Just imagine though, being able to start a whole new life in a COLONY in the New World! Might have a chance to become rich with the valuables there, but for now labourers like me have work to do.
The king of England has given us a CHARTER, our council has already been established, and with captains like JOHN SMITH...
...we are just about to arrive to the New World. With around 100 men, and a number of 0 women aboard the ship, seems a little odd not to bring women as a form to help.
While things are getting settled, might as well go and scout how the area is.
We have been informed that during our arrival, the men left to scout have met a set of indians that want to trade. At first they were hostile and tried to attack the ship.
Though it seems as if this problem on our hands would be solved with the help of an Indian women named Pocahontas. Even so, we had more problems, such as attacks from the Indians, but the COLONY is still working and alive.
After many months of our arrival we have faced many challenges. As well as have our captain, JOHN SMITH, captured by the Indians.
It is also becoming difficult to continue on with this much work left due, and even so, some are getting rather very ill.
At least now this settlement is growing and even has become wealthy enough to be able to make another settlement near. Also a man by the name of John Ralfe has planted a crop that may or may not prove useful.
These starving times and attacks must eventually decrease...
At one point we even decided to abandon this settlement under the rule of Sir Thomas Gates, but during the voyage back, a man named De La Warr ordered us to return as he was bringing more supplies and people! While Sir Gates was allowed to return!
After more than a few years, and the return and "accident" of JOHN SMITH, there has been many things that have happened. With the colonists dying and new arrivals coming, this settlement keeps on going.
...we don't want to see another incident like the one more than a year ago. For people to be dead with food stuffed in their mouth, what a horrific sight to see,
Its 1636 and it has been many, many years since when that man John Ralfe had first planted that tobacco plant. A very useful crop that has brang Jamestown fortunes. That man also helped with that peace treaty with the indians. It seems has if just the day before was when the HOUSE OF BURGESSESS was formed. As well as the PILGRIMS settling in Plymouth, with WILLIAM BRADFORD as governor, and Virginia now known as a ROYAL COLONY by King James.
With many more colonies being created such as that of Massachusetts Bay, governed by PURITAN JOHN WINTHROP, Maryland and its founder CECIL CALVERT (it is a PROPRIETARY COLONY), and the Carolina colonies...
...There was also that colony, Rhode Island, founded by ROGER WILLIAMS for TOLERATION of other religions. With the help of that women that was banished in Massachusetts named ANNE HUTCHINSON.
Being one of the first settlement's survivors from 1607 , coming to this "New World" I had it very rough at the age of 14. I am 89 now, lived longer than a regular person would have and the original settlers as most lived up to 1636 or 1639. With new colonies still being created such as Delaware (named after De La Warr, the man that made us turn back), New Hampshire, New York, and the newest one, Pennsylvania, founded by a QUAKER named WILLIAM PENN.
With the different events that have happened it looks like my journey is about to end. Many of these events are very memorable
Events like the rebellion of NATHANIEL BACON that happened around the same time as the war with the Indians in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. It seems as though we can never completely make a permanent peace treaty with the Indians.
