Colonial Records of Southern Maryland


Trinity Parish and Court Records, Charles County; Christ Church Parish and Marriage Records, Calvert County; St. Andrew’s and All Faith’s Parishes, St. Mary’s County

This work is a compilation of colonial records of these three counties. The very early Charles County records included here were previously published in Charles County Court and Land Records, Volume I and II, and are believed to be the records of Durham Parish. Records of St. Andrew's Parish have been taken from Lucy Harrison's transcription; they were earlier published in Volumes V-VII of the Chronicles of St. Mary's from the St. Mary's County Historical Society. Calvert County marriages have been abstracted by Mrs. Jourdan from the Scharf Collection. Mrs. Jourdan has consolidated these earlier published records along with the registers of Trinity Parish and the registers of Christ Church Parish and the registers of All Faith's Parish. The only other known vital records of this tri-county area are the Catholic records of St. Mary's County that have been published in Catholic Families of Southern Maryland, by Timothy J. O'Rourke, and are not included here.
