How is it that settled land in western Virginia colony was apparently unaffected by the Royal Proclamation of 1763?

I have a number of ancestors from the area of modern-day Greenbrier county, West Virginia. One wrote his signature on the petition in the 1700s to form Greenbrier county in the first place.

Last week, I was on vacation in Pennsylvania, and found out things I didn't know about the British, French, and Indian war, and how one outcome was the promise by the English monarch to leave the western side of the Appalachian mountains for the Indians. But it seems they were already settlers there who didn't budge.

Was the Royal Proclamation never really obeyed? Were there any consequences at all for people who were on, or who were seeking, land in areas such as Virginia?

When was the Colony of Virginia founded?

I am asking this because my North-American Literature professor told us students the colony of Virginia was founded in 1610 (being the first English colony in North America), although according to many internet sources, it was settled three years earlier... in 1607. I'm intrigued by this, as I certainly don't doubt my professor's knowledge, but on the other hand, I don't understand how 1607 is the year several websites confirm as the real year of its settlement. I can't ask my professor about this because classes are over and I don't have her email… I'd be much obliged if someone clarified this doubt of mine.
