History: Founded, 1623, the British/ English Jesuit Province made its first North American foundation, 1633. It administered the Maryland Mission, 1633-1773 (Jesuits suppressed), which began with evangelizing Native Americans (e.g. Piscataway) in the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac River areas of Maryland and Virginia. Later, the Jesuits expanded and included peoples in New York and Pennsylvania.
Holding of Catholic records about Native Americans in the United States: See F.O. Edwards, S.J., "The Archives of the English Province of the Society of Jesus," Catholic Archives, Part 1, 1(1981):20 and Part 2, 2(1982):37.
Unless noted otherwise, the repository named above holds (or held) the records described and not the Marquette University Archives. However, Marquette’s holdings, e.g. Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions Records, include related records about these Native and Catholic groups and places.
