Regarding The Pembroke Manor House. The Pembroke Manor House was built in 1764 by Jonathan Saunders on land given to his grandfather by the english crown in 1694. His son, Captain John Saunders, fought for England in the Revolutionary War and was evicted by Thomas Jefferson, then Virginia's governor, after the war. Jefferson auctioned off the house in 1781, and it was purchased by the Kellams, who are today a well-known Virginia Beach family. The Pembroke Manor House is now part of the Ivy League Academy, a private Christian elementary school.
