There is a footnote in the book "Early Manor Plantation Houses of Maryland" by H. Chandlee Forman, 1934: "Brookesby's Point, 350 acres surveyed in 1680 for John Brookby, of which later John Marriott possessed 290 acres and Thomas Abbrix 60." Brooksby's Point (the name was spelled both these ways) was built soon after 1680 near the Severn Crossroads in Anne Arundel County.
I'm not a member of the family, just noticed that James is the earliest one you have mentioned in Maryland.
