History & History Related Items

Brunswick history:

Brunswick began with a land grant to John Hawkins on 10 August 1753. The area of the grant was known as Merry Peep O Day since the sun peeked over the Catoctin Mountain early each morning. The land was deeded to Leonard Smith on 7 November 1780 and he laid out the new town that same year for members of his own family. The town, including two islands in the Potomac River, was sold to John McPherson in 1837.

After Merry Peep O Day the town was also called Buffalo Wallow because thatís what the Buffalo did in the muddy areas there. It was known as Coxson Rest in 1728 along with a trading post run by Abraham Pennington, the first settler. Eels Pot or Eel Town was another name for the area. Eels swam the river in large schools so the Indians built stone walls in the river and made fish traps. Potomac Crossing was also used for a time for obvious reasons. In 1778, a large area was owned by the Earl of Tankersville so the area was called Tankersville for a time. Leonard Smith, who had purchased the land around 1780, named in Berlin at that time, but another town in the area was also named Berlin, so the Post Office assigned the name of Barry in 1832. It was known as Barry until 1890 when the railroad changed the name because of all the railroad workers who lived here from the Brunswick, Germany area.
