      It is NOT proved that Anne was the daughter of William Thorowgood or sister of Adam. Thomas Keeling transported his wife, Ann, in 1634. They came to the colony on the "John & Dorothy"; Adam Thorowgood was Captain of the "John & Dorothy." Thomas and Anne named sons Adam and Thorowgood. Adam Thorowgood was the godfather of Adam Keeling; he named Adam Keeling his godson in his will and left him a breeding goat.

      Adam Keeling sold land on November 13, 1693 formerly belonging to John Martin which went to his oldest son, John Martin, who died intestate, so it went to my mother Ann, widow of Capt. Adam Keeling, now wife of John Richason, who gave it to son Adam Keeling, who now sells it to uncle Alexander Keeling. (Anne E. Maling, Princess Anne Co.
