THE STORY AS I KNOW IT
The Nash family were early Irish
immigrants on the Eastern shore of Maryland.
They were probably Quaker. The Quakers in Virginia
were not tolerated. Some stayed and took it, but
many moved into Maryland. The Nash family were among
the first settlers to move up the Chesapeake
Bay to Kent Island. Kent Island is the
current eastern base of the Bay Bridge to Annapolis on the
Thomasin Mary Nash was born on
Kent Island about 1671. Her parents were Richard
Nash and Ann Wheeler Blunt.
The will of Richard Nash,
written in 1679, names his daughter Thomasin, re Maryland Calandar of Wills,
Vol I (maybe IV, it is hard to read my writing) by
mother's mother may have been named Thomasine.
Perhaps that is where the curious name comes from.
mother had a son, Thomas,
who died within a year or two of when Thomasin was
Thomasin Nash wed
Bouldin by 1688. They lived in Cecil county, the
northeast corner of Maryland. The Cecil
County Anglican church was St. Stephens established in
1692. Records exist from 1693. They contain some
records that predate the church, such as their first
child, born Jan 1689. I've spelled the names as they
are in the church records. The family continues to
this day in the same area, but they have settled on Boulden as the
spelling of the name.

It is not known when either Thomasin or William Boulding died.
There is a cemetery at St. Stephen's and I would guess
they are buried there, but I do not known that nor have I
found it in the records.
