Loss of territory[edit]

I replaced a reference to the loss of "several thousand square miles" with "one thousand square miles." Although Maryland became considerably smaller due to land disputes with the Penns (over Pennsylvania and Delaware), much of this land was due to arguments over the northern border, and the earlier loss of all of what is now Delaware. The actual mistake that Charles Calvert made was in regard to the southern border of Delaware, and the location of the true "Cape Henlopen" as there were two capes of similar names. See Transpeninsular Line. By the way, Maryland also lost considerable territory in the west due to disputes of whether the Northern or Southern Branch of the Potomac is the source of the Potomac.

For my rough calculation of the land loss in this area see talk:Transpeninsular Line.

Benedict Swingate Calvert (c.1724-88)[edit]

Recently someone added quite a bit of facts about Charles' son, Benedict Swingate Calvert, to this article. Although it is interesting, it really is not relevant there. If someone thinks that he is worthy of his own Wikipedia article, please add it here: Benedict Swingate Calvert. Below is the text I removed from the Charles Calvert article. — Eoghanacht talk 17:22, 15 February 2006 (UTC)


Charles was also survived by an illegitimate son, Benedict Swingate Calvert who was married to a daugther of Captain Charles Calvert who had goverened Maryland 1720. [1]. {Captain Calvert was a son of Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore.

I came to this discussion page to ask why we have so much genealogy information for a descendant on Charles Calvert's page, only to see that it was removed once already. I think it should be removed. Paddling bear (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 16:05, 3 January 2009 (UTC).
