This Lower Tidewater area of Virginia is closely knit together by the common harbor of its component communities, Hampton Roads. It is, both from the cultural and economic points of view, one of the most interesting parts of Virginia, and in those regards second to few areas of the English speaking territories of the North American continent.
Here were made some of the first explorations outside the English settle ment at Roanoke Island in 1585. Here the Colonists sent out by the London Company made their first landings in 1607, before arriving at Jamestown. Here the Anglican communion and the English common law gained their earliest footholds, second only to Jamestown, and here one of the four great corporations was laid out in 1619 and three of the eight original counties were established in 1634. Here are preserved the third oldest continuous county records in Virginia dating from 1637; here are located the two oldest existing municipalities, established by law in 1680, one of which was to be come the second of the only two chartered in Virginia before the American Revolution. Here is located, also, the oldest continuous settlement in British America, dating from 1610.
