Early Landowners of Maryland, Volume 6: Kent County, 1640-1710


Abstracts of the earliest land records (the patents), grouping the information by owners. The level of detail included clearly separates this work from rent roll abstracts and land records. Patentees and others named in the patent document are identified and the relationship or involvement is defined. This includes relatives, former tract owners, persons transported and or completing service, surveyors, public officials, and occasionally employers. They identify neighbors and their tracts and, using data gleaned from other records such as Probate, Judicial Proceedings, church and marriage records, they have identified and included many grants not included in the Rent Rolls. This work identifies virtually all of Kent County patentees, along with others who owned the land or warrant or acted as owner.
