This appendix supplements but does not supersede Henry Holliday Goldsborough's
manuscript List of Civil Officers of Maryland [1637-1891] at the Maryland Histor-
ical Society. Although Goldsborough presents a nearly complete series of incum-
bents in the non-lucrative offices, he gives little information about the places
of profit and in fact omits some of them entirely.
The present list includes all lucrative offices except the following: those
which were in existence for only a brief period (all treated in the text), the
Master Gunner and Armourer (see chapter V, note 50, Sheriffs, Proprietary
Naval Officers, Farmers of Quit-Rents, Deputy Commissaries, and Deputy Surveyors.
A list of the Sheriffs, to 1694, may be compiled from the published Council re-
cords in the Archives of Maryland (here abbreviated AM), and a similar list, from
1727 may be extracted from Commission Book No, 80, at the Hall of Records. For
the intervening period it would be necessary to consult the county records. The
other offices here omitted were of little value.
Throughout this list the county of residence, except for Governors, and the
religion (Catholic or Protestant) of each office holder are indicated. The names
of men related, by blood or by marriage, to any member of the Lord Proprietary's
immediate family are marked with an asterisk.
