Notes

Microfilm of typescript collection (6 leaves).

Much of the information comes from Mrs. W. C. (Bessie Anderson) Calvert's records.

Includes the related Corker family of Virginia.

The first of the Jordans to come to America was Samuel, who came over with Sir George Somers in the "Sea Venture" in 1609. They were ship wrecked in the Bermudas, but made their way to Virginia. Jordan was a man of foresight and fortified his plantation. In 1622, there was a great Indian massacre and most of the settlers were killed. Jordan, however, successfully defended his hundred. Samuel Jordan represented Charles City at the first representative legislative Assembly in the new world at Jamestown, 3 July 1619. He died before April 1623. His son, Thomas, settled on the Isle of Wight. The Jordans became the leading Quaker family in the Isle of Wight and Nansemond.
