Alexander Spotswood established a colony of German immigrants in Germanna in 1714, partly for frontier defense but mainly to operate his newly developed ironworks. The Germanna Colonies consist primarily of the First Colony of forty-two persons from the Siegerland area in Germany brought to Virginia to work for Spotswood in 1714, and the Second Colony of twenty families from the Palatinate and Baden-Wuerttemberg area of Germany brought in 1717.    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germanna

Franklin suggested the colonies thank Britain for sending their convicted criminals to America by sending the British rattlesnakes."
