Frederick Co, Maryland - Book of Descents

Book of Descents - 1794 - 1837

Frederick/Carroll Counties, Maryland

About 1788, there was an Act of Assembly passed entitled "Act to Direct Descents". This act ensured an equal distribution to the heirs of a person who died without a will.

The widow was given one third of the property including at least part of the home dwelling and included the best part of the property.

If the land could not be divided equally, it would then be offered to each child (or brothers and sisters if no issue) by order of birth. If they chose to take the property, they would then have to pay the others their equal share of the appraised value within a specified time period. If all heirs refused to take the property, it was then sold at auction to the highest bidder, subject to the widow's dower (she had a life estate) and the proceeds divided equally among the heirs. This of course after all debts had been covered.

If the heirs were minors (under 21 for a male and under 18 for a female), a guardian would be appointed to act in the best interests of the minor.

The following are abstracts of these such cases (Chancery Court) and are housed at the Maryland State Archives in Annapolis. They have been arranged alphabetically by the surname (as written in the records).
