I'm looking for the origins of a Thomas GERMAN (or JARMAN) who was
living in Calvert County, Maryland, as early as 1680. Was he the same
Thomas GERMAN who was indentured in Bristol in 1662 and bound for
Maryland? Or was he a younger man? In 1680 he recieved a small payment
from the estate of Izaccy VANTREES (appearantly a matter of debt not
kinship). Thomas GERMAN was still living in Calvert County about 1708
when he and a Peter MADRING were the co-owners of a small parcel of
land. Peter MADRING died about 1718; an estate for Thomas JARMAN is not
yet found. Possible sons, John JARMAN and Robert JARMAN, were probably
born in late 1670s or early 1680s. About 1730, they moved from Calvert
County to Queen Ann's County, Maryland, where John JARMAN died 1756.
Signing John JARMAN's estate inventory as next of kin were Ann EMORY and
Ursley SAUNDERS. One record is found of an Ann JARMAN in Calvert County
in 1713. Robert JARMAN moved to Craven County, North Carolina in 1734
and died there in 1762.
