The "Trustees to the Portland of York Towne" deeded this corner lot to Charles Cox, "Inholder" and "Planter" in 1706. Cox probably built the house pictured here before selling the property in 1729 to Thomas Nelson, in whose family it remained for the next seventy-five years. The painting is based on photographs of the twenty-by-forty-foot "dwelling and store," with smokehouse behind, made before it was destroyed a half-century ago.
