      In Gust. Skordas' "Early Immigrants to Maryland", 1912, "Robert Holt, immigrated 1646 with wife and 4 children" (2, fol, 229, 550)

      Robert Holt was issued a land warrant to lay out 400 acres "in any place within this province southward of Patuxtent River". (Patents ABH.32) Edward (Edmund) Hudson was associated with Robert Holt and was living in the same household.

      Edward defaulted on a bond in 1650 and the court allowed Robert Holt to "attach his estate" for the cost. (p. 135)

      In the Maryland Archives continued (10-109/112): November 6, 1651: The St. Marys court heard depositions concerning domestic problems between Robert Holt and his wife, Dorothy Heywood Holt. Robert reported that Dorothy threatened to murder Him. A witness reported that he saw Dorothy and Edward Hudson "goe to bed together as if they were man and wife", with other witnesses stating the same thing. One witness stated that Dorothy "hoped her husband might rott limb from limbe" and that her "heart was soe hardened against him she would never darken his door again." She held resentment toward her son, Richard, stating that she hoped he would end his days on the gallows. As punishment, Edward Hudson was to be whipped and to live a least 30 miles from the Holts. Dorothy was to be whipped and live at least five miles from Robert, not with Edward Hudson.

      In "Crime and Punishment in Early Maryland", by R. Semmes, p. 184. This book recounts the above. It states further: "After hearing all the evidence, the court found Dorothy and Edward Hudson guilty of adultery. Hudson was sentenced to receive thirty lashes, while Dorothy was to be given fifty stripes. In order to prevent Edward from having further adultery with Dorothy , he was to leave St. Marys. If he returned without the permission of the Governor, he would receive another whipping. Dorothy was told that she must live at least five miles away from her husband's house, and if in the future she soiled his reputation by loose living, she would be severely whipped. After this sentence was pronounced, the court reversed itself. The judge told them if they made a humble submission, acknowledged their offense, asked for pardon and promised amendment, then the Governor might be willing to remit the punishment which the court had ordered. Dorothy and Robert would be allowed to live together as man and wife if they came to an agreement

      Robert mentioned his sons David and Richard in this deed, it cannot be read; however, a month previous he had given one half of the 100 acres called Randalls Point to David. He is the only child who remained in Maryland. A court-ordered inventory of the goods of Robert Holt was returned December 9, 1662. It showed substantial holdings in livestock, farm implements, tools, and household furniture. Except for his land patent of 1649, records of his landholdings have been lost in the destruction of St. Mary's County deed records. From all evidence, Robert existed and achieved some degree of success during his time in Maryland. of his four children, David died in St. Mary's County, Maryland in 1678 or 79. Richard will be discussed later in this research. He died in Essex County, Virginia in 1693. Dorothy, Jr. received the bequest of land in Maryland but went with her mother to Virginia where in 1665 she bound herself to Henry Aubrey, to serve him for five years, to do household work but not "working the ground." She subsequently married and disappeared from record. Elizabeth also received land from her father in Maryland but was in Virginia in 1672 when Edward Hudson left her a cow. No further records have been found.
