Book: James City Co: Keystone of the Commonwealth

John Walker, who owned a substantial amount of land in western JCC at the close of the 18th century, left his acreage on Old Forge Road to Robert Walker, who lived upon the property with his wife, Elizabeth. During the mid-1820's the Walker heirs sold the family farm to Dr. Michael S. Warren, who moved there and called the farm "Warrenton". Dr. Warren constructed a new building upon his property and in 1840 erected a second one of comparable value. In 1845 he commenced paying taxes upon a mill and during the early 1850's the value of the buildings on his farm rose dramatically. It may have been then that he built the large frame dwelling now known as Warrenton. By that date, Dr. Warren was in possession of the Chickahominy Shipyard tract and two other farms in the neighborhood. At his death in the early 1850's, his widow (the former Elizabeth B. Allen) inherited life-rights to Warrenton, which she farmed with slave labor. After her death in the late 1880's, her son and daughter became embroiled in a legal dispute that made its way to the state supreme court. (Found in James City Co Land Tax Lists 1782-1888; Channing M. Hall, An Abstract of Title for Mr. Charles N. Dozier, 1944.)

Hickory Neck School
In 1807 the Overseers of the Poor for New Kent Co received permission to dispose of the glebe of the defunct Blisland Parish, which territory lay in both James City and New Kent counties. Six James City Co men were named trustees of the Hickory Neck School Society: Archer Hankins, Michael S. Warren, Richardson Henley, John E. Brown Jr., Thurston James and Robert Morris.
