Weyanoke Indians, part of the Powhatan Chiefdom, occupied Jordan's Point, around two miles north on the James River, when English colonists arrived in 1607. There, about 1620, Samuel Jordan settled; the place was called Jordan's Journey. By 1625, his widow Cicely and more than 50 other people resided there in some 15 households within a fortified compound. More than a century later, Richard Bland (1710-1776), member of the First Continental Congress, lived there. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, excavations at Jordan's Point revealed one of the richest arrays of prehistoric and historic archaeological sites in Virginia.
