About Augustine Herman

Augustine Herman, First Lord of Bohemia Manor (about 1621 – September 1686) was a Czech explorer, merchant, and cartographer who lived in New Amsterdam and Cecil County, Maryland. In the employment of Lord Baltimore, he produced a remarkably accurate map of the Chesapeake Bay and Delaware Bay regions of North America, and established the enormous Bohemia Manor plantation in southeastern Cecil County, Maryland. Chroniclers spell the name differently: Herman, Herrman, Harman, Harmans, Heerman, Hermans, Heermans, etc. Augustine Herman himself usually spelled his name Herman, which is now the accepted way of spelling his name. He frequently added “Bohemiensis” as a suffix.
