Summary of Port Royal

Port Royal is an unincorporated town in the county of Caroline, Virginia. It was established in 1652 as a port for the export of tobacco at the head of the Rappahannock River. One of the oldest towns in the area, it is said that the area was named after the Roy family – John and Dorothy Roy – who owned a ferry service across the river to King George County, a warehouse chartered by the crown, and a tavern. In 1744, Port Royal became an incorporated town. On April 26, 1865, John Wilkes Booth, former president Abraham Lincoln's assassinator, was killed two miles outside of the town at Garrett farmstead by Sgt. Boston Corbett.
