Preface 



The records in this volume are a continuation of those of Baltimore 
Town and Jones' Town previously issued. 

They represent certain official acts of the City Commissioners, and 
are worthy objects of preservation because these acts relate to the 
establishment of boundaries of sundry tracts of land, opening public 
highways, etc., as the development of the new City justified the im- 
provement. 

This publication begins where the former volume terminated. The 
first book brought the records up to the time Baltimore Town ceased 
to exist, covering a period from 1729 to 1797, in which latter year the 
City began life as an incorporated institution. The historical thread 
is now picked up at the incorporation, and runs through the affairs of 
the City of Baltimore from 1797 to 1813. 

The writer believes these records are of sufficient value to justify 
their perpetuation in type. They are the first of the City of Baltimore, 
and no argument is necessary to show the desirability of having them 
handed down to coming generations in typographical form. In fact, 
it is a question of now or never, for some of the old papers are becom- 
ing more dilapidated daily, fading and difficult to decipher. 

While it is a fact that many of the points or landmarks, referred to in 
this work, from which surveys were begun, have long since disappeared, 
not a few of the plats mentioned are yet in the custody of the City Li- 
brarian, and may be of assistance to those in search of information. The 
original documents have been followed literally. If the reader finds 
the same name spelled more than one way the blame must be shifted 
to the person who manipulated the pen a hundred years, or so, ago. 
What was written then is given here; that's all.

ch. II. 

WHEREAS it is found by experience that the 
good order, health, peace and safety, of large 
towns and cities cannot be preserved, nor the 
evils and accidents to which they are subject 
avoided or remedied, without an internal power, 
competent to establish a police and regulation 
fitted to their particular circumstances, wants 
and exigencies; therefore, 

II. Be; it enacted, by the General Asseynbh Baitimore- 
of Maryland, That Baltimore-town, in Baltimore [XYcfty.^lc 
county, shall be and is hereby erected into a city, 
by the name of The City of Baltimore, and the 
inhabitants thereof constituted a body politic and 
corporate, by the name of The Mayor and City 
Council of Baltimore, and as such shall have per- 
petual succession, and by their corporate name 
may sue and be sued, implead and be impleaded, 
grant, receive, and do all other acts, as natural 
persons, and may purchase and hold real, per- 
sonal and mixed property, or dispose of the same 
for the benefit of the said city, and may have and 
use a city seal, which may be broken or altered at 
pleasure ; the city of Baltimore shall be divided 
into eight wards, each ward to contain, as nearly 
as may be, an equal number of inhabitants ; the 
first division shall be made by seven respectable 
citizens, or a majority of them, to be appointed

tion of the said city thereafter, from time to time, 
shall cause a correct division of the said city to 
be made into eight wards, according to the actual 
number of inhabitants, which divisions shall be 
repeated as often as the increase or decrease of 
inhabitants in any ward or wards shall render it 
necessary, in order to a just representation, and

last, having given four days public notice of the time, place & 
intention of their meeting, and having adjourned from time to

ment. 

It appears that from the Deeds and Possessions of the prop- 
erty, that they are at considerable Variance, that the Deed to 
Shaneberger calls for a line from Liberty street, 
parrallel with Fayette street which appears from the Testimony 
of Adam Denmead on oath could not have been intended as 
he had made a purchase from said Shaneberger of part of said 
Lot, and not having as much ground on the back line as he 
had bought from said Shaneberger on the front line he re- 
quested to have more, but Shaneberger told him he could not 
let him have any more, as he the said Shaneberger had but 
twenty four or twenty five feet himself on the said back line : 
And also on the testimony of Cornelius H. Gist, also on oath, 
who wrote the Deed for Shaneberger did insert in the body 
of the Deed the words parrallel zvith Payette Street without 
any instruction from him the said Shaneberger. And from 
further Information, & the situation of the Improvement on 
that part of the Lot, & the improvement adjoining, he the said 
Shaneberger must have built his house agreeably as he con- 
ceives was the boundary line of his lot, & not parrallel with 
Fayette Street, and that he sold to Adam Denmead under those 
impressions And that Adam Denmead bought & sold under 
the same. 

The City Commissioners therefore, wishing to do justice to 
all parties, have established the lines of Anthony Law as fol-

been appointed by Edward Johnson Esqr. Mayor of the City of 
Baltimore, to revise & examine the proceedings of the City 
Commissioners respecting certain Establishments on Sharp, 



\y' 



144 RECORDS OF 

German and Lombard Streets, of which William C. Goldsmith 
had complained, and to alter or confirm the same as shall appear 
to us or a Majority just & proper — Do report, That Henry 
Stouffer one of the Commissioners by whom the establishment 
complained of were made, appeared before us & alledged that 
the said Commissioners were directed & influenced principally 
bv an Establishment on record made the 2d. day of May, 1806 
on the application of Edward Waters presuming they had no 
authority to question the work of former Commissioners. 
They measured from the East side of Sharp Street, as then 
Established sixty six feet, agreeably to the Original plat of the 
Town, and at the spot where the sixty six feet terminated they 
made the line on the West side of Sharp street and thereby 
regulated the same, which work he considered as confirmed by 
a Variety of Measurements on the said Original plat. 

By a recurrence to the Ordinance of the Corporation under 
which the present Commissioners act, it is presumed they have 
authority to investigate fully, the principles which influenced the 
Board to make the Establishment complained of, by William C. 
Goldsmith, They therefore called on John Hillen, one of the 
Commissioners who acted when the Establishment was made 
on the application of Edward Watters, 2d. May 1806, (see 
deposition of John Hillen. filed) It appears from that paper 
that the Commissioners then to ascertain the line of Sharp 
street, on the East side took Stump's corner, on Pratt & Sharp 
Streets for one point, and a spot at or near the corner of Mr. 
Dashield's Church on the South side of German lane as the 
other point, drawing the line of Sharp Street, on the East side, 
from one point to the other — 

To these Data are the following objections . 

Stump's corner is not a point established by any record pre- 
sented to this Board, if it was, that corner is not within the 
lines of Hall's Addition to Baltimore town made in 1754, but is 
part of a younger addition, & cannot consequently regulate an 
Older Survey. — The Spot at or near Mr. Dashiel's Church 
on German lane & Sharp street, is not established by any record 
presented to this board. When the afftrmation of Elias Ellicott, 
& the Deposition of Jehu Bouldin returned with this report are 
considered, it is presumed no such record exists, both points on 
which the Establishment of May 1806 was made, failing, the 



BALTIMORE CITY. 1 45 

present board are of opinion that the Establishment then made 
in 1806 was founded on improper principles, of Course any 
thing built thereon must fall with it. 

The board then had recourse to the original plat of Hall's Ad- 
dition made out by Nicholas R. Gay March 25h. 1754 En- 
deavoring therefrom to locate Sharp street, as it was originally 
done by Joshua Hall the proprietor, & Nicholas R. Gay the 
Surveyor, They took into their consideration the outlines of 
Original Baltimore with which Hall's addition calls to run, The 
Deposition of Cornelius Howard, & a variety of others returned 
with this report, a list of which is added thereto : — Also the 
deeds from Joshua Hall the proprietor to John Moale, Rachel 
Merryman Now Rachel Stewart, John Hall son of Joshua to 
Jacob Cromwell, from all which it clearly appeared to this 
board that Joshua Hall & Nicholas R. Gay located the South 
east intersection of Sharp Street & German lane at or about 
twelve feet One Inch & half an Inch, East from the Northwest 
corner of Mr. Dashiel's Church, As set forth in the Deposition 
of Cornelius Howard, that spot being nearly the Westernmost 
point of lot Number twenty eight of Original Baltimore the 
corner of Sharp street from that point proceeds South agree- 
ably to the plat. 

Having then a point fixed, to wit, twelve feet, one inch & one 
half inch from the Corner of Mr. Dashiel's Church Agreeably 
to Cornelius Howard's Deposition, which is two feet nine inches 
West, from where the South thirty degrees West twenty three 
perch line of Original Baltimore terminates on the south side 
of German lane, the present board divided the distance between 
those two points, and fixed the same as the point from which 
the East side of Sharp Street, should have taken its commence- 
ment: From that point they mesured Sixty six feet continuing 
the line of German lane on the South ; its termination 
they made to be in the line of Sharp street on the Western side 
thereof, the spot measures fifty two feet six inches from the 
Northwest corner of St. Peter's Church, continuing the line of 
German lane on the South, they then run the line of Sharp 
street southerly for the west side thereof to another point on 
Lombard street, which is north eleven degrees & one quarter 
of a degree east sixty nine feet two inches from the North east 
corner of Elias Ellicott's house.

In consequence of the above Establishment an appeal was 
prayed for by William Bosley & Hezekiah Price, & the follow- 
ing Commission issued from Edward Johnson Mayor of the 
City of Baltimore. 

To Joseph Townshend, Adam Fonerden, Alexander Mc- 
Kim, John Diffenderfer, & John Miller Junr. 
Greeting 

The City Commissioners having on the i6h. of April last 
established the lines of both sides of the falls called Jones' 
falls, from Market or Baltimore Street bridge to Bridge street 
bridge, commonly called Griffith's bridge ; And William Bosley 
& Hezekiah Price considering themselves Aggrieved thereby, 
& having on the i8h. day of April last prayed an Appeal from 
the decision of the said City Commissioners — 

This is therefore to authorize you to review and examine 
the proceedings of the said Commissioners, first taking on Oath 
or affirmation that you will impartially examine the said pro- 
ceedings, from which the appeal as aforesaid is prayed ; And 
confirm or alter the same as Shall appear to you or a Majority 
of you to be just & proper; And return your award in writing 
within ten days from this date to the register of the City to be 
by him recorded. 

Given under my hand & the Corporate seal of the City of 
Baltimore this i6h. of May 1810. 

Ed WD. Johnson Mayor 

of the City of Baltimore. 

(Here follows the award of the Commissioners of Appeal.) 

We the Subscribers having been appointed on the i6h. day 
of May 1810 by Edward Johnson Esqr. Mayor of the City of 
Baltimore "To revise & examine the proceedings of the City 
Commissioners in establishing the lines on both sides on Jones's 



l6o RECORDS OF 

Falls from Market or Baltimore Street bridge to Bridge Street 
bridge Commonly called Griffith's Bridge of which William 
Bosley & Hezekiah Price had complained & appealed ; And to 
alter or confirm the same as shall appear to us or a Majority 
of us just & proper" Do Certify that in attending to the busi- 
ness confided to us we have discovered that a plot of Jones' 
Falls was made out & a sixty feet channel marked in lead lines 
thereon from Market otherwise called Baltimore street, bridge 
to Bridge street bridge commonly called Griffith's bridge; 
which plot is on record among the records of the City of Bal- 
timore, & was, by the port wardens adopted & establish as will 
Appear by a Minute of their proceedings on record, bearing 
date the 23d June 1784 — hence we have inferred that the said 
plot & sixty feet channel thereon marked is the directory by 
which we were to be governed in the discharge of the duty 
assigned to us. — In reviewing the lines of Jones' Falls as 
ascertained by the City Commissioners, a report wdiereof was 
returned to the Mayor's office under the date of the i6h. day 
of April last, it appears that the said City Commissioners As- 
sumed a point for the beginning to be ascertained that is not 
located on the said plat. — 

We do therefore annul & reverse the proceedings of the said 
City Commissioners & the lines of Jones' Falls by them de- 
clared to be established. In further proceeding in the discharge 
of the duties assigned us, we have found Mathews's Wharf, on 
the Eastern side of Jones' Falls, located on the said plot, & 
adopted & established by the port wardens as herein before men- 
tioned, & that Wharf still remaining in the same position it 
stood when the said plot was made out & adopted, gives, as we 
conceive, a certain point from whence to derive a beginning 
of the Eastern line of the said falls & of the sixty feet chan- 
nel reserved by the said port wardens— 

We have accordingly reversed the course & run the distances 
called for by the said plot from the Northwest corner of said 
wharf, and thereby ascertained the beginning of the line of 
the Eastern side of said Falls. & thence running agreeably to 
the courses & distances called for by the said plot have ascer- 
tained the whole line of the Eastern side of said Falls from 
Griffith's bridge to Market street bridge aforesaid, and by a 
line stretched therefrom at right angles across the falls have 



BALTIMORE CITY. l6l 

ascertained the lines of the Western side thereof, reserving a 
Channel of sixty feet wide, which lines we have Marked on 
the New bridge Now building on Market street, & caused a 
plot thereof to be made out by Samuel Green a Sworn Sur- 
veyor of Baltimore County (as on the other side of this paper, 
whereunto we have signed our names to which plot we refer, 
as a part of our report & decision, referring also to the af- 
firmations of George Matthews & Samuel Matthews hereunto 
annexed) and we do hereby establish the lines of Jones' Falls, 
reserving a Channel of sixty feet wide, from Market Street 
bridge to Griffith's bridge aforesaid, as the same is laid down 
in the within plot.— 

In testimony whereof we have hereunto set our hands & 
seals at the City of Baltimore this 26h. day of May 1810

I have carefully examined the annexed plat now produced 
to the City Commissioners & find the lots Number five hun- 
dred & forty eight, & five hundred & forty nine & the wharf 
& buildings thereon and on the lands made out of the water 
therefrom^ are laid down in the same manner & at the same 
places they were laid down by me as Surveyor of Baltimore 
County about the year Seventeen hundred & eighty three in a 
Chancery suit Phillip Hall against James Calhoun & Phillip 
Rogers, & afterwards in an Ejectment cause with the same 
parties & as proved to be on those Surveys. 

The usual flow of the tide of the Basin of Baltimore formerly 
from the North side of Camden street round to Light Street 
is also laid down on this plat as it was then laid down by me, 
& proved to be within the memory of several witnesses sworn 
on those surveys. This Deponent further saith, that by meas- 
uring the distance from Charles Street along the South side 
of Pratt Street the distance on the said plat appears to be six 
perches or thereabout And that the distance on Charles Street, 
South from Pratt street appears to measure about five perches, 
that the face of the Ground is so altered since he made the 
above survey by means of filling up, that he is not able at this 
time, to ascertain the location of the Water as proved on that

eight & five hundred & forty nine, He has examined the plat 
now produced to the City Commissioners & verily believes 
the former flow of the water, Howard's wharf, & the build- 
ings are accurately laid down : He at one time occupied the 
Warehouse marked B. having rented it from James Calhoun 
to whom it belonged When this Deponent first knew How- 
ard's Wharf the water usually flowed considerably higher up 
than this warehouse & boats came up to it & received & dis- 
charged property there: He recollects when James Calhoun 
& Phillip Rogers obtained permission from the Port wardens 
to erect a Wharf from the lots number five hundred & forty 
eight, and five hundred & forty nine. About the year seven- 
teen hundred & eighty three they began the wharf from Pratt 
Street at the head of the Dock the distance of two hundred 
feet from Charles Street, when Phillip Hall who then claimed 
deep point procured an injunction from the Court of Chan- 
cery to prevent the Erection of said wharf. After the injunc- 
tion was disolved Calhoun & Rogers laid out lots on the West 
side of the dock fronting on a twenty feet alley at the head 
thereof. This Deponent contracted with James Calhoun for 
one of these lots, & attended to the building of the wharf at 
the head of the dock and filling in the ground above it as the 
tide usually flowed at that time considerably higher up, & 
within the memory of the Deponent, as high up as within about 
one hundred feet of Charles Street. This Deponent has since 
relinquished his claim to said lot to James Calhoun & has now 
no interest therein, and further Saith that he believes the 
water flowed up into Charles Street as far North as to within 
about five perches of the South side of Pratt street.

This Deponent recollects himself when the tide of the Basin 
usually flowed to within one hvmdred feet of the intersection 
of Charles & Pratt streets on the south side of Pratt street & 
to within about one hundred & thirty feet of the intersection 
of those streets on the North side thereof, He well recollects 
on the survey aforesaid in tracing the upper part of Howard's 
Wharf which was at that time covered with dirt & had to be 
dug to find the logs, they traced the North side of the wharf 
into Pratt street a few feet below the house built by Phillip 
Hall marked D. on this plat. He recollects the houses marked 
A. B. C. & D. the one marked A. was on the wharf when he 
first Knew it the Houses marked B & C were built for James 
Calhoun and the one marked D. was built by Phillip Hall who 
then claimed Deep point & was afterwards recovered from him 
by Calhoun & Rogers in the Ejectment cause before men- 
tioned. He further says the house marked A. on the plat was 
occupied as a warehouse by John Mickle as Tenant to Mrs. 
Rogers as he was informed by said Mickle or Mrs. Rogers.

attended to & Superintended laying the foundation of each 
building. The last mentioned was erected in part on the same 
ground where a red warehouse of James Calhoun's formerly 
stood which warehouse this Deponent took down to give room 
for the other. 

The ground where the first mentioned warehouse is erected 
had been principally made out of the water only the year 
before by filling up the dock & the wharf on Light Street was 
built by James Calhoun & the ground filled up for him to its

The proprietors of lots on Light street extended being about 
paving front of said lots The City Commissioners were called 
on to level & fix the line for the Kirb stone — It appearing to 
the City Commissioners that the said street had not been laid 
down agreeably to the line of the Portwardens they thought it 
necessary to fix & establish the East & West lines of Light 
street extended, for which purpose Notice was given in the 
public papers to that effect. 

The City Commissioners did meet on the 19th instant, but 
finding there had been establishments made by their Prede- 
cessors, under the Application of John E. Howard Under date 
of the 2oh, of July 1807 which appears by an extract from the 
records of the city, that the City Commissioners had made two 
establishments on the 9th day of October 1807 on the West 
side of said Streets — One on the South west corner of Barre 
& Forest street, the other being the division line on Forest street 
so called by them between John E. Howard & George Prest-

man. It also appears from said Extract that the City Commis- 
sioners made the return of said establishments on the i8h. day 
of November 1808 from these Circumstances the board are of 
Opinion that it was not necessary at present to make any fur- 
ther EstabHshments on the said Streets, As there were also 
Establishments made previous thereto, and Corresponding with 
those of the gh. day of October 1807 — 

Therefore resolved to decline the Subject for the present 
and have ordered the pavers to set the Kirb stones conformable 
to the aforesaid establishments. Yet it appears very evidently 
that said street is considerably contracted on one or the other 
side thereof, so much so, that there is but fifty four feet in 
some places in place of sixty feet as Contemplated —

Deposition in Above Establishment 

Whereas the City Commissioners did on the 7th day of Jan- 
uary in the year eighteen hundred & five establish the lines of 
my lot of ground fronting on King Tammany Street which 
said lines so established is found to disagree with the Courses 
of the Original title papers, in consequence of which a strict 
adherence thereto would create a number of difficulties in the 
lots between my lot & McClellan's Street, I do therefore agree 
that the said Establishment be void, and that the lines of my 
lot shall run from King Tammany Street Southwestwardly par- 
ralel with Forest alley still preserving to my lot the width of 
thirty feet in front & back, & that the front line on King Tam- 
many Street remain as heretofore established. —

In pursuance of the application of the Commissioners, for 
opening & extending Pratt street by their secretary William 
B. Barney to locate the East & West lines of Calvert street 
from Water street to Pratt Street — The City Commissioners 
did meet on the I3h. Instant, having given four days public 
notice of the time, place & intention of their meeting & having 
examined the evidence & locations relative to the subject matter 
prayed for, and having taken sundry measurements. Did ad- 
journ to the following day, & on examining the records of the 
City Did find that the Westwardmost line of Calvert Street 
from Baltimore Street southerly had been established, by the 
City Commissioners, & recorded on the i6h. day of July 
1798, as far as the Basin, which said line, so established we 
caused to be run & found that it intersected the Northward- 
most line of Pratt street Eastwardly, three feet ten inches from 
the front wall of William Smith's Warehouse, That on fur- 
ther investigation of the Easternmost line of Calvert Street 
we found on the records of the City by the Town Commis- 
sioners an Establishment in the following words to wit,

254 re;cords op 

"The Comniissioners being met, are of opinion that Cal- 
vert street should have the same width, in its extension south 
into the Basin as it has at its intersection with Baltimore 
street which width we find, by the records of the Town to be 
four perches, And we further Certify that from the best 
evidence we could Collect and the most exact Measurements, 
We are of opinion that the West front of Mr. Skinner En- 
nals House is properly fixed on the East side of Calvert Street.

Which Establishment so made has an effect to contract the 
Street where it crosses Water Street to the width of Sixty 
one feet four inches; that is to say, by measuring from the 
Northwest corner of the Brick house formerly Skinner En- 
nals mentioned in the establishment in December 1783 at right 
angles across Calvert Street to the West line, as established 
aforesaid, will produce only sixty one feet four inches thereby 
reducing the said Calvert Street four feet eight inches from 
its original width therefore the present board of City Com- 
missioners considering themselves bound by the Acts of the 
former Commissioners^, have caused a line to be run from 
the Northwest corner of said Skinner Ennals House afore- 
said Parallel with the West line of Calvert Street established 
on the i6h. July 1798 to Pratt Street, intersecting the North- 
ernmost line of Pratt street, sixty one feet four inches East-

lu pursuance of the application of Capt. Thomas Ring to 
establish the dividing line between lot. No. 23 & lot No. 24 sit- 
uate on Queen Street Fell's Point — The City Commissioners 
did meet on the 29h. Ulto. having given four days public notice 
of the time, place & intention of their meeting and adjourned 
to the first instant, at their office, when they again met, & hav- 



298 re;cords of 

ing on their first day of meeting taken sundry measurements, 
Viz, along Thames Street from Bond to Queen Street, thence 
on Queen Street to Wills & Point Street in order to illustrate 
the matter for their consideration they did find the possession 
on the said Streets at Variance with the present record plat 
which was made in the year seventeen hundred & seventy 
three, they also examined the title papers relative to the subject 
before them as well for the lot Number twenty three & the lot 
Number twenty four Among which papers they find that Wil- 
liam Jackson On the first day of August seventeen hundred & 
ninety four conveyed to John Hall a part of lot Number twenty 
three, beginning on the North side of Queen Street, at the 
Southeast corner of John Hall's house, & running & binding on 
Queen Street Easterly five feet seven inches thence parallel with 
the end wall of said house to Wm. Johnson's line, thence on 
said line five feet seven inches and thence to the beginning, re- 
serving the use of a three feet alley on the East side, part of the 
said five feet seven inches of ground the said William Jackson 
grantor being at that time the owner of that part of lot Number 
twenty three, adjoining lot Number twenty four and John Hall 
the Grantee being the owner of lot Number twenty four : — The 
City Commissioners therefore, taking all the circumstances into 
consideration Do conceive, that to do the most equal Justice to 
all parties interested, they are bound to respect the Convey- 
ance from William Jackson to John Hall, the more so as a de- 
parture from that line so agreed on by them would tend to 
create considerable confusion from thence to Will's & Point 
Streets. — Therefore the City Commissioners do hereby estab- 
lish the division line betwen lot Number twenty three, & lot 
Number twenty four to begin on Queen Street at the South 
east corner of John Hall's old house now occupied by said 
Capt. Thomas Ring & to run at right angles with Queen Street 
until it meets a point North thirty one feet four inches from the 
Northwest corner of the said Thomas Ring's brick smoke house 
belonging to his present two story brick dwelling house In 
witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands & seals the day
