Douthit/Douthid Family

Robert Andrew Douthit, born 1683, Coltrain, Londonderry, Northern Ireland, was a Quaker and his wife belonged to the Presbyterian Church in which thieir son, John (born 1709), was baptized and brought up. When John was 15 years old, he came to America with his parents and they lived in Monocacy, Maryland. He was a weaver by trade and worked in PA, NY and MD. In 1738 he married Mary Scott of Maryland who was a daughter of Joseph Scott.

Who is Thomas Doudith - ...."Thomas Doudith was listed in 1734 as not burning his tobacco properly and in 1735 (Solomon Hedges) was named Constable for Monocacy Hundred (MD), replacing Thomas Doudith, possibly a relative, who was incapable of duty." -- Pioneers of Old Monocacy, The Early Settlement of Frederick County, Maryland 1721-1743, Grace L. Tracey & John P. Dern

Second Generation:

On May 2, 1740 John Toudith had his daughter Eliesabetha baptized by Pastor Stover at Manaquesen with Heinrich and Eliesabetha Bischoff standing as sponsors. John Douthet settled just north of Robert Wilson on land he had surveyed in Feb., 1742. His 50 acres, which he called "Douthet's Chance" began "at a white oak standing about 50 perches easterly from Flat Run, a branch of Toms Creek." In 1750 John Douthet conveyed this land to Alexander MacKeen who had it enlarged by a resurvey. In passing, we should note a David Doudeth who signed Joseph Wood's 1745 petition for a rerouting of the Monocacy Manor Road. -- Pioneers of Old Monocacy, The Early Settlement of Frederick County, Maryland 1721-1743, Grace L. Tracey & John P. Dern
