I've been looking at this Talbot Maryland group and it appears that I may have passed on some bad information.
It appears to me that the Margaret (who is sometimes called Quinton, sometimes Edwards, who married John Nicks and was mother to Phoebe Nicks) was actually Margaret Hambleton.
Here's my thinking on it:
Walter Quinton Sr. and Joanne Hampstead (2nd marriage for Walter Sr was Alice Maglowlen) had two children in Talbot, MD.
These children were Elizabeth Quinton who married Edward Hambleton in 1701 and Walter Quinton Jr who married Sarah Guinn.
There is no evidence I can find that Walter Quinton Jr and Sarah had any children together. Sarah Guinn had previously been married to William Bowrey and William Anderson. Sarah Guinn and William Bowery had Elizabeth Bowery who married an Earle. Sarah Guinn and William Anderson had William, John and Ann Anderson. When he married Sarah Guinn, Walter Quinton Jr. became stepfather to Sarah's children.
Getting back to Walter Quinton Jr's sister Elizabeth Quinton Hambleton, in Edward Hambleton's will of March 2, 1713 (proved Dec 10, 1716) Edward leaves three of his five children to the care of their uncle, Walter Quinton. The three children were named Margaret, Edward and Sarah.
I would love to know if anyone has Walter Quinton Jr's orininal will because it appears to me that whoever did the abstract of it left out a coma which transformed the children Margaret and Edward into Margaret Edward. Or I suppose it's possible that Margaret had a brief marriage to someone named Edward before her marriage to John Nicks.
Walter Quinton Jr. may have adopted these kids as Margaret does show up later being called Margaret Quinton. Of couse her middle name may have been Quinton since her mother was one.
Margaret was born to Edward and Elizabeth Hambleton Aug 22, 1704 at St. Peters Parish, Talbot Co. MD. This is the same parish where Walter Quinton Sr. died in 1705.
This is clearly the same Margaret mentioned in Walter's will since the land left to Margaret in his will of 1728 is later sold by John and Margaret Nicks.
For those researching Barbados Quinton connections, the name Hambleton may be a tie between Walter amd Barbados. In 1679 a John Hambleton was listed as a soldier who did not appear for Muster Roll in Barbados.
I would be happy for your thoughts on my theory,
