After the English defeated the Dutch in 1666, Captain John Manning seized the island, which became known as Manning's Island, and twenty years later, Manning's son-in-law, Robert Blackwell, became the island's new owner and namesake.
In 1796, Blackwell's great-grandson Jacob Blackwell constructed the Blackwell House. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
