Mary Randolph, a native of Chesterfield County and author of the first American regional cookbook, lived nearby at Presquile Plantation during the last two decades of the 18th century after her marriage to David Meade Randolph in 1782. The couple then moved to Richmond, where Mary Randolph's reputation as cook, hostess and entrepreneur flourished. They later moved to Washington, D.C. In 1824, she published The Virginia Housewife, an important collection of recipes and advice that has been reprinted many times since. In her book, Mary Randolph revealed not only her own culinary genius, but also the rich and diverse heritage of early American cuisine.

The following excerpt is from the book VIRGINIA LANDMARKS REGISTER, p.202.
"Varina plantation is part of the ancient Varina Neck, just east of Henrico
Settled during the second decade of the 17th century, Varina Neck was the
site of the glebe of Henrico Parish, established before 1640.
The first Henrico County Courthouse was built next to the glebe before 1666.
In 1680 Varina was one of twenty sites in the colony selected for
development as a port town. A tavern was built there during the 1680's, and
a ferry traversed the river on Sundays, court days, and other public
The Reverend James Blair, who later became the first rector of the College
of William and Mary, made his home at the Henrico or Varina Glebe between
1685 and 1694 when he was rector of Varina Parish.
During the 1720's Thomas Randolph of Tuchahoe purchased land at Varina
(from the Farrar family of Farrar's Island in Varina), and his son and
successor, Thomas Mann Randolph, developed Varina into a prosperous working
In 1828 Thomas Mann Randolph, Jr., sold Varina Plantation to Pleasant Aiken
of Petrsburg, whose son and heir, Albert M. Aiken, built the present Varina
plantation house, a relatively late expression of the Classical Revival,
just before the Civil War. Aiken's Landing became one of two major points in
the South where Union and COnfederate prisoners of war could be exchanged.
In the mind-19th centruy a romantic legend arose linking Varina Neck with
John Rolfe and Pocahantas, a tale which lingers to this day."
