This copiously documented volume sheds new light on one of the earliest families to settle in Virginia, that of Captain William Tucker of London, and on a number of allied families whose progenitors figured in the early history of the Virginia and Maryland colonies. William Tucker arrived at Jamestown in 1610 on the Mary and James. He was an original stockholder in the Virginia Company of London. Captain Tucker, who resided in Elizabeth City, Virginia in 1624, is remembered as a colonial merchant and as a member of the House of Burgesses and the Privy Council. He also gained notoriety for leading reprisals against the Warrasqueake and Nansemond Indians in 1622 and 1623.
