Question #1: In Kent > Bonds there are missing years between volumes 5 and 6. Are there any Bonds available for the years 1767-1777?
Answer #1: In the browse file “Bonds 1664-1708” the original record keeper started recording bonds for the years 1773-1776 at the end of the ledger where the bonds for the years 1664-1798 were recorded. Image #87 shows page 162 on the left side of the record and is dated 1708. The right side page 163 is dated 1773 and the images up to #160 are dated to 1776.
Question #2: In Kent County there is a gap between Wills 1777-1781 Vol 6 and wills 1827-1835 Vol 11. Are those missing volumes available?
Answer #2: Volume 7 is available on microfilm number 14159, which can be ordered and viewed at your local <a href="https://www.familysearch.org/locations">FamilySearch Center</a>. See <a href="Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche">Ordering Microfilm</a>. FamilySearch does not have volumes 8-10.
Question #3: I am seeing wills with dates outside the parameters of the collection in the waypoint Baltimore City > Wills 1675-1721 vol 1. Is this correct?
Answer #3: The wills this Volume cover the years 1675-1755 through image 256 and then revert back to 1720-1721 to the end of the waypoint, though the title page is clearly labeled 1675-1721.
