    • Monticello Graveyard. letter written by Cornelia Randolph Taylor to Jefferson Randolph Kean about conditions in the Graveyard, December 8th 1913: Now the question occurs to me about Cary Ruffin -I think his name should be put Randolph, on a stone with bare name and dates as the last name, would be very misleading as to his parentage -and I always thought his ex-wife responsible for the change of name, but while I feel that the name should be Ruffin, I do not think it right for me to take that responsibility on myself -I believe his brothers and the rest of the family would prefer the Ruffin -as the change was always unpopular with us all -so I am referring this matter to you -I will make his stone the last when a visitor asked her "Is that man Cary Ruffin Randolph here?", she replied "He is my first cousin and lies yonder".

  • Notes 
    • Cary Randolph Ruffin lived at Edgehill, after his mother's death and inherited it. Changed his name to Cary Ruffin Randolph, married Ethel Patterson and died without issue.
      p 21 Tuckahoe Randolph


      EDGEHILL , 65.1 m., a two story brick house above the highway, has a wide view though a grove conceals it from the road. The square, central section, in Classical Revival style, is unexpectedly simple. On the front is a one-story flat-roofed portico surmounted by a Chippendale balustrade. Four chimneys are grouped close to the short ridge of the low hipped roof. A rear wing is a later addition. Although William Randolph of Tuckahoe patented land here on ihe north side of the Rivanna in 1735, none of the family lived here until his grandson, Colonel Thomas Mann Randolph, married Martha Jefferson. Colonel Randolph, who managed Thomas Jefferson's estates during his long absences and was governor of Virginia 1819-22, died in 1828. Colonel Thomas Jefferson Randolph, his son, found the old brick house too small and had it moved back in the yard, where it stands now, covered with clapboarding. That same year he erected the front part of the present structure, according to drawings prepared long before by Jefferson. Here in 1836 Mrs.Jane Nicholas Randolph, wife of Jefferson's grandson, opened a boarding school for girls. Closed during the War between the States, it was reopened and functioned until 1896. Before the end of the nineteenth century, the interior had been burned and then restored.

      The Randolph grant of 2400 acres, lying between Shadwell and Belmont, was one of the earliest in the County, having been obtained "a few days earlier" than that of Peter Jefferson, in 1735. The family, however, did not have residence here until 1790, when the old house was built by Col. Thomas Mann Randolph, Jr., the grandson of the original owner. Colonel afterwards Governor Randolph, was Jefferson s son-in-law, and though he had large estates on James River he practically lived at Edge-hill, in order to be near Jefferson, whose property he largely directed during his many absences. In 1828 the present mansion was erected by Coy. Randolph, from plans drawn for his daughter by Mr. Jefferson. At this time the old house was moved back to the position it now occupies. For many years it served as the school- house for the famous Edgehill School. Two magnificent leaning tulip trees are said to have been promising saplings at the time of this move, and to have been bent down to permit the building to pass over them. The view at Edgehill is said to be very similar to that at Edgehill, Warwickshire, for which it was named.
