i definitely learned some history on this thread. thanks for sharing.
I am currently writing a story about my ancestor, Ricward Pace. This historical story is to be placed in our family book when it is published. Will include a few paragraphs that fit into this thread: Richard and Isabella Pace were "ancient planters" in the Jamestown area. Their plantation was four miles from Jamestown, across the James River.

Richard and Isabella Pace took in a young Indian boy named, “Chanco”, Possibly as a companion for their son, George. While living with the Pace family, he was educated along with his own son, George. He was also schooled in the Christian religion.

Around the evening of March 20, 1622, Chanco’s brother came to the Pace house for a visit. He told Chanco the Indians were planning to attack the white settlers. He had been sent to tell Chanco he was expected to kill the Pace family. Chanco was torn between the loyalty to his Indian ancestors and the love he had for the Pace family. According to legend, Chanco knew well the teachings of the Christian religion taught him murder was a sin. With a heavy heart, he alerted the Pace family of the impending Indian attack. After securing his home and seeing his family was in a safe place, he set out to warn the citizens of Jamestown. In the dead of night, he crept down to the James River and paddled his canoe three miles to the Jamestown side. He ran to the sleeping town to sound the alarm. The colonists quickly prepared for the Indian raid.

Sadly, the news of the Indian attack did not reach the outlying settlements. This included the Isle of Wight and it’s 31 plantations. These settlements were essentially outposts of Jamestown, Almost all of the plantations were destroyed. 341 men, women and children were killed. Richard Pace was killed soon after the massacre.

No documentation has been found for his death. "Richard died in his late thirties, possibly in a raid against the Chickahominy Indians. One other interesting note:

The Rev Maycock and his wife were murdered. Following the massacre,the citizens of Jamestown traveled from home to home burying the bodies of the dead. Richard Pace was in the party. The four month, infant daughter of Samuel Maycock, Sarah, was found alive. Family legend says the baby girl was hidden by her mother. Richard's only son, George Pace married Sarah Maycock.

Thank you for the little bit of history. I never heard that before. Welcome to the forums as well.

I refer you to the book "MARTIN'S HUNDRED" written by the archologist that excavated the site and whose name I have forgotten ,he worked for Colonial Williamsburg.
My reading of this book makes me think that the Matins Hundres site fell victim to Colonial success as subsequent groups of settlers came on.
That by the turn of the next century the event was all but forgotten and the plantaion thats is still there started. A sad irony for a place that
dhould rival Jamestown or Boston.

I read that once while visiting Williamsburg and Jamestown a few years ago. Wasn't it Wolstenholme town and there was a really good specimen of full face helmet found that also took the name?

They had a very detailed theory of what happened on the site that day in 1622. It was well worth the afternoon visit.

Wolstenholme town is the site of Martins Hundred , the Carter mansion
they are all the same site. The author of MARTINS HUNDREDs was Noel Hume .
