                     MANOR COURT PROCEEDINGS
                       ST. CLEMENT'S MANOR
                        ST. MARY'S COUNTY

        The proceedings of the court leet and court baron of St. Clement's Manor in Liber B
        St. Mary's County are extant in the form of two fragments of the original record.
        Both portions bear the same watermark and perhaps are remnants of a single record
        book. The last page is blank and it has the appearance of an outside page of a
        coverless booklet. The eight folios carry 14 pages of records, representing five
        court sessions. The earliest of these was in 1659 and the latest in 1672. On the
        fifth folio are plantation memoranda written in 1685 on a page that the court
        clerks had left blank. Two entries state amounts owed to negro help and one
        relates to horse breeding.
