Some Interesting Annapolis Tidbits
Annapolis, Maryland is located in Anne Arundel County. According to the census that was taken in 2011, the population of Annapolis was 38,509 people. This population represents a 7.50% increase in the population of Annapolis since the year 2000.
Native Indian tribes such as the Algonquins inhabited the area long prior to the arrival of white settlers in Maryland. By 1649, the Algonquins were forced out of the region by the Susquehannock tribe's raiding parties and Annapolis was established.
Greenbury Point, which is located close to what is currently known as Annapolis, was the home of the original white community. The Puritans who lived in Virginia were threatened by the Anglican Royal Governor with severe punishments if they didn't worship in accordance with the doctrines of the Anglican Church during the middle of the 17th century. The second Lord Baltimore named Cecil Calvert offered the Pilgrims trading privileges, freedom of worship, and generous land grants if they would relocate to Maryland, which he wanted to settle. On the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay at a location at the mouth of the Severn River they started a settlement in 1649.
The new community was named Providence by the Puritans. The overseer of the colony, Lord Baltimore granted a charter to the county that surrounded the new community in 1650. He named it after his wife Anne Arundel who is the namesake of the county. Partially because he was Roman Catholic, the Puritans wouldn't sign an oath of allegiance to Lord Baltimore. Governor William Stone commanded the St. Mary's militia, who was sent by Lord Baltimore, to force the Puritans to submit in 1655. That same year, a battle took place between the two factions. In the first battle between Englishmen on the continent of North America, the Puritans won the battle. Maryland eventually became a colony of England. In 1694, the capital was relocated further north at the location of what is currently known as Annapolis. For some unknown reason the Puritan community of Providence was gone by that time.
What is currently known as Annapolis started to develop on the peninsula as a small community. At that time the community took its name from the county and called itself Anne Arundel Town. By the late 1600's the small community had a population of almost 25,000 people. Some people began what was then the capital, named St. Mary's, but this location was too distant from the location where most of the people were living.
English Governor Francis Nicholson selected the location of what is currently known as Annapolis after determining that a capital that was more centrally located was required. In 1702, Princess Anne became the Queen of England and was then namesake of the community. It was Governor Nicholson who decided that the community should be built much the same as the grand capitals of Europe with a grand baroque street plan. The streets were intended to radiate in a circle, of which the capital was in the center. An Anglican Church was built in a second circle. Residential areas were built for working men and their families, artisans, and for prosperous families. In the center of Annapolis, Governor Nicholson granted a charter for the King William's School which was built in 1696.
