Pocahontas marries John Rolfe
- Pocahontas, daughter of the chief of the Powhatan Indian confederacy, marries English tobacco planter John Rolfe in Jamestown, Virginia.

- About 100 English colonists settled along the James River in Virginia to found Jamestown in May 1607, the first permanent English settlement in America.
- The settlers fared badly because of famine, disease, and Indian attacks, but were aided by 27-year-old English adventurer John Smith, who directed survival efforts and mapped the area.
