Interesting Facts

  • With the passage of the Acts of Toleration in 1649, the door was opened to Catholics and non-conformists who began moving into Maryland.
  • The Mason-Dixon line was surveyed by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon to establish the boundary between Pennsylvania and Maryland. The survey took nearly four years in the rugged wilderness and was completed in October 1767.  Following the Missouri Compromise of 1820, the line was also used to refer to the boundary between free and slave states.
  • Although there were no major Revolutionary War battles fought in Maryland, there were a number of battles fought there during the War of 1812, most notably the Battle of Baltimore, after which Frances Scott Key penned the words to the national anthem.

Maryland Census Research

2020欧洲杯在线网址Federal census records for the state of Maryland begin in 1790 and continue every ten years, except for the missing 1890 census. Some data is missing from available census records, including:1790 for Allegany, Calvert, Somerset, and part of Dorchester counties (destroyed); 1800 for Baltimore County (never taken); and 1830 for Montgomery, Prince George’s, Queen Anne’s, Saint Mary's, and Somerset counties.


 

2020欧洲杯在线网址A 1776 census which was taken to determine revolutionary population is indexed at the Maryland State Archives, but it is not available for all counties. A 1778 “census” is a list of males over eighteen who in some counties signed the Oath of Fidelity, and, in others, those who did not.


 

Of the few remaining lists, those for nine counties were published by Gaius Marcus Brumbaugh in Maryland Records: Colonial, Revolutionary, County and Church From Original Sources, 2 vols. (1915–28; reprint; Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1985). See also Bettie Stirling Carothers’s compilations, 1776 Census of Maryland and 1778 Census of Maryland (Lutherville, Md., 1972). Both versions of the published 1778 census contain transcription errors. A police census taken in Baltimore in 1868 is also located in the Baltimore City Archives.
