Introduction to the Family File:

    The beginning of my quest for the Massicot family roots came with the death of one of my family members.  Dian Massicot Schmidt was a genealogist, and a had the family lore stored right in her head.  Some of these stories are facinating, others down right odd.  But it was these stories that, on her death went missing. I searched for a long while before our dear cousins found me.  It was discovered that one of our cousins was also a genealogist, and had compiled a family descendant chart of William's Descendants.  With this information in hand, we have made several great strides from dates and names to family information that has been lost.  These long distant family relations have been helping me shed NEW light on the family.  It is my hope that we can make more connections to other long missing family members, and add to this continually growing Massicot Community.

Family Research Notes:
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:

Hello Dear Family Members:  Here are some photographs of the folks you haven't seen!
