Relocating to Cobb Island

The town of Cobb Island, from which the island derives its name, encompasses both the entirety of the island itself and a small portion of the mainland across the water in the area known as Cobb Neck. The island's name originates from its intriguing past, tied to the privateer activities of James Neal in 1642. As a privateer, Neal operated as a legal pirate under the British Empire, intercepting Spanish ships carrying treasure from Central America to Spain. Upon capturing these vessels, Neal distributed the Spanish coins to Maryland colonists after cutting them into smaller denominations known as "cobbs." This practice not only enriched the local community but also lent the island its distinctive name, "Cobb Island." This historical connection adds depth and intrigue to the island's identity, reflecting its role in the early colonial history of Maryland.
