Pomfret Plantation

History

POMFRET PLANTATION (NR) is considered one of the most significant historic sites in Somerset County, Maryland. It was the home of the prominent Coulbourne Family for 250 years. The plantation was a 1400 acre land grant from Lord Baltimore to William Coulbourne of North Hampton County Virginia, in the year 1663.  William Coulbourne settled on the plantation in October of that year. Colonel Coulbourne, as he was known, served in the 17th century militia, was commissioner of the peace, was the high sheriff of Somerset County,  and drew the peace of  treaty of 1687 with the Nanticoke Indians.

Several Pomfret houses and dependancies listed in the tax assessments from the 1700s have not survived.  It is thought that the existing house, c. 1820, was built by William Coulbourne VI.  The land was divided many times through the years for Family members. Pomfret plantation remained in the Coulbourne Family until 1921.

POMFRET TODAY

Pomfret today is much as it was in 1820. The estate now consists of 467 acres fronting on the Annemessex River and Coulbourne Creek. The residence today retains 95% of its original Federal interior woodwork.

Driving up the mile long driveway what first comes into view are the magnificent double porches overlooking ancient boxwood gardens. To the right an iron fence protects the Coulbourne Family gravesite. In the distance is the Annemessex  River and white sandy beaches. The impressive three part Federal style residence presides over hundreds of english boxwood plantings, magnolia trees, numerous pecan and walnut trees and acres of lush lawn grasses.  There are five outbuildings
