Scope and Content

The contents of John Eager Howard's real and personal estate were sold at auction beginning a scant three weeks after his death. The sale took place in accordance with Howard's wishes as expressed in his will, dated 9 October 1827, four days before his death.

Baltimore County Will Book (1827), Liber 12, ff. 408-409. Maryland Hall of Records, Annapolis.

The will directed that “my personal estate and so much of my real estate as may be necessary should be sold by my Executors...at public or private sale...for the payment of my debts.” The will records Howard's intention to have made “a more particular distribution” of his estate, had he survived his last illness. Choosing, however, to make some will rather than die intestate, Howard named his sons George and Benjamin Chew Howard as executors and granted them full powers over the handling of the estate.

Howard's six surviving children (George, Benjamin Chew, William, James, Sophia Howard Read, and Charles) and two grandchildren (John Eager Howard, son of John Howard, and James Howard McHenry, son of Juliana Howard McHenry) were granted specific bequests of real property, and many of their names turn up on the list of purchasers from the auctions. Howard's wife, the former Peggy Oswald Chew, had died earlier in the year.

The detailed “Day Book of the Executors of J. E. Howard”

Howard Record and Account Books (MS.469.1). Manuscripts Division, Maryland Historical Society.

gives evidence of the way in which George and Benjamin Chew Howard carried out their responsibilities as executors, and sheds additional light on the circumstances of the sale. Recorded in the daybook are receipts from advance and private sales (including the sale of the contents of Howard's liberary, to one H. W. Bool), as well as various payments out for services rendered. Three bailiffs were hired to watch over the property at “Belvidere” for eight days and nights preceding the sale. Also recorded are payments made for the printing of a catalog (two copies of which are in MHS library collections)

Catalogue of the Furniture, Plate, &c. of the Late Col. Howard.... (Baltimore: Printed by J. Robinson, 1827). Charles Howard's annotated copy of the catalog is in the Library collections (MHF 5476.H81.F9); Benjamin Chew Howard's annotated copy is in Box 19 of the Howard Papers (MS.469), Manuscripts Division, Maryland Historical Society.

and for a

commission to Harrison & Sterett “for sales at Belvidere including advertising.”

The sale itself, according to the catalog, was to take place at 9 AM in Belvidere House. Payments were to be made in cash--“Baltimore Money.” Articles from the house were described in numbered lots, in much the same fashion as they later appear in the sales book, but lacking the price and purchaser information. The sales book, therefore is the more complete and final record. It should, however, be used in conjunction with the materials in MS.469 and MS.469.1 if a complete picture of the circumstances of the sale is sought.
