The original home Fleet Street is thought to be still standing and after restorations looks very much the same as the old photo but with newly painted exterior and a nice slate roof. Where there is a home in this area , the owner today does not know of any visible graves and or stones. If anyone knows different please contact to add information.
From the book, Old New Kent County, Virginia
Some Account of the Planters , Volume 1:
This small country home was erected by Christopher Tompkins. It is a story and half house with large end chimneys and dormer windows to light the upper rooms and the hallways. The size of the house was related to other houses close by, in which the older boys and visitors found quarters. It was here that Christopher Tompkins and Ann his wife reared their family.
To Etna Mills, to Mangohick, and the road from Mangohick to Etna Mills.
In 1820, Christopher Tompkins was charged with 764 acres of land which was his plantation next to the lands of John Hickman at Hickman's Gatepost (Etna Mills).
The site of the residence of Christopher Tompkins Jr was probably on the road to Etna Mills, which was lately a Hutchinson home.
