Newport News was named for Captain Christopher Newport, who captained the lead ship, Susan Constant, of the three ship fleet that carried the Jamestown settlers to the new world in 1607.Captain Newport made several more trips between the new world and England.

After the Starving Time of 1610, the original colonists abandoned Jamestown and encountered Captain Newport in the James River and learned that reinforcements of men and supplies had arrived, thus prompting their return to Jamestown. The place where that occurred became known for Newport's good news, "Newport's News," and eventually just Newport News.
