Society and Cultures in Maryland

The first settlers came to St. Clements Island, Maryland, on March 25, 1634 from England for religious freedom that was not approved by the Church of England. Each year Maryland recognizes this day as Maryland Day. The settlers discovered the Accohannock Indian tribe settlements in the area along the eastern shore region. Many different immigrant groups also came to Maryland during the early period including African and Irish that formed colonies. Maryland's first town, St. Mary's, was established by both Protestants and Catholics in 1634.
