About John Spalding

John Spalding (c. 1675–1726) gained more land, moved eventually

to Charles County, and kept the faith when anti-Catholic

laws spread to the formerly free colony. Land was wealth. Wealth was also ownership of human beings to work the land. By the time of Catherine’s birth, Maryland had one hundred thousand black people, very few of them free.3 Faith and freedom to practice it, fortune and slavery to maintain it—these were the contradictory elements in the heritage of the Maryland Spaldings. They saw no discordance, taking their way of life for granted as a right to be maintained.
