1760 - 1800

ID Number: I63013

  • RESIDENCE: of Fredericksburg, VA

Notes


"A Brief History of Federal Hill: This late Georgian style house with Federal details was built between 1792 and 1795 by Robert Brooke, governor of Virginia from 1794 to 1796. He purchased the 5.5-acre "meadow" tract from the estate of Alexander Dick in 1786, although he did not record the deed of purchase until October of 1792. Situated at the head of Allan Street, the acreage was considered a prime location. The orientation of the house at an angle to today's Hanover Street reflects the earlier development of Allan Town in the neighborhood.


Presumably the house was completed by January 1, 1795 for at that time Brooke mortgaged the property to his brother-in-law Fontaine Maury as collateral for the substantial loan of 1000. Married to Brooke's sister, Elizabeth Fontaine Maury was mayor of Fredericksburg in 1793.


In December 1794, Brooke was elected governor of Virginia, and he may have needed the loan to cover the expenses of his new state office and his relocation to Richmond. He borrowed again from Maury, the sum of 1250, in October of 1795. In 1797, still in debt to his brother-in-law for about 2240, he deeded Fontaine Maury the meadow property with its mansion for a nominal five shillings. Maury had his own substantial dwelling on the west side of Princess Anne Street between William and George Streets, so he let the meadow property with its mansion as rental income.


Brooke was elected to a second term as governor in 1795. He went on to become Grand Master of the Masonic Lodge of Virginia until 1797, and in 1798 he was elected Attorney General of the Commonwealth. Sadly, the promising Brooke died in 1800. He was honored by having Brooke County, now in West Virginia, named for him.


In 1801, the house was purchased by Thomas Reade Rootes, a local lawyer. It was Rootes who named the property "Federal Hill," presumably reflecting the then heated national debate between Federalists and Republicans. Rootes, an ardent believer in a strong central government, may also have been making a strong political statement, knowing that Robert Brooke had been Virginia's leading Republican or Anti-Federalist. (see ID 60359)


As originally constructed, Federal Hill has a central hall, five bays, and a double-pile floor plan, with the grand parlor extending the full length of the house. The house is noteworthy for its lavish interior woodwork, with paneled wainscoting, pilasters, cornices, and overmantels. The exposed brick chimney is a traditional method of construction, perhaps for reason of fire prevention. Today the chimney still bears scars from the Civil War. It is listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places." Src: http://www.federal-hill.com/House/history.htm.


"About 1795 Robert Brooke, governor of Virginia, built his home upon Federal Hill, which looks over Sandy Bottom to Marye's Heights, a thousand yards away. Early in this century, Governor Brooke being dead, Federal Hill became the property of the family Cobb, since of Georgia. Governor Cobb, of Georgia, and his brother, General Sylvanus Cobb, lived
there as boys. In the great battle a Federal battery was placed on the lawn of Federal Hill. General Sylvanus Cobb, for the first time since his boyhood, looked again upon his old home from the stone wall at the foot of Marye's heights. It was the last time he ever saw it, for a
cannon-ball from that battery tore him to pieces."


Brooke county Virginia now West Virginia: Formed from Ohio County in1796 or Created in 1797 from part of Ohio county and named in honor of Robert Brooke, Governor of Virginia from 1794 to 1796. county Seat: Wellsburg.
