An Act to Confirm a Tract of Land therein Menconed to the Rector
or Minister of Saint John's Parish in Baltemore County and his
Successors forever.

Whereas Jeremiah Eaton late of Baltemore County Deceased, was
Seized in his Demesne as of fee, of and in a Tract of Land lyeing in
Saint Johns Parish in Baltemore County called Stoakly Mannor
alias Stoak Flemmon, Containeing five hundred and fifty Acres more
or less, which Tract of Land was by the said Jeremiah by his last
Will and Testament in Writeing beareing date the tenth day of
January in the Year of our Lord God One Thousand Six hundred
Seventy and five Given & Devised to the first Protestant minister that
should Preside in Baltemore County & his Successors for Ever.
And Whereas the said Will is not so clearly exprest, but that the title
to the said Land may be Precarious, or at least liable to Disputes and
Misinterpretation; altho' its Evident to the present Generall Assem-
bly, that the true Intent of the testator was that such Protestant
Minister, and his Successors for Ever Should Enjoy the said Land
and Whereas the said Land is scituate in St John's Parish and that
it is not particularly exprest by the Will, What Minister shall Enjoy
the same It is thought Reasonable, & most Agreeable to the Intent
of the Devisee, that the Minister for the time being, of the Parish
wherein the land Lyes, should have the Benefit thereof And for as
much as it hath been Suggested that the Aforesaid Land Called
Stoakley Manner alias Stock flemmon, is not One, & the same, but
two Severall Tracts of Land upon which pretence some psons have
threatned to Escheat the same under the name of Stoak fleman
Whereas it appears by good Evidences that the afd two severall
Denominations were Intended to denote One & the same Tract of
Land Wherefore it is prayed it may me Enacted, and to the End, that
the Testators pious Intention may have the Designed Effect & all
Doubts and Defficulties be Removed.
Be it Enacted by the Right Honble the Lord Proprietary by and
with the advice & Consent of his Lordships Governeur, & the upper
and Lower houses of this present Generall Assembly and by the
Authority of the same that the said Land Called Stock Flemon
alias Stoakly Manner be and is hereby adjudged, And taken to be
One & the same Tract of Land And shall be to the use of the present
Minister of Saint Johns Parish, in Baltemore County, & the Suc-
ceeding Ministers, or Rectors of the said Parish being of the Church

of England as by Law Establieht, for Ever in as full and Ample

maner, as the said Jeremiah held the same And that the said Parish
do and shall Discharge and pay all Arrearages of Rents Due on the

said Land ont of the ten pounds of Tobacco p pole to be Levied in

the same Parish.
