    Baltimore Hundred (in Sussex County, DE)

    Latitude: 38.5334462
    Longitude: -75.1662966
    Prior to the occupation, in 1682, by Penn, of the territory embraced in this hundred, a number of patents were issued by the Duke of York. The lower line of Penn's purchase was Fenwick's Island, then called Cape Henlopen. (The present cape bearing that name was then called Cape "Cornells," later "Inlopen.") A dispute arose between Penn and Lord Baltimore as to which cape was meant, in defining the boundaries of their provinces. William Penn ordered a surveyor to lay out a tract often thousand acres for a manor for the Duke of York, the location suggested being a "rich ridge'' st the head of Murderkill Creek, near the "Choptank Road." The manor, for some reason, was located on what is now Fenwick's Island, some miles from the situation originally designated.
