OLD HOMES IN BOURBON

"Walnut Lea", William Stamps Home on Georgetown Pike, near Paris, Kentucky. Built in 1823. Data co-piled by Miss Elizabeth B. Grime., Historian Jenima Johnson Chapter’, D. A. R.. published in the Friday, September 21, 1954 issue or the Kentuckian-Citizen.


Walnut Lea, the Stamps home, is situated two and one half miles from Paris on the Georgetown Pike. The earliest records of Bourbon County show that the land on which this homestead was established belonged to Robert Whitledge, a revolutionary Soldier. He and his wife, Nancy Whitledge, conveyed it to James Morin on Jan. 9, l787, while Kentucky was still a part of Virginia. Soon after James Morin and his wife, Jane Shore Morin, settled here, the Indians killed an entire family on the farm of U. S. Senator John Edwards, just back of this place and tradition says James Morin and wife hourly expected the return of the Indians and were armed for defense.
James Morin was killed in felling a tree. His widow married William Stamps who built the present house in 1823 An article of agreement between William Stamps and Enoch Hughes and Henry Leer who were to do the carpenter work on the houss is still in existance. It recites "the main body of the house to be two stories high with one room 20 feet by 20 in the clear’ and a passage at one end 10 ft by 20 in the clear with one pair of stairs; a and six windows with 24 lights each 3 by 10 and six panel doors and four presses and two chimney pieces, also an ell 56 ft by 5 by 10, three panel doors and two presses and two chimney pieces and six grates and two cellar doors; also the said Hughes and Leer to get the shingles and hew the rafters with the exception of cutting and sawing the blocks for the shingles which the said Stamps is to do for them, also the said Hughes and Leer to get the timber for the window frames out of Locust and prepar the finish in a plain, neat and workmanlike manner, with venetian shutters to every window. The bill for’ plastering the house has also been preserved. A beautiful carved mantel stands in the main room. The floors are of ash.
Unusual features are the two little rooms of brick built over the entrances to the cellars and standing under the long side porch. On the death of William Stamps in l855 his Granddaughter, Elizabeth Ewalt Hedges, aquired the old home. The next year she added three rooms to the orlinal house. It is in a good state of preservation and is now occupied by a descendant, Mrs. Georg L. Clayton (Ann McMil1an Talbott). The name “Walnut Lea" was given to the place on account of the many walnut trees and the level land.
Gov. Thomas Metcalfe spent many nights here with his first cousin, William Stamps, while enrout from his home in Nichclas County to the Executive Mansion in Fankfort, the trip being too long to take by carriage in one day. Joseph and Jefferson Davis were often guests in the home, their sister having married the oldest son of William Stamps.
