[Once the site of a Virginia Spa resort in the early 1800's, Private Hills Country Club has had a long and colorful place in Virginia History. The land was originally granted to Colonel Edward Barrow in 1717, by The Right Honorable Katherine Lady Fairfax, as 300 acres "upon both sides of a run called North Run and a field where the Indian Towne formerly stood." Later Captain Hancock Lee built a lodge near the Spring and subsequently, his son and a business partner bought additional land totaling 3000 acres. In the mid 1830's, with its long history of acclaim for the waters, two large hotels and a number of cottages were built to accommodate nearly a thousand guests. The spa was solace to many renown guests, including Presidents Madison and Monroe who owned cottages, in addition to Chief Justice John Marshall, President Martin Van Buren, and Mrs. Henry Clay who all visited The Springs. http://series4.privatehills.com/default.aspx?p=DynamicModule&PageId=205721&ssid=36844&vnf=1]

[“Edward1 Mozingo, born say 1641, was a "Negro man" whose apprenticeship to Colonel John Walker was completed on 5 October 1672 [McIlwaine, Minutes of the Council, 316]. He was a tenant on Andrew Boyer's land in Old Rappahannock County in March 1680/1. In 1683 the Old Rappahannock County court granted him judgment against Rees Evans for three barrels of Indian corn and ordered him and his wife Margaret to post security for their good behavior towards Colonel John Stone [D&W 6:134-5; Orders 1683-6, 30, 166-7]. Edward‘s 30 July 1711 Richmond County will was proved 7 May 1712. He left two guns to his son Edward and divided his land and property among his wife Margaret and sons Edward and John who he also named as executors. Edward BARROW was a witness to the will and returned an inventory of the estate” [Wills & Inventories 1709-17, 75-6, 87 http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Moore_Murrow.htm].

[Thomas1 Gowen (Michael1), born say 1660, was living in Westmoreland County between 1693 and 1702 when he was involved in several minor court cases, both as defendant and plaintiff, for debts. In 1703 he provided security of 2,000 pounds of tobacco for Chapman Dark that he would return to the county after travelling to Maryland to get testimony that he was a free man. On 1 March 1704/5 the court ordered him to pay Edward Barrow 1,200 pounds of tobacco which Thomas lost to him in a horse race [Orders 1690-98, 90, 244a, 250a; 1698-1705, 33, 39a, 56a, 109, 174, 190a, 190, 238a, 254a]. He was called Thomas Goin of Westmoreland County on 8 June 1707 when he was granted 653 acres in Stafford County below the falls of the Potomac River. This land was adjoining Robert Alexander's land according to a 29 May 1739 Prince William County deed [Gray, Virginia Northern Neck Land Grants, 39, 125]. In an 8 May 1767 land dispute a seventy-year-old deponent, Charles Griffith, related a conversation which he had with Major Robert Alexander forty-three years previously in 1724. Major Robert Alexander, who owned land adjoining the Gowens, supposedly said of them, http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Gibson_Gowen.htm]

[“7 May 1664 Deed: George Blow and wife Margritt to Rowland Hudson & William Hancock, consideration and acreage not noted, “on the east or southeast side of a branch of the Blackwater swamp beginning right att the joining of Joh. Benoms marked trees & bound southerly or west southerly on the maine swamp where the bridge is belong to Mr. Tho. Warrens carte path & northerdly or northeast on the side of the swamp called the bay tree swamp…” Signed: George Blow, Margritt (x) Blow. Witness: Jane (x) Halle [?] George Carter. Acknowledged by George and Margritt Blow on 1 November 1664. [Surry County Deed Book 1, p246]

This parcel is the part of the 1663 patent that lay east of Green Swamp – about 150a. according to later deeds for this land. After these two deeds, George Blow still owns about half the patent. The parcel sold to Rowland Hudson and William Hancock appears from subsequent deeds to have been 150 acres. Hudson bought Hancock’s share, then died and his only child Judah inherited. Judah and her husband, William Lyles, sold the land to John Smith, who then sold it in 1680 to Thomas Barrow. When George Blow Jr. married Thomas Barrow’s widow in 1684, he thus regained control over a part of the 1663 patent that had been out of the family for two decades.

17 May 1680 Deed: John Smith and wife Mary Smith of Lawnes Creek Parish to Thomas Barrow, 150a on Green Swamp, formerly belonging to William & Judah Lyles.. bordering land of Francis Mason and land of John Bynam. Witness: Nich. Smith, Wm. Seward [Surry County Deed Book 2, p259]


This land, as mentioned above, was the same parcel that George Blow Sr. had sold in 1664 to Rowland Hudson and William Hancock. On 27 April 1667 Hancock sold his share to Hudson. On 27 Feb 1679/80 William Lyle and his wife Judah (the only heir of Rowland Hudson) sold this land to John Smith, describing it as the land Hancock & Hudson had bought from George and Margaret Blow. Now three months later, John Smith is selling the land to the future wife of George Blow Jr. When Thomas Barrow dies in 1684 and George Blow Jr. gains control of this land, it will be back in the family after a twenty-year interval. This is Thomas Barrow’s first appearance in Surry, and he will appear on the tithables for 1680-1684.

3 Mar 1684/5 Geo. Blow granted administration on the estate of Tho. Barrow decd, with Wm. Newsum and Samll. Thompson his securities. Appraisers of the estate appointed by the court. [Surry County Orders 1671-1691, p476] Eliz. wife to Geo. Blow appeareing in cort & making oath to the inventory of the estate of Tho. Barrow, it is admitted to record. [Surry County Orders 1671-1691, p477]

This is quick work on George’s part. Thomas Barrow was still alive only four months earlier, on 4 November 1684, when he and Elizabeth both acknowledged a sale of land in court [Ibid., p462] The next record for him is the one above, by which time George Blow has already married the widow. She must have been older than George Blow if she had a ten year old son.

The land that Thomas Barrow had owned was part of George Blow Sr.’s 1663 patent. George Blow Sr. had sold part of it to Rowland Hudson and William Hancock. Hancock sold out to Hudson, and Hudson’s only child Judah married William Lyle. William and Judah Lyle sold the land to John Smith, who then sold it to Thomas Barrow in 1680.

The earliest reference in Surry to anyone named Barrow is that land purchase of 150a. by Thomas Barrow on 17 May 1680 from John and Mary Smith [see above]. Thomas Barrow then appears as a single tithable in Lawnes Creek parish for 1680, 1681, 1682, 1683, and 1684. At the time of his death he had two young sons, Edward (born c1675) and Thomas Jr. (born c1679) who later appear in the tithables lists.

^ 6 Jul 1686 Two Suits Dismissed: Hen. Norton vs. Geo. Blow, and Geo Blow vs. Hen. Norton. [Surry County Orders 1671-1691, p524]

Henry Norton was the person to whom Thomas Barrow had sold his land just prior to his death. George Blow is suing as the administrator of Thomas Barrow [see later record]. He will assign his case to William Edwards, who will eventually obtain a judgment against Henry Norton.

[Is this Thomas Barecraft the son of Thomas Barecroft who m. Mary, widow of Henry Metcalfe? Or is this Thomas Barecroft, Sr. who married Mary____ Metcalfe? Is Elizabeth Pew the wife of George Pew or is the later George Pew found with William Metcalfe, her son?]


[Is this the will of Thomas Barecroft who married Mary, the widow of Henry Medcalfe (1)? Or is this his son or relative? Mary must have died earlier as she is not listed in his will. I have been unable to locate her will. Or she and Thomas died in England (see VA 1600s file.) I believe that Winnefred Gill must have been her daughter by Wm. Metcalfe as there is a unknown Metcalf Gill, probably Winnefred’s son.)[Is Winneford Metcalf listed in Henrico Co. the same Winefred Gill?]

[MANGORITE (or Mangorike) was a farm in Richmond County "in the vicinity of present Downing Bridge spanning the Rappahannock and present-day Little Carter Creek. . . . It consisted of 1,800 acres belonging to Colonel Moore Fauntleroy in the seventeenth century." Robert Carter bequeathed it to Landon Carter. (Miller, Place-Names . . ., p. 93.; and Greene, , 5.)


[The most distinguished resident of Naylors, however, was Moore Fauntleroy who came to the Northern Neck about 1650 during the Cavalier migration from England. At first, he lived in Lancaster County (as did Edward Eidson), which was formed from Northumberland County in 1751. In fact, the first court in Lancaster County was held in his home in 1652. Elizabeth Combs Pierce in the Northern Neck Historical Magazine in December 1951 wrote "Before the first courthouse was built, Court was held in the home of the justices and the first recorded session was held in the home of Col. Moore Fauntleroy on January 1st."


In April 1651, Fauntleroy purchased from the Rappahannock Indians a tract of land that extended from the Rappahannock River to the Potomac and from Rappahannock Creek (now Cat Point Creek) to Marattico Creek (now Morattico), virtually all of the present-day Richmond County. The agreement was signed by Accopatough, king of the Rappahannock Indians. He, Fauntleroy, settled on this property and eventually built a mansion on the bluff above the river where the present Naylors Beach is. After Fauntleroy settled at Naylors, a wharf was established, and from 1682-1778, Southin's Ferry ran between Naylors Point (then called Cat Point) and a place called Hobbes Hole Daingerfield Landing. Moore Fauntleroy's son, William, later sold some land to William Tayloe whose son John lived in what was known as "Old House" which had been built in 1683. John Taylor, who succeeded his father on County Court in 1710, occasionally held Court sessions there. He built Mount Airy between 1748 and 1758. http://www.imt.net/~gedison/eidson/pafg01.htm]


[At 2.4 m. on US 36o is a junction with State 204; R. here 4.7 m. to County 636 and L. to NAYLOR'S HOLE, 6.8 m., now a wharf and a few houses but once a shipping point for the ancestral seat of the Fauntleroy family. Colonel Moore Fauntleroy settled here in 1651. During a later period, Naylor's Hole was the home of Elizabeth Fauntleroy, George Washington's mysterious 'Lowland Beauty,' who turned Washington down on account of the smallpox scars on his f ace. In 1752, Washington wrote her father, Colonel William Fauntleroy: 'I purpose . . . to wait on Miss Betsy, in hopes of a revocation of the former cruel sentence and see if I can meet with any alteration in my favor.' US 360 crosses the Rappahannock River on the Downing Bridge, erected in 1927 to TAPPAHANNOCK, 6.4 m. (427 POP.)
