This phase I survey presents findings from three sites on the Marshview property (bordered by Marshview Drive and Salt Point neighborhood to the west, Norfolk Avenue and multi-family developments to the north, Shadowlawn neighborhood (east), and Owls Creek/Lake Rudee (south). Site 44VB0363 is likely a colonial era homestead. Site 44VB0364, a farmstead from about 1850-1950, was farmed by William T. Gornto and later by James and Mary Grimstead, and finally by Fred J. Barcroft. Site 44VB0365 functioned as a farmstead ca. 1830-ca. 1950. Gideon Whitehurst built the farm that was in full operation in 1833. Subsequently the property was owned successively by Jeremiah Woodhouse, Sr.; Jeremiah Woodhouse, Jr.; and the Grimstead family. (adapted from Management Summary, p. iii-iv)

Phase II archaeological investigation of 44VB0363 at Marshview Park, Virginia Beach, Virginia by Matthew R Laird( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A 2011 Phase I survey for the Virginia Beach Department of Parks & Recreation revealed a concentration of historic artifacts that suggested that this site had been a colonial era (1690-1750) era homestead. This Phase II survey of the site, near a tributary of Lake Rudee, indicated that "the site most likely was occupied during the last quarter of the eighteenth century and into the first years of the nineteenth century. Documentary research indicated that this occupation coincided with the ownership of prominent Princess Anne County planter and Revolutionary War veteran Thomas Reynolds Walker, his son Thomas Walker, and granddaughter Sarah Walker Braithwaite. Since none of the Walkers evidently lived at this location, the site most likely was occupied by one or more tenant farmer families, or perhaps even by some of the enslaved African Americans held by the Walker family....[I]t appears most likely that the site included a small and simple frame dwelling with a brick hearth and possibly a brick chimney, the type of unexceptional dwelling which the vast majority of Princess Anne County residents, free or enslaved, would have called home during the decades following the American Revolution." (excerpted from Abstract and Introduction)

Archaeological investigation of the Lynnhaven House, site 44VB0062, Virginia Beach, Virginia by Sean P Romo( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Reports the results of archaeological testing November 11-21, 2014. The James River Institute for Archaeology excavated 5 test units around the foundation of the ca. 1725 Lynnhaven House. The testing was part of a larger initiative to waterproof and reinforce the foundation, but every test unit showed modern disturbance, chiefly attributable to an earlier project. As a result, all features, including builder's trench, within 3' of the Lynnhaven House, have been completely obliterated. Although historical artifacts were recovered, a single posthole was the only historic feature found. (Adapted from Abstract, p. iii)
