About Archibald Cary Randolph

"Colonel Archibald Cary Randolph of Ben Lemond, Goochland County. Son of Thomas Isham and Jane Cary Randolph of Dungeness was born in 1769. He married Lucy, daughter of Col. Nathaniel and Susanna G. Burwell of Carter's Grove, James City County April 6, 1797. They lived at Ben Lemond and afterwards removed to Clarke County. He died November 14, 1913. Col. Randolph was a great lover of horse-flesh and he with Col. John Tayloe bred the famous thoroughbred, Sir Archy, in the spring of 1805 on James River. Col. Randolph named the colt "Robert Burns" and when he was two years old sent him to Col. Tayloe, who trained him and changed his name to "Sir Archy." A rich bay in color, of powerful build, he was never beaten except in his first race and defeated the greatest horses of his day." Excerpt taken from "Old Chapel," Clarke County, Virginia, 1906 by Charles Randolph Hughes.
