First Generation

1. Richard1 Wells (John Hotten's compilation of early emigration records lists two persons named Richard Wells, both of whom emigrated from Gravesend, Kent, England to "Virginea" in 1635. The first Richard Wells (pp. 110-114), age 17, embarked in the Assurance, commanded by Geo. Pewsie, Master, as recorded on 24 July 1635. The second Richard Wells (pp. 119-121), age 26, was recorded on 7 August 1635, as "imbarqued in the Globe of London,. Jeremy Blackman, Master." Passengers of both vessels were noted as having "been examined by the Minister of Gravesend, of their conformitie, and have taken the oaths of allegiance and supremacie." (John Camden Hotten, ed., The Original Lists of Persons of Quality; Emigrants; Religious Exiles; Political Rebels; Serving Men Sold for a Term of Years; Apprentices; Children Stolen, Maidens Pressed; and Others who Went from Great Britain to the American Plantations, 1600-1700, With their Ages, the Localities Where They Formerly Lived in the Mother Country, the Names of the Ships in Which They Embarked, and Other Interesting Particulars, 1880; Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., reprinted 1962)) was born in England; he married Frances (--?--); he died circa 1667 in Anne Arundel Co., MD;1 his will was probated in Anne Arundel Co., MD, 31 Aug 1667.1,2

Prior to settling in Maryland, Richard Wells had represented Upper Norfolk County in the Virginia House of Burgesses, which met at the capitol of Williamsburg.

Richard Wells became a large landowner in Maryland, coming to own not only the 600 acre plantation "Wells," but also "Little Wells" (100 acres in Anne Arundel Co.; patented 1663), "Benjamin's Choice" (280 acres in Anne Arundel Co.; patented 1663), "Wells' Hills" (420 acres in Anne Arundel Co., patented 1664), "West Wells" (350 acres in Anne Arundel Co., patented 1664), and "Wells' Neck" (1100 acres in Baltimore Co., patented 1658). He also purchased "The Neck," consisting of 1500 acres on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, for 50 pounds in 1660 from John Langford (Maryland Archives , Volume 57, p. 139).

As a Puritan, Richard Wells stood as a supporter of Oliver Cromwell, the Lord Protector, when, as a member of the Maryland Parliamentary Commission in 1654, he declared himself under Cromwell's authority ( Maryland Archives , (Volume 1, p. 339). After the fall of Richard Cromwell and the reestablishment of Lord Baltimore's proprietorship over Maryland under Charles II, Richard Wells seems to have remained in favor, being appointed as a commissioner and Justice of the Peace in 1657 and again in 1660. He was chirurgeon (surgeon) in Anne Arundel Co., MD. He emigrated circa 1637 (Emigrated from England to Virginia. Richard Wells further emigrated from Virginia with his wife Frances and ten children, into Maryland in 1653. Discounting the possibility of twins, the fact of ten children suggests that Richard and Frances had been married at least fifteen years by this time, which would place his marriage around 1635 and his birth around 1610, making it likely that he was the Richard Wells who arrived in Virginia aboard the Globe in 1635. Further, there is no record of his having transported a wife or children to Virginia. As Harry Wright Newman suggests in Anne Arundel Gentry (Annapolis, MD: published by author, 1971), "The inference is therefore great that he found his wife in Virginia and eleven children were conceived before his emigration to the Maryland Palatinate when in 1653 he claimed land-rights" (p. 498)).3 He was deed on 12 Sep 1637 in Charles River Co., VA (Richard Wells, a Puritan, was granted a 50-acre headright in Charles River County, Virginia, on 12 Sep 1637 (Virginia Patents No. 1, 1623-1643, Reel 1, p. 481). Remaining in Virginia about 18 years, he was elected to the House of Burgesses for the term beginning November 20, 1645, representing the Upper Norfolk Assembly (Colonial Virginia Register, William G. and Mary Newton Stanard, compilers. Albany, NY: Joel Munsell's Sons, 1902, p. 64-65)). He resided in Anne Arundel Co., MD, in 1652.4 He was move in 1653 (Richard Wells moved from Virginia with his wife Frances and ten children, into Maryland in 1653. Discounting the possibility of twins, the fact of ten children suggests that Richard and Frances had been married at least fifteen years by this time, which would place his marriage around 1635 and his birth around 1610, making it likely that he was the Richard Wells who arrived in Virginia aboard the Globe in 1635. Further, there is no record of his having transported a wife or children to Virginia. As Harry Wright Newman suggests in Anne Arundel Gentry (Annapolis, MD: published by author, 1971), "The inference is therefore great that he found his wife in Virginia and eleven children were conceived before his emigration to the Maryland Palatinate when in 1653 he claimed land-rights" (p. 498).

On 6 October 1653, "Mr. Richard Wells Demandeth Land according to his Lordships [Lord Baltimore] Conditions for Transporting these Several persons into this Province to plant and Inhabit there Viz. Himself, Frances his wife, Richard, William, George, John, Robert, Benjamin, Mary, Ann, Eliabeth and Frances Wells his children and Thomas Boone, Henry Symonds, George Hall, Thomas Linstead, Edward Howard and Martha Windwright His servants, being all Transported as aforesaid since June 1653" (Maryland Patent Liber ABH, Folio 347 , Maryland Hall of Records, Annapolis, Maryland).

Lord Baltimore's grant of 600 acres on Herring Creek, was the site on which Richard Wells would locate his estate, "Wells." Newman and others note that, at various times, Richard Wells held office as a member of the Maryland Parliamentary Commission (1654), the Severn Provincial Council, the Quorum and Puritan Council, presiding officer of the Grand Jury of Anne Arundel County, and Commissioner of Anne Arundel County.

Richard Wells became a large landowner in Maryland, coming to own not only the 600 acre plantation "Wells," but also "Little Wells" (100 acres in Anne Arundel Co.; patented 1663), "Benjamin's Choice" (280 acres in Anne Arundel Co.; patented 1663), "Wells' Hills" (420 acres in Anne Arundel Co., patented 1664), "West Wells" (350 acres in Anne Arundel Co., patented 1664), and "Wells' Neck" (1100 acres in Baltimore Co., patented 1658). He also purchased "The Neck," consisting of 1500 acres on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, for 50 pounds in 1660 from John Langford (Maryland Archives , Volume 57, p. 139)). He made a will inAnne Arundel Co., MD, on 22 Jun 1667 ("RICHARD WELLS Senior of the Co. of Ann Arundell in the Province of Maryland, 22 June 1667, proved in Maryland 31 August 1667 and in London 14 November 1668. To my son Richard that plantation I do now live upon at Herring Creek, being called by the name of Wells and laid out for six hundred acres (and other tracts or parcels). To my son George my land in Baltimore County, namely three hundred acres, purchased of Capt. George Goldsmith, called the Planters Delight "being now seated." To my son John that parcel called Langford's Neck, on the N. side of Chester River in Talbot Co., being "pattented" and laid out for fifteen hundred acres, and was purchased of John Langford gent. To my son Robert three hundred and fifty acres called West Wells, lying on the W. side of the plantation I now live on, in Herring Creek Bay. To my son Benjamin that parcel called Benjamin's Choice, being Patented and laid out for two hundred and eighty acres, lying W. of a Divident belonging unto Mr Francis Holland of Herring Creek. To my daughter Martha, sometime the wife of Mr. Anthony Salaway, twelve pence. To my daughter Anne, supposed wife unto Mr. John Stansby, Chirurgeon, twelve pence as a reward for her disobedience. To my daughter Mary, wife unto Mr. Thomas Stockett, three cows to be delivered, after my decease, in the Co. of Ann Arundel, and one hundred pounds of money, to be paid in the City of London within twelve months after my decease. To my five sons all my whole estate remaining, to be divided amongst them, both cattle, goods, moneys in England, tobacco, debts, servants, negroes and all things whatsoever belongeth unto me in Maryland, Virginia, or in England. And they to be my executors. Wit: Francis Stockett, Bonham Turner, the mark of Wm Linckhorne").5

2. Mary2 Wells (Richard1) was born before 1652; she married George Yate circa 1660; she married Thomas Stockett before 1667;10 she died circa 1698;11 her body was interred 21 Jan 1699 in Anne Arundel Co., MD;12 her will was probated in Anne Arundel Co., MD, 29 Mar 1699.11

George Yate was born circa 1640.13 He died circa 1691. His will was probated in Anne Arundel Co., MD, on 11 Nov 1691.14

There were no children of Mary2 Wells and George Yate.
Thomas Stockett was born in Kent, England, after 1623.15 He died before 4 May 1671.16 His will was probated in Anne Arundel Co., MD, on 4 May 1671.16 Nearly all the information presented here on the Ayleworth and early Stockett families (before Captain Thomas Stockett and his emigrant brothers) is drawn from one source, the so-called Visitation of Kent" or "Visitation of 1619" (The Visitation of Kent, Taken in the Years 1619-21, by John Philipot, Rouge Dragon, Marshall and Deputy to William Camden, Clarenceaux; edited by Robert Hovenden, F.S.A.; Harleian Society Publications, Vol. 42; London: 1898). Many of the original visitations, in Latin, were translated and republished by William Berry in his Pedigrees series. This and other visitations were enumerations of the gentry and nobility of England conducted by the College of Arms. Basically, individuals provided and attested to their pedigrees in order to record their rights to use a particular coat of arms. The visitation data are suspect, given the lack of supporting documentation and the tendency of individuals to rely on tradition and to paint the rosiest picture possible of their ancestors.

Thomas Stockett appears in some accounts of early Maryland history. Homer Aylsworth, in Arthur Aylsworth and His Descendants in America (1887), suggests that he and his brothers may have been sons of Thomas Stockett and his first cousin, Frances Aylesworth, of Canterbury, England, who were grandchildren of Lewis Stockett, a member of the household of Queen Elizabeth the First.

Skordas, in The Early Settlers of Maryland (1968, p. 443), says that Thomas, along with his brothers Francis and Henry, emigrated from England to Maryland in 1658, being joined in 1664 by their elder brother Lewis. Skordas, Warfield, and others note that Thomas, a member of the Church of England, served in the lower house of the Maryland Legislature, served as a justice of Baltimore County (1661-1664), and served as Deputy Surveyor General of the Colony from 1670 to 1671.

Harry Wright Newman, in Heraldic Marylandia (1968, p. 147), indicates that Joseph Tilley, a registrar of All Hallows Parish in Anne Arundel County, noted the following in the registry: "About or in ye year of or Lord 1667 or 8 I became acquainted wth 4 Gents yt were Brethren and then dwellers Here in Maryland the Elder of them went by ye name of Collo Lewis Stockett and ye second by ye name of Captn Thomas Stockett, ye third was Doctr Francis Stockett and ye Fourth Brother was Mr Henry Stockett. These men were but ye newly seated or seting in Anne Arundel County and they had much business wth the Lord Baltimore then ppetor of ye Province. My house standing convenient they were often entertained there: They told mee yt they were Kentich Men or Men of Kent and yt for that they had been concerned for King Charles ye First, were out of favor wth ye following Governmt they mortgaged a Good an estate to follow King Charles the second in his exile and at their Return they had no money to redeem their mortgage wch was ye cause of their coming hither."

A brief mention is found of Thomas Stockett in a biographical sketch of the 17th century writer George Alsop. The author notes that Alsop left England in 1658 "to spend four years apprenticed to Captain Thomas Stockett, of Baltimore County, an able and pious man, of whom Alsop spoke with respect and admiration." (Charles Knowles Bolton, The Founders: Portraits of Persons Born Abroad Who Came to the Colonies in North America Before the Year 1701. Boston, MA: The Boston Athenaeum, 1919, p. 67.)

The Maryland Archives mentions Thomas Stockett several times. From 1665 continuously until his death in 1671, he held the office of High Sherrif of Anne Arundel County (Volume 3, pp. 539, 541; Volume 2, p. 155; Volume 5, pp. 4, 28, 70, Volume 51, pp. 312, 328). On February 8, 1667/8, he was ordered to raise 25 barrels of corn and 3800 pounds of meat for the militia in support of their march against the Indians (Volume 5, p. 22). On March 13, 1668/9, he was elected a member of the Burgesses for Anne Arundel (Volume 51, p. 325). In 1670, he was commissioned Deputy Surveyor of Anne Arundel County (Volume 5, p. 81). He emigrated circa 1658 (Emigrated from England to Maryland).17

"... Judge George W. Dickson, a native of Miami County, Ohio, born February 1, 1820. His father, William Dickson, was born in South Carolina, June 3, 1798, and his mother, Mary (Sinks) Dickson, was born in North Carolina, in September, 1800. George W. Dickson spent his youth in his native county, and is a self-made and self-educated man, having become the latter almost entirely after reaching manhood. He was married in Darke County, at Greenville, near Old Treaty, where Gens. Wayne and Harrison treated with the Indians. Elizabeth Delk became his wife February 14, 1839. She was the daughter of Ethelred Delk, a soldier in the war of 1812. Her birthplace was in Preble County, Ohio, where she was born May 4, 1821, and she was reared in that and Darke County, Ohio. Directly after their marriage they moved to Randolph County, Indiana, and eighteen months later, in November, 1840, came to Missouri, crossing the Mississippi River on the day Harrison was elected President. They spent one year in Grundy County, and about the same length of time in Livingston County. In the fall of 1843, they moved to Linn County (now Sullivan), and in 1848 came from there to Putnam County (then Dodge), locating in Jackson Township. Previous to this time Mr. Dickson had served as treasurer of the county, and after coming to Putnam County, he served sixteen years in succession as justice of the peace. He was the second county judge of the county. During the war, in 1862, he was appointed probate judge, and served two years in that capacity. He is now identified with the Greenback party, although formerly he was a Democrat, and during the war was identified with and worked for the Republicans. He located upon his present place in April, 1853, entering 120 acres of land. He now owns 100 acres, forty in timber land and the remainder in meadow and plow. He has raised a family of eight children, six of whom are living: William Dickson, married and in Wilson Township; Henry C., married and living in Jackson Township; Elizabeth E., widow of E. Hodson, of Smith County, Kas.; Ann V., wife of Joseph F. Coppock, of Kansas. Those deceased are Alvina, wife of James L. Johnson, died April 12, 1863, leaving two children, and Charles, who died in September, 1862, in Helena, Ark. He was a soldier in the late war, and served in the Seventh Missouri Cavalry. Judge Dickson became a mason in 1863, and belongs to the Unionville, Missouri lodge. He is engaged in the nursery business, in which he embarked about 1876, and now has about 15,000 trees of different kinds of fruit. His nursery is known as the 'Star Nursery.'"

"On Sept. 8, 1862, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary J. Boss, and to them thirteen children were born, namely: An infant daughter and son, Joseph, preceded the father in death; the living children being Mrs. I. V. Casteel of Lemonville, MO; John H.

Dickson of Agra, Okla., Mrs. Miles Dickson of Lemonville, Mo., H. M. Dickson of Grainfield, Kans., T. A. Dickson of Kansas City, and Mrs. Geo. E. Miller of Newtown.

"Uncle William Dickson served about three and one half years in the Missouri militia during the civil war and was honorably discharged for disability. He was quite proud of his record in this conflict and was one of the members who never drew a pension for the services he so earnestly gave to his country.

"Until a few months ago he had been in his usual rugged and vigorous health, but when the break came his vitality was soon sapped and the end was considered very near. All that medical skill and tender care could do could not stay the hand of death, and on Sunday afternoon the spirit took its flight to the unknown world, leaving eleven children and numerous grand children and other relatives to mourn its departure.

"Interment was made in Bethany cemetery on Monday afternoon, the services being conducted by Rev. J. A. Newton in the presence of a large number of friends and relatives.

"The sympathy of all is extended to the bereaved children and relatives in their hour of sorrow"
