John Smith in New England
Written by Various Authors
Capt. John Smith
(1580 - 1631)
Besides his role in Jamestown, Virginia, John Smith is critical to the history of New England. He named the region in his 1614 map. And long after Pocahontas and other adventures, Smith intended to return and found a colony here, perhaps along the Piscataqua River. He named our Isles of Shoals "Smyth Isles" and attempted, in vain, to come back. That story is the focus of our Smith section on SeacoastNH.
