3 Summary Information Repository: Title: Physical Description: Language of the Material: ID: D.488 Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation Department Charles Carroll (of Bellevue) Papers 2 inches Linear Feet English ^ Return to Table of Contents Biographical / Historical Charles Carroll of Bellevue was a prominent figure in early 19th century politics. Cousin to Charles Carroll of Carrollton, signer of the Declaration of Independence, Carroll was a wealthy landowner and a personal friend to James Monroe and James Madison. His title is drawn from the name of his estate, Bellevue, located in Hagerstown, Maryland. In 1814, he was responsible for evacuating Dolly Madison from the White House prior to the British invasion and subsequent burning of Washington, D.C. during the War of 1812, taking refuge at his Bellevue estate. Throughout the course of the war, Carroll s eldest son, Henry, served as personal secretary to Henry Clay, and was the first messenger to deliver news of the signing of the Treaty of Ghent, the peace agreement between the United States and Great Britain, to Washington. After the war, Carroll set his sights on New York State, founding the city of Rochester in conjunction with William Fitzhugh and Nathaniel Rochester before buying further lands in the Genesee valley region. Though his role in Rochester s history is somewhat obscure, Carroll took an active role in helping develop the commercial center. He corresponded frequently with his co-founders on how to best develop the land, and travelled personally to research new milling methods which he brought back and implemented in Rochester. In 1811, he moved to Washington, D.C. with his family in tow, marking the start of their migration to north and, sure enough, by 1815 Carroll had sold Bellevue in Hagerstown and had established a new estate in Groveland, New York. After three years, James Monroe offered Carroll the position of Federal Registrar of Lands for Howard County in the Missouri Territory, which he accepted. While Charles was occupied with the Groveland estate and other affairs in the east, such as the development of Rochester as an important milling center, Henry Carroll went in his father s stead to the new territory to tend to his duties as federal Registrar of Lands. As was foreshadowed by the lack of direct Presidential appointment to a previously requested position, Henry proved unequal to this role, inciting the anger of locals who viewed him as corrupt. By this point, Charles had also arrived in - Page 3-

4 Franklin, Missouri with most of his family, notably Charles Holker (his second son) had remained behind in New York to tend to his fathers estate in his absence. However, it would seem that Charles arrival had little effect on the enmity of his son Henry s enemies, for on February 29, 1820 Henry was shot and killed by Major Richard Gentry. Though his father sought legal action for the murder, Gentry was able to avoid prosecution through the legal efforts of his lawyer Thomas Hart Benton. The death of his eldest son had a lasting effect on Carroll. By 1821, Charles had returned to New York and resigned from his position in Missouri, though his plan originally seemed to have been permamnently moving west. In his resignation he urged President Monroe to appointment a replacement quickly, giving firm evidence that he held no further interest in the title. He died in 1823, having never achieved justice for the murder of his son Henry. Upon the death of his father, the management of family affairs was handed to Carroll s second eldest son, Charles H. Carroll, who continued to operate and reside at the family s Groveland estate in Livingston County. Charles H. Carroll went on to become an important Whig politician, serving as a judge ( ), a state senator ( ), and a member of the House of Representatives ( ), going on to become New York state s candidate to the Electoral College (on the American Party s ticket) for the 1856 presidential election. Much of the correspondence in this collection pertains to Charles H. Carroll s career and family life. Both Charles and Charles H. Carroll are buried in Williamsburg Cemetery in Groveland, New York. ^ Return to Table of Contents Containing a total of 39 letters and documents, The Charles Carroll (of Bellevue) Papers span the latter years of Charles Carroll of Bellevue and the adulthood of his son Charles H. Carroll. The collection is divided into two sections: ephemera and correspondence, with the correspondence subdivided into those which pertain to family and political matters. Ephemeral items include a stereotype of Charles Carroll of Bellevue, newspaper clippings from the murder of his son Henry Carroll at the hand of Major Richard Gentry, expense records (some documenting purchases Henry made in London), and documents heralding the quality of Charles H. Carroll s imported bull Usurper. Henry Carroll s London purchases were an attempt to court Emily Caxtan, however,she did not return his advances, and married another man. The family correspondence mainly concern Charles Carroll of Bellevue and his son, Charles Holker Carroll. The topics of the correspondence vary and are at times light-hearted, but occasionally very serious, such as the letter in which Charles Carroll addresses Charles Holker to both congratulate him on his marriage and express his grief and anger at the murder of Henry. Correspondence which is neither from nor addressed to either Charles is also present, such as correspondence between Alida Carroll and Ann Carroll (daughter and mother in law, respectively). - Page 4-

5 With the exception of several letters dated prior to 1823, such as Charles Carroll s letter to James Monroe resigning his position in the Missouri territory as Federal Registrar of Lands, the political correspondence in the collection pertain to the career Charles H. Carroll led as a judge and member of the New York State and federal legislature (both as a member of the Senate and the House of Representatives). The dinner invitation extended to Charles Holker came from friends within the Whig party and includes signatures from David Graham, J.S. Woodhall, Jas. VanMostrand, Jas. Thayer, and Marshall Roberts on behalf of the Whig corresponding committee. Other notable figures in this collection include Henry Clay, James Madison, and Thurlow Weed (see collection A.W39), the latter two being correspondents. Henry Clay is not a correspondent, but a copy of his legal act which changed compensation for employees at federal land offices is included. ^ Return to Table of Contents Administrative Information Publication Statement Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation Department Rare Books Special Collections Preservation Second Floor Map Rush Rhees Library Rare Books, Special Collections and Preservation Department, Rush Rhees Library Second Floor, Room 225 Rochester, NY ^ Return to Table of Contents Collection Inventory Title/Description Instances Correspondence and Ephemera, ( ) Box 1 Stereotype of Charles Carroll (of Bellevue), undated box 1 Folder 1 Newspaper clippings, murder of Henry Carroll, c box 1 Folder 2 - Page 5-
