>From the documents mentioned above on John Jarboe alias John Parks:

Have not been able to find any data that supports when John Jarboe landed in
One could speculate that he landed around Elizabeth City, VA area on a
British ship.
Most likely setting ashore at the Fort at Point Comfort, at the entrance of
the James River.
Elizabeth City, VA began as the Plantation of Kecoughtan, in recognition of
one of the peaceful
tribe that inhabited the lower peninsula between the James & York Rivers.
John Jarboe could of became involved with the Virginia Company in London and
most likely
came to the colonies in the 1640s. Jamestown, the first English colony was
establish in 1607,
and Plantation Kecoughtan in 1610, which in distance was not far down river.
