  • Notes 
    • John was born at "Brookewood", the home of his parents, in Nottingham District, Prince George's County, Maryland.

      In 1730, his father entailed upon him the plantation called "Thorpland," lying on Collington Branch, 3 miles north of Upper Marlborough.


    • In 1737 Dr. Pottinger deeded to his son-in-law, John Bowie, "on account of my love and affection for him," a large plantation in Queen Anne's Parish. In 1747 he increased his real estate by the purchase of a plantation called "The Hermitage," owned by Thomas Harris, situated 12 miles north of the present city of Washington, and lying in Frederick County, now Montgomery County.
