In Reply to: BROWN family by J W Brown of 524

BARNES' "Balto. Co. Families, 1659 - 1759," has Abel BROWN who in 1750 owned 470 acres, "Owen's Outland Plains," and 400 acres of "John's Chance." There are five pages on the BROWN family in the book, but no connection is shown for this Abel.

Anne conveyed 400 acres of same to Abel BROWN of AA [TR:3:232]. "Abell's Lot," 300 acres surveyed 15 July 1684 for Abell BROWN on e. side of Bush R.

Samll. BROWN prays that Wm. SMITH, formerly apprentice to Wornell HUNT, be examined concerning the patent of "Harwood," & a conveyance from {Anthony} DEMONDIER to Abell BROWN, father to petitioner.

Petition of Robert BROWNE, AA, planter: On 4 Oct. 1675, petitioner's father purchased "Harwood," on Road River, for 7000 lbs. tobacco, from Anthony DEMONDIDIER. Petitioner procured Patrick SYMPSON, merchant, to pay to HUNT, who kept the records & departed the province secretly to the damage of the petitioner. Affidavit, petition, and bond of performance of Anthony DEMINDIDIER, AA, planter, to Abel BROWN ordered recorded. In Apr. 1715, Robert BROWN mortgaged to John BUDD, Philadelphia, all of "Harwood," with boundary to Harwood Branch by land of Jeremiah HASLEING to the head of East Branch.
