The owner

John S. Winthrop was a native of New Bern, North Carolina. Information shows that in 1860, Winthrop was still a legal minor. Due to the SS Home wreck of 1837, Winthrop was due to receive a large property inheritance originally going to Henrietta Smith, his great-grandmother and mother of the deceased Mrs. Hardy Croom of Goodwood Plantation. John Winthrop, like other planters, would feel the effects of the American Civil War and lose plantation land. Winthrop eventually built a fine home in Tallahassee in 1890.
