Further information on this digital resource can be found on our website www.amdigital.co.uk.

"The papers will transform the way we look at the early period. There are many discussions of issues of economic development and political controversies, as well as fascinating new material on relations with neighbouring Indians."

Professor Karen Ordhal Kupperman
Department of History, New York University

This is an essential source for the study of the Atlantic World and Early Colonial Period. It documents:

  • the founding and economic development of Virginia as seen through the papers of the Virginia Company of London, 1606-1624.
  • the  continuing interest in the Ferrar family in the settlement of North America from Jamestown to the Bermudas.
  • trade between Britain and America.
  • the ethnic and gender composition of early Virginia.
  • tensions amongst the colonists and of early relations with Native Americas.

It is also a cruical source for London's economic history in the Early Modern era and will be of interest to social and religious historians.
