Description

The Prerogative Court was the focal point for probate in colonial Maryland. Compiler Vernon Skinner has produced the twenty-second volume in his series Abstracts of the Testamentary Proceedings of the Prerogative Court of Maryland, based upon this important source for Maryland genealogists. The series is arranged, volume by volume, chronologically by court session. Volume XXII consists of abstracts for the period 1739-41, as found in Liber 31 of the records. In all, the latest book in this remarkable series refers to an additional 7,000 colonial inhabitants of the Province of Maryland. For the most part, the transcriptions state the names of the principals (testators, heirs, guardians, witnesses, administrators, and so forth) as well as details of bequests, names of slaves, appraisers, and more.
