The rich history of Belle Meade Farm dates all the way back to the 1800s when is was purchased by the Waring family in 1809. Thomas Waring was prominent in the early development of Virginia. He served as a member of the House of Burgesses and a Justice in Essex County. His son Francis Waring served on the Legislature in Williamsburg. Francis' son, William Waring served as a Colonel in the Revolutionary War. William's son Henry Waring served as a Captain in the War of 1812. Keeping in the family tradition of serving our county, Henry's son, Patrick Waring, was appointed by President Buchanan to explore and map the wilderness territory. Patrick Waring also served with Lee's army in 1862 and fought in all major battles. Upon the conclusion of a fulfilling service career, Patrick returned to Belle Meade Farm to serve as Essex County's Representative in the House of Delegates from 1899-1901. The history of the family who lived on Belle Meade Farm had an impact on Virginia's heritage and walking the property and looking out over the Rappahannock River you can feel the rich history of Belle Meade Farm. All lots are pending final subdivision recording.
