Re: Adams family of Maryland
In Response To: Adams family of Maryland ()

Hi Paul :)

I am interested in the ADAMS family from Maryland. If I understand
you correctly, then Mary ADAMS was wife to William & mother of John?

The William CALVERT of that record was the son of
Leonard CALVERT occ=first Governor of Maryland.
Leonard d=@37 & this young William was under the gueardianship of
Leonard's brother Cecil CALVERT occ=second Lord Baltimore.

This William's grandfather was George CALVERT,
who was the first Lord Baltimore & the first proprietor
of the land which would become the state of Maryland.

.1 Leonard Readman CALVERT, Sr. m=CROSSLAND
..2 George Crossland CALVERT, (LordBaltimore#1)
...3 Leonard CALVERT, (Governor#1 of MD)
....4 William CALVERT d=1682 MD,Wicomico-River (drowned)
m=Elizabeth STONE
...3 Cecil(ius) CALVERT, (Lord Baltimore#2) m=Anne ARUNDELL
....4 Charles CALVERT, (Lord Baltimore#3 & Governor of MD)

There is a book about the CALVERT family & their slaves,
which I have not been able to track down near me
... perhaps someone else is interested in this ?

"A Chesapeake Family & Their Slaves - a study in historical archaeology"
by Anne Elizabeth YENTSCH & published by Cambridge University Press
in 1994.

You can try worldcat to see if there is a library near you with it.
You can also see the first few pages of the book there at ...
