Introduction to the Family File:
Return to Index:
|We have been told that William Massicot
was a Privateer. All indications point to the War of 1812.
Some avaliable resources for the Baltimore War of 1812 that may prove of
some assitance are at the Maryland State Archives. See the following
for more details:
MARYLAND STATE PAPERS (Revolutionary Papers) 1775-1825
S997 *These papers include War of 1812 Documents
Baltimore Privateers, 1812-1815, MHM 34:165., Location: REF E-1-
Marine, William M. The British Invasion of Maryland, 1812-1815. Repr.: Hatboro [Pa.]: 1965., Location: REF A-3-4 *A dear Gal on the Baltimore Md, Rootsweb Listserve explained that in part the reason for the British to attack Baltimore City, came from the fact that they believed it was a 'Den of Privateers'

|It is also believed that Capt. William
MASSICOT was a member of St. Patricks Church-or Parish. Searches
revealed that the church was founded in 1792, and I am 'told' that a layman
would not have founded such a church. It may be that he founded what
is called the Seaman's Church. Further research is needed before
we can determine which church William Founded. However, St. Patricks
Parish Registers can be found at the Maryland State Archives: See
the following for more information:
Collection Number MSA SC 2527
