One of these companies was called the London Company and it was given the southern Virginia territory.
Once again, over the winter, most of the colonists died of starvation and from hostile encounters with their neighbors.
As winter came to a close, ships arrived, and most of them were ready to leave.
All 102 of the passengers were referred to as the "Pilgrims" after they arrived.
The group had obtained a Patent from the London Virginia Company which indentured them into service for the Company for seven years after they arrived and settled.
It took sixty six days to reach New England and the journey was very hard for these non-seafarers.
When they arrived they anchored off the tip of Cape Cod, in an area now known as Massachusetts, and before they even set foot on shore they wrote, and all the men signed, an agreement called the "Mayflower Compact" that would set the rules to guide them through the early, hard times of establishing a new community.
Grouped with the Southern Colonies, Virginia started out as a Corporate colony (granted by Royal charter to a Company of investors who have governing rights) but in 1624 became a Royal colony (subject to the governing authority of the granting Royalty).
There were 102 passengers on the Mayflower including 41 Christian Puritan Separatists known collectively as the Leiden group.

One of the settlers, however, was familiar with hardship and was committed to Jamestown's survival. Although his personality caused him some initial problems with the other colonists (he arrived in Jamestown in chains after alienating the leaders of the expedition) he eventually made contact with the local Native American chieftain Powhatan, who provided the colonists with much of their food in that first year. Smith was eventually even appointed leader of the colony.
