Canterbury Farms resides on land with a historic past. Many years ago, prior to colonization, the Monacan tribe had a village in the vicinity called Mowhemcho. These members of the Catawba tribe of the Sioux mined copper and traded it with other tribes including that of Chief Powhatan, Pocahontas’s father. The Monacan tribe’s village was eventually deserted.
At the end of the 1600s King William III of England encouraged the Huguenots to settle in the New World. In 1700, the Virginia General Assembly established the King William, or Huguenot Parish. Then, in 1701, the Huguenots established themselves in this area and named their village Manakin Town. Many of the Huguenots eventually moved away from Manakin Town in order to start their own farms.
In reverence to Canterbury Farm’s notable history, many elements of our community pay homage to its historical past:
|“Canterbury”: in honor of the fact that a large population of French Huguenots settled in Canterbury, England.|
|“Farms”: in honor of what many Huguenots aspired to create.|
|Canterbury Farms’ symbol: an adaptation of the Huguenot Cross.|
The Huguenot Society of the Founders of Manakin in the Colony of Virginia are Canterbury Farm’s neighbors. Should it be of interest, please visit their office, or their website at huguenot-manakin.org for a comprehensive history of the Huguenot’s settlement.
