Colonial Families of Maryland II: They Came, They Flourished, and Some Moved On
Author: Robert Barnes
Paperback, 177 pages
Whereas the first volume in this series traced the families of roughly 500 colonists who entered Maryland as either indentured servants or convicts, this volume treats a cross-section of Maryland’s colonial population. Researchers will find families living throughout the colony here, though most resided in Anne Arundel or Baltimore County. Some families are followed beyond 1776, including a number who vacated Maryland. In cases of families whose male lines have died out, Mr. Barnes traces the female lines for one or two generations; where colonial women married two or multiple times, the author traces the descendants of all their marriages.
