About Anders Nilsson Friend

In September, 1686 Nils Lawson (Nicholas Friend) was named Constable of Chester Township, but in early December, 1686 he became gravely ill and his son Andrew took over as Constable on December 3, 1686.

Anders (Andrew) was to become the progenitor of the Ivydale, Clay Co., West Virginia "Friend" line and Anders' son Israel was named ambassador to the Indians by the governor of Maryland in 1725.

Their second son, Johannes (John) was to be the progenitor of the Garrett Co. (formerly Allegany Co.) Maryland "Friend" line.

Johannes' grandson John Lewis Friend Sr. was the first white settler to the Garrett Co. area in 1765. The land he purchased from local Indians eventually became the town of Friendsville.

   	On 28 November 1732, Andrew Friend, age 75 years, came before the Court of Prince George’s County, Maryland. He told them he had no servants and no slaves and requested that he be made “levy free”. His request was granted (Prince George’s County Court Records, Book 9, Liber 5, page 112.
