David Brown patented land called "Buck Harbor" based upon a warrant of Dec 1 1790, certificate of Dec 2 1791 and land patent was granted May 9 1812 (MSA S11, MdHR 17,485, 1-23-4-42). It was a resurvey of "Heath's Venture" originally granted to William Heath on Sep 29 1762 for 100a. The resurvey found the original 100a and added vacancies of 93a and renamed it "Buck Harbor." This tract is located on modern-day maps in northwestern Worcester Co., near where McGrath Road ends at Stevens Road. This is the location where Washington Hitch lived in the 19th century, his mother McRitty (Brown) Hitch having inherited the land.
He also patented a resurvey of his grandfather George Brown's land "Browns Chance" on Oct 24 1795 (survey date) and called it "Addition to Browns Chance" in Somerset Co. (So Cert. 0099) This land is NE of Princess Anne, MD about half way between the town and the Somerset/Worcester County line.
