George Percy's "Trewe Relacyon": A Primary Source for the Jamestown Settlement - George Percy's "Trewe Relacyon" is perhaps the most important documentary source for three crucial years in the very early history of the Jamestown settlement, England's first successful and enduring colony in the New World. Beginning in 1609, the work chronicles the deprivations and miseries that beset the colony under the brief presidency of Percy himself, and his immediate successors, concluding with Percy's arduous voyage home to England in 1612, after five and a half years in America. The account focuses on a period dismissed briskly on by Percy's great antagonist, Capt. John Smith, in his better-known histories of the subject. Through this document, printed below, we glimpse the grim foundation of the colony through the eyes of one of the few other early participants to leave a firsthand account.



Games/Webquests:>


Jamestown Online Adventure - In 1606, some 105 adventurers set off from England to try and establish the first permanent English colony in the New World. They settled in what is now the state of Virginia and called their colony first James Fort, and then James Towne, in honor of James I, the King of England. The early years of the colony were nearly a total disaster. Almost half of the settlers died due to poor choices in settlement location, management of resources, and quarrels with the indigenous Powhatan Indians. Your are the Captain of the Jamestown Colony
