We have been long time residents of Hampton Roads our whole life. After selling our Yorktown home we went looking for a farm on the water.
We looked at Little England on a whim one day just for kicks. As soon as we pulled through the white gate, we were mesmerized. But Gloucester? We lived in this area years ago as newlyweds and thought this was never the place we would eventually settle.
Just walking the grounds you can feel the importance and place this home has in history.
Little England dates back to a 1651 land grant to the Perrin family by Governor Berkeley. Captain John Perrin built the house in 1716 with plans drawn by Christopher Wren.
Little England was used as a lookout for ships during the Battle of Yorktown, and as a hospital during the War of 1812 and a garrison during the Civil War.
58 acres positioned on the banks of the York River and Sarah Creek.
From 2012 on, Gloucester and Little England will have a special place in our family history. We take great honor and feel very privileged that God has entrusted us to the stewardship of this historical treasure.
Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will thank you forever and ever; praising your greatness from generation to generation.
