      Apr. 1711 - The St. Mary's Co. and Calvert Co., Md. will of John Bowling (wife Mary), probated June 1711, leaves, among other bequests, to dau. Mary and her heirs 100 acres, "Keet Rest" in Charles Co.; also personalty at 16 years.
      Source: Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. 3, pp. 201 (Calvert Co.) and 208 (St. Mary's Co.)
      Comment: The other children named in the will of John Bowling are sons William, John and Thomas. Sons are to be of age at 20 years which suggests that they are also young.
      John Bowling's wife was Mary Langworth. After John Bowling died, his widow Mary m. Joseph Routhorn. There is no mention of "Keeths/Keets Rest" in Charles Co., Md. records after Apr. 1711 until William's land commission for it in June 1738. Any post-1711 deed of "Keets Rest" would be found in Charles Co. deeds even if its owners lived in different counties, and there is none until William disposes of it in Feb. 1751.
