About Millville, Delaware

Historians may one day devote whole chapters to Millville. But at least in the time since the town was first established, some 100 years ago, there’s been little written about its origins specifically.

However, there are some very local and well-written histories which do, in illuminating the early days of the Baltimore Hundred (southeastern Sussex), cast many glancing rays upon the area where Millville would one day rise.

What record does exist suggests the community came together very slowly over time. Although Millville didn’t formally organize until early in the 20th century, quite a few local families can probably trace their ancestries hundreds of years earlier. Gordon Wood Sr., who grew up in Millville, traced dozens of local genealogies in preparing his “Letters to the Little Ones” family history. And in doing so, he made this observation: many of the names appearing in the 1780 Census for the Baltimore Hundred were still in local evidence years after the town’s establishment. Among the 30 students of Wood’s graduating class of 1953 from Lord Baltimore School, fully 25 students still bore surnames mentioned in 1780, or their mothers did, he pointed out.

Delaware was just a newborn in 1780 — it had taken the Calverts of Maryland and the Penns of Pennsylvania nearly 100 years of contentious, and sometimes violent, dispute to settle the borders. At one point, in 1737, England’s King George II had so despaired of the dueling property owners that he asked: “That they do not make grants of any part of the lands in contest … nor any part of the three lower counties, commonly called New Castle, Kent and Sussex, nor permit any person to settle there, or even to attempt to make a settlement thereon, till His Majesty’s pleasure shall be further signified.” (From Thomas Scharf’s “History of Delaware, 1609-1888”) Not that the area was all that appealing anyway. “When the first settlers had arrived, marshes and swamps covered much of the eastern portion of the present-day hundred (Baltimore Hundred), and early plantations were largely confined to high ground in the vicinity of the present towns of Ocean View, Millville and Clarksville,” Richard Carter wrote, in his “History of Sussex County.”

Some of the local farmers held slaves in those days, but “the economic viability of slavery … had diminished in this area before the (Civil) War,” Wood wrote. “By 1850, the U.S. Census reported almost 50 percent more free ‘colored’ males than slaves in Baltimore Hundred — 237 to 162.” When war came, the men of the Baltimore Hundred volunteered for the Union. Following Scharf’s history into the Civil War, Wood focused on Company D of the Sixth Regiment, Delaware Volunteer Infantry, and he noted many local names on Company D’s roster: “Lynch, West, Williams, Bennett, Bunting, Derickson, Evans, Hickman, Hudson, Megee, Murray, Rickards and Wilgus. Clearly, this company was recruited from residents of Baltimore Hundred and the surrounding area,” Wood pointed out.

They would serve a relatively short, but bitter tour, primarily as guards at Fort Delaware, “a dreaded prison for Confederate soldiers,” Wood wrote. Thousands of prisoners succumbed to conditions and disease, and he suggested that guard duty may have been almost as bad as being a prisoner.

This atlas shows the Baltimore Hundred, pre-1700. “There is no argument against Lincoln’s freeing the slaves,” Wood continued. But he noted the problems that followed the Civil War — the Jim Crow laws that slowed local progress toward universal civil rights, and the widespread economic side effects. “Untrained and uneducated and generally without land, the former slaves were ill-equipped to get ahead,” he wrote. “The last third of the nineteenth century was a time of little economic development.”

But this was apparently affecting everyone in the Baltimore Hundred, black and white. Wood reviewed 40 year’s worth of Sussex County tax assessments, leading up to 1896, and noted very slow appreciation among the estates of the Baltimore Hundred’s farming families.
