Thomas, Joseph Brown, Jr. Settlement, Community, and Economy: The Development of Towns in Maryland's Lower Eastern Shore, 1660-1775. Ph.D. diss., University of Maryland, 1994.

Barnes, Brooks Miles, and Barry R. Truitt. Seashore Chronicles: Three centuries of the Virginia Barrier Islands. Charlottesville: University of Virginia Press, 1997.
