I hope this will help you in some way. In the book "Colonial Families of the Eastern Shore of Maryland" Vol. 6 by Henry C. Peden, Jr. and F. Edward Wright page 8 under the "The Arrants Family"...

1. Johannes ARRANTS, b. c. 1717, m. 1st Sarah PHILLIPS on 25 Nov. 1745 ( she d. 9 Dec. 1750) and 2nd Elizabeth VEAZEY, dau. of James VEAZEY, on 12 March 1751 (CESM)

Jean PHILLIPS , of CE Co. d. by Feb 1749 and proved 10 May 1749. Mentioned were sons William SHEARWOOD ( SHERWOOD?), George SIMCOE and Johannes ARRANTS. Witnesses: Edward JOHNSON, Manadon PHILLIPS, Rachel ALRICHS. ( MWB 26:57)

NATHAN PHILLIPS , of Elk River, CE. Co. left a will 24 May 1748 and proved 2 Jul 1748, leaving stock to his wife Jane" ( I know from research this is Jane SIMCOE), "and at her decease to James BOULDEN and Johanes ARREANS ( also spelled Johannas ARREANCES), equally, Execs. not named. The only children named were eldest son Samuel PHILLIPS and grandson John PHILLIPS. ( MWB 25:407) An Admin. account on 14 Aug. 1749 named Nathan's execs. as Johannes ARRUNUST and James BOULDING. ( MDAD 27:168)"

I know this is later than you mentioned, but the Nathan Phillips and Bouldin names might be of help. Kathy Kemp Dobe
