in approximately 1636 or 37. He married

Anna had Wolleston Manor built in Charles, Maryland on 2000 acres which he
received the patent for in 1642 requested by Lord Baltimore and arranged for and
surveyed by his brother Governor Leonard Calvert. Wolleston Manor is named
in honor of his grandfather's home in Northamptonshire, England where his
grandfather was a Lord.

with them. He was a member of the Privy Council, a Magistrate, Deputy
Governor, and was Commissioner of the Treasury for the colony. He was an
envoy to Spain for several years and some of their children were born there.
