DNA:  5th GREAT GRANDFATHER, NOTLEY ROZIER YOUNG and WIFE ELEANOR JANE DIGGS YOUNG

 

Your 5th Great Grandfather was 3Notley Rozier Young, born on September 24, 1738 in Prince George's County, MD.  He died on March 23 in 1802 in his office Bank of Columbia, DC. 

He married your 5th Great Grandmother Ellinore/Eleanor Jane Diggs 4 who was born in 1742 in Rock Creek Parish in PGC. She died 40 years later in their home, Cerne Abbey Manor in PGC.  Note: Cerne Abbey Manor was located where the Capitol now stands.

Both are buried at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church Cemetery in Forest Glen, Montgomery County, MD.  Earlier they were buried on their estate, and then moved as the city expanded.

Notley Rozier Young, a patriarchal figure in what eventually was known as Washington City, was a staunch Catholic at a time when there was strong prejudice against Catholics in England and America.  His manor home became a refuge for Catholics.  George Washington demonstrated the need for freedom from religious bigotry when he banned the anti-Catholic Guy Fawkes celebrations in 1775.

Guy Fawkes Night began in England when a group of English Catholics plotted, and failed, to assassinate the Protestant King James 1 and replace his rule with a Catholic head of state.  Guy Fawkes was arrested for guarding the explosives hidden beneath the House of Lords. Bonfires and effigies of the Pope were common in England after this and practiced each year from 1605.  In America it was known as Pope's Day or the English name of Guy Fawkes' Day.

Notley's manor with a chapel occupying the western wing of the house stood on a bank of the Potomac River on what is now G Street, between 9th and 10th, SW.  Notley Rozier Young had some issues with Pierre Charles L'Enfant who was "autocratic and irascible"* to Notley whose manor occupied part of L'Enfant's plan for the new federal city.  Ironically, today L'Enfant Plaza is at this location.  Notley's wealth appears to have been made by the lease and sale of his lands.  Since he had a large number of slaves, there was no doubt tobacco farming occurring on his lands also.  *http://www.360cities.net/image/notley-young-plantation-view-from-bannerker-park                    Notley's Plantation Map:

 

It is interesting to know that your 5th Great Grandfather knew Thomas Jefferson who visited his home in the fall of 1790.  Eleanor, his first wife, was now passed. Evidently the purpose of this specific visit by Secretary of State Jefferson was to meet with landowners in that area to plan the federal city of Washington.  The Young home and that of other landowners was obtained by an act of Congress to build the new capital city.  I would suspect the subject of this visit was unwelcomed.

When Notley died in 1802, his farms were put up for sale that September through the DC "Orphan's Court".

In Pursuance of Orders

DNA:  4th GREAT GRANDFATHER, NICHOLAS (DIGGS?) YOUNG and WIFE SARAH FENWICK YOUNG

Nicholas was born at Cerne Abbey Manor in PGC, MD on March 12, 1764.

His wife, Sarah Fenwick was born on Dec. 19, 1773 in St. Inigoes, St. Marys, MD.  She was the daughter of Major Ignatius Fenwick.  (DAR/SAR approved).  Her mother was Sarah Taney Fenwick.  Ignatius was a "gentleman-farmer" and he and his wife Sarah were very influential Catholics descended from the settlers of Lord Baltimore's Catholic colony (for the most part). 

Sarah's brother Edward Dominic Fenwick was a quiet unassuming man, who left America to study at the English Dominican College in Belgium, was ordained as a priest in 1793, returned to this country and in 1806 he was ordered to Kentucky where, using his part of his family's inheritance, he established St. Rose Priory, and then moved on to Ohio.  Fenwick and his nephew Rev Nicholas Dominic Young served the 250 or so people there. The Church decided to establish a diocese in Cincinnati and Sarah's brother Edward Dominic Fenwick became the first Bishop there, by orders issued from Rome in 1822.  He made annual trips to the diocese and on one visit 11 years after being consecrated as a Bishop, he contracted cholera, died in his hotel room in Wooster, Ohio in 1832 and was buried within a few short hours due to the frantic fear of contagion...all before he could receive last sacraments!
