Indian Banks – Circa 1699 https://www.karinandrewsestates.com/ListingDetails/2494-Simonson-RD-Richmond-County-VA-22460/10256246/
Standing the test of time, Indian Banks circa 1699 and 1728 has witnessed over 300 years of lives lived, lost and the founding of our nation. An icon on Virginia’s Northern Neck, Indian Banks is situated near the confluence of Lancaster and Morattico Creeks near the site of one of the Indian villages shown on Captain John Smith’s 1609 map of Virginia. In August 1608, Captain John Smith was entertained by the Moraughtacund Indians at their principal village on the Northern Neck near present day Indian Banks. Indian Bank’s site was patented in 1652 by Thomas Glasscock, who received 600 acres of land on Morattico Creek in return for the surrender of a grant of 200 acres on Piankatank River, which he had received upon his emigration to America in 1643. Records of the Indian Banks house run back to 1728, when Captain William Glasscock married Ester Ball (A cousin of George Washington on his Mother’s side) and took up residence there. One of the bricks bears the inscribed initials “G.W.” with a Masonic Symbol. This truly captivating Manor House is distinctly English in its Architecture; featuring Jacobean, Georgian and Queen-Ann elements. A rare Scrolled Soffit / Jack Arch above the Main Entrance is one of only two known examples in Virginia.
