The Brents and Calverts have multiple relationships. I was looking for the parents of Henry Brent, who married Anne Calvert, daughter of Governor Leonard, and one source placed him in George and Marianna's family. I have no supporting data for this, so add the link for now, but it needs research to determine whether the link should stay or be undone!
