He sold 575 acres in Charles County in 1764, plus a half interest in each of 2 lots in Port Tobacco in 1762. Between 1774 and ca. 1788 Jenifer purchased 3,609 acres in Anne Arundel County (at least 100 acres of this was leased out). His dwelling plantation of ca. 800 acres, situated close to Annapolis, was part of this purchase. Purchased 8 lots in Annapolis in 1772 and 1773, and one lot with houses on it in Annapolis in 1784. Sold one Annapolis lot in 1774, six in 1783, and the lot with houses in 1788. In 1784 Jenifer purchased part of the confiscated property of loyalist Daniel Dulany consisting of one-fourth of one-tenth of the Baltimore Company, which owned the Baltimore Iron Works. The resulting acreage in Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties added a minimum of 3,697 acres to his already large holdings. In 1787 he held an unpatented certificate of survey for 513 acres in Charles County, land that had originally belonged to his grandfather.

He also owned two lots in Port Tobacco, plus a half interst in two others, one lot in Annapolis, an unspecified number of ground rents in Baltimore Town, and an unpatented certificate of survey for 513 acres in Charles County..
