HistoryEdit

Castle

Sint-Markstad

Carrington old town

The Old Town

Carrington was originally founded in 1368 as San Marcos, but under the Dutch took on the name Sint-Markstad. The city was built along the walls of the Markstad Castle, built from 1361 to 1377. Under the Aragonese, San Marcos thrived as a market town. In 1385, Venetian troops forcibly occupied the town, creating resentment among the local populations. In 1407, peasants near Sint-Markstad refused to work for their Venetian masters and began the first act of defiance against them, leading to fierce reprisals. This act would spark a wave of minor protests and revolts that would lead to the War of Independence in 1427. During the war, local resistance to the Venetians resulted in a large unit of men being sent to the town, which defeated a small force of armed locals and burnt many houses.

Following the end of the war, Sint-Markstad would become a large market town, with people from the region coming to the Great market to buy and sell their produce and wares. Around the house some wealthy families like the Murais built large country houses such as Villa Murais and Philips House.

The townspeople took the first action of the Civil War in 1663, raiding the town arsenal. The following day, the king sent an force of 800 men to recover the town. Mayor Nicolas Haas organized the defense, where 214 men and 31 women took arms against the king. The battle was a massacre, and royalist troops killed 185 armed citizens, and 68 unarmed ones.

After James Carrington's Invasion of Brunant in 1784, he renamed the city after himself, and the name has stayed.
