**This date appears to be an error. The Index to Probate Records of Prince George's County show an inventory for Robert Orme dated 1714. There are administration records for Robert Orme in 1716, John Orme, admn., and in 1717 Levin Covington, admn. Nothing has been found to substantiate the 1722 probate date which is probably a transcription error.
***Deborah Keniston was probably the widow of Thomas Kennister who "had 12 years in which to surrender the plantation" of Robert Stanley of Calvert County to Robert Bowen, s/o Richard Bowen. The will of Robert Stanley, written 20 Feb 1683, named Richard Bowen as executor. Robert Bowen was the first husband of Sarah Orme.
In 1699 Deborah Keniston gave Moses Orme a bay mare with the brand "on the Farr buttock R.O." and the will of Deborrer Kennerson, Prince George's Co., written 20 Apr 1703 names Robert Orms as executor. (MD. Cal. Wills, Vol. I, :133; Vol. HI, p. 14). Her estate was settled in Prince George's County in May 1703.
