The relationship of Captain John Dent to Judge Thomas Dent has puzzled the family historian as well as professional antiquarians. It has been stated often in print without documentation that he was a younger brother of Thomas, but it can definitely be disregarded, inasmuch as a John Dent was not listed as a son of Peter Dent, of Gisborough, Yorks, in the 1684 Visitation of Cambridgeshire. That he was a kinsman, there is no doubt, and a nephew would be the most logical assumption, but even then he may have been a cousin as used in the modern sense.
After an analysis of all factors with the Christian names of his children as the best criterion for inference, it is most likely that he was a nephew and the son of George Dent, of Gisborough, brother to Judge Thomas Dent, both being sons of Peter Dent, of Gisborough, and Margaret Nicholson his wife. The only alternative for being a nephew to Judge Thomas Dent would be a son to William, of Gisborough, but George was given as a Christian name to one of John's sons, whereas William was not.
John Dent came into Maryland about 1658 with Thomas Dent who claimed land rights in 1663 for his transportation, and in that year John Dent witnessed a conveyance of William Hatton to Thomas Dent. The year previous or 1662 he witnessed the last will and testament of William Hewes who bequeathed his entire estate to William Hatton of William and William Dent of Thomas. In 1695 he employed William Dent of Thomas his attorney to institute legal action against on Lemaister. In those years it is therefore evident that he was in close association with Thomas Dent and was a freeholder of age.

Children of John and Mary (Hatch) Dent
1. Peter Dent, returned to England.
2. Michael Dent, d.s.p.
3. John Dent married Catherine ------------. q.v.
4. George Dent married Elizabeth Short and Mary ------------. q.v.
5. Mary Dent.
6. Lydia Dent married Samuel Turner.
7. Anne Dent married John Cadle [Caudle].
8. Abigail Dent.
9. Christian Dent married Thomas Suite.
No Rebecca listed. Still looking for positive link to her father. Some sources list Thomas, and since he married a Rebecca, this seems logical.....
