Description and Holding Information
1634/35-, Maryland, Prov./State, Jrnls. of the Gen. Assembly/House
Journal of the House of Delegates of the Maryland General Assembly: title varies, St. Mary’s City & Annapolis, var. St. printers, 1635- (Maryland’s
colonial origins date back to a charter granted to Cecilius Calvert, the 2nd Lord Baltimore, by King Charles 1 of England. The charter authorized a
colony in the wilderness between the then somewhat uncertain limits of the colonies of Pennsylvania and Virginia. Definitive boundaries were not settled
until 1763-67, when the drawing of the Mason-Dixon Line determined Maryland’s boundaries with the colonies of Delaware, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The
founding Royal Charter also permitted Lord Baltimore to make laws “with the advice, assent and approbation of the Free Men of the same Province, or
the greater part of them, or of their delegates….” The first Maryland General Assembly was convened by the first governor of the colony, Leonard
Calvert, Lord Baltimore’s brother, in 1634/35. ” The Assembly met in in St. Mary’s City, then the colonies major settlement. Until 1650 the legislature was
unicameral, after which date it was composed of upper and lower houses; i.e., the governor’s Council and the House of Freemen. In 1695 the capital was
moved from St. Mary’s City to Annapolis (formerly the settlement of Providence). The last colonial era assembly was suspended by the royal governor
in 1774, and the colony was governed for the next three years by an extralegal provincial convention. A new constitution in 1776 established a
legislature composed of a Senate and House of Delegates. The first General Assembly of the newly constituted legislature met in Annapolis in 1777. Maryland
was the 13th state to ratify the Articles of Confederation and was the 7th state to ratify the new Constitution.)(The journals in the Early State Record
collection were digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Maryland Historical Society, the Maryland State Library, the Library
of Congress, and the John Carter Brown Library in Providence, Rhode Island).
