Maryland conducted an extraordinary census in 1776 [that] listed everyone, male and female, adult and child, by name and included their age. People are listed by the "Hundred" (a political, military, and census subdivision of a county) in which they lived, so it's possible to locate them within a certain part of the county. Unfortunaty, this census does not list all counties or all Hundreds within counties. It is also, unfortunately, not organized by family but is simply a list of males and a separate list of females. Other useful records of the time include a list of militia members as of 1776, a tax list of 1777, lists of signers of the Loyalty Oaths of 1778, and another census of 1778, taken together to separate Tories from Whigs, and another tax list of 1783, taken to finance the War.

On May 30, 1690, John Gootee, Sr., and Margaret his wife deeded to John Gootee, Jr., several tracts of land including "Insley's Point," "Bowbunck," and "Callis.:

On May 4, 1699, John Gootee, Jr., made his will and it was probated August 7, 1699. He devised all of his real estate to his father and mother, John and Margaret Gootee. His father, John Gootee, was named as executor.



Joseph Gootee, Sr., planter, made a will dated January 4, 1716, and it was probated March 13, 1716 (Wills 14, 319)
. The abstract of his will shows that he devised "Callis" his dwelling plantation to his wife, Ann. It also named John, his eldest son, and sons Jacob, Andrew, Joseph and youngest son John. The abstract also named daughters Elizabeth Shorter, Mary Robinson, Ruth, Rosannah, Triphena, Lucy and Elinor.

INSLEY (129)

On June 11, 1669, a 50 acre tract of land on Hungar River was surveyed for Andrew Insley; it was called "Insleys Chance." Patent Record, Liber 6, Folio 27, shows that Andrew Insley was transported into the Province of Maryland in 1669 and was in service until 1667. He married Margaret Jones whom he transported in 1668 (Pat. L11 F507).

Dorchester Land Record 5 OLD 125 dated November 19, 1698, names Andrew Insley and Elizabeth, his wife. Apparently, Andrew married a second time. In deed 5 OLD 125 Andrew and Elizabeth transferred property to their son-in-law, Michael Todd, cordwayner alias shoemaker, and their daughter Margaret Todd, his wife. This same deed named Joseph Goutey (Gootee), son-in-law of Andrew and Elizabeth.

In Dorchester Land Record 2 OLD 163 dated July 13, 1722,
Mary Insley, daughter of Andrrew Insley, is shown as the mother of George Hooper.

Andrew Insley made a will dated April 14, 1699, which was probated August 2, 1699. In the abstract of his will he named his wife, Elizabeth, sons James and William; daughter Mary; son-in-law Michael Todd and his wife Mary (probably intended to be Margaret).

GRIFFITH (XX)

In 1684 a 200 acre tract called "Griffiths Chance" was surveyed for Henry Griffith; it was located on the west side of Cone Creek (Nanticoke Creek). He later had several additional tracts patented.

Dorchester Land Record 5 OLD 140 dated September 1, 1699, shows that Henry Griffith married Elizabeth Tassell, the widow of Francis Tassell.

Dorchester Land Record 5 OLD 108 dated February 1, 1697/8 sows that Henry Griffith had a daughter, Elizabeth, who married Walter Cemey.

Henry Griffith, planter of Dorchester County, made a will dated February 22, 1708, which was probated August 9, 1709. In his will he named sons Samuel, John, and Abraham; daughter Sarah Griffith (Wills Part II - 12, 223).
