About Gabriel Archer

Gabriel Archer was a gentleman and attorney of Warwick, England, sailed from Falmouth, England, 26 March 1602 with the expedition under the command of Bartholomew Gosnold and explored the coast of New England, but returned to England 26 April 1607.

Captain Gabriel was fiercely attacked and wounded by Indians at a point of land on the Virginia coast where he had landed with Captain John Smith and others. There were three ships in this expedition. On 29 April 1607, they set up a cross and sailed away. On 12 May 1607, they discovered a point of land on the river James which they named "Archer's Hope" in his honor but did not settle there. Gabriel Archer was one of the "first planters" of Virginia and died there in 1609/10.
