John Bizzick/Bissick

There are a few references to a John Bizzick or Bissick in the Maryland Archives which probably refer to the same person.   





1658 John Bizzick Transported To Maryland; from Land Office Q (Patents), p19
1669-1673 John Bissick Court Records & Land Records "St Johns"; Land Office (Patents) 12, p265, 367, 542, 543

According to indexes and records in the Maryland Archives, it appears that John Bissick came to Maryland in 1658 and obtained land in 1668 and 1670, but this is not confirmed.  The reference above to "St Johns" is the 100 acres of land he owned and sold to John Davis in 1673 [see below].  No other records for John Bizzick/Bissick were found on the Maryland Archives web site.

Here's what I found on John Bissick. It looks to me like he came in 1658 and made land purchases or got patents in 1668 & 1670 but I can't confirm that. The reference to ' St John ' is the land he owned and sold in the below document. Perhaps it was the name of his plantation but 100 acres isn't a very big plantation.<G> I can't locate anything on the earlier records. The name Bizzick must be the same guy - s and z in old handwriting could be the same or at least sound the same. Nothing comes up for Bissick or Bizzick other than what is below when I do a search of the MD Archives. Maybe he went back to England or died? I downloaded this off their site - so the spelling is from them not me. --Mary Bittick Gallano
