COLONIAL SURRY by John B. Boddie
On Good Friday, March 22, 1622, there occurred the Great Massacre by the Indians
Richard Pace was then residing on his plantation called "Pace's Paines" on the
banks of the James, on the Surry side near the Four MileTree and Mount Pleasant plantations.
Pace, who had been living at his plantation since December 5, 1620, was instrumental in saving the lives of the Jamestown settlers..
His story is known to every school child, yet it might be well to quote from the original account published in the records of the Virginia Colony, as follows:
"The slaughter would have been universal if God had not put it into the heart of an Indian belonging to one Perry to disclose it, who living in the house of one Pace,
was urged by another Indian his brother (who came in the night and lay with him)
to kill Pace, (so commanded by their King as he declared) as he would kill Perry;
telling further by such an hour, in the morning a number would come from divers
places to finish the Execution, (who failed not at the time). Perry's Indian rose
out of his bed and revealed it to Pace who had used him as a son: And thus the
rest of the Colony that had warning given them, by this means was saved.
"Pace upon this discovery, securing his house, before day rowed over the river to James City (in that place near three miles in breadth) and gave notice thereof to the Governor, by which means they were prevented there, and at such other plantations
as was possible for a timely intelligence to be given; for where they saw us standing upon our guard, at the sight of a Piece they all ran away."
Pace was forced to leave his plantation and reside in Jamestown for safety. In the Winter of 1622, he petitioned the Governor to allow him to return to the plantation promising "to fortify and strengthen the place with a good company of able men."
The petition was granted but the brave Pace died not long afterwards, for George Pace, "son and heir apparent to Richard Pace, decd." on 1 September, 1628 received a patent "to the plantation called "Pace's Paines", granted his father 5 December, 1620; westward on land of his mother Isabella Perry; East on land of Francis Chapman now in the tenure of William Perry, gent., his father-in-law (step-father) , and north upon the main river; 100 acres due for the personal adventure of his father Richard Pace and 300 acres for the transportation of four persons."
George Pace married Sarah, a daughter of Captain Samuel Maycock, a member of the Council, who was kilied in the massacre.
Descendants of the Pace family have spread throughout the South. In the Massacre there were 347 persons killed out of a total population of 1,240 in Virginia.
MASSACRE IN VIRGINIA.
Unlike the Pilgrims in Plymouth, the English who had settled at Jamestown, Virginia, were "placed stragglingly and scatteringly. This, in part, was because they believed they were on good terms with the local Indians, whose conversion to Christianity
was one of the English colonists professed purposes in coming to America. Captain
John Smith tells what happened as a result of this overconfidence.
On the Friday morning that fatall day, being the two and twentieth of March ,
as also in the evening before, as at other times, they came unarmed into our houses, with Deere, Turkies, Fish, Fruits, and other provisions to sell us: yea in some places
sat downe at breakfast with our people, whom immediatly with their owne tooles they slew most barbarously, not sparing either age or sex, man woman or childe; so sudden in their execution, that few or none discerned the weapon or blow that brought them to destruction.
In which manner also they slew many of our people at severall works in the fields, well knowing what places and quarters each of our men were, in regard of their familiaritie with us, for the effecting that great master-peece of worke their conversion: and by this meanes fell that fatall morning under bloudy and barbarous hands of that perfidious and inhumane people, three hundred forty seven men, women and children; mostly by their own weapons. And not being content with their lives, they fell again upon the dead bodies, making as well as they could a fresh murder, defacing, dragging, and mangling their dead carkases into many peeces, and carrying some parts away in derision, with base brutish triumph. Neither yet did these beasts spare those amongst the rest well knowne unto them, from whom they had daily received many benefits; but spightfully also massacred them without any remorse or pitie....
That worthy religious Gentleman Master George Thorp ... did so truly effect their conversion, that whosoever under him did them the least displeasure, were punished severely. He thought nothing too deare for them, he never denied them anything; in
so much that when they complained that our Mastives did feare them, he to content them in all things, caused some of them to be killed in their presence, to the great displeasure of the owners, and would have had all the rest gelt to make them the milder, might he have had his will.
The King [Opechancanough] dwelling but in a Cottage, he built him a faire house
after the English fashion, in which he tooke such pleasure, especially in the locke
and key, which he so admired, as locking and unlocking his doore a hundred times a day, he thought no device in the world comparable to it.
Thus insinuating himselfe into this Kings favour for his religious purpose, he
conferred oft with him about Religion; as many other in this former Discourse
had done; and this Pagan confessed to him (as he did to them) our God was
better than theirs, and seemed to be much pleased with that Discourse, and
of his company, and to requite all those courtesies. Yet this viperous brood
did, as the sequel shewed, not onely murder him, but with such spight and
scorne abused his dead corps as is unfitting to be heard with civill eares.
Captaine Nathaniel Powell one of the first Planters, a valiant Souldier ...
they not onely slew him and his family, but butcher-like hagled their bodies,
and cut off his head, to expresse their uttermost height of cruelty.
Another of the old company of Captaine Smith, called Nathaniel Causie, being
cruelly wounded, and the Salvages about him, with an axe did cleave one of their heads, whereby the rest fled and he escaped: for they hurt not any that did either
fight or stand upon their guard.
In one place, where there was but two men that had warning of it, defended the house against sixty or more that assaulted it.
Master Baldwin at Warraskoyack, his wife being so wounded, she lay for dead; yet
by his oft discharging of his peece, saved her, his house, himselfe, and divers others.
At the same time they came to one Master Harisons house, neere halfe a mile
from Baldwines, where was Master Thomas Hamer with six men, and eighteene
or nineteene women and children.
Here the Salvages with many presents and faire perswasions, fained they came for Captain Ralfe Hamer to go to their King, then hunting in the woods: presently they sent to him, but he not comming as they expected, set fire of a Tobacco-house, and then came to tell them in the dwelling house of it to quench it; all the men ran towards
it but Master Hamer, not suspecting any thing, whom the Salvages pursued, shot
them full of arrowes, then beat out their braines.
Hamer having finished a letter hee was a writing, followed after to see what was the matter, but quickly they shot an arrow in his back, which caused him to returne and barricade up the doores, whereupon the Salvages set fire on the house. Harisons
Boy finding his Masters peece loaded, discharged it at randome, at which bare report the Salvages all fled....
But for the better understanding of all things, you must remember these wilde naked natives live not in great numbers together; but dispersed, commonly in thirtie, fortise, fiftie, or sixtie in a company. Some places have two hundred, few places more, but many lesse; yet they had all warning given them one from another in all their habitations, though farre asunder, to meet at the day and houre appointed for our destruction at all our several Plantations; some directed to one place, some to another, all to be done at the time appointed, which they did accordingly...
Six of the Counsell suffered under this treason, and the slaughter had beene universall, if God had not put it into the heart of an Indian, who lying in the house of one Pace, was urged by another Indian his Brother, that lay with him the night before, to kill Pace, as he should doe Perry which was his friend, being so commanded from their King: telling him also how the next day the execution should be finished.
Perrys Indian presently arose and reveales it to Pace, that used him as his sonne;
and thus them that escaped was saved by this one converted Infidell.
And though three hundred fortie seven were slaine, yet thousands of ours were by
the meanes of this alone thus preserved; for which Gods name be praised for ever
Pace upon this, securing his house, before day rowed to James Towne, and told the Governor of it, whereby they were prevented, and at such other Plantations as possibly intelligence could be given: and where they saw us upon our guard, at the sight of a peece they ranne away; but the rest were most slaine, their houses burnt, such Armes and Munition as they found they took away, and some cattell also they destroied.
Thus have you heard the particulars of this massacre, which in those respects some say will be good for the Plantation, because now we have just cause to destroy them
by all meanes possible....
Besides it is more easie to civilize them by conquest than faire meanes; for the one may be made at once, but their civilization will require a long time and much industry.
The manner how to suppresse them is so often related and approved, I omit it here: And you have twenty examples of the Spaniards how they got the West-Indies, and forced the treacherous and rebellious Infidels to doe all manner of drudgery worke
and slavery for them, themselves living like Souldiers upon the fruits of their labours.
