A Biographical Dictionary of the Maryland Legislature, 1635-1789, Volume 2

This unique historical and genealogical resource draws on the extraordinarily intact legislative, judicial, religious, and personal records of members of the first Maryland legislature. The two-volume set contains profiles of nearly fifteen hundred men who served in the state's legislature in the first 150 years after Maryland's founding.The major public and private aspects of each legislator's career are quickly discernible: family background, marriage, children, social status, religious affiliation, occupation, other offices held, and military service. Many entries include a brief summary of a legislator's stance on public and private issues. A final category, wealth at death, inventories the legislator's estate and notes any significant changes in wealth between first election and death.

Review

"Certainly one of the best reference works on early Maryland history." - American Reference Books Annual "A valuable reference work." - Journal of the Early Republic "A handsomely printed and useful reference tool for colonial historians." - Journal of Southern History "Party affiliation or the holding of legislative office forms another focus for collective biography... A superb example is A Biographical Dictionary of the Maryland Legislature, 1635-1789... The articles are well researched and documented."
