Planned Weekend Trip – Day 2

A short trip from Monocacy to Worthington Valley to visit Montmorenci. This property was first named in about 1734 by Samuel Worthington, Jr. The first house was built between 1823 and 1932. This home, Montmorenci, has been in the Worthington family into the 1900′s.

As with Monocacy, here is how Captain John fits in.

Captain John and Sarah Howard Worthington
John Worthington, Jr 1689 – 1763
Samuel Worthington, 1734 – 1815
Walter Tolly Worthington 1765 – 1843
John Tolly Hood Worthington 1788 – 1849
John Tolly Worthington 1816 – 1859
Sallie Howard Worthington 1843 – 1917
Marie Conrad 1884 – 1921

As with Monocacy, the common ancestor is John Worthington, Jr, and Samuel and John Worthington III were brothers.

Of note: Samuel was married twice, and they had 22 children. All of the above named people, and many other Worthington’s are buried at near by Saint Johns Episcopal Churchyard not to far from Montmorenci.

Please visit my headstone blog, where you can see all of the headstones of this family.

The Episcopal Church has played a role in this family from Captain John through this line. In Captain John’s time, it was the Anglican Church, Saint Anne’s in Annapolis to be specific. But the names of the above people can be found on the records at Saint Thomas Garrison Forest and Saint Johns (Western Run, as it had been called) Worthington Valley.

I hope to be able to worship at Saint John’s on Sunday.

The map below, for me, puts a relationship between St. Thomas and St. Johns. St. Johns is about where the number 128 is above the green arrow. St. Thomas is the blue bubble.

Montmorenci is a beautiful home and not too far from Saint Johns. Here is a picture I took a couple of years ago, while visiting the house..
