Maryland Colony

Maryland’s great economy was another reason for why people would move there, and why the colony was so unique. Trade and the economy were dependent on agriculture and developed the plantations exporting tobacco, cotton, corn, vegetables, grain, fruit and livestock. The Southern Colonies also had the largest slave population who worked on the plantations, for those of you who’ve seen Django Unchained probably know what I’m talkin’ about. Tobacco was the colony’s BIGGEST and most important product, as it was very profitable., Lord Baltimore was motivated both by the desire for profit and the desire to create a refuge for Roman Catholics who were still being persecuted in Protestant England.They were off refuge. By 1634, Maryland became one of the few territories of England to be predominately Catholic, and in 1649, the Maryland Toleration Act was passed which guaranteed religious tolerance to settlers, as long as the religion was a sect of Christianity., Many women stayed home and do house chores such as: cleaning, taking care of the children, cooking, doing the laundry. Some women were weavers, and would make clothes for their families. On occasion, women and their daughters would bring old scraps of clothing and come together with other mothers and daughters to have a Quilting Bee.
