As being precise, it was only after a lot of suffering that the English settlers of Jamestown managed to stabilize their life pattern. They learned to grow tobacco and started earning profits on their sale of tobacco to England. However in the year 1619, the English settlers of Jamestown witnessed certain changes in their lifestyles. For starters, in the very year, women came to Jamestown for the very first time as before it were only men who were living there in North America.

Another significant change that happened in the same year (1619) was the transfer of Africans who were brought to the English settlement to work as indentured servants who signed contracts with their masters to whom they were sold. The final reason that marks the importance of the year 1619 in the history of Jamestown was the establishment of the Virginia House of Burgesses, which was a group of representatives from every farm and plantation, who wrote laws and based the system of the settlement on this governing system.
