Elizabeth was born in 1721 or 1722. This may have been written (primary source not available) as 1721/22, which might indicate the date was in 1722 (Old Style) before "Lady Day."[3] [4][5]

The modern spelling of Ann Arundell County adds an 'e' to her first name of "Ann" and removes the second 'L' from the family name of "Arundell": Anne Arundel County.
