  • Marriage (1): Arabella Roach about 1696 in Somerst Co

John Cullen had surveyed for him and patented land in old Somerset as an early settler (survey date shown):

(1) Dec 7 1698: "Hap Hazard" for 70a in Annemessex neck
(2) Jul 3 1702: "Point Next The Worst" for 25a in a neck of land between Pocomoke Bay and Annemessex River

These two patents encompass a total of 95a so, Cullen was not in the league of the very large land-owning first settlers but he did have some clout. These two tracts lie adjacent to one another just to the SE of modern-day Crisfield, MD and near the tracts owned by John Roach, his father-in-law. The Cullen tracts lie in the area east of Lawsonia Road and south of Johnson Creek Road down on the waterfront. "Point Next The Worst" was aptly named as it is majority swamp and marshland probably used a pasture for livestock. John Cullen and his wife Atrabella (Roach) Cullen lived on the "Hap Hazard" tract adjacent to it on the west side. On Oct 26 1708, John Cullen and wife Arabella sold "Hap Hazard" to John Sterling for 2,000 pounds of tobacco (SoLR-CD:188).

John married Arabella Roach, daughter of John Roach and Sarah Williams, about 1696 in Somerst Co. (Arabella Roach was born on 25 Jul 1679 in Somerset Co., MD and died before 11 Feb 1746 in Somerset Co., MD.)

John next married Mary Johnson? on 12 Oct 1694 in Somerset Co., MD. (Mary Johnson? died on 23 Jan 1695 in Somerset Co., MD.)
