Here is what I have about this in my notes ...

About 1641 matters became so bad between the Whites & Indians,
Chief Opechancanough was induced to agree upon a line being
established which neither White nor Indian, excepting truce-bearers,
should cross under penalty of being shot on sight.
To insure strict obedience to the compact a law was passed
at VA,Jamestown imposing a heavy penalty on any of the
people crossing the line without a special permit from the
Commissioner's Council & the General Court.

1641/12/17 The Council record shows that:
"Thomas WOLFE petitions the Governor to let him see
Opechankeno to whom he is allied & Cleopatra, his mother's sister"
(his grand-uncle & aunt).
