About Elizabeth Walker

"It was four years later, in 1750, that Isaac was able to have Elizabeth (Stuart) Walker join him in America. Perhaps he feared retaliation from his homeland and that his hiding place in the forests of Maryland might be revealed."

"In February, 1754, Isaac Walker I received a large patent of land from the Lord Baron of Baltimore. The estate was known as Tugwelltown. Some historical data about the Walkers has been discovered. Lady Elizabeth (Stuart) Walker on August 26, 1771, waived dower, and Isaac, on that date, conveyed to their son, Nathan Walker (1756-1842), the Toaping Castle estate consisting of 188 acres of land. Also Nathan Walker owned 10 slaves, their total value being $574, and 317 acres of land worth $794. Of these 317 acres, 169 were in the tract known as “Toaping Castle” and worth $388.70. We learned this from the 1828 Tax List, Prince George’s County, Maryland, compiled by Prince George’s Co. Genealogical Society in 1985."


Re: page 300 of The Scots Peerage. Reference made to Elizabeth, daughter of James Stuart, 2nd Earl of Bute and Lady Anne Campbell, christened 8 March 1717 in Rothesay, Isle of Bute, Scotland.

There is no indication this was the same "Elizabeth Stuart" who married Isaac Walker and came to Maryland.
