His house, built in 1776, still stands. Richard signed the oath of fidelity 6 June 1776 and was appointed Capt. of Soldiers' Delight Battalion of the Baltimore Co.

    On 20 May 1734 Samuel and Christopher Randall (probably Samuel's brother-in-law) agreed to divide "Green Spring". Eight days later Christopher sold 100 acres of his part.[15a]

    In addition to "Green Spring Punch", by 1750 Samuel also owned "Addition" (150 acres), "Severn" (100 acres), "Timber Level" (350 acres), "Come by Chance" (50 acres) and other lands. In all he owned about 2,800 acres, of which 2,165 were acquired by patent and about 35 by purchase. He was styled "Gentleman". Between 1764 and 1769 he bought an additional 487 acres in Baltimore County, and sold 48. In 1770 he bought 162 acres in Frederick County and gave 200 acres in Baltimore County to his son Thomas.[16]

    Samuel was Anglican, and served in St. Paul's Parish Vestry (Baltimore County) in 1735-38 and 1744-45. Then later he served in the St. Thomas Parish Vestry from 1750 to 1752. He was appointed to a commission along with Christopher RANDALL, William HAMILTON, and Nicholas HAILE to select and purchase a site, and receive subscriptions to build a chapel of ease for the parish in 1741. On 4 July Christopher GIST, with his wife Sarah's consent, conveyed 2 acres of "Adventure" to them for that purpose.[17]

    Samuel began his public career as a justice in Baltimore County, serving terms from 1744 to 1757, 1758 to 1764 (part of the quorum in 1750-57 and 1758-64). Then he served as justice in the Especial Court of Oyer, Terminer, and Gaol Delivery in Baltimore County from 1753 to 1761, and in 1763 (quorum both terms).[18]

    In 1757 Samuel was elected to the Lower House of the Maryland Assembly, where he served two terms: 1757-58 and 1758-61.[19]

    By 1763 Samuel was known as "Esq.". Although his main source of income was as a planter, he also owned a saw mill.[20]

    Samuel was listed for Back River Upper Hundred tax list in 1767. Others in the same Hundred that year were his son Bale Owings, nephew Bazil Owings, and Charles Ridgely Sr. and Jr.[20a]

    Samuel made his will in 1772 and began distributing his Baltimore County land to his children--not always according to what had been written in his will. Within the year he gave 250 acres to his son Samuel, 223 acres to Hannah, 400 acres to Christopher, 90 to Bale, and 257 to daughter Urath. He died at 2:00 a.m. on 6 April 1775 at the age of 73. His estate inventory was filed 8 May 1776 by Edward COCKEY and George RISTEAU. It included fifteen enslaved humans, one indentured servant, books, plate valued at £13.8.0, millstones, and oak plank. He owned about 2,000 acres in Baltimore and Frederick Counties. The final administration was filed 21 June 1776 at a value of £1,533.13.11 current money. Creditors John Cockey and Rau HULSE and kinsmen Samuel and Thomas Owings approved it. Executor was his son Bale Owings. He bequeathed Urath seven Negroes, a life interest in his "dwelling plantation", and one tenth of his money, stock and personalty as long as she remained a widow. At her death the personalty was to be divided equally among their chilren. Any land not specifically bequeathed was to be divided equally between Urath, Richard, and Rebecca. The residue of the estate was to be divided equally among all nine children.[21]

    Samuel Jr. bought the rights to "Green Spring Punch" in 1790, but gave his mother a life estate in the property. Urath died 15 December 1793. In her will, signed 26 November 1792 she gave her son Samuel his father's cane, and her grand daughter Urath Owings twelve pictures. She mentioned her children: Samuel, Thomas, Richard, Rachel STEVENSON, Urath LAWRENCE, and Hannah STONE; and her grandchildren: Urath CROMWELL, Urath Owings, Ruth Owings (widow of Samuel), Urath Stevenson, Elizabeth Lawrence, Deborah Howard, and Beal Owings (son of Christopher). A codicil added granddaughter Martha Stone 6 January 1793.[22]

    12. Barnes, The Green Spring Valley, 2:20. An alternative (or a second marriage?) offered by www.rootsweb.com/~mdannear/firstfam/owings claims that Ruth m Edward NORWOOD, son of John, and had 6 children. That source also gives Deborah Todd Lynch's mother as Elinor Dorsey.
