RIDDELLS OF CECIL COUNTY, MARYLAND.

[Scotch-Irish Branch.]

[The American ancestor of this branch of the Riddell family is said to
have married a servant-girl in his father's family, in the north of Ireland,
and being a descendant of an aristocratic stock, he was disowned by his
kinspeople, and emigrated to this country. I have not found full statis-
tics relative to the early members who were settled in Maryland ; the
family seem to have left that State, and those now living hold their an-
cestral history in tradition. It is quite probable that this is a branch of
the family in Glasslough, Ireland, as the traditions in both families nearly
agree.]

Levi Riddell 1 (1), whose parents' names have not reached me, was
born somewhere in the north of Ireland, and emigrated to America in
consequence of having married a servant-girl in his father's family. Some
think this man's name was Humphrey; both names are common in the
family. He settled in Cecil County, Md., and evidently reared a large
family, some of whom were named as follows : —
