    • The Thomas Book states "As Samuel Thomas unquestionably m in 1688, a Mary Hutchins, and their certificate is signed, first, by Francis Hutchins (see West River Marriage Book, p. 19), she must have been the child of a former marriage, her sister of the same name marrying Benjamin Hance.

      Note: It seems unlikely to me that Francis Hutchins who married Elizabeth Burrage is the father of this Mary by a previous marriage as stated in "The Thomas Book." At the time of his will in 1698 Francis Hutchins listed 7 children in his will, a son John and 6 daughters all under the age of 16. If this Mary Hutchins marries in 1688 she was likely born between 1660 and 1673, too old to have been his daughter. I have seen recorded that son-in-law Samuel Thomas is mentioned in the will of Francis Hutchins but have not seen a copy of that.

      From the West River Marriage Book, folio 19.

      Whereas Samuell Thomas of Annarundell County in the Province of Maryland and Mary Hutchins of Calvert County in the County aforesaid (sic.) having declaired their Intentions of Marriage two sundry times att several Publich meetings of the People of God called Quakers in the County aforesaid which was admitted on by the said Meetings. Now these are to Certifie all people whom it may concerne that for the full determining of the Intentions aforesaid this 15th day of the 3d month called May 1688. In an assembly of the people of God aforesaid att the house of Samuell Thomas in Annarundell County The said Samuell Thomas did According to the Example of the holy men of God. Recorded in the scriptures of truth, take Mary Hutchins to be his Wife and in like manner she the said Mary Hutchins did then and there take the said Samuell Thomas to be her husband, Each of them promising to be loving and faithfull one to another as husband and wife so long as they both shall live.
