Past Updates


Settlers from England began to claim lands in the mid 1600 s under land grants from Lord Baltimore and by 1669 Dorchester County was recognized as a County. It was named for the Earl of Dorset, a family friend of the Calverts (the founding family of the Maryland colony).

The county seat is Cambridge

In 1773 a part of Dorchester County, together with a portion of Queen Anne's County, was taken to form Caroline County.
