  • Notes 
    • Christopher [1685] Choate is the eldest of the two sons of the Christopher [1642]. His father immigrated from England to the Province of Maryland in 1676 as an indentured servant. He was born about 1685 probably on his parent's 11 acre farm "Choate's His Chance" on the south side of the Magothy River. His father died in 1692 when Christopher [1685] was about 7 years old. He inherited one-third of his father's "appraisal of goods" and the rights to all land (to the exclusion of his mother and brother). Where and with whom Christopher [1685] lived after his father's death is unknown. It appears that the family moved about 20 miles northward since he and his brother appear together in the 1706 tax list for the Upper Part of North Side of Patapsco Hundred.

      Christopher [1685] spent most of his adult life in and along the upper Jones Falls and Gwynns Falls valleys. He married Flora (surname possibly Hawkins) and the baptisms of their five children (Augustine [1716], Christopher [1720], Richard [1722], Mary [1724] and Sabret [1730]) are recorded in St. Paul's Parish. He acquires 100 acres near "the head fountain of Jones Falls" in 1722 called "Choate's Fancy". Christopher [1685] sells "Choate's Fancy" in 1742 and acquires 50 acres called "Hall's Approach" near the Patapsco Great Falls. He and Flora sell "Hall's Approach" in 1745 after which date they are not found in any Maryland records. Their oldest son died in 1740 and the three living sons appear on the 1749 Lunenburg County VA tax list. One is referred to as Christopher junior implying that a senior was living in the area. Christopher [1685] and Flora appear to have followed their sons to Virginia frontier where land was fertile and very inexpensive. There is no record of his passing.
