1. The proprietor Charles Calvert, 5th Lord Baltimore, arrived during the winter of 1732 and assumed the office of governor. Ogle, formerly the governor, was appointed and sworn to the Council on March 21, 1732/33. He was listed in the first position of the Council and Upper House before Charles Calvert (the councilor), who had previously held that position. Ogle used the title of president in correspondence during his term on the Council and in the Upper House. He reassumed the office of governor on June 20, 1733. After the death of Charles Calvert (the councilor) in February 1733/34, John Hall assumed the first position on the Council and in the Upper House.
2. Robert Gordon and Vachel Denton received an equal number of votes in the original election. Although Gordon was declared the winner and appeared in the Lower House as one of the Annapolis delegates, the election was disputed. On July 19, 1732, it was determined that Gordon had not been duly elected because of improper procedures. Gordon, however, won the subsequent election and was requalified one week later on July 26, 1732.
3. Dulany, Beale, Gale, and Gordon were discharged by the Lower House
on March 25, 1734, for receiving places of trust and profit from the government
after their elections. Governor Ogle then dissolved the entire Assembly
in objection to this action.
