McCrady's chef takes his modern Southern cooking from Charleston to Charlottesville

Charleston chef wunderkind Jeremiah Langhorne will take a trip to his hometown of historic Charlottesville, Va. this fall — to hang out in a garden.

It’s the garden of Clifton Inn, which is hosting a fall showcase series of sorts for exceptionally talented chefs. Langhorne, chef du cuisine at Charleston’s acclaimed McCrady’s restaurant, is first up in the series, and it’s clear why his good friend and Clifton Inn’s executive chef Tucker Yoder invited him to cook. At age 26, Langhorne has already honed his skills at OXO and Noma, and been named one of the “2012 Top Five Rising Chefs in America” by Gayot.

He will return to Charlottesville a much different man than he was when he graduated from high school there and started his career as a pizza delivery boy. After working with James Beard Award-winning chef and fellow Virginian Sean Brock at McCrady’s, Langhorne has developed a unique cooking style focusing on “modern Southern cuisine with indigenous ingredients.”

That translates to seasonal offerings like Dry Aged Duck Breast with Foie Gras Consomé; Rye Gnocchi and Cabbage; and Bloomsbury Cheese with Smoked Raisins, Wheat Crackers and Sherry Honey. 80 people will get to taste this cuisine for themselves at Clifton Inn’s seven course prix-fixe garden dinner. $75 a person or $125 with wine pairings will get you a spot at the long, elegant, communal table on the croquet lawn this fall.

If a trip to Charlottesville sounds good, clear your calendars for September 12, 2012 at 7pm. Check out the website for more details and reservations.

Slow Food California explored Nordic food traditions

Some of Our Favorite DC-Area Restaurants Are Offering Takeout and Delivery (Updated)

About Coronavirus 2020

Washingtonian is keeping you up to date on the coronavirus around DC.

More and more restaurants are offering takeout and no-contact delivery—from casual neighborhood spots to Michelin-starred dining rooms. Here are a few of our favorites in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. We’ll update this post as more options become available.

DC Restaurants

ABC Pony
2 I St., SE
The Asian-meets-Italian Navy Yard cafe offers its daytime menu—egg-drop soup, fusilli with white bolognese, spaghetti with XO sauce—for pickup or delivery via Caviar.

1346 Fourth St., SE
Michael Rafidi’s long-awaited Levantine restaurant in Navy Yard was only open for a short time, but I fell hard for dishes like pear fattoush, barbecue lamb ribs, and carrots with dates and labne. They’re doing both $40 three-course dinners and lunchtime shawarmas (chicken thigh and harissa pork belly) Wednesday through Sunday. Call 202-921-9592 or order here. They’ll also deliver to nearby apartments.

1805 18th St., NW
One of the best things I ate last year was Anju’s gochujang-glazed fried chicken, drizzled in Alabama-style white barbecue sauce—in fact, it was one of the (many) reasons we named it DC’s #1 restaurant. That super-crunchy bird, along with the equally excellent ssam board and dumplings, is available for pick-up and delivery via Caviar.

2132 Florida Ave., NW
Burgers, bolognese, and Frank Ruta’s famed roast chicken is being packaged for carryout and curbside pickup at this elegant Dupont newcomer. Available between noon and 8 PM. Call 202-916-5675 for pick-up, order via Caviar for delivery.

Bantam King

Chicken comes in a few forms at this Japanese fast-casual in Penn Quarter. There’s the very comforting ramen, the very crisp fried chicken, and the punchy gyoza.

Bistro Aracosia
5100 MacArthur Blvd., NW
This Afghan gem in the Palisades draws from a trove of heirloom recipes to create creamy stews, refreshing salads and dips, and some of the best manti around.

Call the restaurant directly at 202-363-0400 to order pickup or delivery (only within a one mile radius, with two hours advance notice).

The Most Exciting Fall Restaurant Openings

After a bit of a summer slump, fall will bring a robust freshman class of restaurants, from a few set to open in October at the District Wharf to new neighborhood hangs. Since openings are moving targets, note that these restaurants could open anytime from September through November. These are the spots we’re tracking:

100 District Square SW,

The District is getting its own location of Requin from Chefs Jennifer Carroll and Mike Isabella. The restaurant had a successful start in Virginia’s Mosaic District, and will soon open its D.C. version in the mammoth District Wharf development. Requin will sit squarely on the boardwalk, where it will have extensive patio seating for warm weather. Carroll’s cooking showcases flavors from the South of France, Morocco, Spain, and Greece, and diners can expect a more refined menu compared to the brasserie-style offerings in Virginia.

79 Potomac Ave. SE,

The second location of All-Purpose, located across from Nats Park, could be open in time for playoff season, which will be a double win if the home team finds itself a contender. Chef Mike Friedman says the menu will include the greatest hits from the Shaw location, plus some twists. “I want our Capitol Riverfront location to reflect a meeting of the minds between the New York/New Jersey coast and the Sicilian/Amalfi coast,” he says. Think chickpea panelle (Sicilian fritters), tuna carpaccio, and “fun new pizza combos.” Also unlike the Shaw location, there will be several outdoor spaces including a rooftop bar overlooking the river.

1346-B Florida Ave. NW,

Compass Rose owner Rose Previte and the chefs behind the forthcoming restaurantMaydan just got back from an intense research and development trip to Lebanon, Georgia, and other countries that will inform the new menu. Maydan is coming to the Manhattan Laundry Building, and Previte hopes the high ceilings and open floor plan will create the feeling of being in a public square overseas. Chefs Gerald Addison and Chris Morgan, who will man the kitchens at both Compass Rose and Maydan, will focus on food cooked over an open hearth at the new project.

1906 14th St. NW,

Chef Ryan Ratino, who impressed local critics, albeit briefly, with his cooking at Ripple, is gearing up to open his first solo restaurant at the age of 27. Look for dry-aged meat and ingredient combinations you’ve never seen before, like foie gras brined in dashi with smoked eel, green apple, and chestnut. The menu will be divided between appetizers and a handful of large, sharable entrees. Bresca is going into the former Policy space on 14th Street NW, and Juan Coronado is drawing up a menu of cocktails.

915 F St. NW,

There will be one more restaurant to consider for before and after events at the Verizon Center when Succotash opens in Penn Quarter. Chef Edward Lee’s cuisine fuses his Korean heritage with his favorite recipes from the South. He already operates a Succotash in National Harbor, where he serves dirty fried chicken with dark meat dripping in spicy gochujang honey, blue cheese, and pickles, as well as a pimento cheeseburger. The 310-seat downtown D.C. location is going into the historic Equitable Bank Building, erected in 1911.

3000 12th St. NE,

Sebastian Zutant is one of several top D.C. sommeliers branching out to open wine bars. He’s even making some of the wine he’ll pour at his Brookland bar-meets-bistro. His wife and partner, Lauren Winter of Edit Lab, is tasked with making the 66-seat space with floor-to-ceiling windows feel feminine and French enough to be worthy of the name Primrose. Chef Nathan Beauchamp of Fainting Goat and Tiger Fork is creating a small menu with classics like bœuf à la Bourguignonne served in big pots with crusty bread to pair with the roughly 14 wines by the glass and 75 bottles.

1401 Okie St. NE,

Chef Matt Baker is eager to start serving his two modern American menus at his long-delayed Ivy City restaurant Gravitas, which is going into the Tomato Factory building. The vegetarian tasting menu features dishes like roasted beets with pickled white peaches, dehydrated black quinoa, Vidalia onion marmalade, and cauliflower veloute. The other menu incorporates meat and fish but pays equal attention to nature’s candy, as Baker is obsessed with the versatility of vegetables. Diners can also look forward to getting drinks in the rooftop greenhouse bar.

2000 18th St. NW,

Adams Morgan will gain a new restaurant dedicated to burgers when Chef Alex McCoy opens Lucky Buns in the former L’Enfant Café space. He hopes to create a casual hang featuring burgers inspired by the countries he’s visited, easy-drinking punches, and live music. The kitchen could potentially crank out patties until 3 a.m. on weekends. Spring for a side of fries because they’re thick-cut, British-style chips.

1222 9th St. NW,

Michelin-starred Shaw restaurant The Dabney is growing into its basement with a wine bar big enough to fit about 30 people. The cozy space, lined with stacks of firewood for the restaurant upstairs, will have about 30 wines by the glass. Keeping with the theme of pumping up Mid-Atlantic cuisine, Chef Jeremiah Langhorne has put together a trim food menu with locally-sourced charcuterie and cheese and a raw bar.

751 Wharf St. SW,

Find Filipino, Thai, and Korean food in one place when Kaliwa opens, also at the District Wharf. The restaurant is Chef Cathal Armstrong‘s major D.C. debut. He’s long led restaurants in Old Town, Alexandria including Restaurant Eve. The best night to visit Kaliwa will be when they’re offering a special-occasion Filipino feast called “Kamayan,” most likely at one table on Thursday nights. The team has also been testing recipes for crispy pata—a pork leg that’s boiled until it’s tender and then deep-fried.

1331 4th St. SE,

Named for his niece and the ancient Greek goddess of agriculture, Chloe is Chef Haidar Karoum‘s first solo project. He recently served as the executive chef at Proof, Estadio, and Doi Moi. At the Navy Yard restaurant, he’ll focus on cuisine inspired by his Lebanese roots, his love of cooking Southeast Asian cuisine, and his travels around the Mediterranean. Equally important to the chef is showcasing seasonal products from Mid-Atlantic farms. Dishes could include crispy whole fish, goat cheese cavatelli with heirloom tomatoes, and a Chesapeake blue crab salad tartine.

Note: Reverie is looking more like a winter opening and The LINE DC Hotel continues to experience delays. A representative from the hotel couldn’t definitively say Brothers & Sisters, Spoken English, and A Rake’s Progress will open in the fall.

I spent my childhood days watching and learning to bake from my Mother and Grandmother, who had worked in her father’s bakery after school making rolls and bread. Hunting and fishing with my Dad and brother taught me to respect the product. I am a history geek in every way, since my family became involved with living history in 1989.

After an injury in College football, my dreams switched from the field to the kitchen. I had brief stints cooking in Pennsylvania followed by 2 years in coastal Maine.

After a stage at McCrady’s in Charleston I was intrigued by charcuterie and went to do an apprenticeship under world renowned butcher Dario Cecchini at Panzano in Chianti, Italy. Working for Dario changed my life. It made me realize that getting up and loving what you do everyday is rare, do whatever you have to do to achieve this!

I went back to the states after my apprenticeship was over and got a job as the butcher at Husk Restaurant under Chef Sean Brock and Chef De Cuisine Travis Grimes. The next 7 years I worked for the Neighborhood Dining Group at various positions and developed the charcuterie and bread program at Husk.

Half Crown Bakehouse was born from my love of history and food. All of the people in my life have inspired me in some way to make this vision real.


Opie Crooks knew he belonged in the kitchen ever since he started washing dishes and bussing tables at age 14. He watched the chef and loved the intensity, energy, and urgency involved in the role. In 2006, he graduated from Le Cordon Bleu’s Atlanta campus and immediately jumped into a position with legendary Chef Roy Yamaguchi at the Atlanta location of Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine. Crooks spent nearly a decade working for Yamaguchi, becoming a chef-partner and moving between Atlanta, Jacksonville, and finally Baltimore with a brief stint at Anne Quatranno’s Abattoir in Atlanta in between.

In 2013, he left the Roy’s to join forces with Spike Gjerde, first as chef of Shoo-Fly and then as chef de cuisine of Gjerde’s landmark Baltimore restaurant, Woodberry Kitchen, known for an intense focus on the ingredients and traditions of the mid-Atlantic region, serving hyper-local comfort and technically precise food that helped earn Gjerde a James Beard Award for “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic” in 2015. Admired by his peers for his creativity, energy, and leadership skills, Crooks was named “Best Chef ” by Baltimore’s City Paper in 2015. In 2017, Gjerde and Crooks opened A Rake’s Progress inside The LINE DC hotel in Washington, D.C.’s Adams Morgan neighborhood. Crooks leads the team, applying the strict sourcing ethos to all aspects of the operation, including fine dining, banquets, the coffee shop, and even the hotel’s staff meals.

Ashbell McElveen was born into a South Carolina family that thought good food was a birthright. With his father, mother, and aunts as teachers, McElveen learned classic low country and other southern cooking styles, traditional smoking and curing of meats, barbecue, and even the making of bourbon and moonshine. Uncovering the roots of southern American foodways and the preservation of his and other families’ treasured recipes is both his mission and his passion.

At age 19, Chef Ashbell went to France for a year of academic study. Hungry for hands-on experience in the kitchens of Paris, he stayed an extra year working in restaurants, learning French regional cookery. After completing his undergraduate study in the U.S.A., Chef Ashbell promptly returned to France. He attended La Sorbonne during the academic year and spent summers working in more restaurants, including Haynes, Paris’ famous soul food restaurant started by Leroy Haynes.

In the 1990’s “Chef Ashbell,” the TV personality was born. Chef Ashbell became a regular on WNBC’s Weekend Today Show with Matt Lauer, where he cooked the foods of New York City’s melting pot. McElveen was seen as a local champion of ethnic cuisine by a population that had been previously ignored by mainstream network television.

In 2003 Chef Ashbell became the only American chef invited to open a cafe in a British Royal Park. The Toyo Ito-designed pavilion for the Serpintine Gallery opened in Hyde Park in summer 2003. Ashbell’s at the Serpentine Gallery provided a southern-style American nosh -- the likes of which had never been experienced before in London town!

Later that year Chef Ashbell opened the eponymous Ashbell’s restaurant in Notting Hill, serving American southern regional cuisine. Ashbell’s received four stars from A.A. Gil in his review for the Sunday Times of London.

Chef Ashbell became a regular contributor on BBC’s Good Food Live, amassing more fans across the pond. His frequent television appearances and online catalogue of recipes for the top-rated show drew raves and downloads.

Later, Chef Ashbell moved to Bristol, spending several years researching the British roots of Southern U.S. cooking. He penned a monthly column for Clifton Life Magazine, showcasing the creative ethnic dishes cooked by expats living in the area. A highlight of his time in Bristol was creating an installation of an American jazz and southern food experience for the historic Ashton Court Manor.

Following the Hurricane Katrina disaster of 2005, Chef Ashbell spent over one year in New Orleans. He worked to restore fresh food markets in the Lower Ninth Ward, and helped to launch the Renaissance Project.

After 12 years living in London and Bristol, Chef Ashbell returned to the U.S.A. in 2012. He started the Real Soul Food Company to topple the narrow and negative depiction of “soul food” by producing innovative, high-quality and healthy products.

In 2014, The Real Soul Food Company launched its first line of smoked meats. Branded as Ashbell’s Smokehouse Deli, the all-natural turkey meat line features cured turkey pastrami and turkey bacon. The secret recipe is inspired by the traditional southern curing process.

The Ashbell’s Smokehoue Deli line is currently available in selected restaurants and delicatessens in Philadelphia, as well as through select New York area CSA’s.

Chef Ashbell created the James Hemings Foundation in 2014 to study, document, educate, and preserve African Americans’ contributions to American iconic food and drink. He is currently writing a book and screenplay on the life of James Hemings.

Chef Ashbell is proud to call Philadelphia, the birthplace of American Independence, his home.

Jeremiah Langhorne Cooks at Clifton Inn Garden This Fall - Recipes

They don’t cook Southern food in the Carolinas. They cook their food. Ever heard of Tom Thumb? This Christmas season treat is a celebration sausage. Just stuff a hog appendix with spicy ground pork and fat at Thanksgiving and hang it in the smokehouse. Then poach, slice, and pan-fry. Don’t forget to save the cooking liquid for the peas and collard greens. It's a tradition that could have been lost had North Carolina Chef Vivian Howard not come home to cook down east in Kinston. Recognizing the huge responsibility of a Southern chef, she revived the heirloom sausage by talking to an old country butcher and by probing her father’s memories.

Out west, in the Appalachian highlands, they scramble eggs with hog brains and sometimes smother them in red-eye gravy, which Justin Burdett has transformed into a fine-dining worthy dish of red-eye gravy consommé and hog brain ravioli. "Farm-to-table is such a cliché," he says, "but I feel like the South has been doing it forever—out of necessity, not because it was a cool thing to do.”

This deep seated respect for the culinary heritage of the Carolinas has seeped into every part of the industry. Down in Charleston, South Carolina, Mixologist Brooks Reitz of The Ordinary is serving a nearly forgotten rum cocktail called the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club that celebrates the relationship and shared nautical culture of Charleston and Bermuda.

Inland, in Durham, North Carolina, Charcutier Justin Meddis of Rose's Meat Market & Sweet Shop is re-popularizing sausage and other prepared meats that have fallen out of fashion. North Carolina Potato Sausage and Carolina Red Hots are becoming staples once again. Pastry Chef Katie Meddis, who puts the sweet in Rose's Shop, is bringing the entrenched Carolina farm-centric cooking into the bakery, a combination that's new for the area.

Escazú Artisan Chocolates in Raleigh is using a recipe for one of their bean-to-bar chocolates that predates the Carolina's. Escazu's 1631 Chocolate Bar is an awakening, and it’s part of the new American Chocolate movement that is gaining momentum in the Carolinas and the rest of the country. Escazú uses modern flavor combinations, too, such as hibiscus-green peppercorn, and the unexpected and superlatively North Carolina flavor: tobacco-ribbon cane syrup.

The chocolate makers are collaborating with the forerunners of the other boom in the Carolinas: beer. Videri Chocolate has collaborated with Deep River Brewing over in Clayton. It exemplifies the spirit of collaboration that defines the Carolina craft brewers.

The Carolinas are also an emerging place for wine. Especially if you work with Chef Travis Grimes of Husk in Charleston. The whole hog is often the mascot for Carolina cuisine, and Grimes's pig-glorifying charcuterie program has been the perfect back drop for Sommelier Matt Tunstall to showcase his pairing skills and idiosyncratic knowledge of varietals.

The unhinged creativity of Carolina cooking brought us dishes like Two Textures Trout "Marrow" from Nathan Allen of Knife & Fork in Spruce Pine and potato skin brodo from Brian Canipelli of Cucina24 in Asheville. We also saw tried and true techniques brought back and reinvigorated. Again in Asheville, Jacob Sessoms of Table is poaching delicate and decadent halibut in a vat of spiced whole butter, not a sous vide bag. Aaron Siegel of Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ in Charleston, is reaching further south, adding technique and his populist touch to the humble chicken wing. He smokes the wings and douses them in Alabama white sauce—creating more than a hankering for Home Team wings, but a hysteria.

Beer, chocolate, wings . even Tom Thumb, they're all proof of the pride and excitement taking hold in kitchens throughout the Carolinas. New regional Carolina cuisine is being forged every day, by this year's Rising Stars and chefs across the region, making these stately sisters of the North and South, one of the most creative, forward-thinking, culinary scenes in the country.

Momofuku comes roaring back

The Eurythmics are singing in the background, their 1980s-era lyrics in perfect tune with the bing bread I’m inhaling. “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” certainly applies to the Chinese flatbread, crisped on the grill and embellished with options including a spread of garlicky hummus made with fermented sunflower seeds. But the British rockers could just as well be serenading the spicy cucumbers, sunset-colored whole roast chicken and steak ssam (think wraps) that have crossed my lips since super-chef David Chang installed Tae Strain as kitchen honcho in the big corner dining room in CityCenter. Strain did away with his predecessor’s ramen and buns, but he has replaced them with a slew of things to help you forget: a resplendent salad of sweet figs, bitter Treviso (chicory), soft eggplant and pink folds of ham, for instance, and a po boy that tastes like a glorified banh mi, stacked with five-spiced, rotisserie-cooked pork belly, chicken mousse and a garden of herbs. “I really, really like bright food,” says Strain. A packed dining room suggests his audience really, really does, too.

I began in Annapolis, which should be a stop on any trip to eastern Maryland, and quickly realized that there&aposs more to the city than the famous naval academy. History is everywhere you look: colonial-era taverns, 19th-century churches, the statehouse where the Treaty of Paris was ratified. But there&aposs also a lot that is new, like the stylish, recently opened restaurants I passed as I walked down the red-brick Main Street leading to Annapolis Harbor. I dropped in for lunch at Preserve, a restaurant and pickling operation run by Jeremy Hoffman, an alum of New York City&aposs Per Se, and his wife, Michelle, formerly of Union Square Café. The menu reinvents Maryland mainstays: dishes include fish-and-chips, with the cod switched out for tempura catfish, and buffalo-style soft-shell crab. Follow the street down to the waterfront and you&aposll come to the 160-year-old Market House, which has a new food hall and grocery packed with purveyors of local goods such as cider, seasoning mix, and fresh-from-the-bay oysters.

Nearby, the burgeoning Arts District is home to the city&aposs best galleries, as well as the delightful Sailor Oyster Bar. I ordered an afternoon pick-me-up of crudo and smoked sardines with buttered bread. At the center of the neighborhood is the new Graduate Annapolis, the place to stay. It&aposs the perfect distillation of this college town, with navy signal flags lining the lobby walls and a color scheme inspired by the colorful shell of the Chesapeake blue crab.

The Graduate is ideally situated for access to Annapolis&aposs main attractions, the most delicious of which is Flamant, a new restaurant in a clapboard bungalow in a quiet residential neighborhood. There, Belgian-born chef Frederik De Pue, formerly of Washington, D.C.&aposs Table, creates updated versions of Flemish classics. I popped in as it began to rain and warmed up over a glass of Riesling and an ultra-cozy veal stew — served with Belgian pommes frites, of course.

E-Mail from Barbara Hensley of Houston TX : I descend from the first Thomas Godwin through Thomas whose son married Martha Bridger, Their son Thomas who married Mary, daughter of Capt. Edmond Godwin, through Jeremiah born l727 who married Mary Holliday, through Jeremiah b. l766
who married Sally Wilkinson,
who had Jeremiah, who married Mary Rosser,
through Benjamin Franklin Godwin who married Sarah Pleasant Caver,
through James Cicero Godwin who married Sarah Elizabeth Williams and
through my grandmother Annie Verda Bella Godwin who married Samuel Albert Smith and
Then my Mother, Lillian Annie Smith, who married my Dad, Jack Harris.
That is a mouthful, isn’t it. We live in Houston and have been to Al. , met a Godwin relative and visited the burial site of Benjamin F. Godwin, his wife, and several of his children. I
saw the stone of My great grandfather buried in Salty, Tx., Milam County, Tx.

I have wills and probate of Jeremiah, who married Sally Wilkinson. He died in Putnam Co., Ga., and she went back to Va. I know the Boddie, Seventeenth Century Isle of Wight book, says -the 3rd- Jeremiah died young but not so.
We have also been to Milledgeville, and it is very pretty, lots of trees but didn’t find any information on the Godwins. I have never been able to find the parents of Mary Rosser.

About Clotilda Godwin by Mildred M Holladay [ca 1938]
Clotilda was a great beauty and belle. She visited relatives in Williamsburg and was on friendly terms with the statesmen and prominent men of the period. A brilliant woman, whose family made her marry a wealthy cousin much older than herself. According to family tradition , she led him a dance. During the Revolution she enjoyed herself riding about on her fine horse she wore a blue velvet riding habit that has become historical in the family circle. Thus attired one day she met some American soldiers trying to elude the British, who were pursuing them. Among them were perhaps many of her friends and relatives. Advising them as to the road they should take, for the main road forked at the spot, she hurried them on their way. The dust from the horses hoofs had hardly cleared when the Red Coats appeared. Clotilda knew she could not foil them by giving the wrong path. But she determined to save her friends and what “Madame Clo,” undertook to do, she did. An officer approached her with the expected question. Madame Clo was fascinating. The officer was in a hurry to go, but Madame Clo held him, and he was no longer keen on the trail. Increasing her spell until she was sure that the pursued had had full time to get ahead she then told the courteous gentleman the way the men had gone, but in such a way that they thought she was fooling them. So they did not go that way , thereby losing their prey.
Towards the latter part of the war , Clotilda Godwin raised a great scandal in the county. An English officer fell in love with her, and she encouraged his attentions, and some said she eloped with him. It would be interesting to know if he was the officer who pursued the Americans and was so charmed by her. Family tradition, however, has never said more of Clotilda than was necessary as a rule, and when her uncle, Thomas Holladay, spoke of her in angry scorn, his young son Andrew, one of her devoted followers, reproved him for his strictures. Father and son quarreled —Andrew’s ears were boxed by his irate father and the youth, then about 18, left home swearing that his family should never hear of him again. His fate has always been a mystery and from that day to this, nothing has been heard of him by them.
Many years ago one of the old Godwin Homesteads in Chuckatuck was sold and left in the house was the portrait of Clotilda Godwin. None of the family wanted Madame Clo though a lady living in Chuckatuck told me that it was of a stunning woman.
Clotilda lived to a great age. She and her husband had spent their fortune in their early days. When timeworn she opened a school for girls at Chuckatuck, and many in the country were horrified and declared that Madame Godwin should never teach their children. A rival school ma’am appeared on the scene, but Clotilda Godwin never booked a rival. Her very advanced pedagogy left the other lady, not a leg to stand on. Unfortunately, her ideas, in general, have not come down to us, but some of her spelling methods still linger–among them that dairy delicacy bonny clabber, which she spelled b-a-u-g-h N-a-u-g-h c-l-a-u-g-h b-a-u-g-h. In a short while , she reigned alone, and the doors of the other school were closed. My father remembers having been sent to her school when he was five years old. The school being near the gates of the home, he was carried over each day on the back of a man servant. He could remember nothing of her methods but the woman herself made a great impression on him, he thought her “the oldest thing he had ever seen.”

e-mails from Tim Riley –
I live on land originally deeded to Johnathan Brewer and left to his relative Brewer Godwin and Hannah Godwin, who apparently left the land to their son, Dr. Josiah Godwin who supposedly built the home approx. In 1789ish. He, in turn, left it back to his mother and then his nephew Alexander H Godwin.
The tract of land on which this two-story house stands was part of a grant of John Brewer, who died in Va. in 1635. On the south chimney of the house are three dates which appear to be 1716, 1766, and 1789. One has to assume that the house standing now was built or restored at the latest date given. In that case, Dr. Josiah Godwin put his home on land given by his father and mother, Brewer and Hannah Godwin in 1795. Brewer Godwin’s will, probated 1800 “…to my son Josiah – the plantation on which he now lives, the lands which lie on the south side of the road to the Brick Church (St. Lukes).”
Dr. Josiah Godwin died shortly after his father and left “the plantation I now live on called Mount Airdere” to his mother for her life and then to his nephew, Alexander H. Godwin, son of Brewer II.
The home lies on the banks of Brewer’s Creek in Isle of Wight Co., Va.
