CD: Proceedings and Acts of the General Assembly of Maryland, April 1684-June 1692


"The present volume continues the Proceedings and Acts of the Assembly from April, 1684, to June, 1692. The continuity is broken by the revolutionary outbreak of 1689, no journal of the Associators' Assembly having been preserved…This revolutionary Assembly, which handed over the Province to the King, was succeeded by one elected under the new order of things, and presided over by Lionel Copley, the first royal governor, which, among other fundamental changes, repealed all existing statutes in mass, and promulgated a new code, which is here given in full. The sources for the session of 1684 are the original journals of the two Houses…Of the session of 1686 no journal of either House has been preserved, and we print the Acts only. Of the session of 1688 we have no Lower House journal, and for the Upper House only a copy made in the last century…For the important Assembly of 1692, we have the original journal of the Lower House…Where possible, the text has been supplied from the Acts, or from the Upper House journal…Here and elsewhere such restorations are indicated by brackets."
