This chapter considers to what extent social relationships among planters and physical proximity among sites affected the distribution of pipe attributes across these sites. Pipe making in the plantation setting can be compared with what is known about specialized pipe making in Europe. Professional pipe-makers chartered a guild in Westminster in the year 1619, forbidding all but guild members to 'practice use or exercise the acted or mistery of making of Tobacco Pipes of any matter or forme whatsoever'. The chapter imagins people moving pipes through two parallel landscapes, one physical and one social. Both were products of the colonial enterprise, the tobacco economy, and the colony's insatiable appetite for labor. The odds of achieving a higher level of wealth than one's parents decreased as the century wore on, as land became scarcer, and as the initial cost of obtaining labor rose. This economic immobility is an ironic contrast with the peripatetic tendencies of colonial Virginians.
