Corotoman Marker, J-85

This place was three miles south. Little remains of the house. John Carter obtained patents for a large grant here before 1654, but the place is better known as the home of his son, Robert ("King") Carter. In April, 1814, the British, raiding in the Chesapeake region, pillaged the plantation.
