Travel Tips for Hampton

Appreciate the history

by Yaqui

William Claiborne - He emigrated to Virginia in 1621 as official surveyor and then served as secretary of state (1626 to 37 and 1652 to 60) of that colony. He traded with the Native Americans, explored near the head of Chesapeake Bay, and established a fort and settlement on Kent Island in the Chesapeake. He opposed the grant of Maryland to Lord Baltimore, and after Baltimore's order (1634) for his arrest, Claiborne undertook armed resistance from his stronghold. Claiborne went (1637) to England to justify his conduct, but the issue was decided in favor of Lord Baltimore. In 1642, Claiborne was made treasurer of Virginia, and several years later, claiming the authority of Parliament, he invaded Maryland and drove out the governor, Leonard Calvert. He controlled Maryland for several years and was a member (1652 to 57) of its governing commission.Retrieved from yahooWilliam Claiborne I did enjoy the people very much because they were all very friendly and helpful. The weather stunk and the traffic was often burdensome at time.

The City of Hampton
Hampton's Vistor Center

The City of Hampton got it's simple beginning by being part of "Hampton Roads". This is a centuries-old reference that originated when the region was a struggling British outpost nearly 400 years ago. Designated in the 17th Century as the name of the largest natural harbor where the James, Nansemond and Elizabeth Rivers pour into the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. Hampton Roads honors one of the founders of the Virginia Company and a great supporter of the colonization of Virginia, Henry Wriothesley, the third Earl of Southampton. Signifying the safety of a port, "roads" in nautical terminology means "a place less sheltered than a harbor where ships may ride at anchor."
