The First Christian Marriage in the New Colony of Virginia #genealogy #history #virginiapioneersnet

Preservation Project: Nansemond River, Chuckatuck Creek, Bennett's Creek and tributaries
While discoveries were being made by Captain Smith, some person attempted to desert the settlement and run away with the small vessel which was left. Meanwhile, in 1609, John Laydon and Anna Burrows were married together, which was the first Christian marriage in that part of the world.  A year later, the plantation had increased to near five hundred men. Jamestown sent out people, and made two other settlements; one at Nansemond in James river, above thirty miles below Jamestown, and the other at Powhatan, six miles below the falls of James river, (which last was bought of Powhatan for a certain quantity of copper,) each settlement consisting of about a hundred and twenty men. Some small time after another was made at Kiquotan by the mouth of James river.
More information concerning early settlers to Virginia, their adventures and origins, is found under "Origins" and available to members of Virginia Pioneers
