I believe Robert Doyne (my ancestor) was Protestant, but his brother Joshua of St. Mary's Co., was Catholic. The following information is in the book Early Charles County Maryland Settlers, 1658-1745" by Marlene Strawser Bates & F. Edward Wright:

"Doyne, Robert. Wharton Doyne and William Doyne, two orphans of Robert Doyne, 14 June 1692. (Ct.&Land:Q#1.54)"

"Doyne, Joshua. Deed of gift, 17 June 1697, to his eldest son Dennis Doyne. Plsantation where he now lives, 200 acres on Nanjemy Creek. (Ct.&Land:C#2.239)"

Doyne(s), Dennis, Nanjemy. In his will he left to wife Jane, ex. plantation at Nanjemy; also 200 acres (unnamed). Mentions brothers William, Jesse and Ethelbert. (Will:6.81; 23 Feb `1697; 6 April 1698) (Inv.:17.18; 4 June 1698;...) Legatees: William Doyne, Ethelbert Doyne. (Acct:18.163....C1699)"
