Whereas the Inhabitants of the upper part of all-Saints Parish in
Frederick County have by their Petition to the Present General As-
sembly represented that a very considerable part of the Inhabitants
of the said Parish are by reason of the great Extent thereof deprived
of the benefit of publick Worship and hearing Sermons and have
therefore prayed that the said Parish may be Divided by aline drawn
from the River Potowmack to and with the Ridge of the Kittockton
Mountains untill it Intersects the Temporary Line and also that the
Chappel of Ease now standing between Conecochiege and Antietum
may be erected into a Parish Church.

Be it therefore Enacted by the Right Honourable the Lord Pro-
prietary by and with the Advice and consent of his Lordships Gov-
ernor and the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly and the
Authority of the same, that from and after the End of this present
Session of Assembly the aforesaid Parish of All-Saints in Frederick
County aforesaid shall be and is hereby declared to be Divided by
a Line drawn from Potowmack River to and with the Ridges of the
Kittockton Mountains untill it Intersects the Temporary Line, and
that all such part of the said Parish as shall lie and be on the South
and East sides of the said lines, shall remain and continue All-Saints
Parish, and that all such part thereof as shall lie and be on the North
and West sides of the aforesaid line shall be and is hereby declared
to be from the end of this present Session as aforesaid erected into
a new district and Seperate Parish by the Name of All-Souls Parish,
and shall and after the time aforesaid be deemed, reputed, adjudged
and taken for All-Souls Parish, and not as part or parcell of All-
Saints Parish as heretofore the same hath been, and that the Line
aforesaid shall always thenceforth be deemed, reputed and taken
to be the undoubted Boundary between the said two Parishes. And
that all the Inhabitants, of All-Souls Parish aforesaid shall have and
In joy all such Benefits, priviledges, powers and Authority's in every
respect as the Inhabitants of any other Parish within this Province
now have or hereafter may have or enjoy, And Be it further Enacted
