    LAND BARONESS by Robert Barnes

    Jane Lowe Sewall Calvert, daughter of Vincent and Anne
    (Cavendish) Lowe, was baptized on 14 October 1633, and died
    in 1700/1. She had a distinguished lineage. The Lowes were
    a family of gentry status from Denby, County Derby, and her
    mother was a relative of the Earl of Shrewsbury.
    Her brother and two nephews settled in Maryland, and established
    prosperous families. She herself made two very good marriages.
    The first was to the Hon. Henry Sewall, and the second was to
    Charles Calvert, b. 1637 and d. 1714/5, 3rd Lord Baltimore, and
    one-time Governor of Maryland. By her first husband, Jane had
    one son and four daughters. Her children's marriages formed the
    basis for a loyal Council for Charles Calvert. By Charles Calvert,
    Jane was the mother of three sons and two daughters.

    Lady Jane is noteworthy for more than her bloodlines, however.
    At a time when most land grants were made to men, she was the
    patent holder of numerous tracts in Maryland.

    In Dorchester County she patented 600 acres called Indian Neck,
    1,000 acres called Warwick (for the home county of her first
    husband), 200 acres called Secretarys Point (at one time Henry
    Sewall was Secretary of the Province), and 3,000 acres called
    Derby (for her own county of birth).

    In St. Mary's County she patented 1,200 acres called Mattapany
    Sewall, which had originally been patented by Henry Sewall for
    1,000 acres.

    In Talbot County she patented 1,000 acres called Sewalls Range
    which was originally surveyed by Henry Sewall.

    In what is now Worcester County she patented 1,000 acres
    called Low Adventure (possibly for the Lowe family) and 1,000
    acres called Hap Hazard.

    In all Jane Lowe Sewall Calvert patented 9,000 acres of land.....
    Jane died intestate, and there is no record of how much her
    personal estate was worth...."
