Did you know that Jamestown settlers were not ment to settle here? The first set of settlers were just men and boyes. The Virginia Company sent them here to find gold and then return home back in England. They came up the James River then settled in Jamestown. They named the river and town after King James. (Jamestown and the James River.) They named the state Virginia after the Virginia Company. Captain John Smith was the captain of the ship, the Susan Conxton. He made the settlers work or they would not be allowed to eat. Chief Powhatan was the enemy. He even captured Captain John Smith! John Rolfe married Pochantas to settle these matters. Captain John Smith then started trade with Chief Powhatan. He would trade most objects exept guns and other wepons in case if they became enemies again. Captain John Smith had to go back to England because of gunpowder injuries.
