19) John Durden- May have been son of Stephen Durden/Darden (d.c.1680 Nansemond Co., Va.). Darden site has this:4 iii. John 'Durden' Darden was born before 1715, the first event for which there is a recorded date. John died 1715 at age unknown. From Darden: (See also note under his father.) “John Durden, of Ann Arundel Co., Md., will dated Oct 9, 1715, proved March 9, 1716/6. His wife, Eliza, received 150 acres of life and all other property; the land to revert to a son if any; otherwise to Dorthy Collingsworth. No Ch. Mentioned. He provided for the freeing 2 slave ch. at age 21 and therefore may have been a Quaker. (Md. Wills 14, 87; Annapolis.)” John Durden is called “son” by John Bayley in BayleyÕs 1710 will. A John Durden, of Anne Arundel County, aet about 30, in 1706 [b.c. 1674] is a deponent - Wills, xii,4. (Prerogative Court). Maryland Deponents 1634-1799, by Henry C. Peden, Jr. Willow Bend Books, Westminster, Md. 1-800-876-6103, 1995. [Note: It would seem, unless minors were listed as debtors to Dr. William Jones estate, that there are two John Durdens here, one who was a patient of Dr. Wm. Jones prior to 1678, and who may have died, and whose widow may have married John Bayley, and perhaps his son, born c.1674 who died c. March 9 1716, at age 40, leaving a wife Elizabeth-- and who may have been expecting a son, or who may have fathered unknown sons?]
