Frances Delespine Boye' estimated 1850s
After the big freeze in 1886, Capt Pritchard's family moved from the grant into Titusville, and in 1891 Capt built our family home that is now the Pritchard House Museum. Frank Boye' & family stayed on the Grant. Franks' home was built of the same material used to in the Castillo de San Marco in St Augustine, and my grandfather talked about helping him build it. The house was located where La Marimba now stands. It was torn down when US1 was widened to 4 lanes.
When you consider the Delespine Grant was awarded to Joseph Delespine in 1817, his descendants may have the earliest connection to Brevard County.
