A Bay Weekly conversation with local author Mick Blackistone
Mick Blackistone has a name in Chesapeake Country.
Part of it came to him effortlessly, by the grace of inheritance.
Blackistone is a name of reckoning in Maryland history. Mick, 66, his twin brother, two older sisters and scads of cousins are the 14th generation to descend from Nathaniel Blackistone, colonist under Lord Baltimore’s land grant, who arrived in Maryland in the party of the Arc and Dove in 1634.
