The Common Tobacco Field #virginiapioneersnet #genealogy

1620 Tobacco Field in Jamestown
The demand for tobacco served well the trade in the American colonies and the West Indies. Tobacco was used as money, hence shipping one's crop to London, say, could stipulate how much tobacco was to go to the factoring agent who handled the accounts of American shippers.  The crop was easy to grow, plentiful, and used for a number of situations, as an herb, medicine for animals,  smoking, etc.  The problem was that it wore out the soil and well before the American Revolution, planters were already migrating into other areas in search of fertile land.  Images of Virginia Wills and Estates
