      (3) It appears from Lewis FROST's will that at the time he executed this will, he was married to Elizabeth (FROST); that he had the following daughters: Anne (FROST) SPICE, Elizabeth (FROST) COATES and Alice FROST; that he had a grandson, Frost SPICE; and that he had a friend named John FROST of St. Dunstans, Middlesex, England.

      (4) The compiler has found, in the International Genealogical Index, extracted christening records of Anne FROST, Lewis FROST, Jr. and Temperance FROST, who were christened in Stepney, Middlesex, England between 1691 and 1705, and whose parents were Lewis (or Lowis) and Elizabeth FROST; however, neither Lewis FROST, Jr. nor Temperance FROST is mentioned in Lewis FROST's will. The compiler has found, in the International Genealogical Index, an extracted birth record of Alice FROST, who was a daughter of a Lewis FROST; however, she was born in South Shields, Durham, England. The compiler has not found, in the International Genealogical Index, an extracted birth or christening record of an Elizabeth FROST whose father was Lewis FROST. To the extent that the compiler has found extracted birth or christening records of any of these children whose father was Lewis (or Lowis) FROST, the compiler is not certain that their father is the same person as the Captain Lewis FROST, mariner, of London, England, who acquired land in Cecil County, MD in 1699.
