George Poindexter (Poingdestre), a member of
prominent family on the Isle of Jersey in the
English Channel, arrived in Virginia by the 1650s
and settled at Middle Plantation, now Williamsburg.
He acquired land in at least three counties,
prospered as a tobacco planter, owned a number
of enslaved African Americans, and controlled
an interest in the merchant ship Planters
Adventure.
In 1679 Poindexter was elected to the
vestry of Bruton Parish. He and his wife,
Susanna, moved to New Kent County in the
1680s. Their descendants owned several plantations in this area, including Cedar Lane, Criss Cross, and Moss Side.
