Tucker Family of Anne Arundel County, Maryland
NAME EVENT DETAIL
****T - Tucker, Sele - Note - for the names of Sele's children, I have, so far, only his will to go by. The daughters names are written like this:
"Elizabeth Mary, Ann, Rebecca and Margaret".
The commas make it clear that there were daughters Ann and Rebecca. The and indicates there was also a daughter, Margaret. Whether there was an Elizabeth Mary or an Elizabeth and a Mary is unclear. There is no comma, but there is an extra space. Because of the extra space and because middle names were uncommon at this time, I am tentatively saying that there was an Elizabeth and a Mary.

This family is not mentioned in the St. James Parish Register.

***Ta - Tucker, Thomas - Since he is the only Mary Tucker child listed on his own in the 1776 census, he is probably the oldest child of Mary. He could be the father of Rebecca Tucker Linthicum.

1 white male, 1 white female, 1 white child, 1 taxable. Source: 1776 Census of Maryland by Bettie Stirling Carothers.
But this suggests that, assuming the white child was Rebecca Tucker, that Rebecca was a very young bride. Or that she was a child of a 1st marriage. But since his 2 younger brothers are, presumably, the 2 males living with his mother, it is probably the former situation.

March 11, 1788. Daniel Bowley, surviving obligee of Lux and Bowley vs Thomas Tucker and John Pownell. We command that the Sheriff take the Defendants, farmers, if found, and keep them, so you can have them before the Justices of our County Court, to answer a plea that they render to Daniel Bowley, 16 lbs, which to him they owe. Issued Apr 16, 1788. The Defendants, at court, are ordered to give special bail, whereupon John Phelps of Anne Arundel County becomes special bail for the Defendants. The Defendants, by John G. Hamilton, their attorney, asked leave to imparle until the next Court, which is granted. At the next Court, namely, Nov 1788, and the Defendants ask further time to imparle, which is granted. At next Court, being March, 1789 Court, the Defendants ask further time to imparle, which is granted. And at August, 1789 Court, the Defendants say that they cannot deny the action of the Plaintiff.

Note - I have no evidence that this is the right Thomas Tucker. All I have, so far, is the right name, place, and time.
