The major source of my Bayne information was obtained from the same source as my Hays, Lewis and Milton information: Robert P. Moore. Robert P. Moore is a very thorough and experienced genealogist from Lexington KY who I began corresponding with in late 1980s and into the 1990s. He has compiled an extensive work on our common Bayne family. This manuscript, Bayne of Maryland, Virginia, and Kentucky - 1989, is the exclusive source of the information I have listed below.


____________ Bayne


1.     Ralph, arrived in Maryland circa 1634 with that states first group of settlers. When he died in 1655, he owned about 1500 acres of land.

2.     Walter, born circa 1616 (probably England), married Eleanor/Elinor ______. Walter arrived in MD in 1637 and returned to England about 1658. While in England, he married Eleanor _______, then returned to the province in 1666, bringing his daughter Judith, his son John and Eleanor with him. Burke's Peerage states that Eleanor was the daughter of Thomas Weston, but some sources indicate that is proven incorrect in the MD archives (although I have not seen this reference). Walter served in the Maryland State assembly in 1641-1642 and 1650-1651 while living in St. Marys Co. Walter moved to Charles Co MD around 1660 and died there in 1670. His estate included 2800 acres of land. Eleanor died circa 1701.


Walter Bayne


The children of Walter and Eleanor/Elinor Bayne were:

1.     Edith/Judith, married Matthew Hill.

2.     John, born circa 1662 (probably Charles Co MD), settled in St. Marys Co MD where he served as High Sheriff. He may have had a first wife, perhaps Mary Warren (but unproven), who was the mother of Walter Bayne. After this marriage, John definitely married an Ann, widow of Thomas Gerard II of Westwood MD (who died in 1686) and who was possibly--but not proven--the daughter of Henry Hawkins. The children of this union were Ann and Ebsworth. In 1688, John Bayne acquired a tract of land called Irving in what is now part of Prince Georges Co MD. This area is now known as Oxon Hill and is located next to the Apple Grove Elementary School. An early Bayne cemetery was established on this tract of land and is where a number of descendants of John Bayne are buried. John represented St. Marys County in the Maryland legislature from 1694-1696. At his death, John Bayne held the military title of Captain (British) and owned 2,450 acres of land and had 17 slaves and 18 servants. John died circa 1701 probably on a trip to England. Ann Bayne died circa 1702/1703 in Prince Georges Co MD.

3.     Thomas.

4.     Elinor, married (1) John Stone (son of Gov. William Stone), (2) Hugh Tears and (3) John Beale.

5.     Elizabeth.


John Bayne


The children of John and Ann Bayne were:


1.     Walter, (whose mother was possibly Mary Warren but certainly not proven) born 1682 MD, married Martha Hawkins, died 1754 Prince Georges Co MD. Martha was the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Marshall) Hawkins.

Hawkins information: Again, there is no conclusive proof that John Hawkins was the father of Martha. John was the son of Henry Hawkins. John died by 1705 in Prince George's co MD. Nothing more is known about him. Henry Hawkins, father of John, appeared in MD records before 1666, was an extensive landowner (2775 acres at his death in 1699 in Charles Co MD) and frequent member of the Maryland legislature during the period of 1689-1698. Henry registered his cattle mark in 1669. Henry married twice: (1) Eleanor _____ and then by Aug 1682 (2) Elizabeth, widow of Francis Wyne. Henry's will was written 18 Oct 1698 and was probated 12 May 1699 (WB 6/Pg. 310).

Marshall information: Elizabeth (Marshall) Hawkins was born 15 Apr 1667. Elizabeth's father was the immigrant William Marshall of the "Marshall Hall" family of Charles Co MD. William was born circa 1607 in England and died circa 1673 in Charles Co MD. William came to MD in 1640 and there married Katherine, widow of Thomas Hebden. They settled near the head of the Wicomico River were they owned 1,075 acres at his death in 1673. William and Katherine had three children: William (1658-1698), Joshua (d ca. 1702) and Elizabeth (born 15 Apr 1667).


2.     Ann, married Thomas Dent 1685, died 1725.

3.     Ebsworth, born 26 Jul 1689, married (1) Catherine Fowke (daughter of Gerald Fowke), (2) Kendrick Wheeler (daughter of Richard Wheeler).



Walter Bayne


The children of Walter and Martha (Hawkins) Bayne were:


1.     Ebsworth, born 1719, married Susannah Middleton, died circa 1793 Prince Georges Co MD. Susannah was the daughter of Thomas and Penelope (Hatton) Middleton. His will was written in 9 April 1792 and was probated in Prince Georges Co MD on 26 Nov 1793. Per "18th Century Papers", Susannah died in 1784.

2.     Walter, born 1721, married Winifred __________ (widow of Pryor Smallwood).

3.     Thomas, born 1728, married Elizabeth Marlowe.

         Genealogical and historical research I conducted.

         Bayne of Maryland, Virginia and Kentucky by Robert P. Moore, 176 Valley Rd, Lexington KY 40503. This work is dated 1989 and was obtained in approximately 1993. Robert is an accomplished Genealogist who is interested in the Moores due to his relation to the Murphys. He has been a tremendous help to me in providing detailed information on the Moores, Murphys, Miltons and Baynes. Before Robert retired in the mid 1990s, he published a series of translations of Soviet military books for the Department of Defense and before that had been a professor of the Russian language.

         Bean Family of Maryland by Margaret Bean Langley. Bob Moore obtained most of the information on the Maryland generations of this family from the research of Margaret Bean Langley, as given in her book The Bean Family of Maryland, published by the author in 1984 and available in the libraries of the Montgomery Co. Historical Society and the St. Mary's Co. Historical Society. Bob has not personally verified any of that information through research in original documents, and the author did not herself cite documentation for her conclusions.

         Per Dianne Parfitt [ as of 3/2009], the marriage of Walter Beane and Meakey Wade, 22 Oct 1785 appears in the following publication: Maryland Records Colonial, Revolutionary, County and Church from Original Sources by Gaius Marcus Brumbaugh, M.S., M.D. Copyright 1915. Composed and Printed by the Waverly Press by the Williams & Williams Company, Baltimore, MD, USA Volume 1 Pgs 97, 162 (Marriage Licenses).
