Father:Thomas Martin III (a 1679 - )
Mother:Janette / Janet Edgar (a 1680 - 1741)
     COL James Martin I was born a 1705 at Scotland. He was the son of Thomas Martin III and Janette / Janet Edgar. COL James Martin I immigrated in 1725 to Virginia. He married Mary Downes, daughter of George Downes I and Margaret Mitchell, in 1726 at Maryland.10 COL James Martin I died on 12 Jan 1747/48 at Worcester Co, Maryland. His estate was probated on 3 May 1748 at Worcester Co, Maryland.
      James Martin, second husband of Mary Downes, was the cousin of her first husband Robert Martin and was Robert's business partner in the mercantile trade. When James came to America to settle Robert's estate he married Mary. He was a member of Snow Hill Presbyterian Church. He operated a ferry over the Pocomoke River at Snow Hill, MD from 1730 until 1740 and devoted a portion of his time to agriculture.

From 1731 until 1740 James served as a Somerset Co, MD justice; he held other local offices until 1742. By 1740 he had achieved the social standing of a gentleman. The first court for Worcester Co, MD was held in 1742, and James was elected to the 1742-1744 Assembly in the Lower House representing Somerset Co, MD. He was then appointed the first High Sheriff of Worcester Co, MD, an office he held from 1742 until 1745. James served in both the Somerset and Worcester Co, MD militias. He owned 1,460 acres in Worcester Co, MD -- 350 acres he purchased and 1,111 acres managed for his stepchildren. His holdings included five acres of Allen's Luck in Worcester Co, MD and lots 11, 17 and 18 in Snow Hill, MD.

At death he had 1,117 pounds current money, 10 slaves, a servant, 24 books and a horseboat. His 12 Dec 1747 will left his dwelling plantation and personal property, other than that specifically bequeathed, to his wife Mary for life; the plantation was to go to his son Thomas upon Mary's death. He noted sons Thomas, William, James and George leaving the latter three his property in Snow Hill and bequeathing the latter three and his daughter Elizabeth a slave each. Two of the slaves thus given -- Jethro and Candis -- were mulattos. Executor: his wife Mary. Witnesses: John Neill, Patrick Allison, John Done.

John Martin II1,2,3,4,5,6,7

M, ID# 2086, (a 1752 - 1792)
Father:CPT John Martin I (1716 - b 4 Aug 1763)
Mother:Eleanor Dashiell (1730 - )
Charts:John Satchell Martin * lineage
     John Martin II was born a 1752 at Worcester Co, Maryland. He was the son of CPT John Martin I and Eleanor Dashiell. John Martin II married Parmer Satchell, daughter of Southy Satchell and Sarah Kendall, c 7 Sep 1785 at Northampton Co, Virginia. John Martin II died in 1792 at Northampton Co, Virginia. He was buried at 'White Hall', Northampton Co, Virginia. His estate was probated on 11 Dec 1792 at Northampton Co, Virginia.
      In Sep 1785 John Martin posted a fifty pound bond for a Northampton Co, VA marriage license with Peter Bowdoin as security.

John owned lot 48 in Snow Hill, MD. He inherited lands known as Double Purchase, Addition to Double Purchase, and Whittington's Meadow from William Whittington V through William's son John Rousby Whittington.

John appraised the estate of Caleb Teackle on 10 Oct 1786 at Northampton Co, VA. Adminstration of the Teackle estate was granted to Edmund Custis of Accomack Co with John Wilkins (O.P.) and Thomas Kendall as securities. Appraisers of the Northampton CO estate were John Winder, John Haggoman, Ellison Armestead and John Martin, and appraisers of the Accomack Co estate were Thomas Jacob, Edmund Bayly, Americus Scarburgh and John Teackle.

When John Darby's estate was probated on 8 Dec 1789 in Northampton Co, VA the appraisers at Oldtown were Ellison Armistead, John Lewis Fulwell, John Martin and John Haggoman. When the estate of Grace Bowdoin was probated, John Winder, John Martin, Nathaniel Holland and James Lyon were named appraisers on 11 Sep 1792 at Northampton Co, VA.

In 1826 in response to an inquiry from John's son Thomas, the court wrote to Thomas stating circa 1792 William Whittington VI filled a bill in Chancery Court stating William had a contract with his father John Martin for land devised to John, but John Martin died in 1792 before the funds were paid and the resulting bill was passed to John's orphan sons; thus their mother Parmer Satchell executed a deed to William Whittington in 1799 for said land, thus ending an ownership issue begun in 1769.

Family tradition was that John lived at "White Hall," the Kendall-Satchell-Whittington estate in Northampton Co, VA, but it is unlikely he did. During John's life time there was only a short seven-year window after John's 1785 marriage into the Satchell family, who owned the estate, and before his early death at age 40 in 1792 when John could have been associated with “White Hall.” However, this researcher questions the concept of John living at "White Hall" and the Martin family never owned “White Hall.” The estate was owned by John's brother-in-law William Satchell I (1744-1794).

In his will John's brother-in-law William Satchell bequeathed his son William “the plantation where my mother Sarah Satchell dec'd formerly lived, together with land purchased of Joseph Dalby, and the land purchased of John Kendall containing 658 acres.” The Kendall 659 acres is presumed to be White Hall plantation. John Kendall was likely the John Kendall born ~1707 and died before 1763, but our John Martin and John Kendall also had no family relationship before John Martin married John Kendall's niece.

This researcher theorized upon John Martin's early death in 1792, his wife Parmer Satchell Martin -- taking her sons James age ~6 and Thomas age ~1 – likely went to live at "White Hall" with her older brother William and his wife Mary. William and Mary survived for another one and two years respectively, leaving their daughter Sarah an orphan at age 16. The estate passed to William's son William junior in 1794, and Parmer and her two sons likely continued living with her nephew at the home. William junior married in 1796 and started a family. Parmer faced financial pressures given that she never remarried and was forced to sell land inherited from her husband to the Whittington family in 1799. By 1806 Parmer died and by 1811 – 1812 her son Thomas, and perhaps her son James, was living and working in Alexandria, VA. Thomas maintained a close and loving relationship as he continued to correspond with his Satchell and Martin cousins on the Eastern Shore in the 1830s.

In 1823 William's son William Satchell II left "White Hall" plantation to his wife Elizabeth for life and then to their daughters. In 1836 the Satchell heirs sold the 680-acre plantation to Charles Stockley; Stockley sold it six years later to Victor A. Mapp. The Kendalls and Satchells were related to the Stockley and Mapp families respectively through intermarriage with the Matthews family. The home is no longer standing but was located at tract 52 in the Machipongo area, east of Mattawoman and west of Ramshorn Bay -- the same tract where Martin's Landing was located (no further information.)

     Parmer Satchell was born c 1752 at Northampton Co, Virginia. She was the daughter of Southy Satchell and Sarah Kendall. Parmer Satchell married John Martin II, son of CPT John Martin I and Eleanor Dashiell, c 7 Sep 1785 at Northampton Co, Virginia. Parmer Satchell died in 1806 at Northampton Co, Virginia. Her estate was probated on 12 Jan 1807 at Northampton Co, Virginia.
      Parmer Satchell was singled out in her mother's will to inherit more than her other siblings supposedly because of the depreciation of Parmer's money due from her father's estate, an estate settled 25 years before, but the allocations may have related more to an impending marriage. Parmer acquired a riding chair and horse; feather bed, sheets, blankets, and quilt; hammocks; five table cloths; four Queens china dishes; a dozen plates and six metal plates; and six silver table spoons.

Parmer was named after her grandfather William Kendall III's step-father Rev Samuel Palmer and after her aunt Palmer Kendall, however Parmer Satchell's name was always spelled with an R with the exception of in her father's will.

In 1798 Parmer was noted as living in Snow Hill, MD. Parmer's Nov 1803 will left all her property to her two sons; the will was proved in 1807. According to Moody Miles Parmer Satchell's will included: "In case either or both of my sons James Parmer & Thomas Littleton shall hereafter be dissatisfied with my management of the estate of my deceased husband, or the estate of Miss Nancy Martin deceased as their administratrix or with the management of my said sons' estate as their guardian, and shall ever attempt to recover from my securities in either case any damages they may conceive they have sustained thereby it is my will and I do hereby direct my executor or administrator to indemnify my said securities for whatever damages they may sustain. I give all the residue of my estate to my sons James Parmer and Thomas Littleton to be equally divided between them. I appoint Charles S. Satchell to be my executor. Signed, Parmer Martin. Witnesses: Margaret Boggs, Sarah Satchell, Edmund Watson and Will Satchell. Administrator William Satchell. Appraisers: George Boggs, John Scott, William Dalby and John Simkins. No further administration records."

John Miles Patterson1,2,3,4,5,6

M, ID# 2092, (a 1724 - 1765)
     John Miles Patterson was born a 1724. He married Susanna Lanphier, daughter of Thomas Lanphier II and Elizabeth Going, a 1749. John Miles Patterson died in 1765. His estate was probated on 15 Aug 1768 at Fairfax Co, Virginia.
      John Miles Patterson was an Irish apprentice carpenter to William Bromley who was responsible for the interiors of John Mercer's large home Marborough. In 1754 John purchased a file at Ramsey and Dixon's Alexandria, VA store and was noted as a joiner living in town. In 1755 John began working as an overseer of General George Washington's slave carpenters at his Mount Vernon estate.

John easily found work in the city where he built two schools and repaired the courthouse. The presence of servants and slaves in his home indicated a degree of financial success, but John had some problems with runaway servants.

John was subsequently chosen as the overseer or manager of the first remodeling and expansion of Washington's home. He was a steady, conscientious, thorough worker. As undertaker of the remodeling he was responsible for the soundness of the structure as well as the fine carpentry work; he organized the work, ordered materials as required, oversaw the workers, and maintained a schedule toward completion. He also served as paymaster of the estate. John's work was more than satisfactorily completed in 1759. The salary enabled him the following year to purchase two adjoining lots at the south corner of King and Fairfax streets in Alexandria.

John sailed to Ireland on a ship owned by Alexandrian Stephen West with important family papers to claim the 1200 pound Lanphier family inheritance in Cork Co and was lost at sea. John's will provided for his wife to inherit a modest estate of two developed Alexandria lots, two cows and a calf, two yearlings, six old books, house furnishings, joiner's tools she sold for seventeen pounds, and services of a female servant and a male servant named James Jackson, and three female slaves -- two of them girls. When recorded in 1770 in Fairfax Co, VA his estate inventory included an unfinished set of drawers, wool and cotton cards, a quilting frame, and one small and three adult female slaves.

George Downes I1,2,3,4

M, ID# 2093, (c 1645 - c 1737)
Mother:Margaret (Unknown) (a 1620 - )
Charts:John Satchell Martin * lineage
     George Downes I was born c 1645 at Scotland. He was the son of Margaret (Unknown). George Downes I married Anne Bosman, daughter of William "Will" Bosman / Bozman I and Bridget Panter ?, on 12 Jun 1677 at Somerset Co, Maryland. George Downes I married Margaret Mitchell, daughter of George Mitchell and Margaret (Unknown), c 1683 at Somerset Co, Maryland. George Downes I died c 1737 at Worcester Co, Maryland. His estate was probated on 23 Jan 1736/37 at Worcester Co, Maryland.
      George Downes, one of the first settlers on the eastern shore of Maryland, was first noted as living at Back Creek, Manokin, Somerset Co, MD between 1663 and 1666. In 1670 he received a land patent but where the land was located is unknown as yet. A 1677 census index, the year George first married, noted his registering his cattle mark in Somerset Co, MD.

In Oct 1682 George purchased Double Purchase, a large tract of land first developed in Mar 1661 and originally owned by Randell Revell and Ann Taft; Double Purchase was in the neck between the Manokin River and Back Creek. George also owned 200 acres called Downs Lott which was on the south side of Manokin River, Westover District. The 1685 Somerset Co, MD Rent Roll, a land tax roll, noted George with 200 of 5,800 acres of Part of Reville planted in tobacco. After 1685 he received 250 acres of Mitchell's Choice and Improvement from his father-in-law which he gave to his children Robert, Margaret and Sarah.

In his 25 Feb 1720 will Samuel Morris, a shipwright from Somerset County and the son of Samuel and Sarah Morris, left a legacy (among others) to Margaret, the daughter of George Downs. Morris also bequeathed to his parents a sloop "Sarah" which was under the management of Michal Downes, George's son Mitchell Downes.

A 1723 reference to George Downes living in Munney (Monie) Hundred, Somerset Co, MD and taxed as head of household notes dependent taxable men over age 15 named Tobie and Bendoe, who because of the lack of a last name are likely slaves but could have been free mulattoes or blacks.

In a division of Somerset Co, MD land, our 8th great grandparents Thomas Dashiell and Elizabeth [Mitchell] Dashiel, their children George Dashiell senior and Priscilla Dashiell, and Thomas Dashiell's former sister-in-law Isabel [Mitchell] [Dashiell] McClester and her husband Joseph McClester conveyed 250 acres to our 8th great grandparents George Downs and Margaret [Mitchell] Downs on 5 Dec 1729. Margaret and Isabell were sisters. This land was likely the 250 acres called Mitchell's Choice and Improvement which Thomas Dashiell received from his father-in-law George Mitchell and which he gave to his son George Dashiell.

George Downs and his wife Margaret gave their daughters Margaret and Sarah Downs one-fourth of the tract known as Mitchells Improvement on 26 Dec 1729 in Somerset Co with the stipulaton if either married then the other would inherit the whole.

George attended the Church of England. In his 15 Aug 1721 will written in Somerset Co, George gave personalty to sons Mitchell George Downes and Robert and daughters Margret, Betty and Esther. To 5 daughters, viz: Elizabeth Bennett, Anne Covington, Mary Martin, Sarah Downes and Priscila Derickson, he gave 10 shillings each. To wife Margaret executrix and heirs the residue of his personal estate. Witnesses: Robert Jones and David Evans (deceased at date of probate).

     Margaret Mitchell was born a 1665 at Somerset Co, Maryland. She was the daughter of George Mitchell and Margaret (Unknown). Margaret Mitchell married George Downes I, son of Margaret (Unknown), c 1683 at Somerset Co, Maryland. Margaret Mitchell died c 1742. Her estate was probated on 4 Oct 1742 at Somerset Co, Maryland.
      Well-reputed author Clayton Torrence in Old Somerset on the Eastern Shore of Maryland reported Margaret Mitchell was the daughter of George Mitchell and Isabel Higgins. However George and Isabel were not married until Sep 1668 and if Margaret was born in 1669 she would have been age 14 at her marriage, highly unusual for marriages in this social strata. Although there was a court case on the Eastern Shore about a wealthy daughter who was married at age 12 for her inheritance. Nevertheless this researcher concluded Torrence likely did not know about George's first wife Margaret who married George before Aug 1666 and that his daughter Margaret was likely his first wife's daughter possibly born in 1665, which would have made her age 18 at her marriage.
