Peace Hill Farm is the heart of the sprawling colonial-era Peace Hill Plantation, which once covered hundreds of acres in eastern Charles City County, from the banks of the Chickahominy to just below the James.
A 1698 land patent given to the English settler John Pettiver sets the border of his property at “the north side of Peace Hill.” Fire has destroyed many records from this period, but the plantation was probably owned by one Sackville Brewer, a prosperous farmer whose sons later named other plantations in Hanover County and James City County “Peace Hill” after their childhood home.
According to family records, Peace Hill was given its name after a 1614 treaty between English settlers and the local Chickahominy tribe was signed on the plantation’s grounds.
