Cappahosic Marker, Q-10-b

Here is Cappahosic, where a ferry was established early in the eighteenth century. On the old charts, this Indian district lay between Werowocomoco and Timberneck Creek. Powhatan is said to have offered it to Capt. John Smith for "two great guns and a grindstone". John Stubbs patented the Cappahosic tract in 1652 and 1702 and a few years later built this the "Cappahosic House", which has clipped gables and inside chimneys with eight unique corner fireplaces.
