By Nov. 1621, Edward Bennett had obtained a patent from the Virginia Company to establish Bennett's Plantation, also known as Warrascoyack and Bennett's Welcome. By Feb. 1622, the Sea Flower arrived with the first residents and they began settling the south bank of the James River at the lower reaches of Burwell's Bay. On 22 Mar. 1622, the Powhatan-English War of 1622-1632 began with attacks coordinated by Chief Opechancanough against many English settlements including Bennett's Plantation. More than 50 colonists died there and the survivors were transported to Jamestown. Bennett's Plantation was reestablished by June 1623.
