      "SHIPLEY'S CHOICE,'' 200 ACRES.
      This tract upon the river side of the Severn is the earliest in the Shipley name. It was surveyed March 30, 1681, for Adam Shipley.
      It was held later by Peter Porter and by James Barnes equally.
      Richard Shipley granted to his younger brothers [sic Sons], Adam, Robert and Peter, "Howard's and Porter's Range" and to his brother Robert lands on Elk Ridge. Adam was to hold the homestead of his mother, Lois Shipley, on "Howard's and Porter's Range." Peter Shipley, by will, left all of his property to his brother Richard, as heir-at-law.
      Richard Shipley and Peter Porter sold 100 acres, in 1716, to Robert Freshwater. In 1720 Richard Shipley and James Barnes sold 100 acres to the same purchaser. Richard Shipley sold also to
      his sisters, Keturah Barnes and Lois Shipley, "Shipley's Choice."
      Richard and Adam Shipley sold "Howard's and Porter"s' Range" to Henry Sewell. This tract was the original survey of Captain Cornelius Howard and the first Peter Porter.
