    Right below this is the first part of an Indenture made by Mathew Wallis of ye County of New Castle upon Delaware, Yeoman, made on 16 day of March 1778. It refers to some property that he had purchased in 1681 and is now selling to John Folke of Somerst County---- from a fork of Kokiaccukin River etc
    Note that Matthew Wallis is now December 1707 in Delaware, the closest area where legal documents could be made, giving the power of attorney to all matters in Somerset Co. Maryland to his kinsman, William Alexander Junior who married his daughter, Catherine Wallace.
    So by December 1707 Matthew Wallis/(Wallace is in Cecil Co. or Delaware which was the main legal area that he could have traveled to give this legal instument. This is seven years before the 1714 New Munster deed to Matthew Wallace and his company

    Matthew Wallace, Jr., of the New Munster tract were brothers of David Wallace and that a

      5. Mary Maxwell, born 1634 in Raphoe, Donegal, Ulster, Ireland; died in Cecil County, Maryland.
      Notes for James Alexander:
      James ALEXANDER Reverend5, 12,13,9 was born about 1618 in Menstrie, Sterling, Scotland.5 Brevard Family "Rev James Alexander (1634 - 1704) "Charles C. Miller--sent me an extensive file on descendants of John Alexander, b. 1590 Scotland, d. in Eridy, Donegal Co. Ireland, son Robert married to Mary Hamilton, his son James (Rev.) b. c. 1634 Bughall Scotland,d. 1704 in Raphoe, Ireland or Cecil "Co. Md. married to Mary Maxwell whom he says died in Cecil Co. Md. (Has this been established?) He was ordained on 12 Dec 1677 in Raphoe, Donegal, Ulster, Ireland.14 Rev James ordained Dec 12, 1677 imprisoned 8 months for publicly holding "a day of prayer and fasting" Minister of Raphoe, 3rd minister at Convoy on Montgomery Estate.Salary in 1691 was lb 24 and 24 barrels of Corn Died Nov 17 1704. He died 9 Dec 1691 and 17 Nov 1704 in Donegal, Donegal Co, Ireland.5 In the records of "The General Synod of Ulster" (a copy of these records in three volumes is in the library of the Presbyterian Historical Society, Witherspoon Bldg.,Philadelphia.) James Alexander and William Liston, of Raphoe, are noted as
      absent from the meetings in 1691, 1692,and 1694, after which Liston's name appears no more; but James were accepted, and finally his death on 17 November 1704 was minuted [Opus cit, vol I, 96] Brevard Family D "Rev. James and his wife are presumed to have remained in Ireland "
      Jim and Sylvia Gidley--gidleyjs@erols.com (This goes back to Aug. 1997) sent me a line of descent of John Alexander b. 1590 in Scotland. James Alexander, the Reverend and wife Mary Maxwell. He died about 1704?, brother or cousin to William Alexander who was the father of the seven brothers and
      two sisters who came to America.(Preyer) PA Genol Mag Pg 85 to 86
      There is a well established tradition that seven Alexander brothers, Presbyterians from Scotland who had sojourned a while in the north of Ireland, probably at Raphoe, Co., Donegal, and Sligo, Co., came to Somerset Co. Md. before going on to Cecil Co. If we may judge from the circumstantial evidence remaining, then along with the brothers came two sisters: one, the wife of Matthew Wallace; the other Jane, who married John McKnitt. In Somerset, at early dates, we find William, Andrew, Samuel, and John
      Alexander, and in Cecil County James, Francis, Joseph , and the afore-mentioned Samuel Alexander. I hazard a guess that they were sons of the Reverend James Alexander, of Raphoe, a member of Laggan Presbytery in 1680, whose ministerial brethren then in northern Ireland included David Brown, of Urney, William Traile, of Lifford, Thomas Wilson, of Killybegs,and William Liston, of Letterkenny, to mention a few. I name these because one David Brown became an important civic-minded Presbyterian leader in
      Somerset: because William Traile and Thomas Wilson soon joined Francis Makemie, "father of organized Presbyterianism in America", in his labor in Somerset: and because William Alexander, Sr., of Somerset, had a grandson named for William Liston. At first in Somerset and later in Cecil, we find Matthew Wallace and John McKnitt.

      i.William Alexander, born Abt. 1646 in Raphoe, Donegal, Ulster, Ireland;married Ann Liston 1690 in Raphoe, Donegal, Ulster, Ireland.

      Text: Alexander Alexander and the title of Earl of Stirling. (see William Alexander `1st Earl of Stirling Notes for Compleat Peerage )
      William Alexander of Menstrie, in Logie, county Clackmannan, Scotland, was the only son and heir of Alexander Alexander and his wife Marion,the daughter of Gilbert Graham of Gartavertane in Mentieth. He was born about 1576 and educated at the Stirling Grammar School, Glasgow University and on the continent at Leyden. He accompanied the 7th Earl of Argyll in a tour of Europe where he acquired some French and Italian. In his early days William Alexander was an intimate of Alexander Hume and later formed a close friendship with Drummond of Hawthornden. He had literary aspirations and published A Short Discourse on the Gowrie Conspiracy in 1600. This was followed by four tragedies: Croesus, Darius, The Alexandrean and Julius Caesar, 1603-07, bound up as The Monarchicke Tragedies in 1604 and 1607. His poems, A Paraenesis to the Prince and Aurora appeared in 1604, and of his later works the best-known is the lengthy Doomesday (1614). In 1627 he was granted the privilege, for 21 years, of imprinting The Psalms of King David, translated into metre by his late Majesty James I, though mostly by William himself. A revised version of muchof his work was issued as Recreations with the Muses in 1637. From the Earl of Argyll, William Alexander had a charter of the lands and barony of Menstrie in 1605, having nine years earlier been infeft by him of the 'five pund' land of the Mains of Menstrie. This association with powerful Lord of Argyll and his poetical and other talents brought him into great favor at Court, where he became Gentleman of the Privy Chamber Extraordinary to Prince Henry by 1607, and he was soon knighted. In March 1613 he, with two others, was granted the right of working the silver mine at Hilderston, county Linlithgow. By king James I of England, he was made Master of Requests in 1614 and attended Parliament as such until his death. He became Burgess of Edinburgh in 1617, and Lord of the Articles in 1621. In that year he was given by charter a grant of the whole territory of Nova Scotia for the purpose of colonization and was appointed hereditary Lieutenant General thereof by land and by sea. In November 1624 he was empowered by king James to divide that land into 100 tracts, later increased to 150, and to sell each, together with the rank of Baronet. He was abroad on the King's special service in 1624-5 when he attended the great jubilee in Rome. From king Charles I he obtained a renewed grant, or novodamus, of the barony of Nova Scotia and, in February 1627, a charter of the lordship of Canada, all ratified by the Scots Parliament in 1630 and 1633. He was also granted the Admiralty jurisdiction of Nova Scotia in 1627 and certain lands of Largs, county Ayr in 1629, where the town was erected into a free burgh of barony as a trading port for his lands in the new world. Sir William was made Secretary of State for Scotland in 1625 and rincipal Secretary from 1627 until his death, as well as Commissioner for Surrenders and Teinds, and for the discovery of Papists. He was also a member of the Scots Council of War, Commissioner of the Exchequer and Councillor of the Association for the Fishing.In September 1630 William was created Viscount of Stirling and Lord Alexander of Tullibody, and subsequently on thecoronation in Scotland of Charles I in June 1633, Earl of Stirling, Viscount of Canada, and Lord Alexander of Tullibody, each title to be inheritable by his heirs male of the name of Alexander. In 1631 he was made Commissioner to superintend the coining of copper farthings, as well as penny and twopenny pieces called 'turners.' He became a Councillor for New England in 1633 and Commissioner for Foreign Plantations the next year. He was Joint Master of the Minerals (with his son John) in 1635. He accompanied the king to the north in the
      First Bishops' War and signed the Treaty of Berwick in 1639, and received a grant out of the rent paid by the beaver makers. In 1601 he had married Janet, daughter of Sir William Erskine the Commendator of the Bishopric of Glasgow and known as the Parson of Campsie.
      They had four sons,William,Anthony,Henry,and John but the fortunes of Lord and Lady Stirling began to decline in 1632, when the English made peace with the French and surrendered to them, under the Treaty of St.Germain-en-Laye, the whole of Nova Scotia and Canada, the grant to William not withstanding. Nevertheless Lord Stirling continued to allocate both lands and Baronetcies in Nova Scotia until 1638, making over to his many creditors the moneys 'to be procured' from this source. Back in 1631 the Exchequer had given him a note for 10,000 for the satisfaction of his losses in New Scotland, but neither this money nor the proceeds of the sales of lands and titles was ever paid. The Earl Stirling died insolvent in February 1639 at his house in Covent Garden and was buried 12 April 1640 in Bowie's Aisle. Stirling Church.
      Lord Stirling's biographer, T. H. McGrail, says "Sir William Alexander adventured bravely, served faithfully, and lived his life intensely. If all his tremendous designs accomplished little or nothing, if the story of each of his enterprises is a record of eventual defeat, it is because he was rendered impotent by the hiatus between conception and execution, between the dream and the eality."Lord Stirling's first son and heir apparent, William Alexander, was born about 1604. He was admitted to Glasgow University in 1618, and in 1623 hisfather was trying to obtain some preferment for him in his Majesty'sservice. He was made Commissioner, with Sir John Scot of Scotstarvet, to actfor his father in Scotland in the business of the Nova Scotia Plantation in1626, and he was knighted that year at Whitehall. He became Burgess of Glasgow in 1627. The following year he sailed for Nova Scotia and planted a colony there at Fort Royal, formerly the French Port Royal, in September, returning to Scotland in November, 1629. The next year, as Commissioner to make a voyage to the gulf and river of Canada for the sole trade of skins,furs and hides, he wintered in Nova Scotia, arriving back at Dover in October 1630.William was styled Master of Stirling, 1630-33, and Lord Alexander from1633. He was Councillor for New England from that year and served on many important committees.
