ESTES, HEYWOOD, HOLT, HUDSON posted by Joan Ifland on Wednesday, December 31, 1997

Holt/Rockville, Md. Here is all I know, it's new to me so have not searched it myself. 1768 James Holt of Rockville, Maryland deeds to Ambrose Holt in Henry & Lunenburg Counties, Va in 1767. (Ambrose is the husband of Barbery Estes, dau of Elias Estes). Ambrose appears to be a child of Plunkett Holt SR. Plunkett Holt's father was Richard Holt of Old Rappahannock, Va (later Essex. Richard seems to be the son of Robert Holt and Dorothy Heywood Holt from England in early 1640's. Robert had children of David, Richard, Dorothy, Elizabeth. Robert's wife cheated and Robert cheated. Robert took up with Christian Bonnefield and married her but did not divorce Dorothy. Dorothy has children by Edward Hudson while Roberts wife and later married him and had another child. I would like any information on any of these. David the son appears to have remained mostly in MD. He was in Va and returned to Md in 1661 and may have remained there? Richard had land in Old Rappa.Co, Va by 1662 with Edward Hudson. Dorothy the daughter indentured herself for five years to Henry Aubrey. Elizabeth appears to be in VA. David and Christian Bonnefield got into a battle over Robert Holt's will, etc. I have not seen these documents, only been told so room for error. I would like to clarify it. They appear in Crime and Punishment in St. Mary's Co where they were living most of the time. I am very interested in James of Rockville and Ambrose as there is one record of Plunkett Holt leaving his estate in the hands of sons James and Ambrose and I would brothers, or related at least. If not Plunkett Holt's then who are their parents? Ambrose appears on the tithable with Plunkett but this could be a different Ambrose. This family appears to be back and forth from Va to MD as Plunkett's daughter Elizabeth wed John Brashear in Calvert Co, MD in 1695. I am interested in any Holt marriages or any Holt records in MD, any county. Many have found their ancestors through my monthly newsletter "The Holt Link". It costs $20.00 per year and is 8 pages of Holt information each month.
