Rosewell was built by Mann Page and his son, Mann Page II, between c. 1725 and 1737 in Gloucester County, Virginia. It was the largest and finest of American houses in the colonial period, intended to rival the grandeur of the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg. It burned in 1916.
Mann Page (1691-1730) was married to Robert "King" Carter's daughter, Judith. Educated at Eton College and Oxford University, he was a member of the Governor's Council. His grandson, John Page, was Governor of Virginia and a close friend of Thomas Jefferson.
Rosewell's grand staircase was one of the finest in America. An unusual design, it was entered at the right side of a very large hall.
