Saint Mary's County, MD - Maryland's Mother County. The settlement of Lord Baltimore's Maryland began with the arrival of passengers from England at St. Clement's Island in the Potomac River in what is now southwestern St. Mary's County on March 25, 1634 (the anniversary of this landing being annually celebrated as Maryland Day). The passengers arrived in two vessels, the Ark and the Dove, which had set sail from the Isle of Wight on November 22, 1633. Among other firsts, St. Mary's was the first county established in Maryland, in 1637, probably by an order of the Governor and is also home to the first Catholic Mass celebrated in the original thirteen colonies. In 2008 the county seat, Leonardtown, celebrated its sesquicentennial anniversary.
