William DITTO of Baltimore County, MD born by 1721
Posted by: Ron Cofiell (ID *****1174) Date: September 12, 2002 at 04:34:15
  of 327

Seeking identity of William DITTO who was born by 1721, as indicated by the 1737 tax list of Baltimore Co., MD. I suspect that he was the (only?) son of James DITTO and Christiana WRIGHT (born c. 1705-1707?). Christiana was d/o William and Hester (ENLOES) WRIGHT, and it's plausible that she would have named her son after his maternal grandfather. She was married by 3/9/1723/24 when named as Christiana DITTO in her father's will. (However, some abstracts I've seen of that will show her name as Christiana WRIGHT.) I suspect that Christiana and James m. by about 1721-1723. Christiana m. Thomas GADD 1/22/1732/33. Administration bond on his estate was posted 2/19/1738/39 by Christiana GADD with William GADD (the deceased's brother?) and William DITTO (Christiana's son and the deceased's stepson?).
