Jamestown: 1623

During the administration of Governor Wyatt in the colony, the title to plats of ground in the Corporation of Jamestown reveal the different ownerships in the town itself.  The residence of Governor Yeardley stood in the most extensive lot, the area within his enclosure  being seven acres. There were four acres in the lot of Captain Roger Smith. The lot of Ralph Warnet, a prominent merchant, was one and half acres. The immediate neighbors of Warnet were George Meneie, Richard Stevens and John Chew, merchants.
