Baltimore County was created in 1659 from parts of Anne Arundel, Kent and unorganized territory, and in 1674, Cecil was created from Baltimore.

11 Nov 1665 (Land Office, Annapolis, Maryland, Liber 9, folio 45) "Richard BALL of Baltimore demands land for transporting Mary SMITH, Walter CARY, Joseph FOSTER, George COMBES, Henry SCOLLAR, William HOGGINS, Ralph GATH & Yarrow WILLIAMS…… Warrant ind for four hundred acres dated the eleventh day of November one thousand six hundred sixty five, ret eleventh of May next."

(Provided by Combs Researcher Birdie Totty McNutt)

George COMBS has not been identified; however, the above Richard BALL is the same who was earlier from Lancaster County, VA, son of Col. William BALL, and brother of William BALL, Jr. who married Mary WILLIAMSON, d/o James and Anne UNDERWOOD Williamson, the latter sister-in-law of Archdale and Elizabeth COMBS of neighboring Old Rappahannock County, Virginia. Richard BALL married Mary KINSEY, d/o Hugh KINSEY of , found in the records of Old Rappa Co, Virginia, who d 1667, Anne Arundel Co, MD, named a Sarah CLARK in his will. Note also that the headrights listed by Richard BALL are suspiciously close to those listed by Col. Wm. BALL in 1656 in Lancaster County, Virginia in 1662 which also included a George COMBS.

11 Mar 1678/9 (Balto. Deeds IR; pp. 32-3) Samuel HATTON and his wife Elizabeth Power of Attorney to Charles GORSUCH and James PHILLIPS to convey "Persimmon Point" 400 acres in Baltimore County on Rumley Creek purchased by John HATTON, "which land has - - - come into the hands of Samuel HATTON" to Miles GIBSON.

Samuel HATTON of Talbot County, brother of above named John HATTON (deceased), married Elizabeth, widow of Richard GORSUCH. Richard and Charles are sons of John and Anne LOVELACE Gorsuch, and Miles GIBSON married Ann TODD, d/o Thomas and Anne GORSUCH Todd, the latter sister to Richard and Charles. See below for additional.

The earliest record of Joseph COMBS I of Stafford Co VA is in 1723 with "land that was Michael JUDD'S." Joseph's ancestry remains a total mystery, explaining why so many Michael JUDD records have been added to our Baltimore report… part of our search for Joseph's parents…

by 1682 (WC4:241 Film No.: SR 8264, MSA SC 4341-8225) Francis LOVELACE transported himself, Dorothy LOVELACE, John COMBEST, & Elizabeth DOD (Gibbs)

John COMBEST has not been identified (but see below), and may have been a Combs (or variant spelling) given the connections between the Lovelace-Gorsuch families and Combs-Roe families of Talbot County, Maryland. Former New York Governor Francis LOVELACE was b ca 1621, probably in Kent, England, the s/o Sir William LOVELACE, a Virginia Company shareholder, and Anne BARNES, d/o Sir William and Anne SANDYS Barnes (the latter sister of Sir Edwin SANDYS of the Virginia Company). His sister, Anne LOVELACE, married ca 1628, John GORSUCH (s/o Daniel and Anne HALL Gorsuch), who died in 1649 in Walkern, Hertfordshire, England. Following her husband's death, Anne LOVELACE Gorsuch and some of her children removed to Lancaster County, Virginia, where she is found recorded in 1650 with her brother, Francis LOVELACE, and where also is found Edward ROE who later removed to Talbot County, Maryland, where two of his daughters married COMBS: Elizabeth to William COMBS and Mary to John COMBS.

Anne LOVELACE Gorsuch apparently died in Virginia, but several of her children, including Quakers, also removed to Talbot County. Francis LOVELACE returned to England where, on 14 May 1667, he is referred to as "appointed Governor of New York," in an English warrant to the Ordnance (Calendar of State Papers, Colonial Series, America and West Indies 1661-68, no. 1480, p. 466), and had arrived there by May 1668 to relieve England's first New York Gover, Richard NICOLLS. He remained in office until the summer of 1673 when, while he was in Connecticut on a trip, that New York was lost to a Dutch naval squadron (July 30 - Aug. 9, 1673). Most biographers have assumed that he returned to England, claiming that he died there around 1675. Instead, he was in Baltimore County by 1679, dying testate there in 1684, his will including mention of several of his sister's descendants (see below)

TOLSON, John C. Six children, 30 grandchildren, and 35 great-grandchildren survive Mr. John C. TOLSON, 90 years old, 61 East Randall Street, who died at 11 o'clock Friday morning of general debility due to old age.

Mr. TOLSON was well known in South Baltimore, where he had lived for 12 years. He was born on February 12, 1813, in Stafford County, VA, and was a farmer, but retired about 25 years ago. Since coming to Baltimore, he has made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Lynthie Jewell, on Randall Street.

Besides his six children his widow, Mrs. Jane TOLSON, survives. The children are Mrs. Lynthie JEWELL and Mrs. Maggie Combs, of Baltimore; Mrs. Georgiana HERENDON, of Prince William County, VA; Mrs. Columbia GEORGE and Mrs. Jennie PERRY, of Washington. Mr. and Mrs. TOLSON had been married for 65 years.

The funeral will take place from the late home at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon. Rev. Charles W. FINKBINDER, pastor of Olive Branch Union Evangelical Church, will conduct the service and interment will be made in Cedar Hill Cemetery.
