St. Joseph's Manor


St. Joseph's Manor
In 1765, with authorization of Mission Superior George Hunter, Joseph Mosley, SJ, who was then stationed at Bohemia Manor, began the process of buying a small parcel of land in Talbot County near Queen's Town on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake. Taking possession of the track in March, Mosley arrived with eight enslaved people from White Marsh plantation.
