Question on Joane Jordan and association with Samuel Jordan at Jordan's Journey..
Prior to 1619, Native Americans occupied this prominent peninsula along the upper James River, now called Jordanís Point. Arriving in Jamestown by 1610, Samuel Jordan served in July 1691 in Jamestown as a burgess for Charles City in the New Worldís oldest legislative assembly. A year later, he patented a 450-acre tract here known first as Beggarís Bush and later as Jordanís Journey. He survived the massive Powhatan Indian attack of March 1622 here at his plantation, a palisaded fort that enclosed 11 buildings. He remained at Jordanís Journey with his wife, Cicely, and their daughters until his death i n 1623.
Interesting that Jordan's Journey was where Thomas and Joane lived in 1622 . Could Joane have been some sort of relative of Samuel Jordan's?
