Thought you might be able to help me with this. Carroll, Thompson & Savier Ely O' Carroll and Litterlouna in Baltimore 1838.
My Thompson family in Baltimore had ownership of these two properties in 1838 according to Chancery Court records. Would you have any information on this?
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. "Thus it is that this property has been in the same family since it was granted." .
If these two properties were owned by the same familyfor all that time, how did George M. Thompson and his wife Laura V. Savier Thompson come into possession of the land in 1838? (My 4th. great-grandparent's)
