Another instance of wanton destruction occurred at " Bald Eagles," one of the Waring places, and which has its name from the eagles' nests built for generations in the old trees on the plantation. The owner had never allowed them to be disturbed, but when the last proprietor died, some of the more turbulent sort essayed to break the injunction. One of them, in coming down from the tree, after the total destruction of the nest, fell and broke his enterprising neck. Another of the band was murdered by one of his boon companions not long afterward.

Note:  Per Across the Years in PGC, Col. John Henry Waring, youngest son of John Waring Jr and his wife Elizabeth Margaret Bowie changed the names of the 1300 acres on the Patuxent River south of Nottingham known as Marsham's Rest to:  Bald Eagle.
