(Margaret Drury is my seventh great grandaunt. Our common ancestor is Robert Drury. There are conflicting sources here, some note John Tant's wife as Margaret Bloomfield. At this point in my research, I am treating Margaret Drury and Margaret Bloomfield as alternate names for the same individual. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
However, we do know that John and Margaret Tant had a grandson named Marke Lampton, the son of Marke Lampton of Charles County, Maryland...who I believe married their daughter Ann.
Grandson William Thompson and his brother Henry are the sons of their daughter Jane and husband Thomas Thompson of Charles County. Jane's sister Susannah was married to Richard Thompson, brother of Thomas.
Grandson John Manning is the son of their daughter Mary and husband John Manning of St. Mary's. Grandsons Joseph and Vitus are sons of Vitus Herbert of St. Mary's and Winifred Tant, daughter of John & Margaret.
Daughter Margaret had married Walter Pye of St. Mary's.)
The Worland Family in America and Beyond
I began my life in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, on an island filled with forests and wild rhododendrons. I was separated from my Worland family there at an early age. Recently, I was reunited with my family and learned of my heritage. And so, this journey to know my ancestors began. The Worlands, Gideons, Newtons, Conards... they were the colonists, the settlers, the pioneers. They fought in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War. This is their story, and the story of a nation. -Deci Worland MacKinnon
