About Henry Darnall, Sr.

Colonel Henry Darnall (1645–1711), was a wealthy Maryland Roman Catholic planter, the Proprietary Agent of Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore (1605–1675). He served for a time as Deputy Governor of the Province. During the Protestant Revolution of 1689, his proprietarial army was defeated by the Puritan army of Colonel John Coode, and he was stripped of his numerous colonial offices. Darnall died in 1711.

Legacy

A small portion of Darnall's former property, now called Darnall's Chance, can be visited today. The house sits on several acres of a formerly large tract of land of thousands of acres patented in 1704 by Darnall.[17] This plot was sold in 1741 by Darnalls' granddaughter Eleanor Darnall Carroll and her husband to James Wardrop, a merchant. He built the house ca. 1742. It was restored to its mid-eighteenth century state to reflect the life of Lettice Lee, who lived there for 30 years.
