The Jamestowne Society

The Jamestowne Society, a hereditary and genealogical organization, was incorporated in Richmond, Virginia, in 1958. Its membership is composed of those individuals who can document a line of descent from one of the 1500+ qualifying colonists of Jamestowne, the first permanent English colony in North America.

The Jamestowne Society is dedicated to discovering and recording the names of all living descendants of those early Jamestowne settlers who made the great sacrifice to establish our English-speaking nation.

The Little Rock Company

The Little Rock Company of the Jamestowne Society meets regularly to support the national organization, foster ties of friendship and promote an awareness of the unique importance of our ancestors and their significance in the history of our nation.

We also contribute financial support for ongoing archaeological projects on the island where our ancestors lived and worked.
