Settlers of Maryland, 1679-1700, Coldham, Peter Wilson
7 Coldham, Peter Wilson Settlers of Maryland, 1679-1700
Baltimore, MD Genealogical Publishing Co. 1995 080631477x / 9780806314778 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover As New with No dust jacket as issued 
Hardcover edition, 1995. Green cover with gold print. Settlers of Maryland 1679-1700 extends Gust Skordas's renowned Early Settlers of Maryland through the last quarter of the 17th century Extracted from the Hall of Records, Annapolis. This book contains the surname, the County abbreviation (corresponding name in the introduction p. x), Name of the tract, acreage, date, and reference numbers to the numbered folios in the Land Office Registers. There is also a full index with corresponding page numbers by Tract. On balance, this is one of the most original contributions to Maryland genealogy. "Peter Wilson Coldham, FASG (1926 – 2012 in London), was a British genealogist. He was noted as "distinguished scholar of colonial American immigration." Wikipedia ; 0.6 x 8.4 x 5.5 Inches; 246 pages; Settlers of Maryland 1679-1700 extends Gust Skordas's renowned Early Settlers of Maryland through the last quarter of the 17th century, identifying several thousand immigrants and their colorfully named tracts. Based on the same series of records as Skordas--Land Office books on file at the Hall of Records in Annapolis--the entries in this work are arranged by family name, county, name of tract granted, acreage, date, and reference to original source(s). Tract names often suggest English places familiar to the settler--perhaps places of origin or residence--and they are so many and so various that an index of tract names has been appended to the book. On balance, this is one of the most original contributions to Maryland genealogy in years.
