This chapter describes events in Maryland and England in the 1640s.The settlement of Maryland as a Catholic colony by the Calvert family began in the 1630s. After the English Civil War broke out in 1642, an English trader, Richard Ingle, brought Parliament’s ideology to Maryland in 1644. Local rebels joined him to cast out the Catholic lords and would govern themselves until 1647. This was known as Ingle’s Rebellion, or the Plundering Time. Meanwhile in England, Cromwell’s New Model Army grew revolutionary, as the Leveler movement pushed for a wide franchise. In 1649, King Charles was executed.
