Lot 12 original Chapline to Good 1768 by sa6662B


									This is a transcript of the original Joseph Chapline [Sr.] deed for Lot 12 in Sharpsburg to
William Good, made on the fifth of March, 1768. It bears the wax seal next to Joseph
Chapline’s signature, where the paper was cut and folded over at one edge. It probably would
have been kept by Mr. Good. From this the Frederick County Clerk made the copy that was
recorded in the Courthouse on 16 March, 1768 (along with 3 other Sharpsburg deeds), and
which is now in the Hall of Records in Annapolis.

[Notes on spelling: Spelling and punctuation are as shown, except for the old f-like s in
“afsigns,” “ufs,”(“use”) and “purpofs.”

[“Twelve pounds penf Curry” probably means “Pennsylvania Currency.” A few other lots were
bought with Pennsylvania currency, but there the abbreviation was clearer. Most other lots
were bought with “current money Maryland.”

 [The lot size should have been 103 by 206 feet “narrower least in length,” which probably
meant that it was at least 103 feet wide along its entire length. Here the clerk wrote “les”
instead of “least.”
[Another odd item is the “frt” after “Frederick County” in one place. Short for “Courthouse”?
“Premises,” as noted below this, does not necessarily mean that there was a house there, as I
have seen it used sometimes in describing out lots, where houses were prohibited in the deeds.
The 12-pound price may mean that something had been built, but we can only count on it if the
deed says “house” or “buildings.” This one doesn’t even say “improvements.”]

[Note, Joseph Chapline’s signatures are a bit shaky. He would pass away nine months later.]
