Past Events

The first announcement was for a very successful event held on April 2, 2016, sponsored by the Governor’s Land Foundation Heritage Committee and the Virginia Society of The Order of Founders and Patriots of America. A┬áluncheon for 140 residents and representatives of several lineage societies was followed by a re-internment ceremony for the the return of the remains of one of the four English settlers discovered in 1990 in the excavation of the Company Land, the English village that existed on today’s first fairway from 1619 to 1622. The remains were sent to the Smithsonian Institution for analysis and have been identified as an English woman in her 20’s from the time period of the Company Land.
