I received an interesting reply via e-mail to this post. The reply stated:
"I did some work on Talbott a few years ago at the Md. Hall of Records, Annapolis, and the names that you mentioned sounded familiar, so I checked. In my notes, I find a reference to an index to the parish register of ' St. John's Parish, Baltimore County, 1698-1788' ; and there, I find that Sarah Talbott is the d/o Wm. Talbott and Mary, b. 7-7-1733 [which would be the old calendar], and married Joseph Prickett 5-21-1757. I also have an entry '44R' for the birth, and '49' for the marriage, and I don't know what they mean."
"There seems to be a difference between the index to the parish register, and the actual register itself. My notes refer to a microfilm at the M.H.R., # M-416, which appears to refer to the register for the parish. There, my notes indicate that the wife Mary is Mary Roberts; and that William and Mary were married Jan. 30, 1723 [ or maybe 1729] and that she is the d/o John Roberts and Mary, and was born Nov. 24, 1710."
Rootsweb has a Sarah Talbott, b. 7/7/1733 and the d/o William Talbott-Mary Roberts being the wife of Samuel Day (b. 3/11/1730, d. 1789) on 2/25/1752 in Baltimore, MD. What is curious is the four children that are listed were all born by 1756. Conceivably, this would have allowed her to marry Joseph Prickett in 1757.
If anyone has any information on this, it would be appreciated.
