what KE Co was - Kent?
    Joppa, Md used to be the county seat and a John Taylor lived there

    Abraham was a vestryman at St. John's which was originally Copley Parish in 1693 - there was also a Lawrence Taylor on the {rt: St. George's Parish} vestry. This must have been an older Abraham.
    This is the Abraham who appears in Baltimore County with the 1694 purchase of 100 acres of Ayers Addition and 100 acres of Wainsworth, married Jane Courkin and had sons John & Abraham and daughter Lettice.
