States and Counties to research: 


This may be an ancestor (parent or grandparent) of Thomas Going born about 1670 out of Westmoreland County, Virginia, and Stafford County, Virginia – who was ordered to go to Maryland to obtain documents showing he was “free”.  This order may have been referring to his status as an indentured servant – whether he was under an “indenture” or not – since being under and indenture severely limited your rights to do business with others – the court or some official may have wanted proof before approving a transaction of some sort.
