The oldest brick house in Chesterfield County, and thought by some to be the oldest in Virginia, is located on the promontory between Swift Creek and Appomattox River, and is simply called Brick House.The peninsula on which it stands is sometimes referred to as "Conjuror's Neck," because an old Indian conjuror used to live there.
Brick House was built in 1685 by Richard Kennon, an English gentleman of wealth, whose family received large land grants in Virginia.Richard Kennon came to Virginia prior to 1670, and became a merchant of Bermuda Hundred; he also represented Henrico County in the House of Burgesses.
Richard Kennon, Jr.was also a member of the House of Burgesses.He married the daughter of Col. Robert Bolling, the emigrant, and his second wife, the former Anne Stith.
Richard's sister (Mary Kennon) was married to John Bolling, half-brother of Richard's wife - John was the son of Col. Robert Bolling and his first wife Jane Rolfe.They lived at Cobb's.
The Kennons and their descendants intermarried with many of the most distinguished families, the Blands, Randolphs, Tuckers, and others.
The social life of their families absorbed much of their leisure - music, dancing, cards, winters spent in Williamsburg, entertaining many distinguished visitors in their homes.
Brick House was damaged by fire in 1879.http://cgi.ebay.com/1957-OLD-VIRGINIA-HOUSES-archtecture-genealogy-gothic-2_W0QQitemZ4632026219QQcategoryZ378QQcmdZViewItemhttp://cgi.ebay.com/1957-OLD-VIRGINIA-HOUSES-archtecture-genealogy-gothic-2_W0QQitemZ4632026219QQcategoryZ378QQcmdZViewItem
