From Side-Lights on Maryland History with Sketches of Early Maryland Families by Hester Dorsey Richard, Baltimore, Maryland, 1918, vol. 2, pp. 418-420:

"Christopher Randall, second, one of the Colonial Justices of the Baltimore County Court, was exercising the functions of his important and dignified office as early as the year 1723, according to the court records of that county (see Liber 1723-24, pp. 207, 308, 437).

"That he faithfully performed his duty in the administration of justice is evident, as he was continued in offic by Governor Charles Calvert, through whose favor he was appointed. For proof of this the following record is taken from page 2, manuscript, 'Commission Book,' at the Maryland Historical Society.

"'March 3, 1726, By order from his honor the Governor, commission was issued to Christopher Randall as one of the Commissioners of the Peace for Baltimore County.'

"Christopher Randall, second, inherited Randall's Fancy from his father, and in addition acquired large tracts for himself. Of these Good Fellowship is of special interest, as this original grant from Charles, fifth Lord Baltimore, has descended for nearly two hundred years ancestrally to Honiorable Henry Gassaway Davis, its present owner.
