Maryland Oaths of Fidelity


Maryland Oaths of Fidelity - Bettie S. Carothers. By an Act of the Legislature, 1777 Session, Chapter Twenty, all free males over eighteen were to take an Oath of Fidelity and Support to the State of Maryland, and inscribe their names, no later than 1 March 1778. Quaker, Mennonite, and "Tunker" males were to "solemnly and sincerely and truly declare and affirm" that they held to the principles expressed in the Oath, and were also to affix their names. The resulting lists of jurors (i.e., those who took the Oath) and some non-jurors (i.e., those who did not take the Oath) are here in alphabetical lists for each county. Previously printed in two volumes, now one. (1989), 2006, 5½x8½, paper, alphabetical, 118 pp.
