Montgomery County, Maryland Deed Books Libers V, W, X and Y Abstracts 1819-1827


This volume presents abstracts taken from Montgomery County, Maryland, Deed Books: Liber V, Liber W, Liber X, and Liber Y, covering the years 1819 to January 1827. In these abstracts you may find interesting aspects of your ancestors' lives. Entries generally contain the full name of the person recording the item and the date, the full name(s) of the seller(s) and the purchaser(s) involved in the sale, the sold amount, and a description of the item sold. Descriptions for land typically include location and number of acres. Descriptions for property typically include a list of items sold. Descriptions for slaves typically include the name and age of the slave. Entries offer varying amounts of additional information as available. The deed books contain many non-land items, including information about slave sales and manumissions, as well as mortgages of both real and personal (chattel) property. Occasionally, other documents are also recorded, such as bills of sale, which often contain the names of family members. This volume is the first in which many of the mortgages were to banks, instead of personal mortgages from the sellers. An index to full-names, an index to alien and naturalization reports, an index to special reports and bonds, an index to institutions and places, an index to roads, and an index to land tract names add to the value of this work.
