|The Iron Works at Falling Creek near Jamestown|
Five years after the massacre of Jamestown, William Capps was sent by the King to Virginia with a general commission to establish a number of industries in the colony, including the manufacture of iron. The Governor and Council expressed the utmost readiness to give Capps all the assistance in their power, but Capps soon became involved in trouble and before he could issue any plans, was forced to leave the colony.
