The World of Pocahontas Pocahontas and John Rolfe

In honor of the 400th anniversary of Pocahontas and John Rolfe’s 1614 wedding, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and Preservation Virginia, in collaboration with the Pamunkey Indian Museum and Cultural Center and the Patawomeck Heritage Foundation, are hosting a series of public programs, lectures, and a new exhibit at Historic Jamestowne.

On April 5, 2014, visitors had the opportunity to experience Pocahontas’s marriage to Englishman John Rolfe at the original site where the wedding took place. In 2010, archaeologists uncovered the location of the 1608 church in James Fort, the site of the 1614 marriage.

Meet Captain Brewster, "Capt. of the Guard" at James Fort, and learn about life at England's first permanent colony in the New World. Brewster was commander of the 50 halberdiers brought to Virginia in 1610 by its new governor, Lord De La Warr. Since his arrival, Captain Brewster's role and his view on the survival of the colony have changed. Learn what advice he has for new settlers. What does he think about the possibilities of Spanish reprisals? Also, meet some of the Jamestown Rediscovery archaeologists and learn of new discoveries and the current fort excavations. When you visit the Nathalie P. and Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium, look for the ceremonial halberd associated with Lord De la Warr's arrival.

First Assembly Day
Step into the Memorial Church and take on roles to re-create events that occurred during the historic first meetings of the House of Burgesses in 1619. Over six days of unbearably hot, humid weather the "burgesses" petitioned for some minor changes in the settlement of land tenure, approved the "Greate Charter" of 1618 (which had allowed for the assembly's creation), and adopted measures against drunkenness, idleness, and gambling. Other matters discussed included personal conduct of the settlers, land ownership, crop selection, and relations with the Powhatan Indians. The assembly also discussed a proposal for individual initiation of legislation and passed a tax law requiring every man and servant in the colony to pay the officers of the assembly "one pound of the best Tobacco" for their services during the hot, midsummer season.
