Legacy for Isaac mentioned in the will of Richard Johns written at Calvert Cliffs, 15 AUG 1717.

His second wife was Elizabeth Robertson Harris who he married around 1730.

Whereas I have already made over to my son Isaac Johns 2 parcels of land called part of Batchelors Fortune cont. 100 acs. & John’s Addition cont. 112 acs. I do now hereby give to Isaac Johns the plantation & remaining part of the land where I now dwell called Angellica, the whole tract cont. 600 acres, 200 acs. whereof I have already given to my son Kensey all the remaining part being the northernmost 400 acs. with all housing & appurtenants thereunto.[1]

Isaac Johns, (1692-1733) inherited a portion of Angelica plantation from his father. He was reported to be one of the wealthiest men in Calvert County at that period. As a young man of 20, Isaac married Anne Galloway in 1712. Isaac and Anne had seven children. Their home called White Cliffs still stands on Cliffs near Parker’s Creek. The Galloway family was also Quakers and English immigrants,

After Anne’s death in 1737, Isaac remarried Elizabeth (Eliza) Robertson Harris. They had one son, Aquilla together. In his will he divides his holdings between his heirs.
