Nancyann Meads, the longtime proprietor of Edwige, 333 Commercial, acquired this handsome Federal-style house in 1985 from her parents, Lawrence, a ship’s carpenter, and Nancy Meads. At its heart, it’s a floater. It had been the home of Henry Cowing when it was out on Long Point. Whether his wife, Betsey (Whorf) Cowing, lived out there is less clear, since they married in 1857, as the Long Point settlement was breaking up. The property passed from the Cowings to Martha Newcomb, to Walter Welsh, to Daniel Suker, to Catherine Snow, to the Meads family.
