OTHER KEITH/KEIFE FAMILIES IN MARYLAND:  

Cornelius Keith likely had other family members in Maryland.  He may have been born in Maryland – or transported from the British Isles to the Americas as a minor, while accompanying his family.  Its worth investigating other Keith/Keif families listed as living in Maryland prior to Cornelius Keith arriving in the Colony of Virginia around 1709.

Keith’s who appeared to have families according to Maryland records include the following people.  (Note: There were other “individual” Keith/Keif’s listed on records in Maryland – to review all the Keith/Keif’s I have noted in Maryland prior to 1709, go to the Keith Family Info page listed below):

(For sources, see the Keith Family source page in this website:  https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/keith-family-info/ ):

The following Keith/Keif families are the ones of note I have seen that are probably worth investigating:

George Keith:
1670 George Keith wife Dorothy Keith – Calvert and Charles Co, MD locations

Constantine Keife
— 1672 transports his family to St Mary’s Co, MD
wife – Joane Keife
daughter – Elinor Keife
son – Arthur Keife
—1674 Constantine is executor of Roger Shehee decd estate,
—1675 suit against Roger Shehee estate by Garrett VanSweringen for use of his physick (Robert Harper servant) who treated Shehee for illness but wasnt paid.

——–1688 Arthur Keife appears in St Mary’s Co, MD re tobo collections
———1699 Arthur Keeth deceased — St Mary’s Co, MD

William Keeth
—1675 recd a certificate in MD
—1676 granted 100 acres in St Mary’s Co, MD
—1682 survey of 50 acres in St Mary’s Co, MD
—1695 is deceased with Daniel Sheridan as admin of estate in Calvert Co, MD.

James Keith  (Note:  This James Keith appears to live in Calvert Co, MD, and is noted in transactions in Richmond, Virginia – in the Northern Neck of Virginia – and moves to Beaufort County, North Carolina around 1707.  There is no proof of any relationship to Cornelius Keiffe/Keith of Stafford Co, Va – but the fact that the Keith family appears to have come from Maryland into Virginia, and then appears to head to the Virginia/North Carolina border makes this a person to look at and see if any additional documents can be located in Maryland regarding the family he came from and others he was related to in Maryland).
—1692 appears in Richmond, Va recs – as a JP in Calvert Co, MD.
—1693 witnesses Richard Gardner’s will in Calvert Co, MD.
—1699 signs in capacity for St Maries Co, MD on Baker Brooke’s will
—1707 Mr Haynes (or Haines) via his atty Edmond Pearce, conveys 635 acres known as Smith’s Point to Mr James Keith late of Maryland, in Beaufort Co, NC.
—1709 James Keith conveys 635 acres to the Hon Thomas Cary Esq in Beaufort Co, NC
—1709 George Moy appoints James Keith as his atty in Beaufort Co, NC
—1710 John Nelson and wife Ann assign 260 acres on North River by Crany Isl in fork of Eastermore Cr to James Keith in Beaufort Co, NC
—1710 James Keith is appraiser of George Harcole decds estate in Beaufort Co, NC

Robert Keife (Keith) missionary:wife Mary Keith  (Note:  This is probably the least likely to be related to Cornelius Keith – BUT you never know, he may have had a child who became an adult and stayed in Maryland/Virginia – I’m placing him last on the list, but keeping an open mind in case additional documents regarding any children he may have had in the Americas appear – same with Governor William Keith of PA, and the missionary George Keith (not the same as the George Keith married to Dorothy above).  George Keith the missionary was with the same religious association as Robert Keith – George the missionary (who was in this area around the same time as Robert around 1700-1715) came to Virginia and Maryland, but only appeared to stay for short visits – he appears to have spent most of his time in the New England area).
—1706 recd 446 acres in Somerset Co, MD
—1716 Robert and Mary now in Great Brittain convey 446 acres to Samuel Handy Sr in Somerset Co, MD.

VIRGINIA: 

1709 About – arrival to Colony of Virginia – In 1739 Cornelius Keith signs and affidavit indicating he arrived in Virginia around 30 years ago – indicating he arrived in the Colony of Virginia in 1709.  This time/frame fits him getting married in Maryland, and then moving with his family from his old Colony of Maryland, across the Potomac River to his new home in the Colony of Virginia.
http://interactive.ancestry.com/49387/FLHG_VAAncestorsAdventurers-0033/112152?backurl=http%3a%2f%2fsearch.ancestry.com%2fcgi-bin%2fsse.dll%3fdb%3dFLHG-VAAncestorsAdventurers%26gss%3dsfs28_ms_db%26new%3d1%26rank%3d1%26msT%3d1%26gsln%3dKeith%26gsln_x%3d0%26MSAV%3d1%26uidh%3dm37&ssrc=&backlabel=ReturnSearchResults&rc=673,1494,783,1524

(Note: It does not say Cornelius came from Ireland or Great Britain. It only says he arrived in the colony. In reviewing the Hollis family (who also match the same Y-DNA numbers as several Keith/Keif and Goin/Gowen descendants), there were several times that the Hollis family travelled back and forth from the Maryland Colony to the Virginia Colony, receiving land grants when they moved across the Potomac River from one colony to the other.

Since this does not say Cornelius Keith came from Ireland or Great Britain, the possibility that he came from Maryland, or another American colony, to Virginia is an open question.   For an example of families that moved back and forth from Maryland to Virginia in the Northern Neck area see John Hollis b. abt 1612-1615 here:  https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/1613-to-1616-john-hollis-of-md-and-va/ ).

1728 November 16, – Col. William Byrd visited with the Cornelius Keith family: on his return trip after surveying the dividing line between Virginia and North Carolina. Byrd gave a most bleak description of their living conditions in his “Histories of the Dividing Line betwixt Virginia and North Carolina.” …. “We gave orders that the horses should pass Roanoke river at Monisep ford, while most of the baggage was transported in a canoe. We landed at the plantation of Cornelius Keith, where I beheld the wretchedest scene of poverty I had ever met with in this happy part of the world. The man, his wife and six small children, lived in a pen, like so many cattle, without any roof over their heads but that of heaven. And this was their airy residence in the day time, but then there was a fodder stack not far from this inclosure, in which the whole family sheltered themselves at night and in bad weather. However, it was almost worth while to be as poor as this man was, to be as perfectly contented. All his wants proceeded from indolence, and not from misfortune. He had good land, as well as good health and good limbs to work it, and, besides, had a trade very useful to all the inhabitants round about. He could make and set up quern stones very well, and had proper materials for that purpose just at hand, if he could have taken the pains to fetch them. There is no other kind of mills in those remote parts, and, therefore, if the man would have worked at his trade, he might have lived very comfortably. The poor woman had a little more industry, and spun cotton enough to make a thin covering for her own and her children’s nakedness. I am sorry to say it, but idleness is the general character of the men in the southern parts of this colony as well as in North Carolina. The air is so mild, and the soil so fruitful, that very little labour is required to fill their bellies, especially where the woods afford such plenty of game. These advantages discharge the men from the necessity of killing themselves with work, and then for the other article of raiment, a very little of that will suffice in so temperate a climate. But so much as is absolutely necessary falls to the good women’s share to provide. They all spin, weave and knit, whereby they make a good shift to clothe the whole family; and to their credit be it recorded, many of them do it very completely, and thereby reproach their husbands’ laziness in the most inoffensive way, that is to say, by discovering a better spirit of industry in themselves….”
