- Hi Dorothy and others. There are two properties called Lufkins. The
ruin of Old Lufkins is near Thompsons Wood, quite some distance south
from Jamestown. John LUFKIN was responsible for the construction of
this house and the other situated near Plantation House, but actually
closer to Broadcasting House. LUFKIN was taken hostage by the
Dennison mutineers of 1684 and was released, accused of conspiracy,
but was later pardoned.
