Here is the info on the family home of Julia West Warden, daughter of Nathaniel Spence Warden. It was written my Indiana Julia Warden Bonney in 1928. "West’s Landing was on Currituck Sound. It is still called West’s Landing. To reach it by land you drive through Gibb’s Woods in a southward direction from Blackwater Baptist Church, and over Mill Dam Bridge. Continuing southward until reaching Dr. Joseph Reid’s farm, which one must turn eastward and travel perhaps something like three miles. The remnants of the house were the remains of three large brick chimneys that showed they were part of a two-story house."

RE: the Nathaniel line: I find nothing to support the long line of Nathaniel West's from Capt. West who died in 1624. His only son, Nathaniel, Jr. appears to have died, without issue in England. If, in fact, there is a succession of Nathaniel's, it did not come from him and I cannot find any of the Baron De La Warr descendents with the same name that produced males of the same name.

It is interesting to note that the Princess Anne Co/Norfolk Co. supposed connection with the De La Warr West's is mentioned in the West Family Register without any substantiation.

I cannot account for the few mentions of a Nathaniel West in Princess Anne Co. in the early 1800's except that he was perhaps related as a nephew or other relation of Nathaniel Spence West.
