1655 :: Those who Governed Maryland

The Sampson Waring mentioned below as one "who governed Maryland" is a 6th great-grandpa of Berta Mary Henry nee Sharp (1873-1955) . . . who is a maternal great-grandma of the Keeper of this family history blog . . .

A List of those who governed Maryland before it was made A Royal Province (Penna. Mag., Vol. XXII. p. 98).—My attention has been called to the fact that in my "List of those who governed Maryland before it was made a Royal Province" I had overlooked the fact that the Commissioners appointed by the Parliamentary Commissioners on July 22, 1654, claimed the right to add to their numbers. Shortly after their appointment they added Captain Robert Slye to the list; on June 26, 1655, they increased it by the names of Thomas Meeres and Thomas Marsh; on August 13, 1655, they further added Michael Brooke, Robert Pott, Sampson Waring, and Woodman Stockley; before March 12, 1656/7, they had added William Parker and William Parratt, and Philip Thomas and Samuel Withers were probably chosen members at some time before March 16, 1657/8. — "Council Proceedings," Vol. I. pp. 315, 316, 317, 318, 335.
