James Barwick operated the ferry from Melvill's Warehouse on the east side of the Choptank River to "the causeway" opposite the warehouse on the west side of the river at a landing later referred to as the Road to Hardcastle's Mill Landing. Barwick also operated an inn near the warehouse. The causeway was probably located on the southwest corner of the John Williams owned "Luck by Chance" parcel just opposite and above the warehouse site.  Landing Creek, north of the warehouse and also on the west side of the river apparently had a landing facility of some kind during the same time period (see Melvills Warehouse for additional information on this ferry).
