In Reply to: William & Elizabeth, Frederick Co., MD; 1742 by Linda (Noland) Layman of 1060

I am searching for information on William Mears and Elizabeth Webb of Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

What I have:
Rebecca was the daughter of William Mears who was born in 1648 in Talbot County, Maryland and Elizabeth Webb who was born before 1658. They had 3 children:
1. Mary Mears was born about 1670 and died probably before 1721; she married Francis Vizen of Ann Arundel County, Maryland who died about 1721 probably in Anne Arundel as his will was probated there in 1721 naming Joseph West, (Jr.), his brother-in-law, as guardian of his children; the two families attended the same Episcopal Church.
2. Hannah Mears was born about 1670.
3. Rebecca Mears married Joseph P. West who was born in 1670 in Prince George County, Maryland and died after August 25, 1731 on Blackburn Plantation, Bladensburg, Prince George County, Maryland. He married Rebecca 'Vizen' Mears who was born about 1674 in Prince George County, Maryland and died about March 18, 1769 on Blackburn Plantation, Bladensburg, Prince George County, Maryland. They were married November 01, 1695 in Prince George County, Maryland. Rebecca was the sister of Mary Mears, wife of Francis Vizen, hence the confusion with her last name perhaps.

Any help is appreciated, lindajcox3@hotmail.com
