George Calvert First Baron Baltimore1

M, b. 1578 or 1579, d. 15 April 1632
     George Calvert First Baron Baltimore was born in 1578 or 1579 in Kipling, Bolton, Yorkshire.1,2 He was the son of Leonard Calvert and Alicia Crossland.1 George Calvert First Baron Baltimore married firstly Anne Mynne, daughter of George Mynne and Elizabeth Wroth, on 22 November 1604 in St. Peter's Cornhill, London.2 George Calvert First Baron Baltimore married secondly Joan (Unknown) in or before 1627.2 George Calvert First Baron Baltimore died on 15 April 1632. He is buried in St. Dunstan-in-the-West, Fleet Street, London.3
When he was about fourteen years old he graduated from Oxford University, and after spending a few years in travel he was made Clerk of the Privy Council and later secretary of state. While holding the latter office he won the favour of James I., by whom he was made a knight in 1617, and in 1625 created Baron Baltimore of Baltimore, Ireland. It was also from the hands of this monarch that he received his grant of the province of Avalon in southern Newfoundland, where he founded a colony, which he visited, but did not remain on account of the extreme cold. After visiting the southern part of the American coast, he urged Charles I. to grant him another patent, consisting of the tract of land now covered by Maryland and Delaware. Lord Baltimore intended to found a state which should be governed by an assembly, and should have an hereditary landed aristocracy.

Governor Leonard Calvert

M, b. circa 1606, d. circa 9 June 1647
     Governor Leonard Calvert was born circa 1606 in England. He was the son of George Calvert First Baron Baltimore. He was sent as first governor of Maryland by his brother, Cecil, Lord Baltimore, who had obtained a charter for the colony from Charles I on June 20, 1632. The expedition set sail from Cowes on Nov. 22, 1633, in two ships, called the Ark and the Dove, and consisted of two hundred persons, part Catholics and part Protestants. They arrived at Point Comfort, Virginia, Feb. 27, and a few days later sailed up the bay and Potomac river, where they purchased from the Indians a tract of land about April 1654, and laid out St. Mary's.

Before the arrival of Calvert, William Claiborne, a Virginian, had established a trading post on Kent island, within the bounds of Maryland, but had obtained no grant of the land. Lord Baltimore instructed Calvert to make friendly overtures to Claiborne. These were rejected and Claiborne sent an armed vessel against St. Mary's which the Marylanders captured after some bloodshed. Claiborne then sailed for England and in February, 1688, Calvert took possession of Kent island without resistance. In February, 1645, while Calvert was in Virginia, an armed English ship seized St. Mary's and about the same time Claiborne re-established himself on Kent island. Calvert re-entered the province in 1646, and proclaimed a general pardon on April 16, 1647. Governor Leonard Calvert died circa 9 June 1647 in Maryland.

Sir Donald Charles Cameron KCMG, DSO1

M, b. 19 November 1879, d. 19 November 1960
     Sir Donald Charles Cameron KCMG, DSO was born on 19 November 1879 in Brisbane, Queensland.2 He was the son of John Cameron and Sarah Annie Lodge.1 He was educated at Toowoomba and Brisbane Grammar schools and at 18 became a clerk in the Queensland Meat Export and Agency Co., of which his father was chairman of directors.

In 1899 Cameron went on a tour of Europe and Asia. He was in China during the Boxer Rebellion and after attaching himself to an American infantry regiment which had been dispatched from Manila, accompanied it to Peking. He returned to Australia in 1901, volunteered for service in the South African War, and on 19 March was commissioned lieutenant in the 6th (Queensland Imperial Bushmen) Contingent. He reached Cape Town in May and for the next year participated in patrolling and mopping-up operations in the Transvaal and the Orange River Colony. On 16 June he risked his life to rescue a wounded trooper and was mentioned in dispatches. His unit was disbanded in June 1902.

In 1902-14 Cameron, with his brothers, managed the family property, Kensington Downs, near Longreach, and was involved in their associated pastoral and other business activities. He visited Europe and the United States of America in 1903.3 Sir Donald Charles Cameron KCMG, DSO married Evelyn Stella Jardine on 18 February 1914 in St. John's Anglican Cathedral, Brisbane.2 Soon afterwards he toured China and Japan; he had just returned home when World War I broke out. He enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force on 30 September and was appointed captain in the 7th Light Horse Regiment; on 17 November he transferred to the 5th L.H.R. and embarked for Egypt in December as second-in-command of 'C' Squadron. From 20 May 1915 until the evacuation his regiment fought as infantry at Gallipoli. Cameron was wounded on 9 June and again, quite severely, on 28 June in the heroic but fruitless attack on Turkish trenches known as the Balkan Gun Pits. This wound was to trouble him for the rest of his life as removal of the bullet which had entered just below his ribs was considered too hazardous.

Cameron was promoted major on 9 September and rejoined his unit in Egypt on 3 January 1916. After serving in the Suez Canal zone he crossed into Sinai in April and for the next ten months commanded his squadron in numerous patrols and skirmishes; he fought in the battle of Romani on 4-5 August. In February 1917 the light horse advanced into Palestine and took part in the battles of Gaza and in operations and patrols in the Wady Ghuzze. Cameron was promoted lieut-colonel on 30 October and took command of the regiment which he led in the attack on Beersheba and the advance on Jerusalem.

In the early months of 1918 he went to England on leave, returning in April to resume command for the offensives against the retreating Turks which ended in their capitulation at Ziza on 30 October. Here Cameron was faced with the task of protecting the enemy force from Allied Bedouin troops while he arranged the surrender. For service in the Palestine campaign he was mentioned in dispatches three times, awarded the Distinguished Service Order and the Order of the Nile, and appointed C.M.G. He was an able commanding officer with a gift for obtaining 'machine-like discipline' from his men without having to demand it; morale in his regiment was always high. The writer Ion Idriess, who served under him, remembered him as 'a nuggety chap, not very tall, with a rugged face that (broke) easily into a smile'; in action he was'never flustered' and was a 'cool but a quick thinker'.

After demobilization Cameron returned to Kensington Downs and in 1919-31 represented Brisbane for the National Party in the House of Representatives. Ill health forced his retirement but he was Nationalist member for Lilley in 1934-37; he contested the Senate election in 1937 but was defeated. As a parliamentarian he represented Australia at the League of Nations Assembly in 1923 and sat on the joint select committee on Commonwealth electoral law and procedure in 1926-27. A tireless worker, he always had the interests of ex-servicemen at heart; and in parliament was a leading spokesman for the Returned Sailors' and Soldiers' Imperial League of Australia; when a history of the 5th L.H.R. was printed in 1926, he paid the publishing costs and presented a copy to every member of the regiment. He commanded the 14th L.H.R. in 1921-24, was president or patron of many social organizations and hospitaller and almoner of the Order of St John in Australia. He was appointed K.C.M.G. in 1932. In World War II he served as chairman of the New South Wales recruiting drive committee for the Royal Australian Air Force.

After the war Cameron lived in retirement in Sydney and Brisbane and towards the end of his life he and his wife were hospitalized in Brisbane; she predeceased him, as did their only daughter.3 Sir Donald Charles Cameron KCMG, DSO died on 19 November 1960 at the age of 81 and was cremated with Presbyterian forms. In accordance with his wishes his ashes were buried near the grave of his grandfather in the family cemetery on Home Creek station near Barcaldine.1,2
