Analysis. The father of Daniel Walker (14)


Person:Charles Walker (11) Charles Walker of Prince George's County, MD, not the son of Daniel (14),


This article is for the Daniel Walker whose will and probate record establish the fact that he died in Talbot County, MD, in 1702. [1] Daniel (14)'s parents are believed to be John Walker of the Stand of Pilkington and Elizabeth, based on a death record for daughter Elizabeth [2]given in a "History of Talbot County" [3] On this basis we can guess that Daniel was probably borne in the Stand of Pilkington. We know that he was an adult in Talbot County, MD in 1665, based on the fact that he served on a jury in that year.[4] and so would probably have been born by about 1640, immigrating to America as a young man.


Daniel's 1702 will identifies six children children, viz:

Eliza:, wife of Abraham Horlock, (also transcribed as "Portlock" in some versions of the will
Jane, wife of John Merrick


From: probably drawing from Archives of Maryland Vol 54 Proceedings of the County Courts of Kent (1658-1676), Talbot (1662-1674), and Somerset (1665-1668) Counties

"On October 22, 1687, a tract of 114 acres known as "Sparks Outlet "was surveyed for William Sparks. The patent for this tract was issued on June 12, 1688 (Talbot County Deed Book 2, p. 625). According to this patent, this tract was assigned to Sparks by Thomas Smithson who was an assignee of Daniel Walker, all being of Talbot County . Walker had acquired this tract as part of a grant of 1,200 acres on June 13, 1687. In the patent, it is described as "that tract or parcel of land called Sparkes Outlett lyeing in Talbott County neare Chester River betwixt the Land of the said William Sparkes and the Land of John Hawkins beginning at a marked Red oake standing in or near the line of John Hawkins and--?-- runs thence south-west most eighty perches to another marked Red oake thence southeast forty perches to a marked blacke oake att the Corner of a little pocoson, thence east and by south one hundred sixty perches, ...and from the end there of Running north and by east towards the Land of John Hawkins one hundred and fourteen perches and from the end of the north and by east line runing west and by north to the first Red Oake Containing within the sd lines and now laid out for one hundred and fourteen Acres be it more or less ...... according to the Certificate of survey thereof taken and Returned into the Land office att the City of St.Maries being date the twenty second day of October one thousand six hundred eighty seaven..."

  1. There is evidence for several Daniel Walkers in Talbot County Maryland during the period from about 1650 to about 1740, including a son, and a grandson. Data for different Daniel Walkers appears to have merged with that of Daniel (14) in the popular literature for the genealogy of this family.
  2. Elizabeth Walker dau of Daniel Walker who was son of John Walker of the Stand of Pilkington by Eliz: his wife, departed 1 Jul 1714.
    The phrasing "Daniel...son of John Eliz: his wife" is slightly ambiguous. As given here Elizabeth is probably intended to be interpreted as the wife of John, but it is possible that the author meant that she was the wife of Daniel. In anycase, this passage makes it clear that Daniel's father was John Walker of the Stand of Pilkington. The Stand of Pilkington is a location in Lancashire, England.
