Elinor Odait Calvert???
Posted by: Richard Colbert (ID *****7152) Date: December 15, 2010 at 11:29:43

Seeking info. on Elinor Odait. Trying to determine if she is wife of Christopher Calvert of Accomack/Northampton counties, VA.

On Oct. 5, 1649, Ralph Barlow was issued a patent in Northampton County for 850 acres for transporting himself and 16 others. Among those who arrived were Elinor Odait,
Robert Parker, Ann Parker, and George Parker.

Christopher Calvert and his wife Elinor were neighbors and close friends of the Parker family. Christopher Calvert and George Parker are mentioned in several documents re: Accomack and Northampton.

Christopher and Elinor had five children: Christopher Jr., Charles, Mary, John, and George. Christopher Jr. was b. ca.
1651/2, Charles b. ca. 1652/3, and Mary b. ca. 1656.

In 1672, 15 year-old Mary Calvert became a servant to George and Florence Parker. In 1674, George Parker died and 17 year-old Mary secretly married Garrett Sipple. (See Chapter 4 of Wenches, Wives & Widows by JoAnn Riley McKey).

In 1708, George Parker, Sr (son of George) mentioned Christopher Calvert's son John in his will.

Is Elinor Odait's arrival to Northampton County with the Parker's a coincidence, or could Elinor Odait actually be
Christopher Calvert's wife?

Any help in solving this question is appreciated.
