Carrollton is a home rule-class city in—and the county seat of—Carroll County, Kentucky, United States, at the confluence of the Ohio and Kentucky rivers. The population was 3,938 at the 2010 census.
Carrollton and Carroll County were named in honor of the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence, Charles Carroll of Carrollton, Maryland. Charles Carroll was born in Annapolis, Maryland on September 19, 1737. Carroll’s grandfather, Charles Carroll the Settler, an Irish gentleman, emigrated from England to Maryland due to the persecution of Catholics on October 1688.
As a Roman Catholic, Carroll was barred from entering politics, practicing law, and voting in colonial America. He became a prominent spokesman against the government of England. He was commissioned in 1776 with Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Chase and his cousin the Reverend John Carroll to approach Canada to assist the thirteen colonies in their fight for Independence. Through the establishment of the United States, Carroll helped break the barrier that allowed Catholics the same rights as Protestants.
After the death of Jefferson and Adams on July 4, 1826, he was the only surviving Signer of the Declaration of Independence left in the country. Carroll died on November 14, 1832.
