Joshua Fairlamb

To the east of Maxton Creek ( Ortega River ) and south of Maxton Island a tract was granted to Joshua Fairlamb that was not developed during the British years. Fairlamb came to East Florida to manage the plantation interests of Richard Oswald at Tomoka Creek south of St. Augustine. He was also the man responsible for constructing the King's Road between the Cowford and St. Augustine. Fairlamb acquired a 1,000-acre tract west of the St. Johns River that is today the northern portion of Jacksonville Naval Air Station.
