Inventories

(Compiled by Donnie Nazelrod)

WASHINGTON COUNTY, MARYLAND – INVENTORIES – Vol. A (1778-1785)
Microfilmed in 1948 by LDS/FHL @ Hagerstown Courthouse – now at MD Hall of Records, Annapolis
Family History Library digitized microfilm – Register of Will Records, Washington Co., MD  (Available thru Family Search ) 146 images, inventories begin on image 13
NOTE – these inventories are recorded in pounds-shillings-pence .  For those who might not know there were 20 shillings in a pound, and 12 pence in a shilling (or 240 pence per pound)
The Old German Script used in the 1700’s by many of the citizens of Washington County, who were either born in Germany or of German descent, was much different from the Roman Script used by the English speaking record keepers of colonial America.   When presented with a document on which these German-speaking persons had signed their name in the Gothic Script, the clerks were stymied when it came time to copy it – hence, many names in these inventories are simply recorded as “Dutch name.”  I have seen deeds in the Washington County Clerk’s office, where the recorder has tried to duplicate the handwriting – and it is very difficult to tell what the name is supposed to be.  Luckily, it has been written in common script in the body of the record!
