Charles County Maryland was a Protestant county of the Maryland colony. The area was settled by Scottish and English settlers in the second half of the 17th century. There were several Presbyterian groups in the early days although in the 1700s, they appear to have merged to Church of England groups. It has been impossible to trace where John Scott, the immigrant, came from, but it is believed it was from Scotland.
