The population as of the 2010 United States Census was 4,239. It lies 10mi north of Fredericksburg, approximately 40mi south of metropolitan Washington, D.C., and about 60mi north of Richmond, the Commonwealth capital (Connor, 2003). The Marine Corps Base Quantico is located north of the community. Stafford Courthouse is located at the intersections of U.S. Highway 1, and Courthouse Road.HistoryEnglish sea captain, Samuel Argall abducted the Pamunkey princess, Pocahontas near this area on April 13, 1613 while she was residing with her Patawomeck husband, Kocoum in an attempt to secure some English prisoners for release and ammunitions held by her father. It occurred in the eastern part of this county, from where the colonists took her to a secondary English settlement, known as Henricus (or Henrico Town). The vicar, Alexander Whitaker converted Pocahontas to Christianity during her captivity. He renamed the princess "Rebecca" at her baptism. Rebecca married English colonist John Rolfe on April 5, 1614 in Jamestown.
