The Great Seal of Worcester County
By John T. Marck
Worcester County was created from Somerset County in 1742 (Chapter 19, Acts of 1742). The County was named after Earl of Worcester. The official seal of Worcester County consists of a shield bearing the Calvert Arms above which is a coronet (symbolic of the Earl of Worcester) and a slightly oval band on which is inscribed the words "County Worcester," which surrounds the coronet and shield.
