The Judge Lynn Chapter was organized February 22, 1908, by the Regent, Mrs. Bertha M. Robbins, at her home, 1622 P Street, NW.
Mrs. Donald McLean, President General, honored the new chapter by giving it the name of her revolutionary ancestor, Judge David Lynn, who was one of THE TWELVE IMMORTAL JUDGES OF MARYLAND.
Judge Lynn held his commission under King George of England and was one of the twelve judges who, on 23 Nov 1765, decided that before the English Stamp Act would be recognized by the Maryland Courts, the Courts must be officially notified of the passage of that Act. In memory of this courageous stand, an act of treason against the English Crown, and said to be one of the first of the various actions against England which resulted in the revolt of the Colonists, a large bronze tablet was erected in the Courthouse at Frederick, MD by the DAR in 1904.
November 23 was designated as Repudiation Day by the Maryland General Assembly and is a legal bank half-holiday in Frederick County.
Judge Lynn Chapter celebrated its Centennial in February 2008 at Mount Vernon Inn. Among the honored guests were three direct descendants of Judge David Lynn.
