ST. MARY'S COUNTY
CIRCUIT COURT
(Land Commission Papers)
1851-1903
C1555

Series Description
Case files of proceedings to partition or sell inherited land, 1813-1871, to perpetuate or restore land boundaries, 1820-1859, to lay out or close roads and landings, 1827-1858, to ratify sales of land by constables, 1834-1861, to hear an ejectment petition, 1843, to hear insolvency petitions, 1847-1880, to appoint commissioners to take testimony in equity and civil suits, 1852-1858, to contest elections, 1854-1881, to extend time for tax collections, 1858-1879, to conduct insanity hearings, 1871-1892, to lay out dower rights in land, 1873-1903, to establish voting privileges, 1877-1887, to hear a request for a writ of mandamus, 1879, to establish or annul leases of oysters beds, 1881-1885, to condemn land for a railroad, 1881, and to ratify tax sales, 1885-1888. Documents in the records can include petitions, court orders, oaths of commissioners, depositions, commission reports, and surveys and plats. The files are arranged chronologically by the court terms when the cases were heard. In addition, some files are cited with case numbers as derived from (Petition Docket), 1811-1903, in series C1670 and C1671. Earlier docket entries are found in (Docket) in series C1584. Many of the commission papers involving land are recorded in (Land Commissions) in series C2217 and C2218, and are so noted on the documents. Those files, estimated to be 50%, will be excluded from the scanning project unless the plats were not recorded. The remaining 203 folders each contain approximately fourteen pages of text and plats. The records will require cleaning and careful handling because they were subjected to heat and humidity in the past. Access available in electronic form derived from the records themselves.
