John Jarboe was born in Dijon, France, in 1619. [1]

1646 to Maryland

He came to St. Mary’s City in the Maryland Colony sometime before 1646. In that year Leonard Calvert, Governor of the Maryland Colony, recruited men to defend his colony. [1]

St. Mary’s City was the fourth British settlement in North America and home of religious toleration in America.[1]

Land Grants

Jarboe was granted 200 acres in St. Mary’s County for his service. He acquired at least 1000 acres in the area of Britton’s Bay called Newtowne Neck.[1]

Public Service

He later became High Sheriff of St. Mary’s County and member of the House of Burgesses. [1]


John Jarboe was a member of the oldest Catholic Church in the English Colonies that is still active today, St. Francis Xavier (est. 1640), where he is buried in the cemetery.[1]
