Worcester County, MD USGenWeb Project

Worcester County, MarylandThe history of Worcester County's boundaries is very important to a family researcher. Originally, it was a part of Somerset County, founded in 1666. Worcester County itself was born on December 10, 1742, when the eastern section of Somerset was incorporated into a new county. The map at right shows these original boundaries. Up until 1760, the colonies of Maryland and Delaware also both claimed the area of southern Worcester County. Finally in 1867, Wicomico County was created from parts of Somerset and Worcester. Additional maps of the area can be seen on the maps page.
