"A List of the Number of Taxables Belonging to the Several Persons in Charles County abstracts from the Several Constables Lists for the year 1733"
This Charles County tax list was prepared and annotated by Combs &c. researchers from transcriptions generously provided by Charles County Researcher John B. Lomax. All annotations in [brackets] are John's. All other annotations are by Combs &c. Researchers.


John adds: "The above was the title of the handwritten list. The list was read in sequence, top to bottom, left column first then right column, with the sequence number (within each district) for each person recorded below. I have attempted to be very accurate in this transcription; characters and/or words that were unreadable or uncertain are shown within square brackets and with a question mark. The notes in brackets are mine to better explain each record."
