The following case ...shews several assignments of a patent, and illustrates some
John Bayley by his petition, sets forth that he has a legal right to three hundred acres of land, called Nunsoake, bought and paid for by his father, who was afterwards killed in the proprietary's service3ò4that being under age, he is incapable of obtaining possession thereof, and therefore prays
that his lordship would confirm to him the said land, &c."
Underneath the petition are the following entries.
" On the back side of a pattent granted to John Nun, for three hundred acres of land, bearing date the 11th day of
October, anno 1647, was thus written, (viz.) This patent, with all my right, title and interest, is assigned over to John Bayley or his assigns, this seventeenth of March, 1653, by

"The governor without respecting the assignment of Nun's administrator to Bayley that of Elinor Bayley (apparently the widow of John) to Philips, or the subsequent assignments between Philips and Barber, determines the land to have become escheat by the original patentees dying intesttate and without lawfull issue, and passes a grant to Bayley, the petitioner."
A case involving the charter of a vessel came before the court at its 1664 session. Raymond Staplefort and John Bayley were joint owners of the bark Providence of Patuxent. Staplefort chartered this boat, the charter being made at Foulstone Creek, or Oyster Bay, New York. It was chartered to two freighters [The two freighters were in fact John Hawkins, -a John Hawkins married into the Rawlings family by way of marrying into the Griffin family, and gave John Rawlings his bequest of a named horse- and Thomas Wills/ Wells] who soon afterwards told him he might never see his vessel again. Staplefort asked the court to put the freighters under bond to return the ship in safety.
The freighters sued Staplefort for holding up the vessel. It then developed that Bayley and Staplefort had had a quarrel, which had been heard at a previous session of the court. The dispute broke out again and at a later session is was shown that while Bayley was away from home Staplefort had removed from his room a quantity of merchandise, and hid it in various places. The sheriff's [Thomas Sprigg] tour of discovery to locate various articles is told in detail. Staplefort was brought into court October 14, 1665 charged with theft, but after considerable conflicting testimony had been offered, the jury refused to convict him of felony and he was released (pages 375, 379, 435, 450, 498-503).

|Seven seamen from Weymouth, England, belonging to the ship or pink John of Weymouth, William Drady master, could not collect the wages due them. The term pink was applied to different types of vessels of which the chief common characteristic was a high, narrow stern. Accordingly, they authorized Richard Bayley or Bayly, innholder, then of Harvey Town, Calvert County, to sue John Parker, Captain Drady's executor, for their time and service done in the pink (post, p. 258). Bayley did sue Parker, and also William Dare, who had become in turn executor to Parker (post, pp. 166, 347, 410), and the case was settled out of court. Dare paid over to Bayley 6000 pounds of tobacco, and Bayley gave him a receipt for it, and a release from all wages & Demands whatsoever belonging or in any wayes apperteining to the Said Seamen . . . & all & Euery other matter Cause or thing whatsoever from ye beginning of ye world unto the date of the release. Bayley had had to be prodded into giving the release. On the backside of it there is a note signed by George Masson, deputy sheriff of Calvert County, that he had arrested Richard Bayly in ye Sute of William Dare ye first munday after ye Provinc Court held in ffebry 1675 [/6] & ye said Richard Bayly was Discharged from me ye day following aboute ten of ye Clock in ye morning (post, p. 259). And the release was not signed sealed and delivered until after the Said Bayly was discharged from ye Sheriffe (ibid.).|
He was my great-to-the-eighth power grandfather, by way of his son, Thomas, and his grandson, Groombright.
Groombright Bailey left Maryland with his family around 1780, stopping for a few years near Old Redstone Fort in western Pennsylvania, and then moving on with an adventurous group to land at what is now Cincinnati in 1788. After some hard years battling floods and natives, Groombright, by then an old man of 85, travelled down the Ohio with his wife, Mary (a spry 75), and their three youngest children (two unmarried sons and a daughter who had married a widower and inherited three or four small children). Groombright died along the way and was buried in Illinois on a bluff overlooking the Wabash River in 1817.
