46.11/78.4 Edward Nicholson] Joseph Nicholson was the son of Rebecca
Lloyd, Edward V's sister, and her husband, Joseph Hopper Nicholson (1770–
1817), a Democratic-Republican congressman from Baltimore from 1799 through
1806 and thereafter a prominent Maryland jurist. The younger Nicholson was the
nephew of Edward Lloyd V, not the son-in-law, as Douglass identifies him. Pres-
ton, Young Frederick Douglass, 70, 222n4; Hardy, Colonial Families, 500–511;
DAB, 13: 505–06; BDAC, 1588.
46.11/78.4 Mr. Lownes] Born in Kent County, Maryland, Charles Lowndes
(1798–1885) entered the navy as a midshipman in 1815. He married Sally Scott
Lloyd in the mid-1820s and by 1840 was a prosperous Talbot County farmer with
thirty-five slaves. By the start of the Civil War, he had risen to the rank of captain in
the U.S. Navy. Suspected of Confederate sympathies, he was placed on the retired
list in 1862 and later promoted to commodore and placed on a war prize commis-
sion. 1840 U.S. Census, Maryland, Talbot County, 70; Preston, Young Frederick

46.12/78.6 Andrew] Andrew Skinner Anthony (1797–1833) was the eldest
son of Aaron and Ann Catherine Skinner Anthony and the nephew of Edward
Lloyd V. His father apprenticed him as a young man to James Neall, a cabinet-
maker, in Easton, Maryland. After completing his apprenticeship, Anthony mi-
grated to Indiana, where he married Ann Wingate of Martin County in 1823. He
and his bride returned to Talbot County shortly thereafter. In 1826 Andrew's father
died, and he inherited a third of his estate, including eight slaves. Although he in-
creased his estate and owned twenty slaves, in his final years Andrew suffered from
alcoholism and operated a whiskey shop. John Manross to Douglass, 14 January

children born to Aaron and Ann Catherine Skinner Anthony, was trained as a
blacksmith for five years before inheriting land, money, and slaves after his fa-
ther's death in November 1826. Douglass incorrectly asserts that Richard died be-
fore his father. Harriet L. Anthony, annotated copy of Bondage and Freedom,
