History

The early individuals possibly arrived approximately 10,000-12,000 years ago in the area and undeniably spent a lot of time in the valleys, close to the rivers and streams. Jamestown, by 1300 BC, was home to plenty of Native Americans. Situated on the island is New England’s biggest Indian cemetery, and relics that span for a period of 3,000 years were retrieved from the site close to the elementary school.

Giovanni Verrazzano, an Italian navigator, had become the early European that is known to visit the Narragansett Bay in 1524, along with his crew. He settled in the area only for a short-time period because he was on an exploration tour and not settlement. The early European settlers and explorers had reported thousands of Narragansett Indians and Wampanoag residing in Narragansett Bay.

In the year 1636 or 1637, the Dutch fur dealers had made a payment to make use the Quentenis Island as their center for activities. The island lies on the west of Conanicut and is a part of Jamestown and known as Dutch Island. In the year 1638, the English settlers had made arrangements to make use of the island of Conanicut to graze sheep. Canonicus was among the Narrangansett sachems who gave permission.

A group of roughly a hundred buyers acquired Gould, Conanicut and Dutch islands in 1657 and split the island of Conanicut into about a dozen huge plots and set aside parts of Conanicut Island and Dutch Island for common utilization. Among the purchasers was Benedict Arnold who became a governor of the Rhode Island colony in that same year and went back to the office in the years 1662-1663, 1669 and 1677. Conanicut Island was incorporated as Jamestown in 1678, paying tribute to Prince James. There were approximately 150 occupants in this town.
