1. The session of April 1684 was actually a continuation of the previous session, which had been adjourned, rather than prorogued, in order to save temporary laws. For convenience it is listed here as a separate session.

2. There is no evidence that he sat at either the first or third session.

3. Following the ordinance he had proclaimed in 1681, Lord Baltimore issued writs to elect only two delegates per county instead of four.

4. Elected on October 11, 1683, to replace Miles Gibson.

5. The mention of "Captain Richard Ladd" as a member of the first session was probably a clerk's error. Francis Hutchins and Richard Hall were present at all three sessions, and the county was allowed only two delegates. The clerk probably meant to write Capt. Richard Hill, a delegate from Anne Arundel County.
