Edward Maddox, Cornelius’ presumptive father, is noted in a Colonial Survey Report (#3964, p. 16) in the Virginia State Archives, for importing “fuetiane” on 14 March 1675. “Fuetiane” is a misspelling of “fustian,” which is a heavy woollen cloth used by the colonists for clothing (sort of like jean cloth). Cornelius can be found in later Maryland records, importing similar cloth. It’s possible that Cornelius was simply continuing his father’s business. Just worth noting along the way to proving their father-son relationship.
