Anne Howson was the daughter of Robert Howson of the early colonial Virginia Alexandria area. Robert Howson patented in 1669 6000 acres that are now part of the city of Alexandria. Anne married first Captain Robert Massie; as a widow, she married Rice (also known as Rhuys) Hooe. Rice Hooe patented one thousand acres of land in King George County, Virginia Colony, and erected "a fine colonial residence known as 'Barnesfield.'" Rice Hooe was, at an unidentified time, a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses; he was a vestryman for Overwharton parish from 1700 to 1703. He was promoted from the rank of Captain to Lieutenant Colonel in the colonial militia. Rice (Rhuys) Hooe died in 1758. Seven generations of Hooe "lie buried at 'Barnesfield.'"
