almodington.jpgAlmodington Advertisement0 viewsAlmodington is an estate on Deal Island Road in the Manokin Historic District at the mouth of the Manokin River. It is the oldest house in that area, having been built by Col. Arnold Elzey in 1745. It is believed that the original 1,000-acre tract upon which Almodington would come to sit was granted to John Elzey by the king himself. Elzey was a British loyalist empowered to administer to new settlers the oath of allegiance to the British crown.

sudlersconclusion.jpgSudler's Conclusion1 viewsThe exact age is not known, but historians generally agree that this home was built between 1700-1725, with a 2-story addition in 1840. It is one of the oldest houses still standing on the Lower Eastern Shore. Sudler's Conclusion was the name Thomas Seon Sudler attached to the 419 acres on Back Creek near Manokin that he had resurveyed under one name in 1789 from 5 tracts which had been patented as early as 1665. His grandfather, Thomas Seon, assembled extensive holdings between Back Creek and the Annemessex River beginning with the purchase of a 100-acre portion of Barnaby's Lott in 1747. It is presumed that this home was already standing on the land at that time.Nov 28, 2014
