      Maryland State Archives, Volume 57, Proceedings of the Provincial Court 1666-1670, pp. xvi, xxv:

      Three men served as clerks of the [Maryland] Provincial Court during this period-Daniel Jenifer (c. 1665-1669), John Blomfield (1669-1670), and Thomas Cakewood (Cabewood) (1670-1671). Two of these clerks, Blomfield and Cakewood, were dismissed from office for misdemeanors. Jenifer had already been acting for several months as clerk of the Provincial Court when on February 10, 1665, he was formally appointed clerk of this court and of the Provincial Secretary's Office (Arch. Md. V; 23-24). He ceased to be clerk when three years later he married Mary, the widow of William Smith, one of the principal inn-keepers of St. Mary's City, and took over the management of the inn . . . , but continued to practice as an attorney.”
