You're the best! It is my John Perkins! With your hard work, I hope to be able to find it on the MD Archive web site. I found the index, but have no idea how to access the specific record. I'll try again, then call archives if unable to locate. Thank you so much for your work, Steve
: The only thing that I found about John
: Perkin(s)is in Land Record Book I, folio
: 721: a lease for 100 acres of His
: Lordship's Kindness (which you probably know
: about since you have already been in
: communication with Bianca Floyd at HLK).
: Henry Darnall leases to John Perkin, planter
: of PGC "for 40 shillings and the rents
: and covenants hereafter a tract of land in
: PGC, part of His Lordship's Kindness
: containing 100 acres, for lifetime of John
: Perkin, his wife Dorothy Perkin, and his son
: Thomas Perkin."
: Is this your John Perkins? I hope this
