  • Notes

    • From Joanne Calvert, Lady Baltimore, Feb 2020:

      This is probably much more than you wanted to know.  My husband and I are very involved with early Maryland history as he descends from Benedict, so I tend to talk in history lessons. Every time we meet the Arundells, descendants of Cecil wife's family, they say" Oh, yes! you are from the illegitimate line!"

      To go back to your question, that's another dilemma! It seems that Benedict Leonard, son of Benedict Leonard, drew up a family tree that was published in The Gentleman, and has obviously, been copied into various trees. In addition, I believe the Royal Automobile Club has a portrait of John, Lord Baltimore; if I remember correctly, they are at Woodcote, one of the Calvert's homes at one time.

      The truth of the matter is this:
      Sir George Calvert, Baron of Baltimore, only Calvert knighted and therefore Sir. Listed on his wife's tomb in Hertingfordbury by George is a list of their children.  The last is John, who died before his mother, so the tomb states.
      Cecil Calvert, 2nd Lord Baltimore, eldest son of George and Anne; his younger brother was Leonard, whom he sent to Maryland in charge of the colony. an even younger brother George accompanied the expedition and drowned while trying to cross the Wicomico River.
      Major-General Charles Calvert, 3rd Lord Baltimore, lived an exceedingly long time. He is presumed to be the father of Charles Calvert, Governor of Maryland 1720-1727 by an unknown woman.
      Benedict Leonard Calvert, 4th Lord Baltimore, died six weeks after inheriting the title. His eldest son Charles inherited the title and the younger son (Benedict Leonard) is the one mentioned above.
      Charles Calvert, 5th Lord Baltimore, acknowledged a son Benedict, who was sent to the colony for his safety, mother unknown, not Petronille Melusina, daughter of George II and his mistress as published in the New England Genealogical and Historical Register by George Sydney Horace Lee Washington. (He published some very good genealogies, but had some hang-ups about the Calverts and the Stuarts of Virginia).
      Frederick Calvert, 6th Lord Baltimore, had no legitimate heirs, but several children by several mistresses.  The most well-known was Henry Harford as Frederick spent a great deal of money trying to legitimize him, although there is a county in Maryland named Harford.
      Thus ended the title.

      More from Joanne Calvert:
      All 11 chldren [of George Calvert] are listed on Anne's tomb at St. Mary's Hertingforbury. Cecil, 2nd Lord Baltimoe married Lasdy Anne Arundell; Anne married George's secretary, William Peaseley; Dorothy died at abt 15; Elizabeth died young and possibly at sea with Joane; Leonard, Governor of Maryland and leader of the expedition 1633-1634 to settle Maryland, supposedly married Anne Brent,no proof has been found; Francis, b 1612, possibly died at sea with Joane; Grace married Sir Robert Talbot, 2nd Baronet of Cartown;George came to Maryland, drowned in 1634; Helen married John Talbot of Ballyconnell, County Cavan; Henry who died at about 17, and John who died within the year. Philip, of George and second wife Joane, last name unknown, came to Maryland, married Anne Wolseley and after her death jane Sewall. Philip, Anne and Jane Sewall's baby were found in the lead coffins buried in the Brick Chapel at Historic St. Mary's.
