It was recorded as a Patawomeck village ruled by Japazaws, elder brother of the weroance, who conspired with Englishman Samuel Argall to capture Chief Powhatan's daughter, Matoaka (Pocahontas) on April 13, 1613. According to Mattaponi and Patawomeck tradition, Pocahontas was residing there with her husband, Kocoum, and her daughter, Ka-Okee, survived with other Patawomecks after Kocoum's death. A historic marker about this event stands near the Potomac Creek Bridge on U.S. Route 1 in Stafford.
