Historical Note

Tangier's Island (VA) is located between the Chesapeake and the Tangier Sound, boasting a population of approx. 1000 inhabitants. The island was discovered by John Smith on his 1607-1608 explorations, and the island was initially named as part of the "Russell Isles" in dedication to Smith's surgeon. Settlement on the island began in 1670, and the buying and selling of the island gradually began to break up into small household possessions by the early 19th century. Tangier and other surrounding islands began to benefit economically from the dramatic demand for seafood products in the early 1900's. By the 1920's, overfishing in the Chesapeake Watershed caused a slight depression, for which the population on the island has roughly remained the same since.
