Many tracts in DE, Somerset and Worcester had the same names. Usually there were not two by the same name in the same Hundred, but sometimes when large tracts were subdivided more than one part might retain the name in deeds. Often, however, one part was renamed so as not to muddy the chain-of-title.
Both Ms. Dryden's books regarding 'land records' and Thomas Scharf's published works have major errors. Like every secondary or tertiary source, whatever is stated must be verified through research in the records.
You can research the land records at www.mdlandrec.net. You have only to register; in a few days you will be emailed a password.
