LUX, DARBY (ca. 1698 -1750). BORN: ca. 1698.
IMMIGRATED: probably, if so by the early 1720s.
RESIDED: called "of Great Britain," 1722, and "of
Anne Arundel County" by 1724-1742 (although
he is termed "of London" in 1732 and 1734 by
his correspondents in England); moved to Bal-
timore Town in 1743 and lived there until his
death. FAMILY BACKGROUND. There are several
men with the name Lux in Maryland records dur-
ing the early 1700s. At least two others in addition
to Darby Lux were ship captains in the tobacco
trade between Anne Arundel County and Great
Britain. Capt. William Lux, commander of the
ship Concord, transported tobacco from Anne
Arundel almost every year between 1713 and 1729.
A Capt. John Lux, of the ship Owner's Good
Will, appeared in Anne Arundel only in 1721, but
may have been the John Lux, mariner, of Prince
George's County who died in 1727/28 and whose
estate Darby Lux administered. Another John
Lux (alias Jan Luyex) died in Kent County in
1732, leaving a will that mentioned property
(probably money) due him in Brussels. While no
obvious family connection between any of these
men has been found, it could probably be as-
sumed. MARRIED on May 16, 1722, Ann Sanders
(ca. 1705-1785), daughter of Robert Sanders (?-
1755) of Anne Arundel County and wife Re-
beckath Groome (?-1752). Ann was the grand-
daughter of James Saunders (?-1707). Her broth-
ers were Robert (1702/3-1775); William (1699-
?); James (1700/1-?); and Moses (ca. 1710-?).
Her sisters were Ann (1700/1-1702); Rebekah
(ca. 1707-?), who married in 1732 Thomas Jen-
nings (?-1759); Agnes (1716/17-?), who married
Thomas Baldwin (?- 1762); and Elizabeth (ca.
1720-?). Her nieces were Anne Jennings (1745-
1794), who married Thomas Johnson, Jr. (1732-
1819); Ann Baldwin, who married Samuel Chase
(1741-1811); and Hester Baldwin (?-1832), who
