I am researching my NEWBOLD roots in Sussex County Delaware and Worcester County Maryland in the 18th Century. One of my "disconnects" is the appearance of a Thomas NEWBOLD in the record in Worcester and Somerset County Maryland in the 1790s. I cannot solve who this individual is connected to.
There is a Thomas NEWBOLD mentioned in the Worcester County Maryland Land Records for 1789 - 1791. The mention was not as a grantor or grantee, but as a witness to a land action. A Thomas NEWBOLD is recorded getting married to a Polly Taylor in 1798 in Worcester County. A Thomas NEWBOLD appears on the 1798 Tax List for Somerset County, and on the 1800 Census for Somerset County. The only NEWBOLD I am aware of that lived in Worcestor or Somerset County after about 1770 is Smart NEWBOLD, a son of Thomas NEWBOLD Jr., son of the original Thomas NEWBOLD, both of Somerset County Maryland. Smart NEWBOLD died between April 1785 [date of his Will] and Feb 1786, when an estate inventory is filed by "Esther NEWBOLD", presumably his wife. A guess would be that this Thomas NEWBOLD in the 1790s is a son of Smart NEWBOLD, who named his son after his father and grandfather. But I do not have a copy of the Will to see if Thomas is mentioned.
Would greatly appreciate any information regarding NEWBOLD surname in Worcester County in the late 18th Century, or early 19th Century.
