Carr, Lois Green. "Maryland's Seventeenth Century." Maryland Humanities (Winter 2001): 6-12.
Annotations / Notes: This is an especially cogent overview by the dean of the modern Chesapeake School of historians of the major issues concerning Maryland's founding and the travails encountered by those who settled there over the remainder of the century. It should also tantalize readers to consult her many other publications.

Carr, Lois Green. "Sources of Political Stability and Upheaval in Seventeenth-Century Maryland." Maryland Historical Magazine 79 (Spring 1984): 44-70.
Annotations / Notes: Challenging the prevailing notion that seventeenth century Maryland politics were inherently chaotic, Carr argues that community networks were being formed through which information was exchanged and community oversight imposed, and that County courts emerged as de facto local governments. Local men, who may have been planters or former indentured servants, were appointed as justices. During the hiatus following the Revolution of 1689 local government continued to operate. After discussing the various political crises before and after 1689, Carr concludes that the underlying cause of Maryland's political instability was a failure of leadership of the men at the top of Maryland society.

Carr, Lois Green. "The Foundations of Social Order: Local Government in Colonial Maryland." In Town and Country: Essays on the Structure of Local Government in the American Colonies. Edited by Bruce C. Daniels, 72-110. Middletown, CT: Wesleyan University Press, 1978, pp. 72-110.
Annotations / Notes: The structure, powers and functions of local government, which were established in the seventeenth century lasted well into the twentieth century with only slight changes. Based upon English precedents, local power was vested in a system of county courts, and power was not shared with parish vestries until establishment of the Anglican Church in 1692, and even then the vestry never attained the influence it did in Virginia. For most of this time the justices sitting as a group in the county court exercised executive power. During the instability of the Glorious Revolution, the county courts continued to function. Given the high mortality in the seventeenth century, service was not restricted to men who were wealthy or well connected, although that would change in the next century.
