      Has anyone come across a Friendship Tongue? I would like to be able to tie up these loose ends.

      Friendship Tongue, Sr. b. 15 Oct. 1628 Eng.; m. Ann Harrison; d. 1655 St. NIcholas Cr., MD

      Friendship Tongue, JR. b. abt 1655 MD.; d. after 1685

      William Tongue b. abt 1685; d. aft 1732

      John Tongue b. abt 1732; m. Jean "Jane" Warren abt 1760 in Prince Georges Co., MD.

      William Tong b. 1756 Piscataway Crk., Prince Georges Co., MD; m. Eleanor Ford, Elizabeth Thomas

      I have quite a bit of info regarding William Tong b. 1756 to present. However, the info on his parentage is doubtful, I would be interested if anyone else has some of the same information.

      Good Hunting,
      Peggy

      Interesting record on Friendship. what are your sources of his marriage??? My information on Friendship is scant, but he died young about 26. He was the son of Henry and Mary (Ravin) and was christened at St. Clements Danes in London in 1624, some siblings were also christened there. These records I found on the LDS website. Somewhere I have a fairly detailed paper written on him by Harry Wright Newman that I got from the Charles County Community College in the genealogy collection of the genealogical society.

      I descend from Thomas Tongue Sr.(1746-1822) of Anne Arundel County, he was married to Elizabeth Roberts and they are burried at St. James Church in Tracy's Landing.

      His son, Thomas Jr.(1774-1826) was married to Ann Harrison daughter of Benjamin Harrison. This is why I found your marriage for Friendship interesting. The Harrisons were a well know Quaker family that lived at Holly Hill in southern most AA County.

      I have never proven lineage about Thomas Sr., but I believe his father was James and before that was Thomas. Noone has shown me anything concrete and what I have is full of mistakes and confusion. But most researching the line believe it started with Friendship.

      Not sure that this helps, I've been more focused on the more recent generations and haven't spent a lot of time on this part of the line at all in years. And we did visit the London churches associated with the Tongues years ago. Henry and Mary were married in St. Bartholmew the Less in London in 1617. But with no records to prove the relation I've moved on to other lines. Maybe someday I will work on that one.

      Most of my info on the early Tongue families comes from the two editions of the books by Herald Stout. He is fairly careful about stating what he thinks he knows, and what are his educated guesses. Friendship had a posthumous son Friendship, it seems. Friendship Jr. is given as "possibly the father of William." William is the "most likely father of John." William and all the rest are most likely the children of John (although I have also seen it suggested that the father's name is really a James, at present I think John is more likely, given tax records and so on).

      Thanks so much for the reference to the IGI. The last time I tried it for Tongues, either the relevant registers had not yet been transcribed, or I just totally missed them somehow....

      I have long felt that Friendship's line and the line of the first Thomas Tongue are closely connected, but have no proof. Stein's history of Calvert County names the Thomas who was transported in 1650 as a son of Friendship, but this seems unlikely to me. There is a Thomas Tongue who has a lot of children baptized in the same church as Henry's children back in London, I see in the IGI, who seems to be a bit older. But even so, there is a gap between the early Thomas Tongues and the ones in your line.

      I agree with you that the Thomas who married Elizabeth Roberts was most likely the son of James, who was the son of another Thomas Tongue. The probate record is very hard to interpret---too many Thomases, at the very least. I more or less gave up on figuring out if or how I was cousins with descendants of Thomas & Elizabeth (my ancestor is Eleanor Tongue who married Daniel Rankin), although it does seem very likely to me still that all are connected somehow or other.
