BOZMAN, John Leeds, lawyer and author, born in Oxford, on the eastern shore of Maryland, in 1757; died in 1823. He was educated at the University of Pennsylvania, afterward read law in the Middle Temple, London, became an eminent lawyer, and for several years was deputy attorney general of Maryland. He was the author of "Observations on the Statute of Jac. I., ch. 16, in Relation to Estates Tail"; "A New Arrangement of the Courts of Justice of the State of Maryland" (1802); "Essay on the Colonization Society" (Washington, 1822); and "History of Maryland, from 1633-'60," the introduction of which was published in 1811, and the complete work in Baltimore in 1837. He was a frequent contributor of prose and verse to Dennie's "Port-Folio" and other journals: and he wrote also "An Historical and Philosophical Sketch of the Prime Causes of the Revolutionary War," which was suppressed because of its partisanship, praising Washington at the expense of Franklin.
