On October 19, 1779, he and his brother, John, received 150 acres called The Meadow from their father, Richard.

On May 13/14, 1784, Benjamin Shipley of Anne Arundel County, wheelwright, and son of Richard deceased deeded his interest in 150 acres of The Meadow to Charles Carroll of Carrollton for 5 shillings, because the mortgage was now due, and 70£ 12s was still outstanding on the balance. In this record, Benjamin states that his brother, John "died intestate and without issue, whereby whereby the equitable title to the whole of the said mortgaged premises has devolved on Benjamin Shipley, party to these presents, the eldest brother of the whole blood of the said John Shipley" (witnessed by J.G.

On July 22, 1786, Charles Hammond deeded Leonard Hobbs 105 acres of a tract called Woodford, adjacent Benjamin Shipley.

The text, Shipley's of Maryland, state Benjamin's first wife was Rachel Frost and they had sons John, Caleb, Richard, Benjamin, Francis, and 3 daughters. The marriage to Rachel Frost is innacurate, and the list of children remains unconfirmed (except for John, Richard, Benjamin, Caleb, and Elizabeth).
The texts say he married Amelia Hobbs, and having Henry (unproven), Nathan (unproven), Joshua, Elizabeth, Hammutal, Amelia, Eliza, Mary Ann, Rachel, Margaret, and Lucy (unproven). This list is partially confirmed by Benjamin and/or Amelia's will, that apprears to list their children as Elizabeth Warfield, Eliza Hipsley (m. Charles), Joshua H., Amelia Shipley (m. Samuel), Mary Hipsley, Hammutal Robosson (m. O'Neal), Rachel Becklay, and Margaret Ann. Benjamin and his son, Henry were buried on his farm near route 32 (later owned by Dr. Luke Mercier Shipley), and their tombstones were moved to Dr. Shipley's lot in a churchyard (McKendree Cemetery) near West Friendship, Maryland).
