      Bishop Payne in his letter to Bishop Meade, appearing in the latter's "Old Churches and Families of Virginia", calls this old home "Red House", and says "it was immediately in rear of Bunker Hill and three miles from Leedstown. The original house has long since disappeared. The present owner of the estate is Mr. Harry W. Coates. It has been known for many years as "Cedar Hill". He bought 940 acres in 1653 in Lancaster County on Pepetick Creek, on N.S.R.R. in that region of Lancaster County then known as Rappahannock, and which in 1656 was organized as Rappahannock County. He did not occupy this land until some years later. Pepetick Creek (called Pedee and Perpertocks on current U.S. Geological Survery maps) is today in Westmoreland and flows in to the Rappahannock River about two and a half miles below Leedstown.
