The Best Community
According to Chapter 3 in Colonial Ways of Life,
“The wealthy landowners, some- times referred to as the Southern gentry or the planter elite, enjoyed enormous economic and political influence. They represented their communities in the governing councils and assemblies, commanded the local militias, and served as county judges.”
If you have any land, just come over and perhaps you'll be voted for one of the members of the House of Burgesses, an elite members group.
John Smith (1606)
"Heaven & earth never agreed better to frame a place for man's habitation; were it fully manured and inhabited by industrious people. Here are mountaines, hils, plaines, valleyes, rivers, and brookes, all running most pleasantly into a faire Bay, compassed but for the mouth, with fruitfull and delightsome land."
