The King Overrides Virginia’s Objections to the Grant Given Lord Baltimore (1629-1633)

  • July 3, 1633 – to Lords Commissioners for Foreign Plantation
    • Virginia planters object to a grant given to others reapportioning their lands, which may create problems with trade, government, etc.
    • Lord Baltimore was one of the grantees. Baltimore & Virginia planters need to meet up & settle the matter in a friendly way
    • This grant will not interfere with Virginia’s traffic or commerce & there will be mutual legal cooperation between the 2 with respect to natives or justices
  • July 12, 1633 to Governor & Council of Virginia
    • We have received your petition from Virginia’s government. We are setting up mutual correspondence between Virginia & Baltimore & wish to mediate between you 2
    • Baltimore intends to settle in a place called Maryland. We hope that, in the early days of settlement, should the settlers need assistance, that they can count on Virginia. We hope to establish inter-colony commerce to stabilize their early days & to give Virginia new customers
    • These are your countrymen & expect you to act accordingly
