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

1740- My fourth great granduncle, William Drury, has been born to John Drury & Susannah Hayden in St. Mary's County, Maryland.

My fourth great granduncle, Joseph Newton, is born to Clement & Elizabeth Newton in St. Mary's County, Maryland.

My fourth great granduncle, Arnold Livers, son of Arnold & Helen, is assigned to St. Francis Xavier in Newtown, St. Mary's County, where he received his final vows in 1742. Arnold was a Jesuit Priest.

My fifth great grandaunt, Elizabeth Robey, dies at the age of 50, in Charles County, Maryland. The daughter of John Robey & Sarah Hines Luckett, she was the wife of John Henley. Her husband apparently died the same year.

William Robey and Mary Alexander are married in Charles County, Maryland.

William Luckett and Charity Middleton, the daughter of Captain John Middleton & Mary Wheeler, are married in Prince George's County, Maryland. They settled in what would become the new county of Frederick on the western slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Charity and her husband were given by her parents, "for natural love and affection", the tracts "Thomas and Mary" and "Wilson's Enlargement", containing 195 acres in Prince Georges County.
In about 1725, as an orphan, William Luckett had been placed under the care of James Middleton, uncle of Charity Middleton, by court orders to learn a profitable trade or profession. It was the custom of that day in Maryland to apprentice children whose paternal parent was deceased and whose estate was either insolvent or negligible with planters or merchants in order that the orphans may not become public charges.
In 1728, James Middleton was summoned by the court and censured for "neglecting to teach William Luckett to read and write". William, however, later became quite proficient in letters, because many documents written by him and signed are still preserved at the court house of Frederick County.
