Bermuda Hundred was the first administrative division in the English colony of Virginia. It was founded by Sir Thomas Dale in 1613, six years after Jamestown. At the southwestern edge of the confluence of the Appomattox and James Rivers opposite City Point, annexed to Hopewell, Virginia in 1923, Bermuda Hundred was a port town for many years. The terminology "Bermuda Hundred" also included a large area adjacent to the town. In the colonial era, "hundreds" were large developments of many acres, arising from the English term to define an area which would support 100 homesteads. The port at the town of Bermuda Hundred was intended to serve other "hundreds" in addition to Bermuda Hundred.

  • Bermuda Hundred was the first administrative division in the English colony of Virginia. It was founded by Sir Thomas Dale in 1613, six years after Jamestown. At the southwestern edge of the confluence of the Appomattox and James Rivers opposite City Point, annexed to Hopewell, Virginia in 1923, Bermuda Hundred was a port town for many years. The terminology "Bermuda Hundred" also included a large area adjacent to the town. In the colonial era, "hundreds" were large developments of many acres, arising from the English term to define an area which would support 100 homesteads. The port at the town of Bermuda Hundred was intended to serve other "hundreds" in addition to Bermuda Hundred. The area of the peninsula between the James and Appomattox Rivers on which Bermuda Hundred is located was part of the Bermuda Hundred Campaign during the American Civil War (1861–1865). No longer a shipping port, Bermuda Hundred is now a small community in the southeastern portion of Chesterfield County, Virginia. (en)
  • Bermuda Hundred est la première ville incorporée dans la colonie anglaise de Virginie. Elle a été fondée par Sir (en) en 1613, six ans après Jamestown. Au bord sud-ouest de la confluence de l'Appomattox et du fleuve James en face (en), annexé par Hopewell en 1923, Bermuda Hundred a été une ville portuaire pendant de nombreuses années. La terminologie « Bermuda Hundred » comprenait également une grande zone adjacente à la ville. Au cours de l'ère coloniale, un Hundred a été un grand lotissement de plusieurs acres, découlant du terme anglais pour définir une zone qui soutiendrait une centaine de maisons. Le port de la ville de Bermuda Hundred était destiné à servir d'autres hundreds en plus de Bermuda Hundred. La campagne de Bermuda Hundred au cours de la guerre de Sécession (1861-1865) s'est déroulée dans la région de la péninsule entre le fleuve James et la rivière Appomattox où Bermuda Hundred est située. N'étant plus un port d'expédition, Bermuda Hundred est maintenant une petite communauté d'une partie au sud-est du comté de Chesterfield, en Virginie. (fr)
