ÙCuÙDÙCbÙDWARNING TO THE READER:ÙC/uÙDÙC/bÙD
It is important to understand that the ancestry of ÙCuÙDÙCbÙD Lois HowardÙC/uÙDÙC/bÙD is currently under dispute. There are many individuals who believe that Lois is a daughter of Captain Cornelius Howard (as stated in this work), but there are also just as many people who believe that Lois (Howard) Shipley is not the daughter of Capt. Cornelius Howard. The Shipleys of Maryland have not made any ancestral links to Cornelius Howard, however there is mass confusion and debate on the subject.
Please be advised that the version you are reading currently is merely a hypothesis and not a proven fact. Hopefully one day the mystery will be solved. For now we hope you are aware of both possibilities and can draw your own conclusions.
ÙCuÙDÙCbÙDCornelius HOWARD had no daughter named Lois. ÙC/uÙDÙC/bÙDThere is also no evidence that Lois, wife of Adam SHIPLEY was a HOWARD, and it is highly unlikely that she was.
In 1698, Richard SHIPLEY for love and affection towards his younger brothers gave them land. To his brother Adam he gave 100 acres where their mother Lois SHIPLEY lived, part of a tract called *Howard's and Porter's Range.* [Anne Arundel land records 1H1:80]
The 1707 rent rolls listed that the 100 acres of *Howard's and Porter's Range* owned by Adam SHIPLEY was part of the the tract originally patented by Cornelius HOWARD and Peter PORTER.
What happened, was that since someone couldn't find a deed of the SHIPLEYs buying the land, they speculated that it may have been inherited, and that Lois may have been a HOWARD. Someone else came along and dropped the speculation, stating it as fact she was a HOWARD. The progression was that someone then decided she must be the daughter of Cornelius HOWARD.
Many early Anne Arundel deeds were burned in a courthouse fire, which is why they did not find a deed. The details of how Adam SHIPLEY acquired the land are, though, contained in a HOWARD deed that after the fire was rerecorded at the request of Ruth HOWARD, widow of Philip HOWARD.
On 19 Jan. 1687 Cornelius HOWARD, son and heir of Cornelius HOWARD conveyed 500 acres of *Howard and Porters Range* to Philip HOWARD. It was stated that the parcel by survivorship descended from Peter PORTER to Cornelius HOWARD, and that Cornelius HOWARD had sold 150 acres to Lancelott TODD, and sold 100 acres to Addam SHIPLEY. [AALR 1H1:243]
So, although the deed from Cornelius HOWARD to Adam SHIPLEY was not rerecorded, this shows how he acquired the tract. It was not by inheritance through his wife Lois, but by a simple sale. Cornelius HOWARD died in 1680, and did not name a daughter Lois. [Maryland wills 2:107-110]
