I am looking for a Richard Brent (but could have been Brett) who sold some land in Charles County, Maryland, to my ancestor, Adam Crump in 1737. Adam appeared to have lived in Virginia, across the the Potomock from Charles County.
I see a John Brent, s/o Richard Brent, married to Margaret HEATH not too long after that time period. A John Heath was a witness to Adam's will in 1748.
Does anyone know any of the Brents of Maryland for the period? I see there were a number of Brents there in the 18th century.
My goal is to find out where this land was. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Ed Crump in Louisiana
