He was one of the first alderman of St. Mary's City. An acre of land was patented to him in St. Mary's City, known as "The Lawyer's Lodging." This would indicate that he practiced law as a profession, but he was also engaged in numerous mercantile pursuits as well and owned much land.

The following year he was appointed High Sheriff of St. Mary's County and a justice of the county court. In 1668 he was appointed a Commissioner of the Peace. he represented the county in the General Assembly in 1669, 1674, and 1675. He may also have served in other years, but the records are now lost.

Wilkinson, Rebecca (b. , d. BEF 14 SEP 1726)
Note: Rebecca Wilkinson's marriage to Colonel John Addison (No. XXX) alienated her children from her first marriage, with the exception of her youngest child, Barbara, who was a posthumous child and only an infant on her mother's remarriage.

There is no doubt that Colonel Addison profited from his marriage to the widow Dent and obtained a great deal of Thomas Dent's property.

In her will, Barbara does not mention her children by Thomas Dent, other than her daughter Barbara, who was made executrix and residuary legatee. Nor did the Dent children ever refer to their half-brother, Col. Thomas Addison (No. XXX).

Smith, Walter (b. AFT 1651, d. BEF 4 JUN 1711)
Note: Colonel Walter Smith lived at Hall's Craft in Calvert County, Maryland. That property had been bought by his father from Richard Hall--who was Col. Smith's father-in-law--and then given or left to Col. Smith.

He was commissioned as a captain of foot in Calvert County on Sep 4 1689, and as a Major of the county on Aug 17 1695. He was called Colonel in official records beginning in 1706. He represented the county in the Assembly in 1696, 1704, 1708, and 1711. He signed "Declaration of Calvert County for not choosing Burgesses," on Aug 20 1689, and the "Address from the Protestants of Calvert County to His Majesty," two documents having to do with the effects of the Glorious Revolution that had taken place in England the previous year. He seems to have been something of a Jacobite, however, as in July 1698 he was required to give security that he would appear at the next provincial court and drink the health of King William III.

He was a vestryman of All Soul's Parish at the time of its organization in 1692/3 and served until his death.

He served as Justice of Calvert County in 1694 and was made Presiding Justice on May 10 1699. He was named one of the Commissioners to treat with the Piscataway Indians in 1697. In 1706 the Assembly apopointed him, along with his brother, Captain Richard Smith, as a member of the commission for laying out towns and ports in Calvert County.

At his death his personal estate was apparised at 1612.5.8 pounds, inclsuing nineteen slaves and a sloop. He also heald more than 2600 acres in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, and Calvert Counties.

Brooke, Robert (b. 3 JUN 1602, d. 20 JUL 1655)
Note: Robert Brooke matriculated at Wadham College, Oxford, on Apr 28 1618. He received an A.B. degree in 1620 and an M.A. in 1624. He was ordained a priest in the Church of England but did not practice his calling in Maryland.

He lived in Whitchurch in Hampshire and in Battel, in Sussex, until he emigrated to Maryland on June 30 1650 with his second wife, ten children, and twenty-eight servants. He was granted 2000 acres for every ten people he transported, 8000 acres in all, by the Lord Proprietary and established his seat at De la Brooke Manor about twenty miles up the Patuxent River. The house would stand until it was torn down in 1838. He later moved across the river to Brooke Place, where he built another house, a near duplicate of the first.

Brooke imported the first pack of Englaihb fox hounds to America.

Brooke was issued two commissions in London, dated Sep 20 1649. One named him as commander of a new county and the second as a member of the Council of Maryland. The new county, named Charles County, was formed and Brooke named its commander on Oct 30 1650. When Maryland was brought under Parliamentary control in 1652, Brooke was named head of the provisional council, serving thus as acting governor of Maryland from Mar 29 to Jul 3 1652.

In 1654, his commissions were revoked and the act creating Charles County was nullified, Calvert County being formed in its place.

He and his second wife are buried at Brooke Place.
