      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, 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.
