It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

    La12 Benjamin Lawrence

    La12 Benjamin Lawrence was the son of the unknown immigrant Lawrence b about 1615 ?d 6 Sep 1667 and his wife.
    He was the earliest in the records available to Mrs. George Nicholas Ni3-5, whose meticulous work in the author's matarnal grandmother's ancestral quarter has been a great, massive and generally reliable platform for further research. Here, however, her records seem to confuse this first Benjamin with his son of the same name, as both died relatively young.
    Benjamin migrated from Accomac County, Virginia to Somerset County, Maryland, and thence to .Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
    From the following data we may conclude that he was born in Accomac Co., Va., about 1640. Born:  Under the assumption that his son Benjamin was born about 1640 in Accomac, Accomac Co., Virginia, his birth year has to be set before 1625 with a probability of about 1615. This makes it probable that he was born in Britain and immigrated to Accomac Co. Va. about 1635.

    Died: 1685

    He was also of  “The Deserts” in Calvert County, Maryland.
     In 1677, on June 22, he was warantee of land granted to William Richardson, for 550 acres in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. ..
     In 1677, on September 10, 115 acres as assigned to Benjamin Lawrence (II) (La11) of Calvert County, Maryland, called "Benjamin's Fortune".
    In 1684, January 6, by his will, he devises "Benjamin's Fortune” to his son Benjamin (lII) (La10).
    His will was proven, 1685 July. In 1689, July 26, the appraisement, etc., was recorded. These records are in Liber G, page 142, Annapolis, Maryland.
     He married: 1. Anne Ascomb.

    The probability that the great hurricane of 6th Sept. 1667 drove his son to move to Maryland also makes this same date the probable date of death of both Benjamin Sr. and his wife, since the death toll was very high on the East Shore.
    Those living_in_virginia_in_1623.htm  shows a John Ascomb living on the the "Eastern Shore" in 1623 as well as a Goodman Ascomb living in James City and a widow Mary Ascombe and Abigail Ascombe living t at Chaplains Choise
    There were several Lawrences living in Gloucester England in the 15 90s
    Children of Benjamin Lawrence and Ann Ascomb were as follows:
    La11 Benjamin Lawrence b c 1640 probably in Accomac VA d 1685 married
    1st Ann x ?d 6 Sep 1667
    2nd Elizabeth Talbott, daughter of Richard Talbott and Elizabeth Ewen, in 1676 in Anne Arundel Co Maryland.
    La11-2 Nehamiah Lawrence.
    Sources: Paul E. Lawrence [] gives 1652 as birth year for son Benjamin (La11).
