Ancestors of Elizabeth Bullock

Generation No. 1

1. Elizabeth Bullock, born Abt. 1670; died in MD. She was the daughter of 2. John Bullock and 3. Catherine Assiter. She married (1) Arthur Joseph Alvey Bef. 1690 in SMC, MD (Source: Maryland Calandar of Wills, 3:502, 10:17). He was the son of Joseph Alvey and Elizabeth Unknown. She married (2) William Cissell Bet. 1688 - 1692 in SMC, MD. He was the son of John Baptist Cissell and Mary Calvert.

Notes for Arthur Joseph Alvey:
>From Robert Lee Alvey: Arthur is thought to be the oldest child of Joseph & Elizabeth. Mary Louise Donnelly, an avid St. Mary's Co, MD researcher, believes that Arthur's son is a younger son of Joseph and Elizabeth and prints as such in her book "Early settlers of St. Clement's Bay". Nothing should be dismissed but I, along with several other Alvey researchers, continue to have some problems with the timeline for this to be fact and until something documentable is found, I will continue to show him as Arthur's only child.

Notes for William Cissell:
By his marriage to Catherine Joyner he came into possession of 100 acres of "Scotland". William married secondly Elizabeth Bullock Alvey, the daughter of John and ? Assiter, and the widow of Arthur Alvey, with no children. In 1701 William administered the estate of Arthur Alvey )Acc't 21:382). William acquired an additional 100 acres of "Scotland" which was resurveyed for him on 12/10/1714 and patented to him on 9/10/1716.

William Cissell, a planter, wrote his will 22 Jun 1742 and was admitted to probate on 28 Nov 1744.(24:2-4) To his son Arthur he left 100 acres of "Scotland", and to his granddaughter Elinor (daughter of Arthur) he left the land between Arthur's plantation and where John Harden now lives. To his son Luke he left the other part of "Scotland", 50 acres he had obtained by "Judgement in Chancery". He left his daughters Margaret Thompson and Ann Edwards the plantations where they were living. To his son Matthew he left the plantation where he was living, which was 50 acres of "White Acres", William had inherited from his father, plus Clare his wife he left a shilling. To his daughter Elizabeth, the wife of Charles Payne, he left the land between William Cissell's and Ann Edward's, deeded from her brother William Cissell's land. To his daughter Clare Barton he left one acre now in possession of William Cissell's son John. To his daughter in law Elizabeth___, now married to Char!
les Neal, he left access to William Cissell's land. His children were all named as his heirs.

William is mentioned in the will of his father, John Cissell, dated 28 April 1694.
Notes of March 1697/1698 as recorded in the annals of PGC, MD, a William Cecil "by the request of my wife as she lay upon her deathbed " disposed of his children John, age 7, Phillip, age 5, and Susan, age 2, to Mareen Duval (the Elder) and his wife. May be a different William-as it is, there seems to be no real agreement on which children belonged to which wife.
