The Calvert Family

The Calverts were from a Yorkshire farming background, but the 1st Baron rose to become Secretary of State to James I. He married well: his first wife Anne Mynne (1579-1622) was descended from King Edward III. Most American Calverts are descended from either Leonard Calvert (1610-47), George’s 2nd son and the first Governor or Maryland, or from Benedict Swingate Calvert (1724-88) the natural son of Charles Calvert, 5th Baron Baltimore.
