     Calvert County occupies the Calvert Peninsula which is bordered on the east by the Chesapeake Bay and on the west by the Patuxent River. Its county seat is Prince Frederick, Maryland. The county's name is derived from the family name of the Barons of Baltimore, the proprietors of the English Colony of Maryland.
     First settled as part of Charles County (much larger than the present-day Charles County, Maryland) around 1650, it was renamed. Patuxent County was established in 1654 by an Order in Council. In 1658 the county was renamed Calvert County. It is one of the older counties in Maryland, after St. Mary's County, Kent County and Anne Arundel County.
