      Col. George Glascock,, born Abt. 1675 is named in 1677 Will of Geo.
      Nichols VA; died Abt. 1714 in Will Jan 20, 1713/14 at Indian Banks,

      October 21 - November 21, 1683 in Richmond Co, VA; died October 25,

      Notes for Col. George Glascock:

      Million Downman b.21 Oct 1683 VA d.25 Oct 1750 VA
      Resided at Rapahannock River, Va

      "In 1699 (the year that the capitol was moved from Jamestown to
      Williamsburg
      and also the year that the pirate Captain Kidd, sailed
      into the Chesapeake) Col. George presumably built 'Indian Banks',
      which was near the home of Mary Ball Washington, mother of George
      Washington.
      The Glasscock Plantation was named 'Indian Banks' because it was a
      part of the land where the Moraughtacund Indians lived when white men
      first settled at Jamestown in 1607. These Indians were one of 30 or
      more tribes in the Algonquian nation ruled by Powhatan, the father of
      Pocahontas, who did so much to help the Jamestown settlers in their
      first years of struggle and who so dramatically saved the life of John
      Smith. This tribe's principle town was at the site of Glasscock's
      plantation at 'Indian Banks'.
      Col. George married Million Downman, the granddaughter of a prominent
      Virginia planter Col. Raleigh Travers who patented 300 acres in
      Rapahannock Co. in 1653 and over 3,000 acres in Westmoreland Co. by
      1663. Apparently with the inheritance of the bulk of the estate of his
      grandfather Nichols, land from his father Thomas, and maybe some of
      his wife's acquisitions, Col. George moved into the society of the
      Virginia 'Gentry'. He is listed as a 'Merchant living at Rapahannock
      River, Virginia'. Although the records were destroyed by fire, it
      appears the Col. George and his family lived at 'Indian Banks' after
      1699 and that his family had much to do with the 'aristocracy' of the
      Old Dominion.
      Indian Banks "is constructed of remarkable well preserved red brick
      and is L-shaped wit broad chimneys rising out of either end of a high
      gabled roof. The lower part of the exterior walls is 26 inches thick,
      tapering to 18 inches at the top. Over the front porch is a
      serpentine brick decoration which a member of the national Geodetic
      survey who studied and photographed the house has said he has seen
      duplicated only once in the United States - and that in New England.
      The timber, which is hand hewn white oak, is dovetailed at the joints
      and held together at other places by blacksmith nails. Clay packed in
      open spaces in the interior walls gives excellent insulation and
      air-conditioning. The plank floors are six inches wide. The house
      contains many-paneled doors, HL hinges (standin for "Holy Lord" to
      drive ghosts away from the doors), original locks, a curved chimney in
      the main living room, built-in window seats like those in the nearby
      famous 'Sabine Hall' of the Carter family, 18-pane windows, a five
      sided dining room and living room, attractive mantels in every room,
      and black iron chandeliers. Upstairs are two doors only four feet
      high, which lead to small rooms for powdering wigs. Outbuildings
      included slaves' quarters, a barn, a carriage shed and a well house.
      Foundations of the old kitchen, ice house and well still remain.
      'Indian Banks' remained a center of Glascock activity for about a
      hundred and thirty years until 1822 when it was sold outside the
      Glascock family.
      About 4 1/2 miles east of Indian Banks stands 'Epping Forest' where
      Mary Ball, the mother of George Washington, was born. Mary was
      called the 'Rose of Epping Forest' and "The Reigning Belle of the
      Northern Neck". She became orphaned by age 13 and was raised by Capt.
      George Eskridge, her guardian. Because of her respect for Capt.
      George, Mary named her son George.
      Mary Ball's half brother, Joseph Ball, a wealthy London Barrister, was
      interested in genealogy and wrote 'A History of the Ball family from a
      Downman MS.' This document indicates that there were many other
      Ball-Downman marriages in England, prior to the coming of these
      families to Virginia, where there were a number of subsequent
      Ball-Downman-Glascock marriages and Million Downman married Col.
      George Glascock c' 1700." (Source: The Glas(s)cock--Saga, by
      Lawrence A. Glassco)

      Indian Banks may be found in Farnham, not far from the Farnham Parish,
      about 100-200 yards north of Simonson.
      What is now Lancaster Creek was called Morattico Creek in the late
      1600's.
