Query: Washington, DC Land Records

My family owned a 60 acre farm in DC at Terra Cotta - this is listed in the 1850 census.  I am trying to find out when they purchased that land and to find any land records available.  My direct descendents immigrated in the 1840's, I believe, and I don't know if the farm was purchased at that time or was already owned by family members who came earlier.  Any direction wpould be most appreciated.  Thanks!
