Edward MADDOCKS (MADDOX)
Edward Maddox, son of Cornelius, lived in Durham parish, in Charles county and Married Jane Speake, daughter of John and Winifred (Wheeler) Speake. The couple had nine children: Unkn named daughter who married James Skinner and had one son, Ann Maddox who married William Brawner, Rhoda Maddox, William Maddox who married Susanna Dixon, Elizabeth Maddox who married John Posey, Jane Maddox who married Samuel Mordock, James Maddox who married Theodosia Speake, Edward Maddox Jr who married Elizabeth ___ in Fauquier Co, VA, and John Maddox who married Jane Gray.
James MADDOCKS (MADDOX)
James Maddox, the first born of immigrant Cornelius, married Mary ____ prior to 1714, according to Parkville Mo genealogist Roberta Wiley. She says he lived in the vicinity of Charles Town, also known as Port Tobacco and at the time of his death, he left a widow and four children. The name of only one child is known with certainty, Notley Maddox (Maddocke) and a second, probably Walter Maddox. This name is significant and illustrates that the Notley Maddox name does not guarantee that descendents must be of Samuel Maddox, close friend of Governor Thomas Notley. It has always been common for people to name children after notable figures.
