About Edward Edward Day, Sr.

Edward Day, b. betw 1675 & 1704 of Nicholas [c1620], d. 1746. 

On March 25, 1722 Edward Day m. Avarilla Taylor, daughter of John Taylor and granddaughter of Arthur Taylor of Baltimore Co. (Faulkner, 10; St. John's Parish Register, 17-R)

Assuming he was at least 18 at his marriage, Edward Day was born not later than 1704. If he was an adult at the time of his father's will in 1704, he was born not later than 1686, and was 36 years old at his marriage.

In any event, he was younger than Nicholas and could not have been born earlier than 1675, since his mother Sarah was not likely to be younger than about 20 at the time of his birth. Assuming his birth took place before 1693, he was born in Anne Arundel County. 

Edward and Avarilla lived at Taylor's Mount. (Marys, SJPR 3-R) He witnessed wills in 1726 (Baldwin VI:11), 1732 (Baldwin VI:233), 1738 Baldwin VIII:48), and 1740 (Baldwin VIII:36) His own will was proved February 12, 1746 (BCW 25:4), and names 6 of his 9 children. John Day was executor and accounts were administered 15 June 1748. (Md Admin Accts 25:13).

An Avarilla died in 1734. This could not have been the mother, who was having children until 1744--unless Edward remarried, of which there is no record. Since two children are named Avarilla, it is most likely the earlier died in 1734, passing the name to the next daughter, born in 1735. An Avarilla married Patrick Lynch on February 24, 1746, 12 days after Edward's will was proved. The first daughter by this name was deceased at this time, and the second was just 11 years old, leaving the conclusion it was the widow Avarilla who remarried at this time. On June 15, 1748, the Administration Account was filed (Md Admin Accts 25:13) with John Day as executor and indicating that widow Avarilla had married Patrick Lynch. Children of Edward and Avarilla:
