                           Preface.                  xi

    

     granted in 1715, Governor Hart being retained in office. The royal

     government had lasted twenty-four years.

       Governor Hart returned to England in 1720, and was succeeded in

     1721 by Charles Calvert, whose kinship to the Proprietary is obscure.

     During his administration the boundary troubles with Pennsylvania

     again entered on an acute stage, and there were complaints of Mary

     landers of forcible dispossession and other high-handed acts.

       Charles Calvert was succeeded in the governorship by Benedict

     Leonard Calvert, a brother of the Proprietary, who took his seat July 3,

     1727. We have a number of interesting particulars about him in the

     Diary of the antiquarian Thomas Hearne. Young Calvert was a

     student of Christ College, Oxford, while Hearne was resident at the

     University, and the old Jacobite seems to have conceived a friendship

     for him as an estimable young man of amiable character and scholarly

     tastes. Benedict drew up for him with his own hand a pedigree of the

     Calvert family, which may be found in Hearne's Diaries under the date

     of Sept. 1, 1718, and which serves to correct several errors into which

     biographers have fallen.
