Definitions of POPHAM COLONY
Sort: Oldest first
In 1607 two ships, the " Mary and John," commanded by George Popham, and the " Gift of God," commanded by Raleigh Gilbert, were sent out by Sir Ferdinando Gorges. They reached the mouth of the Kennebec River in Maine on August 19. Popham was left to establish a colony at Sabino, and Gilbert returned. Popham died during the winter, and when a ship arrived the next year the colony was broken up.
