Anne Arundel and Howard Counties Maryland

I typically focus on the state of Ohio but, when locating or profiling the early settlers I always try to link them up with their families from "back home".  So, while working on a family who came from Fauquier Virginia and from Anne Arundel, Maryland before that, I ran across this little gem:

The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties Maryland; a genealogical and biographical review. . . :  https://archive.org/details/foundersofannear00warf/page/n7

It's a treasure trove of information.  The index in the back covers the entire alphabet but the 5 surnames I tagged are the most prolific.    Just though I'd share my find.  smiley

Warfield's book is a good source.  I own the hard copy but it's good to know i's on the internet, so I can include that link in my citations.  One warning, however, is that any of these older books -- Warfield's Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties was published in 1905 -- lack the benefit of modern scholarship and citations, so the chances of error is higher.
I would recommend cross-referencing where possible with wills and other primary documents; Maryland wills back in some cases to the 1630's-1640's are available on FamilySearch (unindexed image collection, so it requires a little effort to find the specific records).

There's another must-have source for Anne Arundel genealogy: Anne Arundel Gentry, by Harry Wright Newman.

Newman's scope is a bit narrower, but he was much more organized and thorough.
