The name Severn comes from the British river separating England and Wales, and early settlers gave that name to our Severn and also to a tidal river in the lower Chesapeake off Mobjack Bay in Virginia. Our Severn is a tidal tributary of the Chesapeake Bay, extending from Annapolis northwestward about 10 miles. Above this, Severn Run provides the main source of fresh water to the tidal river. The depth in the middle of the Severn is typically about 20-25 feet, down to about 10 feet in the creeks.
