History: Founded in 1623, the British/ English Jesuit Province made its first North American foundation in 1633. It administered the Maryland Mission, 1633-1773 (Jesuits suppressed), which began with the evangelization of the Piscataway and other Native Americans in the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac River areas of Maryland and Virginia. Later, the Jesuits expanded and included peoples in New York and Pennsylvania.
