Research Notes on Timothy Ragan/Reagan,Sr. as gleaned from contemporary records

The real proof for the naming of Timothy came from Holy Bible. You can find it in New Testament. Timothy is the name that does appear in the contemporary sources today.

Having reached at legal age (21 years), Timothy Ragan was one of three witnesses to the will of Richard Moss which was written on 15 Jul 1700 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. He was living in the area of Magothy River at that time.

He bought “Souldiers Fortune” from Christopher Miller on 14 Nov 1705, one hundred (100) acres of land which was surveyed for Richard Snowdon, Jr. on 08 Dec 1701 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. This land was located on ‘North Branch of Patuxant River in a place called ye fork.’

The 1706 tax roll of Baltimore County, Maryland listed Timothy Ragan. He and his family were living in area of “the Upper Part of North Side of Patapsco Hundred.” Then he was listed on 1707 rent rolls for Anne Arundel and Baltimore Counties, Maryland. And he was charged four Shillings for one hundred acres of land known as “Souldiers Fortune.” This land was located on “the North Branch of Patuxent River near Ivey Hill.”

Timothy Ragan was the one of three witnesses to the will of Nicholas Dorsey which was written on 15 Sep 1717 in Baltimore County, Maryland.

There is a clause written in Caleb Dorsey’s deed on Monday, 24 Mar 1721 to John Beale. It stated “50 acres part thereof whereon Timothy Ragan now lives.” This deed showed that Timothy Ragan, Sr. and his family were still living in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

First, there is a Bill of Sale document between Timothy Ragan of Baltimore County, Maryland and Daniel Hearne of Prince George’s County, Maryland for two (2) heifers on 10 Nov 1723. Then Daniel Hearne of Anne Arundel County, Maryland later executed the same Bill of Sale on 10 Jan 1728 for two (2) heifers back to John Ragan and Timothy Ragan, Junr. that he purchased from Timothy Ragan, Sr. previously. On the same document, these two Bill of Sale have had been approved by Provincial Court and were recorded in Archives of Maryland, Volume 697, page 310-311. This Bill of Sale provided the crucial evidence to prove the relationships between Timothy Ragan, Sr. and his two sons, John Ragan and Timothy Ragan, Jr. Also, here we find real signatory mark for him on this Bill of Sale. It is unique signature one ... “V.”

We will find that there is a clause written again in Caleb Dorsey’s deed on 26 Mar 1732 to John Beale. It stated “50 acres part there of whereon Timothy Ragan now lives.” It showed again that this is Timothy Ragan, Sr., and his family still lives there in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

Timothy Ragan must have had died before 14 Mar 1744 in Elk Ridge community, Anne Arundel County, Maryland. From 14 Mar 1744 deed from Basil Dorsey, son & heir of Caleb Dorsey, late in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, we found that Basil Dorsey “expressed his intentions to give to Timothy Regan where Mary Regan, mother of Timothy then lived.”
