In the name of God, amen. I, Thomas Reeder of St. Mary's County in the Province of Maryland, being at this time in a low state of health but of sound mind and memory, thanks be to God for it, and calling to mind the uncertainty of this transitory life which I may soon and suddenly depart, in order therefore to prevent trouble and inconveniences that might arise thereby, I do make, constitute, appoint and ordain this my last Will and Testament, revoking and disannulling all other Will or Wills by me heretofore made, bequeathing my Soul unto Almighty God in humble hopes of his infinite mercy through the meritorious death of our blessed Savior Jesus Christ, and touching such worldly estate as it hath pleased Almighty God to bless me with, I give and dispose of in manner and form following:

I give and bequeath unto my eldest son John Reeder all that part of a tract of land called Bashford Berry Gleaning which was given me by my father in his last will and testament, to him and the heirs of his body lawfully begotten forever.

I give and bequeath to my eldest daughter Henrietta Egan thirty pounds currency.

I also give to said granddaughter Sophia a little Negro girl named Jane.

I leave to my son Thomas Attaway Reeder all that tract of land called great St. Thomas, containing three hundred acres more or less for the use of my daughter Draden Reeder or her issue, to be applied to either use as my said son thinks proper during her natural life, and after her decease to the issue of her body lawfully begotten forever, and for want of such issue to my daughter Bruce's children. I also leave to my said son Thomas Attaway Reeder the three Negroes now with my daughter Draden, named Sarah, Peg and Nell, to be applied to the use as aforesaid.

I give and bequeath unto my son Thomas Attaway Reeder all the remainder of my lands which I have not aforesaid disposed of, to him and the heirs of his body lawfully begotten forever, and for want of such issue to be divided amongst all my grandchildren except my son John's. I also give my said son Thomas Attaway Reeder all my mortgages, bills, bonds and all debts due to me together with all my personal estate of what kind so ever except the legacies mentioned above.

Lastly, I leave my son Thomas Attaway Reeder my whole and sole executor of this my last will and testament, revoking and disannulling all other will or wills by me heretofore made. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this 11th day of October, 1773.

Historic Graves of Maryland and the District of Columbia By Helen West Ridgely, National Society of the Colonial Dames of America;

At Trent Hall, a few miles further up the Patuxent, river, are some
very solid and handsome tombs, or rather what is left of them,
for they are in such a state of neglect that their disappearance
altogether is only a matter of time. Two are upright and four
are in a fence corner, badly broken. The tobacco grows up
about these stones, and the tenant who farms the place,
while congratulating himself upon his fine crops, quietly
ignores the claims of the dead. Little cares he for the memory
of Maj. Thomas Truman, his wife Mary, or his brothers,
Nathaniel and James ; and yet this group of stones is among
the oldest yet discovered in Maryland. They are inscribed
as follows :

Here lyeth the body of Thomas Truman Esqr. Who died the 6th day of December Anno. 1685. Aged 60 years. "The Memory of the Just is Blessed." Prov. ye 1Och. & ye 7th verse

Here lyeth the Body of Mary, wife and Relict of Thomas Truman Esq: who died the 6th of July, Anno 1686 Aged 52 years.

Trent Hall" was granted to Maj. Thomas Truman; it
now belongs to Miss Eliza Thomas of Baltimore. It is
situated immediately on the Patuxent river, and is the terminus
of the road leading from Charlotte Hall to Trent Hall wharf.

Mo Hunter Cl Court

1788 - Death of another patriarch - Col. Van Swearingen died, 69 years old. In his will, written several months before his death, he first told his heirs to divide his property between themselves equally (his wife and four children were each to get a fifth), then a day later added a codicil to ensure that his daughters received specific properties. His will specified, among other details, that the land was to be divided up so that water access was retained for each of the parcels, and son Hezekiah was to retain his use of the "water meadow” just west of the estate house (BCWB 1, p489). Van’s direct heirs included 4 adult children, and his widow and second wife Priscilla and her daughter Peggy, who was still a child. A list of his personal property includes 13 slaves, 24 horses, about 30 beef or dairy cattle, 65 sheep, 66 hogs, various household goods and farming implements, and 9 beehives. The complete list is included in the appendix. Later additions to this list include 2 casks of "Cyder”, 7 mill bags, 60 flour casks, 1 wagon, 1 harrow, over 260 bushels of wheat, 39 1/2 bushels of rye, 4 barrels of corn, 1 ton of hay, and 18 barrels of flour in Baltimore (BCWB 2, p39, 146). His estate also paid 320 pounds of tobacco for the recording of the will and appraisement of the estate, paid for the repair of three tobacco hogsheads, and sold 6 hogsheads of tobacco (for over £47), all suggesting that tobacco was still a cash crop on Swearingen land at this time.

Westmoreland County, Virginia, Order Book, 1698-1705, p. 192a. 27 May 1703: John Cralle of the County of Northumberland, Gent., by his bill in chancery exhibited against Richard Hammock, executor of Wm. Hammock, setting forth that hee became security to the Worshippfull Court of Northumberland with Margrett Macey, relict of Henry Macey late of the County of Northumberland, for Margret's due administration of her husband's estate, that some short tyme after Margrett intermarried with Wm. Hamock who removed Macey's estate into Richmond, which by appraisement was found to amount to 9390 pounds of tobacco, and afterwards died leaveing his son Richd. Hamock his executor, who inventoryed Macey's estate with his father's without distribution, that Cralle upon twoo of Macey's daughters comeing to age and applying themselves to him for such part of thier father's estate as of right belonged to them, hee to avoid trouble at law paid the two daughters, Ruth and Mary, their respective fifth parts of macey's estate, which being divided into five equall parts betwixt his four children and their mother amounted to 1878 pounds of tobacco each, well hopeing Wm. Hammock would honestly refund and reimbusrst the same to him againe. But hammock departing this life, no part of the tobacco beinge repaid Cralle, and Macey's estate being removed from county to county, so that Cralle could not come at his debt or the knowledge where Macey's estate was lodged by the strict rules of the common law, therefore prayed her Majestie's writt to cause Richd. Hammock to discover to this Court what hee knew of Macy's estate and whether the same or any part came to the hands of Wm. Hamock and if it appeared there was sufficient to pay the orator's disbursements orany part thereof, prayed a decree of the same. Richd. Hamock neglecting to appeare or put in any answer to the orator's bill, the same was continued til next Court, and now Hammock appeareing but refuseing to make any answer and Cralle produceing severall receipts amounting to 2534 pounds of tobacco, it is decreed that Richard Hamock doe pay to John Cralle 2534 pounds of tobacco out of Wm.
