Second Generation

2. Marmaduke 1 DANDO was born before 1595. He died on 29 October 1668 in Southampton, Bermuda. He was buried on 30 October 1668 in Southampton. He married Joan UNKNOWN.



Southampton church records of the Dando family over the years suggest something of the intimate relationships among Southampton's white families. All of the Dando daughters married young men who resided in Southampton Tribe: Hanna, the eldest daughter, married John Ingham in 1632. Six years later, in 1638, Sarah married Daniel Knowles, and in 1640 16-year-old Elizabeth married John Richardson, also of Southampton. A 1653 record shows that Anne Dando, who was most likely another daughter, married Henry Morgan of Southampton. Martha, the remaining daughter, died unmarried at age 32 in 1661.. Marmaduke Dando Jr., the only son, married in 1655 and had three children—Elizabeth, Frances, and Marmadukc, born between 1656 and 1661. Since Dando Jr. is not listed separately in the survey of 1663, it is likely that he and his family were living on the same land as his father. Land was scarce in Bermuda, and unless he wished to leave the islands, there was no place for him to go. The shortage of land is probably the reason that Thom. Wells's adult son, John, lived on the church property next to his father's residence. The nand., the Wellses, and the Knowleses were a close-knit group, but they were not unusual in their intermarriages. The surviving records indicate that not only the residents of Southampton, but those of other vibes as well, tended to intermarry, and that sons-in-law and daughters-in-law as well . sons and daughters were often provided for in wills. Wills in Southampton, as in other tribes, testify to the close relationships between slaveholding families and their slaves. Slaves were usually bequeathed by name to specific family members. While bequeathing a slave to a specific family member was not unusual—slavehdders in Virginia and other colonies on the mainland often followed the same practice'•—Bermuda slavery was unique in the naming of slaves. Scholars wrestle with the origins (African or other) of slave names and with deciding who (the slaveholder or the slave parent) usually chose a slave child's name. No matter who made the choice, slayes in other slave societies almost never bore the same given names as members of their masters' families. In South Carolina, for example, female slayes infrequently shared the given names of their female mistress., but male slayes and the males in the master's family did not.".
