John Gaither II was a Maryland colonist.

Captain John Gaither (1646-1702)

Name

John Gater [1]
John Gaither
Captain John Gaither[2]
John Gaither (3), son of John Gater or Geather (2) I was the first to spell the Gaither name as it is spelled today. [3]

1646 Birth and Parentage

John Gaither was born in Virginia by 1646 [4]

John Gaither was born 26 Jan 1641/42 in Elizabeth City, Norfolk, Virginia.[5]

Some genealogies show an exact birth date. "He was born at Elizabeth city, Virginia on January 26, 1642 and died at Abington plantation, Maryland on November 12, 1702. [3] Saunders noted, "An exact birth date for John Gaither is new to me. This sounds to me like someone forging a date. [6]

Some popular genealogies show the birthplace as Anne Arundel County, Maryland. This is an error, because the family did not move from Virginia to Maryland until 1649 or later.

Captain John Gaither's father, John Gater, Immigrant, had one known child. It is unknown which wife was the mother, but it should be noted that his son named a daughter Mary, as did at least four of his children. The name Joan was not used among his known children or grandchildren.[1]

Some Genealogies show John's mother Mary as Mary Waters. No basis has been found for this.

Some Genealogies show that John Gaither, Immigrant, born 1599, had a son John Gaither II, born 1620 and age 15 when they arrived in Virginia on the Assurance, and that John Gaither II then had a son John Gaither III, born before 1646. The available documentation does not support such a genealogy, but rather that Gaither, born before 1646, was Captain John Gaither, the son of John Gaither, Immigrant, born 1599. Thus Newman and those citing Newman refer to Captain John Gaither as John Gaither III. "Capt John Gaither, III was born in Virginia 1646." [2]

1650 Migration to Maryland

John Gaither, born in Virginia, was transported to Maryland by his parents around 1650. [2]

1652 Orphan Under Care of Thomas Meares

John Gaither, Immigrant, father of Captain John Gaither, died in 1652, when his wife Mary was named his administratrix. In 1652, the younger John, born 1646, would have been 6 years old. While his mother, Mary, as administratrix, survived her husband, there is no further record in her name, leaving a question of how the mother and child sustained themselves until Captain John Gaither's majority.

The question seems answered by the presence of Thomas Mears who made John Gaither an heir in his will. John Gaither had reached the age of majority by 1662 because he requested the renewal of a land warrant for 460 acres dated March 26, 1662. Thoms Meares, his father and grandfather's friend of early Virginia days, bequeathed him a legacy at his death. [2]

In 1662, John would have been aged 16. If the required age for majority was 21, that would require pushing John's birthdate back from 1646 to 1641, and would likely make his mother to be Joan rather than Mary.

1662 Land Grant

John was the first of his family to obtain a land grant in Maryland. Patents were issued upon beautiful South River in 1660 for Pole Cat Hill and Round About Hills. [2]

On 8 Oct. 1662 John Gather demanded renewal of warrant dated 26 March 1662.[1] for 460 acres; 200 acres were surveyed and patented to him under the name Gatherly and lay on the Little Choptank River in now Dorchester County.[2]

1663 Abington Tract

On January 26, 1663/4, John Gaither and Robert Proctor patented jointly "Abington," of 875 acres between the North Run and the South Run of the South River. It was on the outposts of the settlements along the Severn and South Rivers and became the ancestral estate of the senior branch of the Gaither family for a number of years.[2]

Later, John Gaither built the “Three Beall Moro”, and “Bite the Biter” and “Left Out” plantations and became the largest land holder in Maryland.[3]

Some genealogies show a marriage date of 15 Jan 1676/7 in Anne Arundel County, but no source has been found for this.

John Gaither, later Captain John Gaither, born 1646, would have been aged 30 at the time. The births of seven of their children, which commenced the next year, were recorded at All Hallow's Parish, South River.[2]

About 1678 in All Hallows Parish, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, John Gaither married Ruth, Maiden Name Unknown. She was born about 1662 in Virginia and died Oct 1719, All Hallows Parish, Anne Arundel County, Maryland (Age ~ 57 years) [5]

Research Notes

The following persons are easily confused:

  1. John Gaither II, born Virginia 1646, son of John Gaither, born 1599, and his wife Mary.
  2. John Gather, born 1635
  3. John Gater, Jr, born Lamberhurst, Kent, England 1635, son of John Gater, Sr, born 1604, and Mary Unknown.

No Connection with Lamberhurst, England

No Trans-Atlantic connection has been found between the Gaithers of Lamberhurst, Kent, England -- John Gaither Sr Baptised February 16, 1604 and his son John Gaither Jr Baptised March 5, 1634 on the one hand, and the Gaithers of Virginia and Maryland -- John Gaither I , born March 5, 1599, Immigrant from England and his son Capt. John Gaither II who died in Anne Arundel CO, MD. Fredric Z. Saunders, a widely respected professional genealogist, has stated that "The English origin and parents of John (GATER) GAITHER, born 1599, of Virginia and Maryland are unknown." [1]

Ruth was not Ruth Morley

Some genealogies claim that Ruth was a daughter of Joseph Morley. "He married Ruth Morley." [3]. Saunders notes that "Claims that she was a daughter of Joseph MORLEY are in error. This appeared in print with Harry Wright Newman's 1st Edition (1933) of "Anne Arundel Gentry," based on Morley's 1672 will in which he made Robert PROCTOR and John GATHER his executors and legatees." [15] Newman corrected this in his second edition (1970), as court records show Joseph Morley died with no heirs. [16]

Ruth was not Ruth Beard

There are also claims that Ruth's surname was BEARD, daughter of Richard BEARD. The evidence would indicate that she wasn't. Richard Beard wrote his will in Anne Arundel County on 24 July 1675, which was proved on 10 August 1681. To his daughter Ruth, and "her sons" he left part of the tract "Timber Neck."12 In addition to the fact that John Gaither and wife Ruth were not married yet and had no sons, no part of "Timber Neck" was ever possessed by the Gaither family. John Wheeler of Anne Arundel County wrote his will on 21 November 1684 which was proved on 13 December of the same year.[1]

In addition to other tracts, his son John was to have 100 acres of "Timber Neck." In the event that his son John died without issue, then the lands were to go to Richard Beard, the eldest son of "my loving friend Mr. Richard Beard" and his heirs, but if Richard Beard the younger died without lawful issue then to go to Matthew Beard, the other son "my loving friend Mr. Richard Beard." His wife was named Christian.93[1]

The implication is that John Wheeler first married Ruth Beard, and Christian was a second wife. That Richard and Matthew, sons of Richard Beard [Jr.], [Ruth's brother] were the residuary heirs, it seems his intent was to convey the land back to the Beard family in case his son John Wheeler died with no heirs.[1]

The son John Wheeler made a nuncupative will on 2 January 1687 which was proved in Anne Arundel County on 15 June 1688. He left his entire estate to his mother [not named].94[1]

On 27 June 1688 the verbal will of John Wheeler of Anne Arundel County was exhibited. Christian Wheeler had been sworn as administratrix on 15 June, and the administration bond of Wm. Bateman and Christian his wife for the said John Wheeler had Walter Phelps and John Gray as security.95 [1]

That record would show that John Wheeler, Sr.'s widow Christian remarried to William Bateman. The Maryland Legislature passed an act in 1715 for defects in the tract "Timber Neck" sold by Matthew Beard to Stephen Wright, and from him to Samuel Chambers.96[1]

This biography has 11 citations using the form name="s98", but there is no definition for "s98".
