    Residence George Mason III bought Barbadoes Island from Francis Hammersly in 1717, and the island came to be known as Mason\'s Island. George Mason gave the island to his fourth son John Mason in 1792. Since John Mason always referred to the island as Analostan Island it came to be known by that name. During the 1790s, John ordered a summer home built there. After financial troubles, the bank foreclosed the island and John\'s Georgetown property in 1833. John Mason then moved to Clermont, a 320-acre (1.3 kmĀ²) property he had recently acquired, where he spent the rest of his life.[37][38]  [1

    The Nacotchtank Indians, formerly of what is now Anacostia (in Washington, D.C.), temporarily moved to the island in 1668, giving its first recorded name, \"Anacostine\". The island was patented in 1682 as Anacostine Island by Captain Randolph Brandt (or Brunett), who left the island to his daughter Margaret Hammersley, upon his death in 1698 or 1699.[5][6] The island was acquired by George Mason III in 1724.[7] George Mason IV acquired the island in 1735 upon the death of his father and John Mason, the son of George Mason IV, inherited the Island in 1792 and owned it until 1833.[5] John Mason built a mansion around 1796 and planted gardens there in the early 19th century. The Masons left the island in 1831 when a causeway stagnated the water.
