I've been researching the two Carrol properties in Baltimore,
Ely O'Carrol and Litterlouna, would you have any information on them? From what I've read on line they were owned by the Carroll family since the 1600s. I'm also interested in the Thompson line that married into the Carrolls.
Charles Carroll the Colonel's son was also named Charles Carroll. He married Caroline Thompson of Virginia. "As they preferred to live abroad, the estate was sold to a brother, John Lee Carroll, governor of Maryland, in 1875. The governor's first wife was Anita Phelps of New York; his second was Mary Carter Thompson, sister of his brother's wife," Swann writes. "His son by his first wife was also Charles Carroll, who left the property to the last Charles Carroll to own Doughoregan Manor. He sold to Philip Acosta Carroll, the present owner, of another branch of the family Swann writes.
In 1689, he was granted Ely O'Carroll, a 1,000-acre estate in Baltimore County, and in 1695, Litterlouna, a 400-acre estate in Baltimore County,
I was wondering how my Thompson and Savier lines had possion of those two same properties in 1838?
