Notable People

 

Early Maryland was shaped by the efforts of many women and men.  Evidence about some of them has survived is considerable quantities, while others have nearly vanished from memory.   Most of the data about them is from legal records because few letters and no diaries or commonplace books have survived from 17th-century Maryland settlers.  Even documents from Cecil Calvert are rare, with the majority in a small collection called The Calvert Papers owned by the Maryland Historical Society.

 

In this section, we present biographical information and other insights about a few of the many fascinating individuals who influenced or directly participated in the creation of Lord Baltimore’s Maryland.  Our intention is to expand this as new evidence is collected and more research conducted regarding the colony’s founders.
