According to a chart of Historic Homes by Balch Library:
Property Name: The Hill built in 1798 in Aldie
Property Name: Noland House built in 1905 at Point of Rocks, Md
From “Loudoun Discovered, Leesburg, Volume 2” by Scheel:
To the north-south traveler in colonial America, Noland’s Ferry was about as well known as the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is today. At the ferry, from the mid 1750s until the first Point of Rocks bridge was built in 1852, the Carolina Road crossed the Potomac. This road was the main north-south thoroughfare until the 1790s.
Philip Noland gave the ferry its name. He made his area appearance in 1724—his name spelled “Knowland” at the time—when he received 687 acres adjacent to Daniel McCarty’s Sugarlands tract. By 1740, he had married Elizabeth Awbrey, daughter of Francis, and was living near today’s Leesburg on “that tract of land lying upon Tuskarora which I [Francis Awbrey] bought of George Slayer.” By 1748 however, Mr. Noland and bride were living on other Awbrey lands, opposite Maryland’s Tuscarora Creek.
The year after the capital was built, Philip Noland died. His will was proved September 8, 1794. From it, we learn that two of his daugh¬ters, Elizabeth and Molly Ann, had married into the Luckett family. Another dynasty had begun. In 1814, Thomas Noland’s youngest son, Lloyd, married Anne Whiting Powell, daughter of Burr Powell of Middleburg. Thus were born the Nolands of the Hunt Country.
