    Notes:

    An ACT concerning the real estate of Elizabeth Watts, late of Saint-Mary’s county.

    WHEREAS it is represented to this general assembly, that a certain Elizabeth Guyther was,
    in her life-time, seized of an estate of fee-simple in and of fifty acres of land, lying Saint-Mary’s
    county, being part of two tracts of land, the one called Brick Kills, the other Park’s
    Addition with Addition, and being so seized, she afterwards married George Aisquith, by whom
    she had two children, and after the death of said George, she intermarried with a certain Richard
    Watts, by whom she had three children, all of which five children are now living, and infants:
    And, whereas the said Elizabeth, and her husband, sold said land to a certain Barton Tabbs, of
    Saint-Mary’s county, and passed their bond, under each of their hands and seals, conditioned for a
    valuable consideration to convey said land in fee-simple, and the said Elizabeth is since dead, not
    having executed a conveyance for the same: And whereas it is represented, that the said land is
    wholly destitute of wood and improvements, and that it would tend greatly to the benefit of the said
    five infants to have the said contract completed;

    II. BE IT ENACTED, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That the chancellor be and he is hereby authorised and empowered, on petition filed, to examine into all the circumstances relating to said land, and the sale thereof made to Barton Tabbs, and if upon examination, and such proof as he
    may require to be taken, it shall appear to him reasonable and beneficial to the infant children of
    the said Elizabeth to have the said sale and contract carried into effect, he is hereby authorised and
    empowered fully and effectually, by decree of his court, upon such terms and considerations as he
    thinks proper, to perfect and carry said agreement into effect.
