            " JACK LLEWELLIN,

    " Lett patent issue to Richard Brenton for the two hundred
acres called Wignall's Rest, on Gunpowder River, he having
made good the summe of three thousand pounds of tobacco
(being the consideration for the same) to

                                Your Friend,

                                        C. BALTIMORE."

    " 29th Xbr. 1682.To Mr. John Lewellin."

        LIBER, W. C. No. 4, fol. 294.

    " Randolph Brandt, of Charles County, presents a petition,
stating that he had theretofore prayed and obtained a writ of
mandamus for an inquisition concerning a tract of one
hundred and fifty acres of land, formerly in the possession of
George Rapier, deceased, upon the return of which
inquisition the said land was adjudged and condemned escheated to
his lordship for want of heir of the said George Rapier; and
