From "Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties" p104-107

"Mareen [Duvall's] will was probated in 1694; about the time of the removal of the Capitol from St. Mary's to Annapolis. It is not know who were his first wives. His heirs, in order mentioned in his will were: his wife, Mary, who inherited a life interest in "Middle Plantation" with the remainder at the death of his stepmother; Elizabeth, who received 150 pounds sterling and 375 acres call "Bowdels Choice" in Calvert County; ..."

From http://www.ronulrich.com/ulrich/ed0615.html

"Her parental inheritance was 375 acres of "Bowdell's Choice" lying on the western shore of the Patuxent River, over which her father became engaged in a law suit with Thomas Bowdell (much to his chagrin). By 1673, one half of "Bowdell's Choice" had come into the possession of Robert Tyler Sr. and it was the 375-acre tract (unnamed) which was willed by him to his son Robert. The loss of the Calvert County deeds precludes when Bowdell conveyed to Tyler, but the law suit of 1683 tells us that it was purchased by Mareen Duvall and had not come to him as a dowry through any of his wives. This property was (at this time) only held by Elizabeth, her husband and her children. Elizabeth acquired possesion by marriage, at which time she threw off the guardianship of her step-mother and step-father. Her husband, Abraham Clark, was the only son and heir of Abraham Clark Sr., who had been transported into the province in 1654 by George Barrett and who left a personal estate at his death valued at 323.2.2 pounds. Abraham Clark inherited "Essington" from his parent."

"Claim of marriage (also) to John Roberts."
