Old Somerset on the Eastern Shore of Maryland: A Study in Foundations and Founders


This is the standard reference for researching early families in the present counties of Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset in Maryland. The author describes early settlers, discusses early religious groups, lists hundreds of names, and provides early genealogies of major families. Information was gleaned from deeds, wills; and land, county court and provincial records. A full name plus subject index adds to the value of this work.
