Here at a cedar tree was the western limit of the fifty acres constituting the original town of Norfolk. The land was bought in 1682 as a port for lower Norfolk County from Nicholas Wise, Jr. for "tenn thousand pounds of tobacco and caske." It was deeded to Capt. Wm. Robinson and Lt. Col. Anthony Lawson as Feoffees in Trust for the county.
