An 18th century house exists and the current residents look for buried treasure under an old tombstone marked with an X.

Towards the end of his six years' apprenticeship, in 1747, he eloped with 'one of the nine Miss Browns who had twenty-seven husbands between them.' Settling in Falmouth the following year, he acquired land and built this stately house. Dr. Wallace's practice soon extended into Culpeper, Fauquier, and Loudoun Counties. In December 1799, former President Washington developed a severe cold and sore throat. As Washington's condition declined, Dr. Craik called upon fellow physicians Elisha Dick and Gustavus Brown for help. Washington's doctors bled, blistered, and purged him. He did not respond to treatment and died on 14 December. Although the treatment of Washington was later condemned as hastening his death, it was in keeping with accepted medical practices of the time.

[2722] Robert Bruce d.1295 5th Lord Annandale and grandfather of the future King On 18 March 1286, King Alexander III, aged 44 years lost his escorts on a stormy night on his way along the sea cliffs from Edinburgh to Kinghorn (Fife), a journey he had taking against the advice of his aids, to meet up with his young wife. The following morning he was eventually found dead on the shore having broken his neck on falling from his horse. Although his was a time of settled political establishment the Bruces’ despite their increasing landed power and status in Scotland, were not part of this establishment. The noble families, who had worked with Alexander III since 1260, included the Comyns , Morays, Stewarts, Frasers, Macdougalls, Grahams, Balliols and Mowbrays. Surprisingly, the Bruces played a more prominent role in English rather than Scottish politics, holding responsibilities such as governorship of Carlisle Castle , 1267-8, and the sherriffdom of Cumberland 1283-5. Alexander III's only heir to the throne was his three-year-old granddaughter, Margaret the Maid of Norway. Six guardians representing the political establishment therefore, assumed political leadership. The guardians were dominated by three from the Comyn family and their ally William Fraser of St Andrews. The only link the Bruces had with this political leadership was the baron, James Stewart, via an alliance through marriage. The Bruces, however, strongly believed that they had a rightful claim to the Scottish throne in that King Alexander II of Scotland had apparently recognised Robert Bruce (d.1295), the grandfather of the future king, as his successor back in 1238. The Comyns who were now sitting guardians had other ideas. The Comyns were the most powerful Scottish family of the day. Their military and political power in northern Scotland was virtually vice-regal and was marked by a series of castles controlling most of the main routes and passes in northern Scotland. In 1286, their power was unassailable but the Bruces’ own influence in the south-west meant that it was in this area that the Bruce challenge to the Comyns’ control over Scottish government first took place. The problem facing the Bruces was how could they forward their claim to the throne when they were excluded from the Guardianship, a grouping that was in the key position to implement the succession and influence the discussion over an heir presumptive? The Comyns were allied through marriage to the Balliol family, who also had strong claims to the Scottish throne because of their own royal links. On 2nd April 1286, Robert Bruce (d1295) put forward his family's claim. The Balliols contested it and the Bruces launched attacks in southwest Scotland on the Balliol castle of Buittle, and the royal castles of Wigtown and Dumfries. In September, in further defiance of the committee and the Scottish government Robert Bruce (d1295) made a pact, the Turnberry Bond, with his son, Robert Bruce, Earl of Carrick, and associates at Turnberry. Effectively a state of civil war now existed within Scotland. The Comyns reinforced their position in the southwest and strengthened the royal castles of Ayr, Dumfries, Wigtown, Jedburgh, Edinburgh and Stirling. In 1288 the Guardians sent for advice and assistance from Edward I in France. On Edward I's return from France in 1289 he brokered a marriage between his son and Alexander III's daughter, Margaret the young Maid of Norway and at the same time effected a conciliation between Bruce and the representatives of the Scottish government. Peace was not to last as the young ‘Queen’ Margaret died suddenly in Orkney in September 1290, on her way from Norway to Scotland, and new political instability ensued. Robert Bruce (d1295) gathered a large armed force at Perth causing William Fraser, Bishop of St Andrews, to call for assistance from Edward I. While meeting with Edward I, William took the opportunity to recommend John Balliol, brother-in-law of John Comyn of Badenoch, as the best candidate to the throne. Robert Bruce again contested this and in June 1291 Edward came to Norham as overlord to make a judgement on the succession. This lawsuit, which came to be known as the ‘Great Cause’ in the eighteenth century, began in August 1291. Of the thirteen candidates making a claim to the Scottish throne, the two most serious were John Balliol and Robert Bruce (d1295). The final decision of the court on 17 November 1292 went in favour of John Balliol. Despite the use of military and legal means to strengthen their political position between 1286 and 1292, the Bruces had failed to dislodge the Comyns. However, on 7 November 1292, as the court decided in favour of Balliol, Robert Bruce the elder resigned his claim to his son and heir and in turn to his heirs, and then two days later his son, Robert Bruce, Earl of Carrick, surrendered his earldom to his 18 year old son and heir; Robert (the future King). This quick thinking and prompt action ensured that the Bruces’ claim to the throne remained! John Balliol was crowned King of the Scots on St Andrew's Day, 30 November 1292. Both elder Bruces, the future king's father and grandfather, refused to do homage to Balliol, for the young Robert, however, homage was a necessity to enable him to be confirmed as Earl of Carrick.
