This genealogy data set identifies many Slade families who descend from William Slade, who immigrated to Anne Arrundel County, Maryland from England about 1750.  By the third generation, many had relocated to Baltimore and Harford Counties, Maryland. Some descendants of these early Slade families still remain in Maryland, even today, however others have migrated into Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and other places.

We have attempted to identify as many descendants as possible and included them in this dataset. We have not intentionally included details about any living person, only their names might be shown if they are children of a deceased parent.

Several unrelated family groups are represented in this dataset.  Some are suspected to be related due to close geographic location. Others are known to be related due to DNA test results, even though the actual physical link has not yet been proven.

Most of the information contained herein has been gleaned from public records, historical books, land and tax records, wills, census, family bibles, letters, documents, recolections of old timers and correspondence with other researchers.  This database is an ongoing project. Information will be continually added and updated as it becomes available. Readers are encouraged to contact the us with updates and changes to their family information so that the underlying database is kept current.

When a date is preceded by a 'c' or 'circa', it implies that the date is not exact, but within a few years, such as might be assumed from census age, and similar sources.  If the date is preceded with 'est' or 'say', it means that the date was estimated based on an educated guess, using any clues available.  Be aware that those dates might be off by a decade or more, and are only used in order to establish a reasonable time line of events.

The Slade Surname DNA Project provides an opportunity to verify which branch you belong to and to confirm suppositions of conventional research methods. This study has been instrumental in proving several connections in this dataset.
