The Rochelle–Prince House is a historic home located at Courtland, Southampton County, Virginia. The original section dates to about 1814. The house consists of a 1 1/2-half-story, two-bay block attached to a two-story, three-bay block. The house was enlarged and remodeled between 1826 and 1827 and a rear ell was added about 1900.[3]

James Rochelle was clerk of the Southampton County court during the trial of Nat Turner. His nephew was George Henry Thomas, a Union general in the American Civil War.[4]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2011.[1]
