Regarding Peggy Stewart House. "The Stewart House was built between 1761 and 1764 for Thomas Rutland, who sold the house in January 1772 to Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer, agent and receiver-general for the last two Lord Proprietors of Maryland. He was president of the Maryland Council of Safety in1775 and became president of the Maryland Senate when it was formed in 1777. Jenifer served in the Continental Congress from 1778 until 1782 and was a delegate to the Federal Convention in Philadelphia. In July 1772 Jenifer sold the house to Anthony Stewart, an Annapolis merchant who owned the cargo ship Peggy Stewart, which Stewart was forced to burn by Annapolis citizens outraged that he had paid the unpopular tea tax. Stewart fled to England in 1779 and his wife sold the house back to Jenifer that year. Jenifer sold the house to Thomas Stone, one of Marylandís delegates at the 1776 Continental Congress and a signer of the Declaration of Independence, in 1783, then re-acquired it in 1787 upon Stone's death, holding it until his own death in 1790." --
