History of Chaptico MarylandChaptico Maryland

History of Chaptico Maryland The name Chaptico is not one you hear often; it is believed to be Algonquian for “big broad river it is.” It is said to be a phrase derived from the Chaptico Tribe of natives that lived in the area. The tribe was known for its friendly people. The town became a large shipping point on the Wicomico River until earth shifted and caused the river to silt up in the 1800s. It is said that the damage was caused by the British in 1813 as a result of events during the War of 1812 when they pretty much demolished the town as it stood at the time.

Deep Falls is another old house in Chaptico, It has a rich history dating back to its beginnings as a one-story, four-room frame house reportedly constructed in 1745. Over the years, the house underwent extensive remodeling, notably during the late 18th century and again in the mid-19th century. Remarkably, Deep Falls has remained in the ownership of the Thomas family throughout its existence, descendants of notable figures such as Governor James Thomas of Maryland and the renowned Civil War spy Richard Thomas, also known as Zarvona. Today, the property continues to be owned by the Thomas family, preserving its legacy for future generations.
