 Includes NotesNotes for Teague Tracey:
The TRACY/TRACEY Family of Baltimore County
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most of the Tracy/Tracey families that are found in the northwestern corner of Baltimore county (including today's Carroll county, appear to be descendants of Teague Tracy and Mary James. There are inadequate records to "prove" the lineages of most members of this family, so there are many cases where the proponderance of the evidence needs to be considered. It is possible that most of the Tracey/Tracy family in the area may be descendants from Teague's son Tego. The early history of the family (before 1700) is also confusing. I believe that there is adequate evidence to assert that Teague had a close relative named Thomas Tracy. I suspect that Thomas was Teague's brother. Also looking at the records from early Prince George's county in the area of Mount Calvert Manor (this part of Prince Georges county came from Calvert county), we find that there are four men named Tracy/Tracey assoicated with the area. Teague, who owned the tract of land called "Cucholds Point", Thomas, Charles Tracey who was an innkeeper who died without issue or widow, and Hugh Tracy

Today the name is generally spelled TRACEY, though some branches of the family, such as those in Ohio use Tracy. The name also appears spelled as TREACY, and TRASY in the records. Note that Teague is an Irish name for Timothy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TRACEY'S LANDING is a locality in southern Anne Arundel county along with TRACEY'S CREEK a tributary of Herring Creek. These are located in the area inhabited by Richard James, and apparently where Teague and Mary (nee James) lived for a few years before moving to Baltimore County. Was the Creek and town named for Teague Tracey? One story I have been told, is that they were named for a man named Tracey who invented as improved tobacco prise. A tobacco prise was a press used to put tobacco into hogsheads. We know that Teague Tracey was a cooper by trade, and hence if the above story is true then the creek and locality were named after Teague Tracey.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is probably, the Teague that was transported to Maryland in 1675 by John Raven. Teague was living in Herring Creek, Anne Arundel County, MD when he married Mary James in 1694. Their first 4 children were born in Anne Arundel Co. The family likely moved to Baltimore Co., MD about 1700. Teague owned land in what is now the area of Towson State University. He was appointed overseer of roads by Tobias Starnsborough in November 1709.

On February 19, 1694 he was listed as a debtor in the inventory of John Abington, merchant, of Calvert County, Md.

On March 30, 1699, he and wife Mary sold land called Cuckold Point in Charles County, Md. On April 26, 1703, Teague and Mary sold 100 acres to James Chance. In January 1706, "Thady" Tracey patented 200 acres in Baltimore County and called it James Meadows. On September 9, 1709, he sold 100 acres, part of James Meadows to Mordeal Price. On June 10, 1706, he patented 100 acres, Tracey's Park in Baltimore County, Md.

Mary remarried to George Hitchcock by July 22, 1713 when she administered Teague's estate. Since George Hitchcock was a Quaker, one could deduce that Teague may have been a Quaker as well.
