About 1617, Deputy Governor Samuel Argall established a settlement on 300 acres near here. Situated on land that had been formerly inhabited by the Paspahegh Indians, the group of dispersed buildings was incorporated into the 3,000-acre Governor's Land tract. John Rolfe reported in 1619 that the settlers had "good & convenyent houses" and that they had "done best of all New-Comers." Nevertheless by 1627 the residents had petitioned to leave the area because of exhausted soil, decayed houses, and difficulty in defending the settlement from attack.
