History
 
Canal Run sits on land owned at one point by Charles Carrol, here is some information on this influential individual:
 
Charles Carroll – 1737-1832
 
Charles Carroll was born in Annapolis to an influential family who had arrived in Maryland in 1689. He was educated in France and London and when he returned to Maryland as a young man, his father granted him title to 17000 acres – from the Potomac River to Frederick and the Catoctin Mountains to Dickerson. Carrollton Manor employed hundreds, its orchards, livestock and cedar mill along with his other endeavours making him perhaps the richest man in the colonies..
 
In 1772 he engaged in debate in the Maryland Gazette as “First Citizen” where he argued, always politely, against taxation without representation. He was the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence, served on the War Board during the Revolution and after victory, was elected as Maryland’s first US Senator. He helped create the B&O Railroad in 1828. He also created the Patowmack Company with George Washington which later became the C&O Canal.
 
Charles Carroll died in Baltimore in 1832 at the age of 95. He was the last living signer of the Declaration of Independence.
