Charles Carroll of Carrollton and his Caton Granddaughters: The Making of the Three American Graces

Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a leader of the American revolutionary movement in Maryland, a signer of the Declaration Independence, and one of the wealthiest men in Maryland, was the patriarch of a large extended family. In this talk focusing on his unique relationship with his three Caton granddaughters

known as the "American Graces," historian Mary C. Jeske will trace how Carroll made possible the sisters' impressive careers in England, where all married into titled families, in sharp contrast to his comparative neglect of his other granddaughters, particularly the daughters of his only son, Charles Carroll of Homewood.

Mary C. Jeske is an editor at the Charles Carroll of Carrollton Family Papers.

A reception with the speaker will precede the lecture at 5 p.m.

The lecture is presented in celebration of Women's History Month and in conjunction with Homewood Museum's special focus exhibition "Curating the Carrolls," on view through March 20, 2016.
