I have gathered much confusing information About Elinor. First I have her father as alternately Charles Carroll and Anthony Carroll. The dates for Anthony are better as the date of birth for Charles who married Mary Darnell is 1660, some 28 years after the birth of Elinor.
I show she was born in Anne Arundel Co., MD. She was married to John Howard. When she married him is a good question. Some say she married him before 1667 the date of birth for John Howard Jr. The elder John did not die until 1696 making this a problem for her other marriage to John Maccubbin in 1669 at the Quaker Meeting House. John Maccubbin died in 1686, so she could have married John Howard then and not have been the mother of John Howard Jr.
Her date of birth in 1632 is problematic if she is the mother of John Maccubbin's 4 children Sarah, Zachariah, William and Moses born between 1671 and 1681 as she would have been 38+ when her first child was born and 48+ when Moses was born. I've seen a date as late as 1649 which would still give her a chance to have married John Howard first, if their marriage ended in divorce. My notes tell me that there was an incident of some the Catholic Carrolls sons leaving the church and being disowned. Could this have happened in Elinor's case? Recall she married John Maccubbin at a Quaker Meeting and (as a Catholic myself)I know mixed religion marriages were not tolerated until the 1960's
Much to think about
Can someone armed with documentation help me straighten these people and dates out?
I descend from Sarah Maccubbin Griffith Reynolds, dtr of Elinor and John Maccubbin
