Troth’s Fortune

William Troth, who lived on a plantation called Troths Fortune located along the Choptank River, freed all his slaves by 1766, probably because of his Eastern Shore Quaker beliefs.  He took a stand against slavery during his time when such beliefs were unpopular for this region.  [Bourne, Michael and Pamela James. “Troth’s Fortune.” National Register of Historic Places Inventory – Nomination Form, 1974.]
