    'Ridgely Family'
    Before August 1, 1695, Colonel Ridgely married the widow of Maureen Duvall, who was Duvall's third or fourth wife but who had no issue by him. On that date Colonel Henry Ridgely had the High Sheriff of Anne Arundel County issue citations against John Duvall who had been granted letters of administration after his step-mother, Mary Duvall, had refused the executorship. In some manner Colonel Ridgely asquired the executorship and denounced the original appraisement of the personal estate. The original alue of the personal estate of Maureen Duvall as taken on February 14, 1694/5 was L947/5/8 plus 81,302 lis. tob. Colonel Ridgely and his wife, Mary, filed an account on the estate on May 15, 1699, when most of the L948 and many pounds of tobacco had vanished. Maureen Duvall the Younger petitioned the court to appoint his brother, John Duvall, his guardian as "his mother-in-law {step-mother}with whom he doth live do take little care for his proficiency in learning and lesser of his plantation for his future good."

    Maureen Duvall was born about 1625, in the Kingdom of France and settled on the south side of the South River in Anne Arundel County, province of Maryland circa 1655. The first tract of land patented by him in 1659 by Lord Baltimore was called 'Laval', the name of an ancient town, the capital of the present Department of Mayenne in France. He was a planter and merchant, and a public spirited citizen of the Province until his death at his estate, Middle Plantation, located on South River, and patented to him in 1664 by the Lord Proprietary. His public service consisted in part, with leadership in the Jacobite Party, and the Provincial Archives show his appointment to the Provincial Commission in 1683 by the Proprietary and Assembly, to lay out town sites and ports of entry for the encouragement of trade. He was the patentee of numerous tracts of land, and the purchaser of many others containing several thousand acres, as evidenced by the Public Land Records and his will dated, and probated in August, 1694. Founded on 9 December by Dr. Whirt Adams Duvall in Baltimore, Maryland.

    Maureen Duvall, merchant and planter, a Hugunot refugee, came to Anne Arundel County, Maryland, about the year 1655, and settled on the south side of the South River, upon a tract of land of several hundred acres, which was patented to him, by Lord Baltimore, by the name of "Lavel". He was b. about 1630-5; d. at his home, "Middle Plantation", on South River, Anne Arundel County, August, 1694, leaving a will whereby he devised to his widow and children several thousand acres of land, silver plate, etc., etc., he m. (firstly) __________ ________' m. (Secondly) Susanna (_________), who d. about 1692; m. (thirdly) Mary Stanton, who d.between 1761 and 1782; she m. (secondly) Col. Henry Ridgely, and m. (thirdly) Rev. Jacob Henderson, Rector of Queen's Parish, George's County, Maryland. Maureen Duvall contributed to the public cost of an expedition against the Nanticoke Indians in 1678; appointed by the General Assembly of Maryland, in 1683, a Commissioner to purchase sites and lay out towns, etc., etc., and was a prominant and useful citizen of Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

    The Duvall family is one of the oldest families of this state, being descebded from Maureen Duvall, a French Hugunot, who, during the religious persecutions in Fance, fled from Normandy, his native land, and came to America, settling in what is now known as Prince George County, MD, about the year 1640. Being a civil engineer, he was appointed by the proprietary government, a commissioner to lay out towns and ports of entry in the new colony.

    'South RIver Hundred'
    Maureen Duvall, the Hugunot immigrant from Nantes, France, held a large estate around South River, viz: "Middle Plantation" and "Great Marsh". He came with Colonel William Burgess.

    Maureen Duvall, The Huguenot
    No more striking figure in colonial history is found that the personal achievements of this fleeing immigrant from Nantes, about 1650.
    He came as one of the hundred and fifty adventurers, brought over by Colonel WilliM Burgess. He settled near Colonel Burgess, in Anne Arundel County, on the south side of South River and became one of the most successful merchants and planters of that favored section.
    When political influences were most active during the revolution of 1689, Maureen Duvall was among the leaders who sustained the Lord Proprietary. His name is found in Colonel Greenberry's letter to Governor Copley, as one of the Jacbin party, whose mysterious meetings he could not solve.
    The land records of Anne Arundel and Prince George Counties show that this Huguenot planter and merchant held a vast estate, and left his widow and third wife so attractive as to become the third wife of Colonel Henry Ridgely, and later the wife of Rev. Mr. Henderson, the commissary of the Chapel of England. Together they built old Trinity, or Forest Chapel, near Collington, in Prince George County.
    The will of Maureen Duvall is an intelligent one. It was probated in 1694; about the time of the removal of the Capital from St. Mary's to Annapolis.
    It is not known who were his first wives. One of them was closely allied to the celebrated John Larkin, a neighbor and enduring friend of Maureen Duvall. Five of his twelve children were married during the lifetime of the Huguenot.

    The last wife and widow of the Huguenot was Miss Mary Stanton. Before 1700 she became the wife of Col. Henry Ridgely, the immigrant, and with him, closed the administration of the estate of the Huguenot. The younger Maureen objected to his guardian, Col. Ridgely, but the courts did not sustain him.
