Junction of  Wicimoca and Potomac Rivers; burned down in early 1900s

Capt. James Neale was born in 1615 Warnford, Hampshire, England.  He immigrated to America in approximately 1636 or 37.  He married Anna Maria Gill, daughter of Benjamin Gill and wife Mary Mainwaring Gill.  The Capt. died March 29, 1684 at Wollaston Manor of Charles, MD.  Anna Maria Gill was born in 1624 in Spain and sailed to America with her family headed by Benjamin Gill in 1642, a few years after James had landed. 

James and Anna had Wolleston Manor built in Charles, Maryland on 2000 acres which he received the patent for in 1642 requested by Lord Baltimore and arranged for and surveyed by his brother Governor Leonard Calvert.  Wolleston Manor is named in honor of his grandfather's home in Northamptonshire, England where his grandfather was a Lord.

America was American Indian land in the 1600s and Capt. Neale found trade with them.  He was a member of the Privy Council, a Magistrate, Deputy Governor, and was Commissioner of the Treasury for the colony.  He was an envoy to Spain for several years and some of their children were born there.

He and Anna Maria Gill and their family resided at 'Wollaston Manor' in Charles County, Maryland. Below is a contract for building The Wollaston Manor.  Anna and James' children were Maryland's first naturalized citizens as British subjects who were born in Spain and live now in America

In England James Neale was a purser for King Charles I who was married to Queen Henrietta Maria of Spain.  James married Ann Gill who was a Lady-in-Waiting to King Charles' wife, Queen Henrietta Maria. After King Charles I was beheaded, his wife Henrietta Maria returned to Spain. 

James and Ann had a daughter names Henrietta Maria and the Queen was her godmother.  James and Ann traveled to America where their daughter married a Lloyd.  Per Cary Zichos, the name Henrietta Maria has been in each generation to date.

During the War of 1812, a portrait of Martha Neale Hall was in the Bolingly home.  The British ransacked the home and "thrust their bayonets through a handsome portrait" of the family's ancestor Martha Neale Hall.  They set the wheat fields afire and destroyed many valued items in the home.
