no. 10, Baltimore, 1895); Beverley Waugh Bond, Jr., State Government in
Maryland, 1777-1781
(THUS, series 23, nos. 3, 4, Baltimore, 1905); and
Philip A. Crowl, Maryland during and after the Revolution: A Political
and Economic Study
(JHUS, series 61, no. 1, Baltimore, 1943).

The institutional history of the province has been neglected since the
turn of the century when Mereness examined it so thoroughly. On the
central governing body we have Carroll Taney Bond, The Court of
Appeals of Maryland, a History
(Baltimore, 1928), and Elie Vallettes
contemporary, The Deputy Commissary's Guide within the Province of
(Annapolis, 1774). Some of the peripheries are taken up in
Cyrus Harreld Karraker, The Seventeenth Century Sheriff, a Comparative
Study of the Sheriff in England and the Chesapeake Colonies, 1607-1689
(Philadelphia, 1930); Lewis Webb Wilhelm, Local Institutions of
(JHUS, series 3, nos. 5, 7, Baltimore, 1885); and Edward
Ingle, Parish Institutions of Maryland (JHUS, series 1, no. 6, Baltimore,

There is no monograph on the provincial revenue establishment and
none on the proprietary establishment as such. However, Dr. Barker's
book contains a fine description of His Lordship's income. For the crown
revenue establishment we have Elizabeth Evelynola Hoon's recent and
excellent The Organization of the English Customs System, 1696-1786
(American Historical Association, N. Y., 1938), and Dora Mae dark's
"The American Board of Customs, 1767-1783," American Historical
XLV (1939-40), 777-806.

Closely interwoven with the history of proprietary revenue is that of
the land system. The earliest work on this subject, John Kilty, The Land-
Holder's Assistant and Land-Office Guide
(Baltimore, 1808), is ill-
organized and hard to read but indispensable for reference. The important
modern studies are Beverley Waugh Bond, Jr., The Quit Rent System in
the American Colonies
("Yale Historical Publications, Miscellany," no.
6, New Haven, 1919); his " The Quit Rent in Maryland," Md. Hist. Mag.,
V (1910), 350-65; Garence Pembroke Gould, The Land System in Mary-
land, 1720-1765
(JHUS, series 31, no. 1, Baltimore, 1913); and Paul
Henry Giddens, " Land Policies and Administration in Colonial Maryland,
1753-1769," Md. Hist. Mag., XXVIII (1933), 142-71.
