Barbara,

I've never seen any report before of Philip Darnall coming to Maryland.
Certainly Henry Darnall was here and was very prominent and was very
wealthy. Do you have a source for Philip's sojourn in Maryland?

The Darnall Family

Philip Darnall was the first of the family to immigrate to this country;
he was born in 1604. A relative and the secretary to George Calvert who
would later be created first Lord Baltimore, Philp became one of the
wealthiest men in Maryland. Before his arrival in the Americas, however,
Philip Darnall had accompanied George Calvert on an extended diplomatic
mission to France where they were both converted to Roman Catholicism.
His son, Col. Henry Darnall, 1645-1711, acted as Proprietory's Agent to
the second Lord Baltimore and served as his Deputy Governor.
