  • Notes 
    • - From "The Bowies and Their Kindred": In 1741 his [Allen] father conveyed to him part of a tract of land called "Craycroft's Right," adjoining Mount Calvert Manor on the Patuxent River, &, in 1744, he received from his father 400 acres called "Brookridge." This last plantation was but a short distance from the first, and about 3 miles from Nottingham. On a high plateau, about the centre of his estate, Allen Bowie erected a large fram dwelling which is yet standing,...

      - According to "The Bowies and Their Kindred", Allen owned "Leith" or "Half Pone", containing 400 acres; part of "Essex Lodge", containing 300 acres; Reid Farm, 500 acres; all of them in Nottingham District, as well as a house and a lot in that village; a large farm on Collington Branch in the northern part of the county, and 2 tracts of land in Frederick County, near Fredericktown. He also received by his father's will the latter's homeplace, "Brookwood".

      - His will began, "I, Allen Bowie, Gentleman, of Prince George's County, State of Maryland, being of sound mind, but in a low and languid state of body,..." He directs that "my body be buried decently and agreeably to the customs and usages of persons in my condition of life." To his son, Fielder, he gave the bulk of his property, including Brookridge and the house in Nottingham. The land on Collington Branch was left to Fielder and Allen's daughter, Priscilla. Negroes were given to his daughter, Susanah.
