17th Century Jails #genealogy #history #virginiapioneersnet

Old Jails
By Jeannette Holland Austin

The local tavern frequently substituted for a jail in Northampton County as early as 1645. It was almost two decades later before the county prison consisted of a house known as the "new store", belonging to Capt. William Jones and standing near the site of his residence, was used. And for its use, the court allowed him 600 pds. of tobacco from year to year. A change was apparently made before the end of 1664, since a part of the court-house was serving (at that time) as a jail. However, there was no permanent custodian chosen to prevent prisoners from escaping and it was necessary for the sheriff, being held responsible, to appoint a special guardian. Source: Northampton County Records, Orders Nov. 7, 1645; vol. 1657-64, p. 19.

What is a "Magazine Ship?" #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet #history

The Magazine Ship
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Magazine ShipThe affairs of the Magazine were administered by a director (of the London Company) who was assisted by a committee of five councillors and the accounts thereof were required to be passed upon by auditors specially nominagted at a Quarter Court. This means that the adventurers held separate meetiings when all routine business was transacted. At this time, no outside trader could send supplies into the Colony. The first ships had carried supplies to the Colony as well as a large number of persons who proposed to reside in Virginia. After the year of 1619, the vessel which conveyed articles and supplies into the Jamestown settlement were called a magazine ship. The articles purchased by the adventurers who entered into a joint stock (known as the magazine) were conveyed by the magazine ship and its loading was confined to goods and a few men who were appointed to take charge of them both before and after their arrival at Jamestown. The first magazine ship was the Susan, a small vessel whose cargo was restricted to clothing (of which the Colony stood in great need). The goods of the Susan were placed in the care of Abraham Piersey as Cape Merchant, both during the voyage and after Virginia was reached. The only commodities produced in the Colony assuring a profit when sold in England were tobacco and sassafras, which was exchanged for the contents of the magazine vessel.
