Subject: Re: [LDR] Copy of Original Indentured Service Document

Ships tended to land anywhere they had enough water. He could have gotten
off the boat almost anywhere. Why do you believe he was indentured?
In a message dated 10/7/2009 7:24:17 P.M. Eastern Standard Time,
I am new to this group of ancestry researchers. I am researching Dill
ancestors in Maryland. I have found a court document that said that John Dill
came to America in 1659. I believe that he had to serve five years of
indentured service as part payment for his transportation plus contribute his
promised 50 acres of land. I would like to have a copy of an original
hand written Indentures Service Document. It does not matter what name is one
the document. I just want to have a copy of such an original document for
my ancestry files.
I am also trying to find out where this John Dill landed when he came to
America. Did he land in Jamestown and then migrate with his master to
Dorchester or Talbot Co., MD? Did the sailing ship land in Oxford, MD? I have
found a Thomas Dill land record dated March 10 1731. Is Thomas Dill the
son of John Dill. Does anyone have more information about these and other
Dills in Maryland in the 1659 to 1730 time frame? Because of the later
presence of Dills in this Maryland area, I believe that this John Dill did live
in the lower Delmarva area but I do not have any records that say where.
Any help in this area would be appreciated as well.
Thanks for your help. With love in Christ, George
