Birth*circa 1722Paul Thorowgood I was born circa 1722 at Worcester Co, MD. 
Anecdote*1723 Placing Paul Thorowgood as a son of a hypothetical brother of Rose (72) Thorowgood is purely hypothetical as no proof has been found to support this theory. He may have been somewhat older and possibly a brother of Rose. Or he may have been a son of another son of Francis (16) Thorowgood before he married Elizabeth White. Placing Paul here is merely a place holder to show him as a part of the Adam (1) Thorowgood family of Virginia until more information can be obtained. 
Land patented*1747He patented land in 1747 at Hard Struggle, Worcester Co, MD. It was in this year that Paul Thorogood patented 385 acres called Hard Struggle.2 
Marriage*circa 1760He married Elizabeth Miller (Miller?) circa 1760.1,3 
Land bought*1760Paul Thorowgood I bought land in 1760 at Indian River, Baltimore Hundred, Worcester Co, MD. It also seems plausible that he was the Paul Thoroughgood taxed in the household of Paul Waples in Baltimore Hundred in the years 1734, 1735, 1736, 1737 and 1739 (then in Somerset County).1 
Land bought1 March 1760He bought land on 1 March 1760 at Peppers Delight, Worcester Co, MD. It was on this date that Mary Lewis sold Peppers Delight (100 acres) to Paul Thorogood.4 
Will*21 November 1778Paul made a will on 21 November 1778 at Sussex Co, DE. To wife Elizabeth Thoroughgood; sons Miller, William, Elisha, Paul, Elihu and John Thoroughgood; daughters Anna and Elizabeth Thoroghgood. Extrs sons Miller and William Thoroughgood. Witt: Benjamin Phillips, Solomon Willey and Annabel Salmon.3 
Death*after 21 November 1778He died after 21 November 1778 at Sussex Co, DE. It was on this date that his will was written, but there was no probate date.3

Birth*circa 1730Robert Houston IV was born circa 1730 at Dagsboro Hundred, Sussex Co, DE.1,2 
Anecdote* There is some confusion regarding the parents of this Robert Houston IV. Miss Elissa Houston shows he was the son of John (wife Rhoda) and Catherine Bond Gheesling shows he was the son of Robert III (wife Elizabeth). John (wife Rhoda) and Robert III (wife Elizabeth) were brothers and both named sons Robert who were both born within a few years of each other. Dr. William R.M. Houston shows that Robert III's wife was Elizabeth Howard and that it was her son Robert IV that named a son Isaac Howard Houston which seems to settle the matter.3,4,1 
Marriage*circa 1752He married Mary Purnell circa 1752 at Snow Hill, Worcester Co, MD.2,3 
Marriage*circa 1757Robert Houston IV married Priscilla Laws, daughter of John Laws Sr. and Agnes Alexander, circa 1757 at Cedar Creek, Sussex Co, DE. After the birth of the second child, his wife died and he moved to Cedar Creek, Sussex Co, DE and later married Priscilla Laws.5,3 
Will*23 January 1788Robert made a will on 23 January 1788 at Sussex Co, DE.2 
Death*before 25 February 1788He died before 25 February 1788 at Sussex Co, DE. It was on this date that his will was probated.2
