Warner Hall in Gloucester, Virginia "The Home of the Queen's American Ancestors."

Augustine Warner arrived in America in 1628 at age 17. In 1642 he received a 600-acre plantation in Gloucester, Virginia in exchange for bringing twelve settlers across the Atlantic Ocean to the Jamestown Settlement, a colony desperately in need of manpower to survive in the New World.

"Queen Elizabeth II, the current monarch of England, is a direct descendent of Augustine Warner Sr. through the Bowes-Lyon family and the Earl of Strathmore."

Bacon's Rebellion - "After leading a 1676 rebellion against the British governor and burning Jamestown, Bacon retreated to Warner Hall Plantation. At the time, Augustine Warner Jr., who was Speaker of the House of Burgesses and a member of the King’s Council, was in residence and very likely agitated that his plantation was taken over by opponents of the Crown."

"Today, Warner Hall consists of a Colonial Revival manor house (circa 1900) which was rebuilt on the earlier 17th and 18th century foundation."
