About Thomas Mattingly, I

The exact date of arrival in America of the Mattingly family is unknown. So far, searches of passenger lists of all ships coming to the colonies in the early years has not revealed any member of the Mattingly family.

The first records of the Mattingly family in America are found in Maryland in 1664. It is possible that they arrived in late 1663 or early 1664. The family contained Thomas, the father, his wife Elizabeth, and their children: two sons, Thomas and Cezar, and two daughters, Judith (who is listed as Judith Turner) and Elizabeth. Thomas died early in 1664 without making a will. His widow, Elizabeth, was given letters of administration and signed an executors bond on July 24, 1664. An inventory of the family's good reveals that they had few possessions. Their livestock was a cow, a calf, and a heifer. They also had a still and most of the rest of the inventory comprised tools, personal clothing and housewares. A local attorney, Walter Pake, who married the widow Elizabeth took care of the legal affairs of the Mattingly family. On 1 August 1665 he entered the rights of the immigrant Mattingly family to 300 acres of land. Having paid their own passage, each member of the family was entitled to 50 acres of land. A certificate was issued in May 1666 for 300 acres of land in Charles County, Maryland to be known as "Mattingly's Hope" and the patent for the tract was issued on 4 September 1666 made out to the two boys of the family, Thomas and Cezar. One can conclude that, since Thomas did not petition for the land due to the family himself, that he died shortly after his arrival.

According to Herman Mattingly’s The Mattingly Family in Early America, the first Mattingly family is first found in Maryland in 1664. This researcher believes they had just arrived in 1663 or 1664, but has no record from passenger lists of their passage. The family included Thomas Mattingly, his wife Elizabeth, and four children: two sons Thomas and Cezar, and two daughters, Judith and Elizabeth. Thomas died in early 1664 without making a will. His widow Elizabeth was given letters of administration and she signed an executor's bond 24 Jul 1664. Livestock, a still, tools, personal clothing, and housewares were listed in the inventory. Meanwhile, Elizabeth married Walter Pake (or Peake), a widower. The Thomas Mattingly family was not indentured but paid their own passage from England, therefore was immediately entitled to 50 acres of land for each member of the family. Thomas Mattingly fell sick and died not long after arriving in Maryland and did not make application for the 300 acres to which his family was entitled. Walter Pake made the application for the 300 acres.

From Herman Mattingly’s book The Mattingly Family in Early America (1975) comes this introduction: "The name Mattingly has its origin in Hampshire County, England. It is derived from a Saxon chief, Matta, who belonged to a powerful tribe known as the Basingas who colonized the northern part of that county in the latter part of the 5th century. The tribe had pushed northward from the coast and into the Whiteriver valley. It was there that Matta settled his family who became known as Matta-inge-leagh, people-of-Matta’s clearing. The small community became known simply as Mattingley, and exists as a village by that name to this day."
