Victims of the 1622 Indian Attacks

A page in the Virginia Company of London's A Declaration of the State of the Colony and Affaires in Virginia. With a Relation of the Barbarous Massacre in the time of peace and League, treacherously executed by the Native Infidels upon the English, the 22 of March last (1622) names colonists killed at Berkeley Hundred and Westover plantations during the 1622 Indian attacks. The Berkeley Hundred list includes George Thorpe, an original investor in the plantation and a member of the governor's Council. The Westover list names six men killed at the cluster of plantations near Berkeley Hundred and controlled by the three West brothers (which is probably the origin of the name Westover).
