19 Author Introduction-Richard Frethorne (died ca. 1624)

Jenifer Kurtz

Little is known about Richard Frethorne besides that he was an indentured servant at Martin’s Hundred, a plantation in Virginia from 1622 until his death.  It is believed that he was a young teen when he arrived in Virginia. By 1625, nearly half of all residents at Martin’s Hundred had died, and it is believe that Frethorne is among those who perished.
