Family Relationships and origins of the various Maryland Rawlings have been elusive, and important relationships may not have survived in the records. But the records provide clues to their lives, and the conditions which motivated their actions, or thwarted their dreams and desires.

Other Rawlings which appear in the early records of Maryland are: Anthony Rawlings (1637), St. Mary's County, Nicholas Rawlings, Charles County (and Stafford County, Virginia); Daniel Rawlings, Calvert County, Paul Rawlings/Raulins, Prince Georges County, William Rawlings, Anne Arundel and Prince Georges County, Richard Rawlings and Aaron Rawlings, Anne Arundel County.

Catholic church in St. Marys, c. 1671
George Calvert wanted to establish separation between Church and State, but the Calverts were thwarted in this effort by the Virginia Company "Puritans" when Cromwell took power, and again after the "Glorious Revolution" when William and Mary took advantage of opportunists in the Colonies to demand an Oath of Allegiance to the Church of England.
