      E. PHILIP JENKINS: He was born, according to his mother’s statement, on 7 March 1708/9 (CCR F2:10, 15 April 1714). John Scroggin gave him a mare and requested that the mark be recorded, noting that he was a minor (CCR H2:413, 23 Jan. 1720/1).

      He was twice married. His share in certain plantations owned by Capt. Walter Story prior to the latter’s death in 1726, as shown by a deed of division of these plantations into which he entered with his brother John Jenkins and John Chandler (CCR Z2:72, 29 Oct. 1745), augmented by a further share obtained by conveyance from Elizabeth, unmarried daughter of Col. Story (CCR O2:320, 16 Oct. 1739), can be explained only on the assumption that his first wife was Sarah (Story) Douglass, second daughter of Col. Story and widow of Joseph Douglass. They had three children: John, Mary and Sarah.

      Philip’s second wife was Ann, the widow of George Thomas (Md. Accounts 38:89, 28 April 1755), who also survived her second husband and executed a bond as administratrix of his estate (Md. Testam. Proc. 38:151, 6 July 1761). John Jenkins, son of Philip, did not long outlive his father. The inventory of the estate of John Jenkins, Jr. was signed by Samuel Smith, husband of his sister Sarah Jenkins, and by his half-brother Benjamin Douglass, only son of Joseph and Sarah (Story) Douglass, as relatives (Md. Inventories 75:304, 30 Nov. 1761), while the inventory of Philip Jenkins was signed by his daughters Mary Jenkins and Sarah Smith as relatives (78:10, 24 Sept. 1761). After the death of Philip Jenkins his lands were resurveyed (CCR L3:588, 24 Jan. 1765) and half given to Benjamin Douglass (probably in right of his mother) while the other half was divided between Anne Jenkins, Philip’s widow, and the two daughters’ husbands Samuel Smith and John Rose (husband of Mary Jenkins). Within two months these lands were sold to Benjamin Gwinn, owner of an adjoining tract. The deeds clearly show the various relationships (CCR L3:599, 640, 7 March, 20 March 1765).
