                  COUNTY COURT PROCEEDINGS
                       CHARLES COUNTY
       Liber A, the first book of the Charles County court minutes, begins its session Liber A
     records with the court of June, 1658. The volume has 136 folios (leaves) and
     several folios are missing. Some of the missing leaves carried record matter. The
     pages are now numbered in sequence by some modern hand, no notice being taken
     of gaps due to lost leaves. Apparently there has never been any such numbering of
     the folios as was usual in the older record books.
       Clerk George Thompson began the liber record and wrote the first 8o pages.
     Thomas Lomax succeeded him for a brief period in Fendall's time, and used 36
     pages for his minutes. Then Thomoson was restored to office and the remainder
     of the volume is in his hand. The last court session is that of October, 1662. It
     was Thompson who, at his return to office, numbered each court transaction from
     the front of the book and used these marginal numbers for cross-reference instead
     of making an index.
       On the lattermost pages of the liber are private mercantile accounts of 1648-1651
     that were already entered in the hook when it was diverted to public uses. These
     accounts have no connection with the county records.
