      Prince George's County, Maryland Land Records 1752-1757; Liber NN {Abstract by Mike Marshall}; Page 258. At the request of Justices of Prince George's County the following view of Elizabeth Skinner's land was recorded June 25, 1754
      we Alexander Magruder and Thomas Morton being persons neither of kin, indebted or otherwise interested in Elizabeth Skinner, orphan of Nathaniel Skinner nor in Mr. Thomas Hollyday her guardian and nominated by Thomas Hodgkin, gentleman, one of the justices of the court here for the purpose do hereby certify that we have entered into the lands and plantation to the aforesaid orphan belonging and viewed the dwelling house, out houses, lands, orchards and fences that are upon the said plantation and after taking our corporal oaths, that according to the best of our skill and judgment we would make a just estimate the annual value of the said land and plantation and what dwelling houses, outhouses and orchards are upon the same what repair they are in and that part of the said land the said guardian may be further permitted to clear upon the said plantation as well to raise the yearly rent's sold valued as also towards the guardianship charge in keeping the dwelling houses out houses orchards and fences in repair as so by him to be left. We make report of and concerning the premises as follows, Vizt; we esteem the annual value of the said lands and plantation to be 2000 pounds of tobacco (the guardian paying thereout the just rents of the same land), the dwelling house is not completely finished yet we conceive it will be soon in want of repair, the kitchen is in good repair, the tobacco houses and other outhouses are middling good repair. There is on the plantation an apple orchard containing about 300 apple trees fenced in by a pretty good fence, there is also another orchard containing about 30 of very good fence. The cornfield and pasture which are both large are fenced in by a very good fence. And as to the part of the land the guardian may be permitted to clear upon the said plantation for the uses aforesaid we conceive it necessary that he clear 5000 plants yearly (that is) such a piece of ground as shall be sufficient for the planting of 5000 tobacco plants but if it shall be found that there is not sufficient board timber on the land so to be cleared to make the necessary repairs to the houses on the plantation we think it then but just that the guardian have liberty of taking much as will do of any other part of the land. Given under our hands and seals this June 19, 1754, Alexander Magruder (near Mill Town), Thomas Morton
