It was from here that the first successful English settlers embarked when they sailed to found Jamestown in Virginia America.
A commemorative monument to the settlers of Virginia. It is situated on the River Thames at Virginia Quay, formerly known as Brunswick Wharf. It was set up in 1999 and is the work of Wendy Taylor. It was made using stones from the old quay capped by a sculptured astrolab, a tool used in 17th century navigation.
First Families of Virginia were those families in Colonial Virginia who were European, socially prominent and wealthy, but not necessarily the earliest settlers. They descended from English colonists who primarily settled at Jamestown, Williamsburg, and along the James River and other navigable waters in Virginia during the 17th century.
The monument replaces an earlier one, which was a tablet set up at Brunswick House and which was presented by the people of Virginia in 1928.
