In the 1580’s, the Choanoac,/Chowanoke people were the largest of the Carolina Algonquian nations, and they controlled all of what is now the Chowan River. Chowan Discovery’s Marvin T. Jones, a Chowanoke descendant, will lecture about the history of ancestors of many people in the Hertford County area.
On June 20 at 1pm, this lecture is hosted by Bacon’s Castle, a 350+ year-old house in Surry, Virginia. Chowan Discovery thanks Joanna Braswell for the invitation. Please visit the link of today’s Chowanoke people, the link for Chowanoke descendants, and the link for the Chowanoke reservation in Gates County.
