JAMES SMOOT

The first mention in public records of James Smoot, son of Thomas and Jane (Batten) Smoot, was in November 1681, when he received 230 pounds of tobacco for the performance of some public act, believed to be for service in one of the early Indian wars. Inasmuch as he was of sufficient age to bear arms in 1681, he was apparently born prior to 1665. On April 15, 1687, he patented 160 acres of "Smoot's Chance", lying in Charles County. On February 21, 1689, at Port Tobacco he contracted a debt of 800 pounds of tobacco with Edward Ford; in 1693 he was named as an heir in the will of James Lambert. He, however, died or left the county shortly afterwards, for about 1694 Edward Ford appointed William Stone his attorney to collect the debt of James Smoot, at which time the latter is referred to as late of Charles County. No further record of him exists or neither a marriage nor children have been proved. His land "Smoot's Chance" was later held by John Wilder and John Baptist Boarman.

Henry Jowles his material evidence? not being here, humbly prayeth summons may issue for him to appear here next Court granted by the Court and the consideration of the petition is refered till next Court."
"To the Honorable the Justices of the ProvinCial Court, the humble petition of John Carberry showeth that John Barron now servant to ye petitioner came into this province an indented servant and was sold unto Henry Jowles and from the said Jowles ran away to Carolina. from whence, to the vast charge and trouble of the said Jowles. he was brought [back] and for his runaway time by Calvert County Court was adjudged to serve till Apr. 21, 1694. for which time the said Barron was sold by the said Jowles to Cuthbert Scott, late of St. Mary's County, after whose decease, the said Barron refused to serve the executrix of the said Scott and in order to obtain his freedom, presented his petition to St. Mary's County Court where, after a due hearing, he was adjudged to serve till the aforesaid Apr. 21, 1694 as by the record hereunto annexed may appear, notwithstanding in contempt of the judgments of Calvert and St. Mary's County Courts still continues at all Courts since and now at this
Court he gives your petitioner perpetual trouble and vexation to the unknown prejudice of your aggrieved petitioner as well by the great loss of time and service of the said John Barron at the vast cost and charge your petitioner is daily put to, to defend himself against the most unreasonable and frivolous of the said Barron .... [Y]our petitioner humbly prays the order of this Honorable Court that the said Barron by service or otherwise be adjudged to satisfy your
petitioner for the lost time of his service and charges [that] your petitioner has been at by the illegal and unreasonable proceedings of the said Barron."

"At a Court held at New Town [St. Mary's Co.] Nov. 15, 1691."
"Amongst the records of the St. Mary's County Court was this : Came Elizabeth Scott, widow, and made appear to the Court here that John Barham [sic], her servant, hath 2 years to serve the 21st day of April next. Therefore it is ordered by the Court here that he serve the time aforesaid. Recorded in Liber 9, folio 87. True copy."
"Which said petiton and order of St. Mary's County Court being read, heard, and fully understood and examined by the Court here. It is ordered that in case the said John Barron at the next Provincial Court does not his petition
and obtain a Judgment of this court for his freedom that then the said John Barron to be adjudged by this Court to such satisfaction to his said master John Carberry as well for his loss of time as other charges and expenses he? has been? at, intending to answer his complaint, to be made either by servitude or otherwise as this court then shall consider .,

(1) The new 1758 "Higdon's Chance" record you found and I posted under John Higdon, Jr. also goes under the John Barron who d. 1701 in St. Mary's Co. I just posted Barron's 1706 patent of "Dogwood Fortune" there. This corrects a mistake in my Barron book. Because one John Barron d. 1701 in St. Mary's Co. and another John Barron d. 1719 in Charles Co., I assumed (wrongly it turns out) that the 1706 patent belonged to the John who d. 1719. Your new 1758 "Higdon's Chance" record shows that it was patented to the John Higdon who died intestate with no heirs. That is John Higdon who d. 1701. The John Higdon who d. 1719 left a will and names 2 sons in it. I was further thrown off because the land was in Charles Co. It not infrequently happens (because the patent process took so long) that a patent is not finally issued until after the man is dead.
