3rd Baron Baltimore in the Irish Peerage. 2nd Proprietor of Maryland. 6th and 9th Proprietary Governor of Maryland. He arrived in 1661 to serve as Deputy Governor, and inherited the colony in 1675 on the death of his father, but the favoritism shown to his relatives and other Catholics, as well as his restriction of suffrage beginning in 1669, led to a decline in the proprietary government's popularity. Various rebellions fomented during the next few years, and in 1684 he returned to England to defend himself in a border dispute with William Penn, as well as to answer charges of favoring Catholics. The effects of the so-called 'Glorious Revolution' led to the overthrow of the proprietary government in Maryland the following year. He never returned to his colony, and the Baltimore charter was eventually annulled by a writ in chancery in his lifetime.
