Thomas Sheckles was born about 1680 perhaps in England. His parents and exact place of birth are unknown.  On Dec 11, 2701 Thomas wed Mary Budd in St. James Parish Anne Arundel County, Maryland, page 24 St. James Parish Records.  St James Parish, also called Herring Creek Parish, dates from 1663.  It was mostly the southern part of Anne Arundel County below West River and Muddy Creek in Lothian Maryland.  A more recent building of St James Church today is located on Rt 2 south of Annapolis.
