Frederick history:

The town was laid out by Daniel Dulany in 1745. The first settlers were of German descent, Johann Thomas Schley and his wife, Maria. They built the first home here. Within only three years, the new town was named the county seat of Frederick County. While the exact name is unsure, the town was probably named for Frederick Calvert, the 6th Baron of Baltimore, but others say it could have been Frederick Lewis, the Prince of Wales or Frederick II of Prussia.
