Anything would be appreciated. you see my notes at

I am also interested in Pasco Dunn... who ends up on Kent Island, in Maryland... he floats around some of my families early relations on the Island... then sells everything and returns to Virginia. I suspect he was doing a bit of land speculation. This is what I have on him... sorry if it isn't well organized... just notes I've put together. if you have anything in Virginia about the Downes or Hawkins family, 1600's - I would be very interested.

Please feel free to contact me at

Quick time line of Pascoe Dunn of Elizabeth City...
1652 he immigrated to Maryland (Skordas, Vol 6, p. 159]
1662 patents 150 a. "Dunn's Hazard" in Maryland. [which his brother, Robert Dunn, sells in its entirety to Henry Carter by 1669]
1664 buys 100 acres on Kent Island from John Jenkins
1665 sells 100 acres on Kent Island to Arthur Jenn
1665 Pasco Dunn wit. the will of Macene Macum
1667 assigns over all right & title of bill of sale to Henry Downes
1669 last appears in the land records selling his interest in a patent to Edward Parkes. [????]
1695 a Pascoe Dunn is a foreman of a jury in Elizabeth City...

According to the patent book information we have Dunn's Hazard was patented by Pascoe Dunn... however in first Kent this appears, which shows he assigned his patent to Robert Dunn:

History of Queen Anne's County, Maryland, Frederic Emory, p. 103
The following personals, by an agreement entered into on the 5th of April 1652, promised and engaged themselves "to be true and faithful to the Commonwealth of England without King or House of Lords" {see Hanson's Old Kent, pp. 59 and 40): ..... [partial list] JOESEPH WICKES, WILLIAM ELLIOT, RICHARD BLUNT, MATTHEW READ, MARK BENTON, ISAAC ILIVE, JOHN WINCHESTER, FRANCIS BARNES, ROGER BAXTER, ROBERT DUNN (this is Pascoe's brother... possibility Pascoe had not moved to the Island as yet, as he is not included in this list).... My notes: Do I take this to mean that these people were loyal to Oliver Cromwell? If so, does that indicate they were part of the Puritian group that made its migration up from the Nansemond/Elizabeth city area????

In 1695 Pasco Dunn is a foreman in a jury in a case in Elizabeth City involving a Captain Jenkins. So, it appears he went back to Virginia.
