Maryland was the 7th State, formed in 1788, with the Capital being Annapolis.  The first European to set foot on Maryland soil in 1524 was an Italian navigator sailing for the French government named Giovanni de Verrazano.  Captiain John Smith explored the arean in 1608 and made maps.  The first settlement took place on Kent Island, where William Claiborne set up a trading post.  Several years later, in 1632, George Calver, Lord Baltimore, secured from Charles I the land on both sides of Chesapeake Bay north of Virginia to the 40th paralled.  Lord Baltimore, died before the charter could be signed.  His son, Cecilius Calvert, the second Lord baltimore, received the grant in his place and began efforts to colonize the area as a haven for persecuted Catholics and those of other religions.  The first emigrants left in 1634 and were comprised of twenty Catholics and about 200 Protestants.  They purchased land from the Indians and settled St. Mary's.
Settlements during the first century of Maryland's colonization were confined to areas by rivers, streams and bays, as water provided pratically the only efficient means of transportation.  Baltimore was founded in 1729.  The Appalachian section of Maryland was not settled untion cira 1740, when the English, Scottish, and Scotch-Irish migrated from St. Mary's, Charles, and Prince George's Counties.  By 1748 Frederich County was organized in the northwest section of Maryland.
Maryland adopted a Declaration of Rights and a state constitution in 1776.  In 1788, Maryland ratified the Constitution and became the seventyh state of the Union.
