The Plundering Time

Maryland and the English Civil War, 1645–1646

According to most historians, in 1645-46, Richard Ingle and his ship Reformation terrorized the tiny settlements on the Chesapeake Bay, bringing the violence and mayhem of the English Civil War to the New World. But did he? In this thoroughly researched tale of deception, greed, and political intrigue, St. Mary’s City archaeologist Timothy Riordan unearths new evidence—from muddy "Pope’s Fort" in St, Mary’s to the Admiralty Court records in London—to show that revolution was brewing in Maryland with or without the colorful, sometimes roguish Ingle and his crew.
