Nearby to the north, Richard Pace and his family received a land patent in Dec. 1620 establishing Pace's Paines plantation. In response to English expansion into Indian lands, such as occurred at Pace's Paines and elsewhere. Chief Opechancanough planned a 22 Mar. 1622 coordinated offensive on English settlements. Prior to the event, Pace learned about the impending affair from a Virginia Indian living with him. Pace rowed a boat across the James River to Jamestown and told Gov. Sir Francis Wyatt of the danger. Jamestown was not attacked, but many residents of outlying plantations died in the conflict.
