Re: Leonard Mattingly, Sr.

In Reply to: Leonard Mattingly, Sr. by William Mattingly of 1992

I had seen the new information in William R. Mattingly's family file just this week (2012) regarding Mary Hayden and contacted Linda Reno directly. William Mattingly had her name as Margaret Monica Monarch (but Monica was her mother) in his family file. This is the information she provided. I had asked in my message if she was denoucing Mary Hayden as the wife of Leonard Mattingly and also cited things at her St. Mary's Co., MD website regarding her being the source of the marriage. As William Mattingly had no other information regarding Margaret Monarch, I had questioned about documentation. Some of this is a repeat of the information by William Mattingly in the prior post.

Linda Davis Reno:
Yes, I am renouncing Mary Hayden as the wife of Leonard Mattingly. The web page you refer to is my own—St. Mary’s Families and yes, it is way, way out of date.

The reference on my page for the marriage of Leonard Mattingly to Mary Hayden should have cited the source as Mary Louise Donnelly, not me. Nevertheless, it appears I was then buying it. For that and for many other reasons, I came to the conclusion that Ms. Donnelly’s books were good for possible clues but not for facts.

These are the reasons I believe the wife of Leonard Mattingly was Margaret Monarch and not Mary Hayden:

Mary Hayden was still being called Mary Hayden in 1775 and by that time Leonard Mattingly had been married and had 8 children.

1775: Admin. accts. of William Morgan, SMC. Payments to: John Eden, Cunningham & Findley & Co., James Buchanan & Co., Francis Knott, Martha Owens, Briscoe & Eden, Hugh Hopewell, Esq., Wm. Fitzhugh, Esq., John Allen Thomas, Mary & Frances Haden (their portion of estate of their father, George Haden). Admx.: Charity Morgan. (Admin. accts. of the Prerogative Court of Maryland, Libers, 67-74, 1771-1777 by V. L. Skinner, Jr.). NOTE: This record is not on CD #206.

Margaret Monarch was the daughter of John Monarch and Monica Aprice. Monica Aprice was the sister of James Aprice, therefore Margaret (Monarch) Mattingly was his niece. (NOTE that many people have her name as Price and even refer to her as Price-Temple).

Will of Monica Monarch, SMC, 2/4/1743-4--2/7/1743. Daughters: Mary and Margaret, personalty. Children: John, Joseph, Thomas, Mary, and Margaret, testator's share of husband John's estate. Execs: Brothers, Edward Price [should be Aprice] and John Temple. Wit: John Buckman and John Bradue. ( Maryland Calender of Wills).

Will of James Aprice, SMC, 2/10/1788-5/13/1789. Wife: Mary, my dwelling plantation called "St. Barbary's" and other tracts of land called "St. Barbary's Addition", "Suttle's Range", "Burch Hanger" (with the water mill), and as much of the pasturage of "Ingsbeth" as will make her a corn field. She is to also have the labor of all of my negroes during her life and the rest of my personal estate forever. Nephew: Benedict Aprice, the remainder of my real estate. He is to also receive my negroes at the death of my wife. To: Margaret and Sarah Mattingly, daughters of Leonard and Margaret Mattingly, one negro of the value of 30 lbs. current money to be paid to them after the death of my wife. Execs.: Wife, Mary and nephew, Benedict Aprice. Wit.: Hanson Briscoe, James Melton, Mary Ann Melton. Codicil, 4/11/1789: Revoked bequest to Margaret and Sarah Mattingly and gave it instead to nephew, Benedict Aprice. Wit.: Hanson Briscoe. (St. Mary's County, Maryland Wills, 1776-1791 by Linda Reno and Joann Humphries). NOTE: The reason was probably that the girls had removed to Kentucky with their father.

Margaret Mattingly was baptized 2/15/1761 at St. Joseph 's RCC by Rev. Joseph Mosley. GP: John Melton and Mary Price (Aprice). (Catholic Families of So. Md. by O'Rourke). I’m not sure exactly how John Melton fits in yet, but Mary Aprice was the wife of James Aprice, uncle of Margaret Mattingly.

Deed to John Tippett from Richard Spalding and wife, and Leonard Mattingly and wife for "Ingsbeth" and "Ingsbeth Resurveyed", 40 1/2 ac., 12/12/1788 (Chr. of SM). (See the will of James Aprice above where he mentions “Ingsbeth.”

Hope this helps anyone that still has Mary Hayden as the mother.
