Peter CARRICO II
Ann GATES
Margaret __?__
WARNING:  I consider this family group sheet to be highly tentative.  I am not at all convinced it's correct.  I have done my best to find documentation supporting it, but records from the 1600s and 1700s are scant.  I'm not even convinced this is one Peter Carrico, that is, that the man who married Ann is the same man as the one who married Margaret.  I find nothing to document the identity of Margaret, though some claim her to be Margaret O'BRYAN and many claim her to be Margaret GATES, cousin of Ann.  Traditionally, the five sons mentioned in Peter's will have been assumed to be Margaret's, but there is also a line of reasoning that makes all of them sons of Ann, except for James.
Husband:  Peter CARRICO / CARICO II
Birth:  1681-90, MD presumably in Charles Co., MD
Death:  1765, Charles Co., MD 
Father:  Peter CARRICO I
Mother:  unknown

Many secondary sources give Peter's birthplace as France (or Normandy, France).  Peter was born in Maryland.  It was his father who was the immigrant, to Maryland in 1674.  There is no indication whatsoever of his father's birthplace in any primary record:  the "French connection" is a myth.

Marriage-1:  1720
Wife-1:  Ann GATES
Birth:  23 Jul 1690 presumably in St. Marys Co., MD 
Father:  Robert GATES of St. Marys Co., MD
Mother:  Dorothy __?__
Marriage-2:
Wife-2:  Margaret __?__
Birth:  in or bef. 1715
Death:  aft. 1767
Child with Ann GATES born in Charles Co., MD (presumably Bryantown Hundred):
1.  Peter CARRICO III, b. ca. 1722 
Why only one child in 15 years of marriage?
Children with Margaret  born in Charles Co., MD (presumably Bryantown Hundred): 
2.  John CARRICO I, b. ca. 1739 
3.  Thomas Ignatius CARRICO I, b. 1740/1 
4.  James CARRICO II, b. bef. 1745 
5.  Bartholomew CARRICO I, b. 1745? 
6.  Bazzil / Basil CARRICO I, b. 1750-60

  Jun 8, 1730 from Peter Carrico of CC, planter, to Abel Carrico of CC, planter, the lease of a part of a tract of land called Maidstone, as he has in possession and has made improvements upon sd land, containing about 40 acres.  This lease starts next Nov 1 and runs for 21 years.  Abel Carrico may not have more than 1 person, besides his own family, for a crop of corn or tobacco upon sd land.  Abel Carrico shall not sell any timber without the permission of Peter Carrico, nor waste timber.  Abel Carrico shall build what houses he has occasion of during sd term, at his own cost.  The yearly rent is 500 lbs of tobacco and cask.  Signed - Peter Carrico.  Wit - Jno Briscoe*, Jno Howard*.

  Mar 25, 1730 from Peter Carrico of CC, planter, to George Keyth of CC, planter, and Elizabeth, his wife, for the considerations already reserved and hereafter mentioned, the lease of part of a parcel of land called Maidston, now in the possession of sd Peter Carrico, situated on a branch of Piles Fresh, bounded by a tract of land now in the possession of John Piggeon called New Bradford, a tract of land in possession of Lawrence Lent called Canterbury, containing 50 acres.  George Keyth may cut down any timber or timber trees for the use of sd land (viz) for building, fencing, or tobacco hogsheads, during the term of 19 years, to commence from Dec 10 last past, in consideration of which George Keyth has paid Peter Carrico 2000 lbs of tobacco.  Signed - Peter Carico. Wit - Jno Briscoe*, Jno Howard*.
CC = Charles County; *indicates witness is a county official.
Abel Carrico is, presumably, Peter's brother.  I wonder why George Keech would request the recording of the lease to Abel.  Could this be transcriber error?

  Apr 6, 1764 from Peter Carricoe (Carrico) Jr of CC, planter, to Peter Carricoe (Carrico) Sr, of CC, planter, for 10,000 lbs of crop tobacco, a tract of land in CC called the Maid Stone, bounded by a bound tree of Thomas Hunt's land called Hunts Venture, the south side of the Fresh Run, a parcel of land Called Canterbury, a bounded white oak of Robert Gates, containing about 100 acres.  Signed - Peter

  Aug 18, 1764 from Peter Carico (Carrico) Sr of CC, planter, to Samuel Hanson of CC, merchant, for 10,170 lbs of crop tobacco, a tract of land in CC called the Maid Stone, bounded by Thomas Hunt's land called Hunts Venture, thence to a parcel of land called Canterbury, a bounded white oak of Robert Gates', containing about 100 acres.  If, however, sd Peter Carico Sr pays sd Samuel Hanson, the afd tobacco with legal interest from today, in three equal payments, the first payment by May 21, 1765, the second by May 21, 1766, and the third by May 21, 1767, then this deed to be void.  Signed - Peter Carico.  Wit - Richd Harrison*, Josias Hawkins*.  Margret, the wife of the sd Peter, released her right of dower to the within mentioned lands.  Recorded Jan 9, 1765.
CC = Charles County; *indicates a county official.
The mortgage was signed in 1764, but recorded in 1765.  I believe Peter must still have been alive at the time the deed was recorded or some mention would have been made of his demise.

p. 88 Page 400.  Aug 9, 1779 from Samuel Hanson of CC to Richard Carnes of St. Mary's County... Also hereby conveyed is part of a tract of land called Maidstone, being part of that part of sd tract which sd Hanson, on Aug 18, 1764, bought of Peter Carico...
CC = Charles County
Apparently, the mortgage payments weren't made because Maidstone fell into the hands of Samuel Hanson.

8.  Robert W. Barnes.  1992.  "Charles County Depositions, A-G."  Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin, v. 33, n. 4, pp. 693-711.  On p. 699:
CARRICOE, Margaret, age 52, stated she was the wife of Peter Carricoe, 28 Sept. 1767; CHLR 59:614.
We can take it as a given that Margaret probably fibbed about her age, so she was at least 52 when she gave this deposition.

9.  Homer E. Carrico.  1951.  "The Carrico Family." Filson Club Historical Quarterly 25:  217-252 (republ. 1991 as pp. 215-250 in Genealogy of Kentucky Families. Genealogical Publ. Co., Baltimore, MD; in 1997 as Broderbund CD-185).  [This article is known to contain errors; consult with caution.]  Homer gives a marriage date for Peter and Ann as "1720, Charles County, Maryland."  As documentation, he cites "Warrants Lib. EE, Folio 446 (Hall of Records, Annapolis, Maryland)."  Unfortunately, he doesn't quote his source, so one can't judge how well-founded the basis is for his claim regarding the marriage.  If Homer is correct, it's rather strange that Ann Gates is marrying first at 30 years of age.
