Biography

George Calvert was a younger son of George Calvert, 1st Lord Baltimore. He was christened on 08 JUL 1613 at St. Martins In The Fields, London, Middlesex, England.[1]

Upon the death of George Calvert Sr., Cecil Calvert became the 2nd Lord Baltimore. He received a charter for a colony in Maryland in 1632. There were challenges to the charter. He sent his brothers, Leonard, who was to be Governor and Deputy, and his younger brother, George, to establish the colony. They left for the new world on the ships Ark and Dove in October 1633. George died in Maryland or Virginia soon after arrival in America.[2]
