CD: Archives of Maryland: 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. To fill this gap to some extent (the editors) have inserted copies of documents preserved in the Publice Record Office, London; but for fuller details the Council Records must be consulted. 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...promulgated a new code, which is here given in full. The cources 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 (the editors) print the Acts only. Of the session of 1688 (the editors) have no lower journal and only a copy of the Upper House Journal. For the important Assembly of 1692, (the editors) have the original journal of the Lower House...Where possible, the text has been supplied from the Acts, or from the Upper House journal.
