Re: Burns/Locklear FPOC 1818 Illinois

Hi Lyle. Any chance your Mayhew family was originally from Maryland? I just found this while researching the inventories for Prince George's County [Prerogatory Inventories 1727-1729 (SR 4332-1), pages 307-311, Inventory of the Honorable Thomas Addison, Esq., 10 August 1727...At the Great House
(list of slaves)
1 Indian man named Tom -- 32 pounds
... Elinor Addison widow

Tom Mayhew, an East Indian, sued Eleanor Addison for his freedom, saying he was baptized in England and imported into Maryland with his mother under indenture. He won his case on 26 August 1729.
