In the early 1800's John Dundas, Thomas Dundas, Henry Thompson Dundas and Eliza Dundas, sons and daughter of John and Agnes Dundas of Philadelphia and Alexandria migrated to Western Virginia. John Dundas settled at Barboursville, whilst Thomas Dundas, Henry Thompson Dundas and Eliza Dundas settled at Blue Sulphur Springs.
These Dundas' were among the first pioneers of Western Virginia. They acquired and settled on large tracts of virgin land. Prior to settling in this practically unknown land, they had prospered in the East and each had a considerable fortune. Thomas Dundas and his sister Eliza founded a homestead near Blue Sulphur Springs. Adjoining this estate Henry Thompson Dundas settled in a beautiful Colonial home. They all took great pride in the growing community. They donated the land and built the first church at Blue Sulphur Springs, known as "Mud River Church".
