About Alicia Grace Calvert, (See Note in 'About')

Alice Crossland is the daughter of John Crossland.1

Child of Alice Crossland and Leonard Calvert

George Calvert, 1st Baron Baltimore+1 b. 1578/79, d. 15 Apr 1632


[S6] G.E. Cokayne; with Vicary Gibbs, H.A. Doubleday, Geoffrey H. White, Duncan Warrand and Lord Howard de Walden, editors, The Complete Peerage of England, Scotland, Ireland, Great Britain and the United Kingdom, Extant, Extinct or Dormant, new ed., 13 volumes in 14 (1910-1959; reprint in 6 volumes, Gloucester, U.K.: Alan Sutton Publishing, 2000), volume I, page 393. Hereinafter cited as The Complete Peerage.

n.b. is this legit for this tree? All other Croslands have birth place of Almondbury, Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom.

There is some confusion about this person. It is possible that Leonard Calvert married two women (sisters or half sisters) named Grace and Alicia. This would account for the 2 accounts of her/their parentage:

Wikipedia (where from?): claims they were 2 people.

Parents of Grace Alicia Crossland: Thomas Crosland and Marina Hawksworth

History of Maryland by J. Thomas Schakf, Vol III, 1879 pg 51-55:

Parents of Grace/Alicia Crossland: Thomas Crosland (d. Aug 1587?) and Joanna (d. 1575)

She might have been born at "Crossland Hill" (See Foster's Visitations of Yorkshire, Pg 509) and was possibly descended from Roger de Crossland, temp. Henry III.

Unresolved parent conflict!

Most internet sources say: (For Example) "Grace (or Alice) Crosland was born about 1557 the daughter of Thomas Crosland of Crosland Hill and Marina Hawksworth. Grace (or Alice) married Leonard Calvert."

However, most reliable source so far says: The given name of Leonard CALVERT's wife was Alicia (or Alice), not Grace. Alicia was a daughter of John CROSLAND [or CROSSLAND], not of Thomas CROSLAND [or CROSSLAND]. The correct maternal ancestry of Sir George Calvert is given in a short article by Francis B. Culver in the Maryland Historical Magazine of December, 1934. Alicia was a daughter of John Crosland, not of Thomas Crosland.
