Maryland was founded as the third English colony in the NewWorld, and it was
distinctive for the policy of its founder, Lord Baltimore,religious freedom
for all.

This freedom of religion was denied Englishmen during thelifetime of George
Calvert, the first Lord Baltimore, whose dream it was to foundsuch a colony.
Born about 1580 in Yorkshire, Northern England, he was the son ofLeonard
and Alicia Crossland Calvert, a family of wealth and socialposition in that
area, and probably a Catholic family.

In spite of his religion, or perhaps because the family hadpreviously
abandoned Catholicism in the face of rampant Protestantpersecution, he rose
to a position of political influence in the court of King JamesI. He was
knighted in 1617 and in 1619 became principal Secretary of State.

In 1624, George Calvert resigned his position and announced thathe had
become a Roman Catholic. King James rewarded Calvert for pastservice by
making him Baron of Baltimore. Long interested in thecolonization of
America, the new Lord Baltimore now turned his talent, energy and
considerable fortune to the establishment of a new colony inAmerica.

His first venture was Avalon, a settlement at Ferryland, a harborcommunity
located on the southeastern coast of Newfoundland. He equipped agroup of
colonists and sent them to the settlement about 1622, and hereceived a royal
charter to the province of Avalon on April 7, 1623.

Because of the severe winter climate, the colony did not prosperand, in
spite of Calvert investing a large portion of his fortune in theventure, it
failed. He visited the colony in 1628 and abandoned it the nextyear in
favor of Virginia. The Avalon colonists were not welcomed inVirginia,
however, where the colony's laws provided for strict Protestantconformity.

Calvert refused to take the required oath of supremacy atJamestown and
planned to return to England. Before he went, however, heexplored the
Chesapeake Bay and saw unsettled land where the climate wasconducive to
farming. Upon his return to England, he petitioned King Charles Ifor a
grant of land north of the Virginia colony.

George Calvert never returned to America. Physically andfinancially
weakened by the Avalon experience, and saddened by the loss atsea of his
second wife and children--they had remained behind in Virginiaafter he left
and were returning to England on another ship--the first LordBaltimore died
on April 15, 1632.

Cecelius Calvert inherited his father's title--and his dream. Twomonths
after his father died, he received the charter from King Charles,granting
the second Lord Baltimore almost regal powers and ownership ofall the land
of the colony which he had named Maryland, in honor of the Motherof God.
This land was used to attract settlers to the new colony.

Those who would pay their own way to Maryland were granted 100acres of land,
and if they transported servants--men and women who agreed toindentured
service for seven years to pay for their passage--they couldobtain 100 more
acres. Later, that amount was reduced to 50 acres of land, andthe servants,
after their term of servitude was over, would also be granted 50acres of
land.

After months of preparation and delays, the first colonistssailed from
Cowes, Isle of Wight, England on Nov. 22, 1633, on two ships, theArk and the
Dove. After a frightful, stormy voyage of more than three months,they
finally landed on St. Clement's Island about March 10, 1634.

Cecelius Calvert named his brother, Leonard, as governor of thecolony, and
he stayed in England to administer the colony's affairs there.Gov. Leonard
Calvert was an able administrator, serving the colony for 13devoted years,
until his death in 1647. He was especially adept in dealing withthe Indians
who inhabited the area, the Piscataway and Yaocomico tribes ofthe Algonquin
Indians. It was the Yaocomico village on the banks of the St.Mary's River
which the governor purchased in 1634 and renamed St. Mary's City.
The colony prospered, in spite of political and religiouscontroversy. In
England, there was continued political upheaval and religiousintolerance,
and that condition was reflected in Maryland. There were repeatedefforts to
wrest the government from Lord Baltimore. In 1649, the MarylandGeneral
Assembly passed an Act of Religious Toleration, which wasremarkable because
it was passed at a time when there was rampant religiousintoleration, both
in England and in the other American colonies.

After several abortive attempts at overthrowing the Proprietarygovernment in
Maryland, the Protestant revolution of 1689 was successful. Itwas fomented
largely by the non-Catholic colonists of Maryland--abouttwo-thirds of the
population of Maryland at that time--who had benefited by thereligious
toleration policies of Lord Baltimore.

Almost immediately after the take-over occurred, the subjugationof all
Catholics began in Maryland. Justices and other public officials,even
sheriffs and clerks, were replaced if they were Catholics. Armsand
ammunition of most Catholics were confiscated. The very presenceof any
Catholic in St. Mary's City during the session of the Protestant
Associators--the group which was to constitute the ruling body ofMaryland
for the next two years--was forbidden.

In 1692, an Act was passed which established the Anglican Churchas the
official church of the colony, and all residents were taxed tosupport the
church. Catholics were excluded from public office, from voting,or even
jury duty.

In 1704, the "Act to prevent the Growth of Popery within thisProvince" not
only forbade all works of conversion but also closed all Catholicchurches
and schools in the province. Most of them still clung to theirFaith,
however, and practiced their religion privately, in their ownhomes. Many
baptisms and marriages were recorded in the Anglican churches,usually with a
notation that they were known Catholics

These restrictions on public worship and other persecution ofCatholics
continued through the colonial period, which extended to theAmerican
Revolution and the Bill of Rights.

Marylanders, both Catholic and Protestant, fought valiantly inthe
Revolution, and the newly-independent United States used the vastwestern
domain which the English had won in the French and Indian War andceded to
the new American nation at the end of the Revolution, to rewardthose who
served in the Continental Army and Navy. These western lands werealso
available to persons other than veterans, and between 1789 and1799, nearly
500,000 acres of undeveloped western land, most of it in what istoday the
States of Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, wasoffered as a
means to promote settlement of the country's frontier.

Many of these western migrants were Maryland Catholics. Burdenedby a century
of anti-Catholic bias in Maryland, they sought not only new landbut, once
again, religious freedom. Even before the greatest migrationbegan in 1789,
Maryland Catholics were on the move.

In 1785, a group of southern Maryland residents formed a"Catholic League of
Families" and agreed to move to Kentucky as soon as they couldsettle their
affairs in Maryland. John Carroll, Archbishop of Baltimore,promised to send
a parish priest if the emigrants settled together.

Another reason for the exodus of people from the Chesapeake Bayarea to
Kentucky was the depredation suffered by the citizens at thehands of the
British during the Revolution. The British fleet, almostconstantly present
in the Bay, confiscated slaves and stock, sacked homes andliterally lived
off the supplies plundered from the Maryland residents.

Economic reasons also figured in the exodus to Kentucky. Manyfarmers were
ruined by the Revolution and lost their lands because they couldnot pay
their debts. They saw migration to Kentucky as a way out of theireconomic
woes.

St. Mary's County, alone, lost nearly 3,000 persons to thewestward migration
between 1790 and 1810. Most of these people went to that area of
north-central Kentucky which now comprises Washington, Nelson,Marion and
Hardin counties.

Because most of these people were Catholics, this area ofKentucky is known,
even today, as the Kentucky Holy Lands.
