The underlined M indicates the transcriber was not certain of that letter, thus Doctor COME.

Doctor COMBS was probably Thomas COMBS based on later records (see below). Col. Henry LOWE died 1717, married Susannah BENNETT, d/o Richard and Henrietta Maria NEAL Bennett, Jr. and widow of John DARNELL.

John MANNING was probably the brother of Cornelius MANNING who made a bequest to John MANNING, son of John MANNING, deceased in his will. Later records (below) show that a Mary MORGAN was listed as next of kin present at the estate inventories of both John and Cornelius MANNING.

Henry COLBY has married Mary COMBS, widow, sister, mother or daughter (next of kin) of Simond COMBS who had died by 1716, whose ancestry is unknown, and ditto for his relationship to (Dr.?) Thomas COMBS. Dr. JOHNSON was probably Archibald who is also named in the 1721 will of Cornelius MANNING, Sr., and first name given in the 1719 estate account of John COOD.

Mr. BEALE and Mr. JENNINGS are John BEALE and Edmund JENNINGS of Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

(Provided by Researcher Jerry Clark)

Robert CLARKE was the widower of Sarah COMBS (d/o Abraham COMBS d 1684 in St. Mary's Co MD) who died between 1691 and 1700 (per Combs-Clark Researcher Jerry Clark, source for death year range unknown); and married next Elizabeth (-----). He and William COMBS, Sr. both deposed in the case of Brent NUTHALL:

8 Oct 1721 (MD Chancery Court Records Liber CL, p. 748-50) Deposition taken regarding the right of Brent NUTHALL to title of a tract in St. Mary's Co. called Crop Mannor. (1) Robert CLARKE of St. Mary's Co., age ca. 71, that he very well knew John NUTHALL the elder, the grandfather of Brent NUTHALL, and that he and the deponent were the same age, except that said John was as much older than the deponent as March til November. The deponent would be 71 on the fifth of November next. (2) Levina TWISDEN of St. Mary's Co., age ca. 71, that she knew John NUTHALL, the great-grandfather of Brent NUTHALL and father of John NUTHALL, the grandfather of said Brent NUTHALL. John the great-grandfather lived on land called Crop Mannor about 54 years ago, when she came to this country, and where he died about 53 years ago last July. (3) William COMBS of St. Mary's Co., ca. 50. (4) Charles CALVERT of St. Mary's Co., Gent., age ca. 59, who was son of William CALVERT.

Cotton's abstract states "her sister MILLS," not "my sister MILLS;" and Rodolf SIMON, not Rudolph MAN. Rodolf apparently was a SIMON, the s/o George SIMON/SIMEON, and step-son of Cornelius MANNING based on Cornelius' 13 Aug 1722 inventory (below). The relationship of Cornelius to John MANNING, deceased, has not yet been determined (Cornelius' brother? nephew?). John MILLS is not identified as the husband of Mary MANNING in Cornelius' will, but is in other records (see below).
