      The information below is abstracted from the Virginia Acts of Assembly for the session beginning in December 1813 (bound volumes will probably be labeled "1814" which was the year of publication). The actual books are available in many libraries, as well as on microfilm from the Library of Congress (Records of the States series; about 1949). Most of this information is from what are called "private acts"
      -- acts that do not apply to everyone but allow a particular person or group to do something not ordinarily allowed under state law.

      Note:
      Archaeology:F-1 This property has the potential for containing significant archaeological resources.The lot was probably part of an 18th-century plantation, Bush Hill, owned first by JOSIAH WATSON and sold to RICHARD MARSHALL SCOTT in 1797. The main house of Bush Hill, constructed in 1763, was situated on the south side of Eisenhower Avenue, just southeast of this parcel. Foundations of outbuildings and other structural remains (such as wells, privies, or cisterns) as well as concentrations of artifacts associated with the 18th and early 19th-century occupation could be present on this property. In addition, the parcel has the potential to yield significant information about the prehistory of Alexandria. Native American camp sites were often situated on the bluffs and terraces of streams in setting similar to this overlooking the banks of Cameron Run

      Prince William Reliquary Vol. 3, No. 4 (October 2004) pg 82 [Bristow’s Tract]
      Also on 10 March 1794, there was a memorial presented to the Governor by Robert Bristow of Great
      Britain, an infant under 21, by Richard Marshall Scott of Dumfries, attorney for Mary Bristow, John Askill
      Bucknall and Reuben Phillipson, guardians of Robert Bristow. This memorial stated that Robert Bristow, the father of the said Robert Bristow, had a tract of land in Prince William in 1779 that escheated to the
      Commonwealth which had received the rent and was proposing to sell the land. Some of the tenants had
      brought suit and had obtained an injunction restraining the sale. The memorialist declared that under the
      Treaty of Peace with Great Britain and the imperfect proceedings of escheat, he had a right to the property and to the money obtained from the sale. He asked that the proposed sale be suspended until the merits of the injunction bill were tried
