Portions of Windsor Castle and its former plantation are now part of a 208-acre public park overlooking the Pagan River in the town of Smithfield.

Originally, this area was occupied by the Warraskoyack Indians. There is archaeological evidence of activity in front of the house close to the river.

On Sept. 10, 1637, Arthur Smith patented 1,450 acres of land in Isle of Wight County, formerly known as Warraskoyack Shire. The property was described as “a neck of land running S.E. along a creek behind Pagan Shore.”

Arthur Smith I was the third son of Arthur Smith of Blackmore, Essex, England. His date of arrival to Virginia is unknown, but he did represent the district at the House of Burgesses from 1644 to 1645. He had five children: Thomas, Arthur, Richard, Jane and George. Smith died in 1645, and asked to be “buried in the garden by my late and beloved wife.”

Archaeologists have yet to find evidence of the first house on the 159-acre tract where the current house, outbuildings and cemetery sit.
