Pierce, Jane -- 1587 Colonist roster (seems to be a single female)

 

In the year 1587, Sir Walter Raleigh organized another colonial expedition consisting of 150 persons. Its truer colonizing character was evidenced by the significant facts that, unlike the expedition of 1585, this one included women and children, and the men were called "planters." Its government was also less military, since the direction of the enterprise in Virginia was to be in the hands of a syndicate of subpatentees--a governor and 12 assistants whom Raleigh incorporated as the "Governor and Assistants of the Citie of 

Ralegh in Virginia.  "From the list of names that has come down to us, it would appear that at least 10 of the planters took their wives with them. Altogether there were at least 17 women and 9 children in the group that arrived safely in Virginia. (Seven women appear to be single or unescorted )

Pierce, Jane -- 1587 Colonist roster (seems to be a single female)

 


"From the list of names that has come down to us, it would appear that at least 10 of the planters took their wives with them.Altogether there were at least 17 women and 9 children in the group that arrived safely in Virginia. (Seven females were either single or unescorted).

 

From Roberta Estes:

 

Jane Pierce. In Ireland Henry Piers, who died in 1623, had been married to Jane Jones. Could Jane Pierce have been their daughter and related to Griffin, Jane, and John Jones who were also among the Lost Colonists?

Another interesting possibility also exists. In 1568 one Jone Pierse, a Portuguese, registered as an alien in London. She was the sister of Simon and Fornando and a tenant of Frauncis White's. Simon, Fornando, and White all sound familiar when spoken in connection with the Roanokers.
