Hi Brenda,
I saw your message at Edelen Genfourm on Giles Blizzard and his will, regarding Thomas Lewis and wife Catherine.

I know you said you had checked all MD info.
Well, I found the following info, you may have it. But just in case you don't.

I'm sure you have a copy of Thomas Lewis' will..
Here is the Pro. Court Abstracts 1685-1701, p 8, of his estate that go along with his will.

Thomas Lewis 14.42 I PG 55.10.0; Jan 16 1696
Appraisers: William Hatton, William Hutchison

Thomas Lewis 19.67 A PG 55.10.0 55.10.0; Jul 3 1699
Payments: Robert Clarke, Mr. Greenfield, John Redman, Daniell Counell, John
Tompson, Dr. Ferguson, Alexander Harbert
Distribution to: widow, 5 orphans [unnamed].
Admnx: Katherine Watkins [widow], wife of John Watkins

So Katherine Lewis remarried to John Watkins.

Apparently Katherine ____ Lewis Watkins died between Jul 3 1699 and 19th Jun 1703, as John Watkins is now married to a Mary, and I could not find anything more on Katherine Watkins.

Will of John Watkins that married Katherine ____ Lewis. I cannot find anything further on him.

WATKINS, JOHN, Prince George's Co.; 19th June,1703; 18th July, 1703
To daughter-in-law Ann Lewis, sons-in-law Thomas and John
Lewis and Edward Eanis personalty.
Wife Mary and son-in-law Richard Lewis, joint, exs.
Test: Henry Acton, Eliza: Marsh, Ann Acton

Giles Blizzard married 1st to Susannah Ocane, they had a dau Susannah that married Nathaniel Magruder.
Giles m/2 Mary Edelen and had a dau Ann that married Rev. John Foster.

There is no Catherien Blizzard to be found.

I think the lease to Thomas Lewis was just that a lease to him and his wife and their son for the life of the son, the usual lease for that time period.

I hope this helps some.
