Judgment Records of Dorchester, Queen Anne's and Talbot Counties
F. Edward Wright
This work focuses on criminal cases (felonies such as theft, assault and bastardy cases), welfare cases to support the infirm and orphans, and transportation (maintenance of roads, taverns or ordinaries, and ferries). Genealogists will be especially interested in the cases involving orphans and illegitimate children. It covers Dorchester County Judgment Records: 1690–1692, 1728–1729, 1733–1734, 1742–1743, 1743–1745, and Part of March Court 1742 (from Liber PA No. R, folio 151); Queen Anne’s County Judgment Records: 1709–1716; and Talbot County Judgment Records: 1662–1674, 1686–1689, 1692–1696, 1696–1698, 1705–1706, 1706–1708, and 1714–1717. A full-name index adds to the value of this work.
