  • The names included on the antebellum Maryland maps are men and women who owned property. They most likely paid a fee to the map-maker to have their names included. Unfortunately, maps with property owners listed only exist for thirteen of Maryland's counties. These maps allow us to place thousands of the more well-off members of Antebellum Maryland society. As property owners in antebellum Maryland, many of those included on the maps were likely to have owned slaves. When possible, the Maryland State Archives performs research to connect the names of slaves with their owners in order to locate enslaved as well as free residents of Antebellum Maryland. These maps provide historians and genealogists with a powerful new tool for research.
