Ann Taylor And Her Three Husbands

Ann Taylor, of Maryland, the daughter of Arthur Taylor and Margaret Hill, married James Greer.  She married 2nd, Lawrence Richardson on 6 June 1697.  Ann's third husband was Oliver Harriott whom she married on 14 March 1714 [he remarried].  The Robert E. Burke Genealogy blog had a post that mentioned the estate of Oliver Harriott as well as Lawrence Richardson.

Information from the William and Mary Quarterly, found at the U.S. Archives site:

The Harratt family.  The name occurs variously spelled.  It is undoubtedly preserved as Herod, in the name of Granville Herod Lawson, son of Walter. The St. John's and St. George's Parish records, of Baltimore Co., Md., refer to this family also.  Ann Harritt, the wife of Oliver Harritt, died May 14, 1716.  We have already seen the names of Oliver Hareot and Walter Bosley appearing in the same land transaction... . Oliver Harriott is a witness of the will of John Anderson, planter, of Baltimore Co., Md., will probated Mch. 26, 1711.  He is probably the one referred to in the sheriff's books of Balimore Co., Md., for the years 1762-3, as follows:  "Oliver Harriott's heirs.  To Hunting Quarter 50 acres."

I descend from Ann and her first husband, James Greer.

This blog has a series of posts entitled "When We Were Greers."
