Somerset County is the southernmost county in the U.S. state of Maryland. making it the second-least populous county in Maryland. The

county seat is Princess Anne.

 

The county was named for Mary, Lady Somerset, the wife of Sir John Somerset and daughter of Thomas Arundell, 1st Baron Arundell of

Wardour (c. 15601639). She was also the sister of Anne Calvert, Baroness Baltimore (16151649), who later lent her name to Anne

Arundel County, which was erected in 1650 as the Province of Maryland's third county. Somerset County is located on the state's Eastern

Shore.

 

The territory continued to attract new settlers, primarily from Virginia, and by 1666, the territory had met the requirements to become

established as a county in the province with its own local government. On August 22, 1666, Lord Baltimore issued a proclamation

establishing the new county, including the establishment of a complete civil and military organization. The proclamation established a sheriff

and a military commander for the county, and five surveyors charged with laying out a highway to serve the county. In January 1667, the

county administration laid out the five initial districts, designated as "Hundreds", into which the county would be divided. Additional hundreds

were added as additional knowledge of the area was surveyed. (Last updated: 19/02/2021 11:48:04)
