Anne Calvert, Baroness Baltimore (née Arundell; 1615/1616 – 23 July 1649) was an English noblewoman, daughter of Thomas Arundell, 1st Baron Arundell of Wardour by second wife Anne Philipson, and wife of Lord Baltimore, who founded the Province of Maryland colony. Anne Arundel County in Maryland, (the third of the state's 23 counties/jurisdictions), in the U.S., was named for her. In addition, USS Anne Arundel (AP-76), an American naval transport ship of the Elizabeth C. Stanton-class was in turn named after the Maryland county. It served in the United States Navy from 1940 to 1970.
She married Cecilius Calvert, second Lord Baltimore, (1605-1675), in 1628 at age 13 when he was 18. This was when his father Sir George Calvert, first Lord Baltimore, (1578-1632), was embarking on his first colonial endeavor in Avalon located in Newfoundland (of future eastern Canada) and six years before son Cecilius after the death of his father, supervised the sailing of the second colonial enterprise in 1633 to the Chesapeake Bay area, north of the earlier colony of Virginia, which was named "Maryland" after Henrietta Marie, the wife and Queen of King Charles I, (1600-1649). A settlement arrangement for the marriage between them was made on 20 March 1627/28. According to Gibbs, she is said to have been a most beautiful and accomplished woman. Of her nine children with Lord Baltimore, three survived to adulthood.
