"The Clinkscales of America" by Wilda Wing
"The story is that Mary was a 'Lady of Quality' and that her family objected
to the marriage because Adam was a 'Tradesman'. Perhaps this contributed
to their desire to come to America.

At any rate, he and his wife emigrated to America about 1735 and settled in
Port Tobacco, Charles County, Maryland. At that date Port Tobacco was quite
an important settlement, but later a railroad was put through a neighboring
settlement, La Plata. La Plata grew and Port Tobacco diminished in
importance but does exist today.

In the early and Revolutionary War times Port Tobacco was the center of the
social and political life of the community. It was the only town of any
size in the county. It was the center of commerce for the whole area. A
short distance down the Tobacco River was the naval port of entry, where
goods were weighed and marked, where ships unloaded the luxuries and
necessities which were so dear to the colonist hearts. Where hogsheads of
tobacco was loaded for England. One of the products handled in great
quantity was salt, much needed by colonists as well as by the army to
perserve meat.

Adam Clinkscales, after settling in Maryland, became a farmer and certainly
tobacco was a main crop, or money crop as it was called.

It is recorded that Adam Clinkscales took the oath of allegiance to the
United States of America in 1787." Sr. Adam Clinkscales a1700 scotland and Lady Mary Prenton /Preston/ were married in Glasgow, Scotland.
