Frederick County was created in 1748 from parts of Prince George’s County and Baltimore County. In 1776, Frederick County was divided into three parts. The westernmost portion became Washington County, named after George Washington, the easternmost portion became Montgomery County, named after another Revolutionary War general, Richard Montgomery. The central portion remained Frederick County. In 1837 a part of Frederick County was combined with a part of Baltimore County to form Carroll County.
