Our Ancestors

First Mississippi Company Member Ancestors

First Mississippi Company members write a brief biographical sketch of their qualifying ancestor with the assistance of the Company historian when they join the company. Thirty-six of these sketches have been posted on the Jamestowne Society’s website under “Blog.” The purpose of the sketches is for members to share with the public and one another information about our ancestors that flesh out their lives and to promote interest in some of the early settlers of the first permanent English settlement in North America.
