Birth: 1578
Wiltshire, England
Death: Apr., 1623
Prince George County
Virginia, USA

His father is Richard Jordan. Believe the family came to England from France. Samuel arrived to Jamestown 25 July 1610. He was in the first Colony. He arrived before the Mayflower ship. His wife had died before he came to Jamestown, Virginia. He had three sons with her. He was a member of the first assembly in 1619. He had two plantations. He had 20 slaves. He paid the boat fare for the people who wanted to come to America but couldn't afford to on their own. They worked out their fares on his plantations. I understand that it took three years before they could earn their freedom. If you want more information just type in his name on your computer. Lots of pictures. He was buried on his property. His sons were Samuel Jordan Jr. 1608 England-1632 in Virginia, USA. Thomas Jordan 1600 in England-10 August 1644 Isle of Wight, Virginia, USA. Robert Jordan 1598 England-22 March 1622 Virginia, USA. Robert was killed by Indians at his fathers home. Samuel remarried in Virginia. He had two daughters with this wife. Samuel was a neighbor to Pocahontas Powhatan an Indian Princess. Who's great great granddaughter Mary Boiling married John Fleming. John is the brother in law of a descended grandson Samuel Jordan, who married Elizabeth Fleming.
