    • On February 22, 1744/5, Lucy Adamson, daughter of John Baldwin Adamson, renounced her right to serve as administrator.

    • On March 22, 1744/45, John Haymond, Administrator of the Estate of John Baldwin Adamson, late of Prince George's County, filed an inventory of the personal property belonging to the deceased. It appears that John was farmer, perhaps a tobacco farmer. His inventory included farming implements and household items, along with books and a horse. Lucy Adamson was named as "relation".

      On March 25, 1747, John Haymond, Thomas Owen & George Beckwith were bound with Thomas Longdon, Basil Adamson and Jeremiah Adamson, orphans of John Baldwin Adamson. This appeared to be part of the settlement of John Baldwin Adamson's estate.

      On October 10, 1753, Margarett Haymond, the Executrix of the Estate of John Haymond, filed an accounting in Frederick County, Maryland in which she paid certain sums to Jeremiah Adamson and Basil Adamson, due to them from their guardian, John Haymond.
