To the right, just beyond this narrow marsh, lay the 80-acre "Island House" tract which was "planted and seated" prior to 1619 by Richard Kingsmill, "ancient planter," burgess, and man of property and affairs. His daughter, Elizabeth, and her husband, Nathaniel Bacon, later sold it to Nicholas Meriwether, and ancestor of Meriwether Lewis, one of our great western explorers.
