page 34
In early January 1608, a devastating fire swept through James Cittie. April 10th another 40 settlers arrived. About nine months later, 70 new immigrants landed at Jamestown. Among them were Mrs. Thomas Forrest and her maid, Anne Burras, who married laborer John Laydon. Their union marked the beginning of family life in Virginia.
