The Shipleys of Maryland, 1968, a study of the descendants of Adam Shipley, of Yorkshire, England, who came to Annapolis, Maryland in 1668. David A. Lovejoy provided the following information and documentation about Adam Shipley. In 1660, the total population of Maryland was only 12,000. Immigrants from England were settling on the Severn River near Providence, and the area began to become quite important as a center of population, and property incentives were established to encouragesettlement in the colony. It was at this time that Adam Shipley (1645-50 - 1696) came to America. Adam was the son of Hugh Shipley, a 'Gentelman' grantee of 2d charter of the Virginia Company, 1609. He arrived in Providence, Maryland from Yorkshire, England in February of 1668. Adam was transported with nine young men by John Pawson, a merchant from Yorke, England. The other men were Christopher Shawn, John Browne, John Fish, Thomas Mason, William Barton, Richard Flint, Richard Pattereson, Thomas Wood and John Dixon. Adam Shipley 'performed his time or service' (probably an apprenticeship) to pay for his transportation, and by 1675 had received the 'fifty acres of land due him' under the incentive plan. He then settled down to the serious business of acquiring land. By 1687 he had acquired 1,000 acres of land. Adam married Lois Howard (1655 - 1725) in 1676 and they settled in Anne Arundel County
