Obadiah Dixon - Caroline Co, late 1700's

I am looking for information on Obadiah Dixon, who lived in the Bridgetown Hundred as of the 1776 Census. He had at least 1 son, Benjamin; Benjamin had a son, Wallace, born in Caroline Co. circa 1790. According to family information, the family was involved in raising and breeding horses, often importing stock from the British Isles. Obadiah was supposedly born in England, and came to the colonies with his family apparently around 1732 (he was allegedly aboard the same ship that carried the 5th Lord Baltimore to the colonies for a brief visit in that year----I am also looking for the name of the ship and a possible passenger manifest). Any and all help on Obadiah --- parents' names, spouse's name, siblings names, children's names, or even the name of the ship he was on, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, one and all!
