I need to make a dating profile for colonial Delaware. One of the requirements of it is to have a relationship history. I need someone to find out the relationships colonial Delaware had with other colonies/countries.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Delaware related with Pennsylvania and Maryland. Delaware related well with William Penn, who was in charge of Pennsylvania. This was because when Penn requested him to lease him the western shore of Delaware he accepted. The acceptance by Duke infuriated Baltimore, who was the governor of Maryland. He believed he had the rights to the land. The relationship between Maryland and Delaware therefore worsened. They fought for almost 100 years until the borders were defined in 1768. Delaware, therefore, related differently with different colonies.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
