The Jamestowne Society was organized for educational, historical, and patriotic purposes, and to that end:
·To discover and record the names of all living descendants of those early settlers who made the great sacrifice to establish our English-speaking Nation; and to unite these descendants to honor the memory of our settler ancestors; and to record their deeds, and to do homage to the birthplace of Virginia and the Nation.
·To associate those descendants as members of the corporation.
·To bring the members into closer association through activities revolving around matters of common historical and genealogical interest.
·To promote the restoration of historical records, documents, objects, and edifices which are of lasting cultural value to the people of Virginia and of the Nation.
·To assist in the organization of state companies, reminiscent of the London and Virginia Companies, in states where membership and interest justify them.
