Day Property, "William The Conqueror"

From the Maryland Historic Trust States Historic Sites Inventory Form:

111750 Belair Road
Kingsville, Maryland

"This land was surveyed under the name "William the Conqueror" on May 25, 1665, for William Ramsey who was no doubt a speculator rather than a settler at that early date."

"Nicholas Day acquired 150 acres on November 5, 1695, from Thomas Bevin.  Some time in late 1704 or early 1705 Day died, leaving the place to his son Nicholas Day, Jr."

Another Day blog post at In Deeds here.

Sarah Day, the daughter of Nicholas Day, married John Greer and were my Day/Greer ancestors.
