Thomas Tredway, the progenitor of this line was born ca 1700 (1). His place of birth is a mystery, as well as his parental lines. I have not been able to find birth, arrival or apprentice records for him in England, Maryland, or anywhere else for that matter. The books "Baltimore County Families" by Robert W. Barnes, and "The History of the Tredway Family" by William T. Tredway made the assumption that this Thomas was the son of Richard Treadway and Jane Parker. At first glance it would be easy to see how the assumption was made if it were not for one crucial piece of data; the Will of John Tredway (son of Thomas and Mary Ball Tredway). John's will dated 1765 lists his brothers; Daniel, William, Aaron and Moses, his sister Mary Cunningham, and his father Thomas Tredway. The other Thomas of Richard died in 1749 without issue. He does mention his beloved friend Thomas Tredway, administrator, as well as leaving his estate to Mary Cunningham if his nephew Thomas Brown should pass; showing there was some kind of connection between the two families. Thomas our subject, lived in Bush River, Baltimore Co., Maryland from around 1718 to 1770 (1); later becoming Harford Co., Maryland in 1744. At one time he was a boarder of Antil Deaver and later he lived and worked with John Webster in 1719 at "Best Endeavor" (1). Since Thomas "lived" with Antil Deaver, was he bound to him at some point prior to being a boarder? The other Thomas was bound to Antil in 1720, showing Antil was a Master, common in Colonial days. The common ages for children to be bound were six to nineteen and nineteen was the age Thomas went to work for John Webster. Or, was Thomas just a relative of Antil's, or perhaps his wife's?

     Thomas married four times; his first wife was Ann _____ (possibly Deaver) (1724 -1734), 2nd wife was Mary Bull/Ball (1734 -1741/42), 3rd wife was Elizabeth McComas (1743 -1759/60), and his fourth wife was Mary Lee Lynch Gittings (1761 -1782). Thomas had nine children, was an Inn Holder, and a farmer owning a large plantation and several tracts of land on the upper Chesapeake Bay, near Joppa. His staple crop was tobacco.

     Thomas Tredway Deposition -1774 (snippet) : Thomas states the following: "He was 74 years of age, and that he knew Antil Deaver since coming to this county in 1718, when he was a boarder of Antil's. He also stated that he worked for John Webster in 1719.". it is not clear if the statement meant that Thomas arrived in Baltimore County in 1718, or that Antil Deaver arrived at that time.(1)

     Gentleman's Progress-The Intinerarium of Alexander Hamilton, 1744 University of Pittsburg Press, 1948:    "I put up at one Tradaway’s about 10 miles from Joppa"..."Thomas was a large pursy man"...On his journey home: "I dined att my old friend Tradaway's, whom I found very much indisposed with fevers. He told me it had been a very unhealthy time and a hot summer."(2)


    Thomas married first to Ann _____, (Baltimore County Families, pg. 651) ca 1724 in Maryland. Ann witnessed the Will of John Deaver on 03 Jan 1731 in Baltimore Co., Maryland. She also appeared on 18 Mar 1731 before Thomas Sheredine, Dep. Commissioner and swore an oath that she was a witness to the said Will (3). Ann probably died not too long after the birth of her last child John as I could not find any other records of her, and then we see Thomas marrying again in December of that same year. Seely Foley believes that Ann was Ann Deaver, daughter of Richard Deaver and Mary Ruff. This is how Thomas acquired Deaver land for his Inn in 1752. Also, although the names were common for that era, Richard and Mary did have children among others with the names of Daniel, Thomas, Mary, and John. Granted this is circumstantial, but at least it is feasible (Thank you Seely).

     Thomas Tredway married second to Mary Bull/Ball on 27 Dec 1734 in Baltimore Co., Maryland (9). Mary was born 13 Jan 1707/08. Mary seems to have died sometime after her son Martin was born in 1741 and before 1743. As noted above in the snippet of Dr, Alexander Hamiltion; "the fever" was present at the time of his visit in 1744. Could Thomas, Jr., Mary, Cripsin and Martin have succumbed to it?

     Thomas Tredway married for the third time to Elizabeth McComas ca 1743 in Maryland. Elizabeth was born 04 Nov 1718 in Baltimore Co., Maryland to William McComas and Hannah Scott. William McComas mentions his daughter Elizabeth Tredway in his Will, dated 01 Sep 1747, Baltimore Co., Maryland, leaving her a slave named Phylis (13). Thomas and Elizabeth witnessed the Will of Mary Deaver on 29 Jul, 1749, along with his daughter Mary Cunningham (4). Elizabeth died sometime after 1759, per Deed above, and 1761 when Thomas again married.

Also, on 04 May 1759, Thomas and wife Elizabeth conveyed to John Goodwin 40 a. White Oak Bottom and 70 a. Strawberry Hills.." (16)

William McComas Will (13)

     Thomas married for the fourth time to widow Mary (Lee) Lynch Gittings on 26 Jan 1761 in Long Green Valley, Baltimore Co., Maryland (17). Mary was born ca 1708, Baltimore Co., Maryland, the daughter of James Lee and Margaret (Kidde) Wilson (Quakers), widow of John Wilson . Mary was married first to James Lynch. She married second to Thomas Gittings. She died 11 Dec 1782, and is buried in the Gittings family plot in the Long Green Valley Cemetery, Baltimore Co., Maryland (18). Thomas Treadway and Mary did not have children together, but Mary had children by her first and second husbands.

Mary Lee Tredway Will (19)

     In Thomas' golden years he retired from Inn keeping and settle in Long Green Valley, Baltimore Co., Maryland.  Note: Thomas was left a mourning ring in the Will of Edward Wakeman of Baltimore Co., Maryland in 1753 (probably what was known as a mourning ring), as well as a ring from John Atkinson in the same year. According to Claudia Angel and Carol Hyslop, another Edward Wakeman mentioned his son in law John Tredway in his Will dated 1722 in Baltimore Co., Maryland. Could this mean that Thomas's father was John? This is the closest that we have come to seeing any mention of a John Tredway, let alone two Tredway's mentioned in two Wills like this. Please note that some family members went by Tredway and others Treadway. I will try a spell them correctly when I find the info.

    Thomas outlived all four of his wives. He died at the age of 86 years in 1786, at the home of his son Daniel Tredway. He is buried on that homestead in Madonna, Harford Co., Maryland. From Jared Treadway: Daniel was the heir at law of his father Thomas. He sold the 10 acre tract of land called Strawberry Hills and Turkey Hills for 5 shillings to Herman Stump. The land is described as that being near land condemned for a mill by the name of the Old Mill, and which stands on James Run on the north side of the post road bordering land owned by John Bull called Bull's Lot, together with all houses, outhouses, stables, coach houses, improvements and advantages.

Daniel was a farmer, not unlike his father Thomas. His main crop was tobacco. Daniel was the town Crier of Belair a Trustee of the Poor (23), he belonged to the Gunpowder Meeting, Society of Friends, and was a well respected member of the community. He made his home in the Upper Node Forrest, 1/4 mile from the Spesutiae Church, now the Bethel Church, in Harford Co., Maryland.

Family of Aaron Treadway (of Thomas)

     Aaron Tredway, born 02 Nov 1744 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, migrated to Virginia, then to North Carolina, and settled in Kentucky. He married Eleanor "Nelly" Bounds, the daughter of Jesse A. and Nancy Ann "Ann" (Bird?) Bounds. Nelly was probably born in Virginia or North Carolina (the boarders were in continuous flux back then) and her father moved between those places. Aaron was listed in a Pittsylvania Co., Virginia deed record. On 04 December 1769 Aaron was shown owning 221 acres of land located on the Pigg River, Virginia. It has been said that Aaron had all girls, however, the 1790 Burke Co., North Carolina census lists four males in his household; 2 over 16 years of age (1 being Aaron himself), and 2 males under 16 years of age, and 5 females (one being "Nelly"). Aaron purchased land on the Big Ivy River in Buncombe Co., North Carolina on 19 Jul 1794, and entered on 04 Nov 1778. Nelly was left $150.00 in her father's Will (dated in 1804, Knox Co., Tennessee). There were a couple of unmatched Tredway males that "may possibly" have been Aaron and Eleanor's children; again, "possible". They are listed below as "Tentative". Aaron was listed next in the 1810 Hopkinsville, Christian Co., Kentucky Census with 1 male 45 +, 1 female under 10, 1 female 10-15, 2 females 16-25. Aaron may have died sometime after that Census and before the 1820 Census, possibly in either Christian Co., Kentucky or Gallatin Co., Illinois as he was listed in the 1810 Territorial and Gallatin Co., Illinois records, claiming infirmities. So he and Nelly may have migrated and died there. Aaron's Will was made in 1814. Aaron and Nelly's children were (Note it is not certain of the order of the daughters, just an estimate):

1. John Tredway (Tentative), born ____ - 1774 (Per 1790 Census).
