Product Description:
Charles Carroll of Carrollton is most often remembered as the sole Roman Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence. In this monumental study of the Carrolls in Ireland and America, that act vindicates a family's determination to triumph without compromising lineage and faith.
Ronald Hoffman peels back layer after layer of Carroll family history, from dispossession in Ireland to prosperity and prominence in America. Driven to emigrate by England's devastating anti-Catholic policies, the first Carroll brought to Maryland an iron determination to reconstitute his family and fortune. He found instead an increasingly militant Protestant society that ultimately disenfranchised Catholics and threatened their wealth and property. Confronting religious antagonisms like those that had destroyed their Irish ancestors, this Carroll and his descendants founded a fortune--and a dynasty that risked everything by allying with the American Revolutionary cause.
Meeting each crisis with a tenacious will to survive and prevail, the Carrolls earned an esteemed place in the new nation. Hoffman balances private lives against their contentious public role in American history. The journey from Irish rebels to American revolutionaries shaped and shattered the Carrolls--and then remade them into one of the first families of the Republic.

Product Description:
The Habsburgs have been described at one extreme as demons – responsible for a ‘long history of atrocities’; and, at the other, as dodos – living fossils unable to adapt to the modern world. In reality, the flamboyant royal family appear, in many ways, to have behaved much like most other monarchies. Their story, however, is none the less enthralling for that. It is populated by such unforgettable figures as mad Queen Juana, progressing through Spain with her husband’s decaying body; the ‘heroically fertile’ Maria Theresa, and the quixotic Maximilian, ‘Emperor’ of Mexico.

Product Description:
166 pp. 18 photos, maps, & illus; index. The Palatine Families of Ireland documents the genealogies of all those courageous families who left their German homes and were settled by the British in Ireland. The product of forty years of research in Ireland, England, Germany, the United States and Canada, this volume chronicles the lives of all these emigrants and their descendants, often to the third generation. The German origins of many families are discussed, taking some lines back into the 1600s. Many of the families, after living in Ireland for fifty years, kept moving on to the New World and arrived in colonial New York in the 1760s. Many of this group then migrated to Canada due to the American revolution, and their descendants stayed loyal to the Crown - many becoming United Empire Loyalists such as the Dulmage, Embury, Heck, Ruckle, Detlor, and Lawrence families. This book is yet another companion volume to Henry Z Jones's lifelong project of documenting, using original sources, all the families in the great Palatine exodus of 1709/10.
