    Indentured Servant 
    • Mary Gakerlin was a Welsh girl said to have come to this county as an indentured servant along with Anne Kidde. In 1657, Sheriff Veitch married Mary Gakerlin and bought the indentures of both his wife and Anne Kidde from Richard Keen of Calvert County. It was not uncommon for a relative or prospective groom to pay the passage for a relative or future bride, though there is no indication that James Veitch ever knew of her prior to her arrival in America. The romantic family leged handed down in the Veitch family is that he freed an unwilling indentured servant, married her and allowed her to become one of Calvert County society's leading ladies.
