PEDDICORD DEEDS & LAND RECORDS IN MARYLAND

Anne Arundel Co. Land Records:

Wm Petticoat, of Seavorine River, Anne Arundel Co., planter conveyed to Thomas Freeborne of Seavorine River, Anne Arundel Co., cooper for valuable consideration the tract orignial grant 20 Oct 1666 to Wm Petticoat for a parcel called Petticoat Rest bound by the land of Daniel Edge and by a swamp containing 100 acres, This indenture includes the total grant, dated 2 June 1684, witnesses: Abra. Child, Andrew Norwood, James Ellis. originally recorded 3 March 1696 Liber B folio 313. (Note: in the 1704 state house fire all AA Deeds were lost, a special court was held to re-record deeds, many, but certainly not all lod deeds were re-recorded). Further information on the tract Peddicoat's Rest, is found in a deed from Andrew Norwood to Thomas Freeborne for a tract called Norwood's Angles on a branch of Todd's Creek which was bounded by Peddicoat's Rest, by the land of Thomas Todd and John Baldwyn. This tract was in the Middle Neck Hundred of Anne Arundel Co. Todd's Creek is todays Spa Creek, thus it seems Petticoat's Rest is probably located on the western side of Eastport across the creek from downtown Annapolis. Needless to say very choice real estate today.

Samuel Dorsey, Anne Arundel County, Gentleman conveyed to John Pettycoart of Baltimore County on 6 October 1704 for 30, 70 acres of land, the western most part of the tract called Wyetts Ridge, near Round Bay along Broad Creek, adjoining the land of Amos Peirpont, the said tract originally containing 450 acres. Filed 2 April 1706. Witnesses: Robt Hooper, John Dorsey Junr., Joshua Dorsey.

Samll Dorsey, Anne Arundel County, planter and John Pettycoat, Anne Arundel County, planter, and Sarah his wife conveyed on 22 Jan 1707 to Amos Garrett, Anne Arundel County, merchant for 80 the tract Wyatt's Ridge originally patented to Nicholas Wyatt between the branches of South River and the main branch of Broad Creek, by a marsh near the head of Round Bay, laid out for 450 acres by survey dated 16 Dec. 1664. The deed cites the chain of title to the tract as one-half northwest side of the creek was conveyed by Nicholas Wyatt to John Annis and Francis Smith. The remaining 225 acres became right of Sarah Wyatt who intermarried with Edward Dorsey, after Sarah Died, the land descended to Edward Dorsey Jr., the ledest son of Sarah who died about six years later. The land then descended to Samuell Dorsey, next brother and grandson of Nicholas Wyatt. Some time ago Samuell Dorsey conveyed to John Pettycoat 70 acres. This indenture is for 155 acres and the 70 acres, being 225 acres, the moyety of tract called Wyatt's Ridge. Except that a 10 foot squre near pare treet hill being a late burying place is excepted for the use of John Pettycourt. Signed: Samll Dorsey, John (JP) Pettycourt, Sarah (SP) Pettycourt.
