“Kent, as a county, is rich in precious historical gems, and the object of this book is to present in a clear, connected and authentic manner some of these events. The author has had three chief objects in view — accuracy of statement, simplicity of style, impartiality of treatment.” This history contains data from 1630–1916 concerning Kent County and its county town, Chestertown. Kent County was developed from the Isle of Kent, an area much fought over by Maryland and Virginia in the early 1600s. It is based on facts contained in books, newspapers and articles. This work traces the progress of the county, from political, educational, and religious standpoints, as well as recounting Indian stories, racing events, and superstitions. Lists of county and town officials, as well as soldiers are included. Other important people discussed are Claiborne, Tilghman, Parker, Reed, Knight, Pearce, Vickers, Usilton, Wroth, and many others. Fascinating photographs, illustrations, and a map provide readers with a special view of early Kent County. An every-name index has been added.
