      District of Columbia created by Act of Congress 15 Sep 1787 and established Dec 1800.

      Before the District was created in 1790, the Maryland portion (what is now DC) was in Montgomery County, MD from 1776 - 1790. Prior to 1776, it was in Frederick County, MD. Until the Federal City was built, the port of Georgetown was the only major town within the current DC boundaries, with the port of Alexandria on the other side of the Potomac. Although the town of Frederick was the county seat of Frederick County, Georgetown rapidly grew to rival and surpass it in size. When Montgomery County was created, Georgetown became the county seat.

      Thus, anyone researching Georgetown relatives prior to 1790 should look in the records of Montgomery County, and before 1776, in the records of Frederick County. This can cause confusion, as modern-day Frederick County is rather far from Washington. For example, I had originally assumed that an late 18th-early 19th century resident of Georgetown must have moved to the town from either the town of Frederick, Maryland, or the rural areas surrounding it, as I found him on the Frederick County, Maryland muster rolls for the Revolutionary War. It turned out HE had not moved, the county boundaries had. He was already comfortably ensconced in Georgetown!!
