Excerpt

The study here presented differs from the historical monographs usually published in this series, in that, instead of the development of a single theme in Maryland history, it offers a chronological view of a short period. The object is to present in as complete a manner as possible the facts on record relating to the years 1649 to 1658. This period has not been studied in detail since the publication of the corresponding volumes of the Maryland Archives, the Calvert Papers, and the Maryland Historical Magazine. The paper will, therefore, serve as a compendious record of established testimony. Appended is a summary of cases decided and matters considered in the Provincial Court. The nature of the controversies, the mixture of trivial and serious concerns which came before the chief judicial tribunal, throw light upon the occupations and welfare of the colony.

Similar accounts of earlier periods of Maryland history have been published in these Studies as follows: Beginnings of Maryland, 1631-1639, Series XXI, Nos. 8-10; Maryland during the English Civil Wars, Part I, Series XXIV, Nos. 11-12; Part II, Series XXV, Nos. 4-5.
