Bushfield, located on the peninsula where Nomini Creek meets Nomini Bay in Westmoreland county, Va., was initially the property of John Bushrod, Hannah Bushrod Washington's father. In 1760 John Bushrod left his daughter the house in his will, along with 35 enslaved people. The house was a Flemish-bond brick mansion of two stories, with a center passage. Hannah Bushrod Washington left the house to BW in her will, and it passed to him after her death in 1801. He sold it in 1804, relocating to Mount Vernon.
