Creating Warner Hall
In the winter of 1642, Augustine Warner I arrived in Jamestown with twelve new settlers for the Virginia Colonies. For bringing these colonists to the new frontier, Warner was given a “head Grant” of 600 acres in Gloucester, Virginia. He eventually expanded his acreage at his new plantation, Warner Hall, to several thousand acres prior to his death in 1674.
During his life he was Justice of York, Justice of Gloucester, and a member of the King’s Council in Virginia. Augustine Warner was the great, great grandfather of George Washington. Queen Elizabeth II is a direct descendant of Augustine Warner I through the Bowes-Lyon family and the Earl of Strathmore. Warner Hall is referred to as the home of the Queen’s American ancestors.

In 1999, the West Wing, which had not been occupied for over 100 years, was structurally reinforced with steel tie rods and temporary bracing to support the North and South elevations from separating from the gable ends.
Phase II of the renovation was completed in 2002, with the West Wing containing 3 bedrooms with private baths.
