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
