This paper takes a look at the early English settlements in America around Chesapeake Bay and Virginia when the conflict between the Indians and the English settlers had seriously depleted the number of settlers. The Virginia Company, which had started growing tobacco to support the settlements, knew that some way had to be found to increase the number of settlers otherwise the New World would be lost. England was going through trying times under Oliver Cromwell and the War of the Three Kingdoms, with many people wanting to leave for a better life. A system of indentured servitude was introduced to assist new settlers from Europe and England into the Chesapeake Bay settlements. Jane was such a settler who was indentured in her early twenties and released at about 24, when she married and built herself a farm. This paper tells her story and the story of her times.
