1606 - 1907

To the glory of God and in memory of the Reverend Robert Hunt, Presbyter. appointed by the Church of England, minister of the colony which established the English Church and English civilization at Jamestown, Virginia in 1607, his people, members of the colony, left this testimony concerning him. He was an honest religious and courageous divine. He preferred the service of God in so good a voyage to every thought of ease at home. He endured every privation, yet none ever heard him repine. During his life, our factions were oft healed and our greatest extremities so comforted that they seemed easy in comparison with what we endured. After his memorable death, we all received from him the Holy Communication together as a pledge of reconciliation for we all loved him for his exceeding goodness. He planted the first Protestant Church in America and laid down his life in the foundation of Virginia.
