Gloucester Co. VA Images of Wills and Estates


Rosewell Plantation

Gloucester County, Virginia Court House Records

Pictured is the Walter Reed home in Gloucester, Virginia and the Rosewell Plantation. Gloucester County was created in 1651 but Indian activity dominated the scene. The fortress of Chief Powhatan was located on the north side of the river in Gloucester and Powhatan had built his home Werowocomoco on land that is now in Gloucester County. This location is where Princess Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powatan, saved Captain John Smith's life, earning both of them prominent places in our nation's history books. Apparently an order was given in the colony to erect brick courthouses because there is a menton the Middlesex County Ordewrs (1680-94) that the Gloucester court-house building was of brick and that the Middlesex Court House should be at least of equal goodness and dimensions " as ye brick court-house lately built in Gloucester County."
