    Age 5
    The Virginia Company founded the first permanent English colony at Jamestown in 1607. One of the original 13 states (it entered the Union in 1788). Virginia holds an important place in American history, as it was home to many of the founding fathers, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Mason, and Patrick Henry. Four of Americas first five presidents were Virginians. During the Civil War, Richmond, Virginias capital, was the capital of the Confederacy. Today, Virginia is a popular tourist spot where people can visit historic places such as Alexandria, Williamsburg, and Mount Vernon, George Washingtons estate.

The Mayflower set sail from Plymouth, England, with 102 passengers, 40 of whom called themselves ""Saints."" After two stormy months at sea, the ship reached the New World. Nearly half of the group died during their first winter due to malnutrition and the harsh New England winter."

    A series of conflicts regarding England's governance during the years 1642 to 1651 is now known as The English Civil War. Charles I summoned supporters to join him against his enemies in Parliament. In October 1642, nearly 10,000 men fought for Charles I and chased Parliament across the River Tamar. Fighting continued for years and was finally ended at the Battle of Worcester on September 3, 1651, with a Parliamentarian victory.

    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name for a blood-letter, based on the Middle English verb bloden ‘to let blood’. The usual Middle English terms for this occupation were bloodletter or blooder.English: possibly also a nickname from Middle English blode ‘blood’, used as an oath (short for God's blood) but also as a term of address for a blood relative, as in: ‘Now beth nought wroth, my blode, my nece’ (Chaucer). It could also mean ‘child, near relative’ and ‘someone as dear to one as one's own offspring’.Irish (of English origin): According to MacLysaght, the Irish family of this name came to Ireland (Clare) in the 16th century from Derbyshire, where they were originally called by the Welsh surname ap Llwyd (see Lloyd), but the Welsh origin is dubious, and it is more likely that the surname is derived from 1 or 2 above.
