Transcript of James and Chazzer
Types of people
About half of the men of the Virginia Company were wealthy gentlemen and personal servants. There were a few farmers and artisans on the ship, but not enough workers to grow the food that the men would need. These men probally intended to survive by hunting, gathering berries and roots, and by trading or taking food from Indians.
At first he settlers were having a tough time at first but then John smith made an agreement with the natives who taught them to grow corn. Later John Rolfe introduced tobacco which became a major cash crop and saved the economy.
Virginians did not cross the Atlantic Ocean to create either a place where different religious faiths would be encouraged. In Virginia, they didn't expect that church and state would be separate. The initial Virginia colonists were not anti-religious, they considered religion to be a fundamental part of life and government. They assumed the church would be the "established" church, supported by taxes that were imposed by governmental authority.
Who founded it and why
In 1666, a group of wealthy men petitioned King James to allow them to establish a colony. They formed the Virginia company and went to establish a colony. In 1607, 104 men traveled from England and arrived near Chesapeake bay. They traveled up the James River to establish a settlement. They were expecting to easily intimidate the natives and get resources from them but they were not so easy to take from. They established a fort and called it Jamestown in honor king James. The lack of clean water, the fact that Jamestown was built on swampland, the lack of food, and the men’s inability to grow food all contributed to a lot of death.
