    • Even though the 1625 muster states that John Proctor, an ancient planter, reached Virginia in 1607 on the Seaventure, it is much more likely that he came to the colony in 1609-1610 in one of the vessels that comprised part of Sir Thomas Gate's fleet. In December 1617 Proctor was identified as a debtor in the will made by Robert Smalley of Bermuda Hundred39.

      Sometime after 1621 he wed Alice (Allis, Allice), whom Captain John Smith described as a proper gentlewoman. By early 1622 the Proctor couple had established a plantation70 on the lower side of the James River within the corporation of Henrico. According to Captain John Smith, on March 22, 1622, when the Indians attacked the sparsely scattered settlements along the banks of the James River, Mrs. Alice Proctor single-handedly defended the family home, which was adjacent to what became known as Proctor's Creek. In the wake of the Indian attack, the Proctors, like other colonists living near the head of the James River, were ordered to withdraw to positions of greater safety. As soon as the Proctors abandoned their home, the Indians returned and destroyed it. In 1623 John Proctor, who said he had been in Virginia for 14 years, was among those who refused Captain Nathaniel Butler's allegations about the colony. On June 25, 1623, the Virginia Company agreed to give John Proctor a patent for transporting 100 people to Virginia. he in turn, agreed to serve as an attorney for two London merchants so that he could recover funds they were owed by the late Hugh Crowder. Proctor also was supposed to send the two merchants' surplus goods to Virginia. On February 16, 1624, John and Alice Proctor and their servants were living at Paces Paines9 on land they were renting. They were still there February 4, 1625, and were well provisioned and outfitted with defensive weaponry. The Proctors apparently had become hardened to life, for in October 1624 they were brought before the authorities and accused of causing the death of a servant girl they had ordered flogged with stout cord and fishhooks. Court testimony provided by some of the Proctors' servants suggests that they were guilty and that they also were responsible for the death of another servant. Moreover, the Proctors were accused of detaining another planter's servant. In May 1625 John proctor was credited with 100 acres within the corporation of Henrico, the plantation he and his wife had seated prior to the 1622 Indian attack. By July 3, 1627, John proctor was dead, at which time his widow, Alice, presented the justices of the General Court with an inventory of his estate and was designated his administrator.

      Among the debts Alice was authorized to collect on her husband's behalf were sumsowed by a Dutch carpenter and a man who had lost Proctor's small boat (

      John Proctor, Ancient Planter, arrived on the "Deliverance" in May 1610. John sailed from Plymouth in 1609 on the "Sea Venture", but was shipwrecked on Bermuda. John paid for his own passage, and established Proctor's Plantation below Falls on the south side of Falling Creek in 1620. After the Easter Massacre of 1622, he resided at or near Pace's Paines, Surry County.
