    Kingsmill History

    When the English stepped foot in Virginia, it was the grounds of Kingsmill that served as a central part of the area’s plantation life. In 1607, Captain Gabriel Archer commanded one of the first English sailing ships to navigate the James River. Records show that Archer would have established the first English settlement on the land now known as Kingsmill had the water been three feet deeper near the shoreline. Instead, he settled slightly farther up the river at Jamestown.

    Less than a century after the Jamestown settlers arrived, there were plantations on the land. In 1736, one was named for the earliest owner of the land–Richard Kingsmill. Today, some outbuildings of this plantation still stand near a prehistoric Indian campsite.
