Adventurous Lady: Margaret Brent of Maryland

This is the story of the brilliant and tempestuous Margaret Brent who played a leading role in Maryland colonial affairs. 

In 1633 she invested in the undertaking of her kinsman Cecilius Calvert, Lord Baltimore, when he sought settlers for Maryland – a colony founded as a refuge for the persecuted Catholics of England, and a place where religious freedom was promised to be granted to all. 

Once in Maryland, Margaret and her brothers and sister found themselves in the midst of turbulent happenings as the young settlement struggled against incursions from Virginia and eventually from the difficulties of the Proprietor Lord Baltimore, in England as the government fell into the hands of Cromwell’s men. 

In the face of the troubles, Margaret’s true colors bloomed. She took charge of family affairs, protected a Native American princess, ended a mutiny single-handed, and was appointed executrix for the estate of Governor Leonard Calvert. She is known as one of the most fascinating women in early American History.
