Virginia Co. - Formerly Plymouth Company and London Company... [Two joint-stock companies...] Established in 1606 by John I, specifically to establish "settlements" on the coast of North America... Virginia International Trade Alliance [VITAL]... LOL... _______________________________________ The London Company (also called the Virginia Company of London) was established in 1606 by royal charter by King James I with the purpose of establishing colonial settlements in North America... The London Company encamped at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, which they named Cape Henry. Deciding to move the encampment, on 4 May 1607, they established the Jamestown Settlement on the James River about 40 miles upstream at the Chesapeake Bay... Later the charter for the London Company was adjusted with a new grant that extended from "sea to sea" of the previously-shared area between the 38th and 40th parallel. _______________________________________ The Plymouth Company was an English joint-stock company founded in 1606 by James I of England. It was a company of Knights, merchants, adventurers, and planters of the cities of Bristol, Exeter and Plymouth. Its purpose was establishing settlements on the coast of North America, between 38 and 45 degrees north latitude, within 100 miles of the seaboard. The merchants agreed to finance the settlers’ trip in return for repayment of their expenses plus interest out of the profits made. In 1620, after years of disuse, the company was revived and reorganized as the Plymouth Council for New England. With a new charter, the New England Charter of 1620. The Plymouth Company had 40 patentees at that point, and established the Council for New England to oversee their efforts, but it stopped operating in 1624; that was when these former plantations were dissolved and became Royal Colonies. _______________________________________ Based and instituted on "monopolies"... "In Renaissance England, wealthy merchants were eager to find investment opportunities, so they established several companies to trade in various parts of the world. Each company was made up of investors, known as "adventurers", who purchased shares of company stock. The Crown granted a charter to each company with a monopoly to explore, settle, or trade with a particular region of the world. Profits were shared among the investors according to the amount of stock that each owned. More than 6,300 Englishmen invested in joint-stock companies between 1585 and 1630, trading in Russia, Turkey, Africa, the East Indies, the Mediterranean, and North America." _______________________________________ exactum per breve de private sigillo Hereafter per Writ of Private Signature Giving of a signature is compliance with a monopolizing system of commerce... _______________________________________ _______________________________________
