Re: Edward Mobberly, born 13 May 1696, in MD

In Reply to: Re: Edward Mobberly, born 13 May 1696, in MD by Anne B. Willis of 2268

Sorry, I'm not very good on a computor. Once again....

My husband's line is:
JOHN and ANN(BIGGERS?)
EDWARD and SUSANNAH(?)
SAMUEL and MARY WAGNER
EDWARD and MARY MABRY
EDWARD W. and NANCY B. HILL
MARY JANE and BERRYMAN HALL
SUSANNE HALL and AUGUST ASBURY McDONALD
ESSIE LEE McDONALD and WILLIAM PAUL WILLIS

My research was done at the Maryland Archives. The William and Phoebe story is just that.....a great story by a good storyteller. There are no records in Maryland that would confirm it. Unfortunately once something is printed it tends to become gospel.

John Mobberly and his wife, Ann, are well documented. Judging by the use of the name BIGGERS later, she was probably a Biggers. The name, Ann, was used in that family. John and Ann lived in Anne Arundell Co. (near Davidson now). In 1697, he bought a 127 acre tract in Prince Georges Co. He seems to have been living there in 1708 when he made a "deed of gift" (Neal's Delight) to his five sons (probably this land became Thomas's land. He was the only son who remained in Maryland. John also made a 'deed of gift" to his "now" wife, Elizabeth. (I would like to have documentation of her surname.) John's oldest son John,Jr. married Rachel Pindell (12 Feb 1711/2) and John,Sr. married Susannah, widow of Aaron Scaggs, on 28 Feb 1716. She outlived him and then married Henry Bolton. The second son, William, was whipped in Maryland for Horsestealing. (This seems to have been as a young man. Edward may have been involved...the court did not think highly of him either, but he was not punished for anything.)


Before we leave this time frame, I must note that I found another John Mobberly in St.Mary's Co. No proof, but he may be John's father. (d. 1684..Will Book 4, p.51) Also there was an Edward Mobberly in P.G Co. who was a school teacher. (d. 1761(Box 9, folder 45)...m. Rebecca Griffiths...Children, Edward, Francis, Rebecca. He was possibly a brother of our John.

Edward, the third son, married Susannah. No "de Ruels" are found in Maryland. There is a possibility that she was a Duvall. Mareen, the Hugenot, lived nearby. If so she would have to be a daughter of his son, Mareen the Elder. He went bankrupt. Only his son is mentioned, but he had other children (presumably all daughters.) This Mareen was at odds with his father. The clue to Susannah is possibly her daughter, Elizabeth's Godfather, William Brown(Will Book 1, p.47...Lunenburg, VA)
Edward Mobberly moved first to A.A.Co.,MD (patented land called "I Looked Many Places None I Liked"...now in Howard Co.(?) He then moved again. He and sons William and Clement signed a petition for a new parish of All Saints about 1742...now Frederick, Maryland. Evidently Edward wasn't happy here either. He moved on through Virginia and North Carolina to Fairfield Co., S.C.where he died.
