An Act for dividing St. Stephen's, alias North Sassafras Parish, in
Caecil County.

Chapter III.

Whereas, it is represented to this present General Assembly, by
the Petition of many of the Parishioners of St. Stephen's, alias
North Sassafras Parish, in Caecil County, that the said Parish is of
great Extent, and so divided by Bohemia River running almost
through the Middle thereof, as renders it highly impracticable to be
served as it ought to be by one Minister, by reason of the frequent
Difficulties in passing the said River; that the Number of Taxables
in the said Parish are annually increasing, consisting at present of
Fourteen Hundred and Four Taxables, the Forty per Poll whereof,
amounting to Fifty-six Thousand one Hundred and Sixty Pounds
of Tobacco, besides Perquisites, and a well improved Glebe consist-
ing of Three Hundred Acres of good Land: Therefore the said
Petitioners humbly prayed, that the said Parish might be divided,
and Part thereof erected into a new Parish, so as not to affect the
Interest of the present Incumbent, the Rev. Mr. Hugh Jones, but
that he continue to serve both the said Parishes as he hath hitherto
done, and receive the Forty per Poll of both Divisions as he hath
used to do, until his Death, or Removal from St. Stephen's Parish
aforesaid.

Preamble.

Be it therefore Enacted by the Right Honourable the Lord Pro-
prietary, by and with the Advice and Consent of his Lordship's
Governor, and the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly, and the
Authority of the same, That from and after the End of this present
Session, All that part of St. Stephen's, alias North Sassafras Parish,
in Caecil County, lying within the Bounds herein expressed and men-
tioned, beginning at a certain Place called Town-Point, situated be-
tween Elk and Bohemia Rivers, and from thence to run up Bohemia
River to Middle-Neck Point, from thence up Augustine Creek, alias
Little Bohemia, to Campbell's Branch, including all Middle Neck,
and the Plantation of Charles Scot, and to the Cross Paths, and

Boundaries
of the Two
Parishes.
