1. Bailey's Creek Marker
Inscription. Bailey's Creek is named for Temperance Bailey (ca. 1617-ca. 1652), the daughter of Cicely Bailey and her first husband, whose name is unknown. When he died before Sept. 1620, Temperance inherited 200 acres of land near here at the age of three. Her mother remarried, first Samuel Jordan and then William Farrar, and resided with Temperance at Jordan's Point on the James River. Temperance Bailey married, first, John Browne, and then, by 1632, Richard Cocke, thereby becoming the progenitrix of the Cocke family in Virginia. Late in the twentieth century, archaeologists excavated her childhood home at Jordan's Point.
