One researcher says that the plantation that George Glasscock had was called Indian Banks, Farnham, Richmond Co., Virginia.  It was call "Indian Banks" because it was part of the land where the Morraughraownas Indians lived when white men first settled at Jamestown in 1607.  George Glasscock built the mansion home called "Indian Banks" which was later the home of Mary Ball, mother of George Washington.

INDIAN BANKS was originally built in 1699 on the site of a Moraughtacund Indian village visited by Captain John Smith in 1608, but the name, Indian Banks, was not recorded until 1822 when the property was sold by Aldea Glascock to Thomas Dobyns. On 7/28/1652 Thomas Glascock (1640 - 1701) of Essex, England, was granted 600 acres of land on the north side of Morattico Creek for the transport of his wife, Jane Just Glascock, and two others. Thomas, who immigrated to Virginia 1643, had two known sons, Thomas Glascock II and Col. George Glascock (1675 - 1715), who built the original house. Captain William Glascock (1704 - 2/5/1784), son of Thomas II, built the present house in 1728 and lived there with his wife, Esther Ball Glascock. By 1730 he had established public warehouses at the landing at Indian Banks. Other members of the family who owned the tract included Richard Glascock who left the property to his son, Milton Syms Glascock, after the death of Milton's mother, Elizabeth, around 1800. Milton Glascock bequeathed it to his son, Aldea Amazon Glascock, who sold it to Thomas Dobyns in 1822 with 342 acres for $7,500. The house is still privately owned.

THOMAS GLASCOCK (1661-62, Richmond Co. - 1725-26, Fauquier Co.), lived on Farnham Creek about three miles north of Indian Banks. He was the grandson of Thomas and Jane Just Glascock, the son of Gregory Glascock (1634-44, England - 1690, VA) and the first cousin of Col. George Glascock of Indian Banks. Thomas married Sarah Stone in 1689 and their children were Gregory, John, Elizabeth, Thomas Jr., Sarah Stone and Peter Glascock. On 11/5/1723, for reasons unknown, Thomas stabbed to death one William Forrester. After the murder Glascock and his son Gregory, then 23, left in a small boat, but Gregory was put ashore about five miles below Morattico Creek and from there traveled as far as Norfolk before returning home. Upon his return he was named as an accessory to the murder; however, his testimony and that of his brothers resulted in his release. Thomas Glascock was never heard from again. Sarah Glascock remained with her children on Farnham Creek, but after her husband's indictment his property was confiscated and Robert "King" Carter took possession of his estate. Carter's 1726 will stated, "if my son John (Carter) comes to enjoy the said Glascock's lands under a good title that he then further consider the said Glascock's children in such proportion as he shall think fitt, or otherwise gratify them according to his discretion." Since both John and Peter Glascock settled on land owned by John Carter in Prince William County, it appears that Carter's son honored his father's request.
