Family History

The Dalton Family
The Daltons can trace their family line back to England. They have the distinction of being one of the earliest settlers, arriving in Jamestown, VA in the 1600s and eventually relocating to what is now Herndon, Virginia. The family has a long and notable history of serving the government primarily in intelligence and clandestine operations. Family history alleges that Captain Horatio Dalton served General George Washington as a double agent during the American Revolution.

In the 1900s, the Daltons purchased property in Anne Arundel county, Maryland (Annapolis) and built a modest mansion on Chesapeake Bay. Their original home in Herndon, Virginia was donated to a local historical society and is now part of a community college campus. It houses a library and area museum of history (natural and local).

The property’s name is Amberleigh.

The West Family
The Wests settled in Maryland when Colonel Philip West was assigned to command a substantial garrison in the 1700s. At his retirement, Colonel West was given a generous land grant in what is now Potomac, Maryland. The majority of the estate, including the mansion, still belongs to the West family.

By the mid-1800s, the Wests were one of the wealthiest families in New England and considered political royalty in Washington, D.C. Although a long held goal of the Wests, they have never made it to the White House, however, many members of the family and extended family have had distinguished careers in Congress.
