Brooklyn's third-oldest park is named for Charles Carroll (1737-1832), an American Revolutionary leader and signer of the Declaration of Independence, for whom Carroll Street is also named. He served in the Continental Congress from 1776-78 and represented Maryland in the Senate from 1789-92. Carroll, whose family emigrated to the Maryland colony from Ireland, is the only Roman Catholic to have signed the Declaration of Independence.
