Carroll County, Maryland


Land Record Abstracts - Liber WW-1
1837-1838


Since Carroll County was formed in 1837, this is the first book of land records recorded in that county. The majority of these listings indicate whether the land previously had been in Frederick or Baltimore County. Many times, family relationships are listed and there is usually a good reference to the previous land holders and surrounding land tract names. An every-name index is included which also contains the names of the land tracts. Even a couple of references to family graveyards were found. This book of abstracts is useful in locating ancestors and land previously owned by them, and possibly even a link to family relationships. Since all abstracts are subject to interpretation by the compiler, it is necessary to obtain a copy of the deed or record itself, for verification of all facts and interpretations as well as obtaining the metes and bounds. This book should prove useful in learning which records are needed for your research.

Note: All entries are deeds and all parties are from Carroll County - unless noted otherwise. The first entry starts on page (folio) 5.
