Isle of Wight History
The beautiful town of Isle of Wight got its name from the Isle of Wight in the Solent. This strait separated the Isle of Wight from the mainland of England, which is where many of Newport News' early settlers originated.
In 1608 Captain John Smith crossed the James River, where he received 14 bushels of corn from the Warrosquyoack tribe. 19 years later, the English colonists drove the Warrosquyoack from their villages, as part of their revenge for the Great Massacre of 1622.
Puritan colonists began to establish the first English Plantations along the south shore, where the present-day Isle of Wight now stands. By 1634 the Virginia Colony consisted of eight shires and had a population of about 5,000 people.
In the 17th Century, St. Luke's Church was built and is now Virginia's oldest church building. It became a National Historic Landmark in the 20th century.
