Residents and descendants of immigrants to Old Somerset Co., MD and Sussex Co., DE 1600-Date

Apr 6 2021 UPDATE: This project includes all the data in my files to date and covers immigrants and their descendants spread throughout the U.S. that typically immigrated to old MD and VA. It is a work-in-progress and includes 33,733 individuals with some photos embedded as of this time. Some lines are thoroughly researched and some are more preliminary so please know that when you poke around here. If you are one or have roots on the Eastern Shore of Maryland/Delaware, you will find relatives here! You can also see some of my history blog writings at


Old Somerset County, Maryland as it looked before 1742 made up of various hundreds (special thanks to my buddy John Lyon for this image). It was formed in 1666 when only a few settlers were in the region. In 1742, it was split north/south down the middle when Worcester County was formed. In 1750, its top was cut off when the Transpeninsular Line was run to define where the Delaware/Maryland border was located. However, it was not till 1774 that Delaware took over administering lands and people north of that line. Finally, in 1867, Wicomico was formed out of Somerset and Worcester. Our ancestors may have lived in Somerset, Worcester and Wicomico (or Sussex in Delaware) over the years and never moved! ENJOY!
