If she is the daughter of Benjamin & Elizabeth Lawrence she would have to be the unborn child mentioned in the will of her father. No birth record has been found.


10 Feb 1701/02 West River & Cliff's Meeting House, All Hallow's Parish, Anne Arundel County, Maryland[1]

John Belt and Lucy Lawrence married 10 Feb 1701 at a Quaker meeting, conivingly. Lucy is also betrothed wife of Joseph Tilly, "which action is contrary to the law of god and man". However, I have never seen any evidence that the Peddicords were Quakers.
