1. Originally elected a delegate to the Lower House, Bordley was appointed to the Council by April 6, 1720. However, in a letter dated September 1721, he was discharged from further service as a councilor after angering Governor Calvert with what the governor termed "Council of pernicious Consequence." In February 1721/22, the governor declared that since membership on the Council was the only qualification for membership in the Upper House, Bordley's discharge from the Council also removed him from service in the Upper House.
2. Originally elected a delegate to the Lower House, Rousby was appointed to the Council prior to the fifth session.
3. The election of a new delegate from Annapolis was called for on April 6, 1720, to replace Beale, who had become clerk of the Council prior to the second session.
4. Although his first name was usually given as Roger in the Lower House journal, it was occasionally listed as Robert.
5. Knight was asked to withdraw from the Lower House on October 14, 1720, after the Committee of Elections and Privileges reported that no indenture was returned from the sheriff for his election. The sheriff was fined for not fulfilling his duties.
6. The election of Taylor was declared void on May 19, 1719, after the Lower House determined that the sheriff had been "very partiall and remiss in his Duty." He was declared duly reelected on April 7, 1720.
