Baltimore County

Baltimore County was formed by 1659. At that time it included parts of (or the whole of) todays: Harford Co., Cecil Co., Frederick Co. & Carroll Co. The original County Seat was at Spesutia Island , it was next located in Joppa Town. As a result of a popular referendum in 1768 (there is a large list of residents signing the petitions, which seems to be about the most complete list of men in the County at the time), the county seat was moved to Baltimore Town. When Baltimore was incorporated as a city, the county seat was moved to its present location in Towson.

Since 1851 Baltimore City and Baltimore County have been two completely separate enities, each with their own records. There is a separate web page for Baltimore City on the USGenWeb Project. So please also check the Baltimore City page when looking for persons in the city or for information on cemeteries and land that are now located in the City. One way to identify the difference in census records is that the city was in wards and the county had districts.
