Nine ships under Sir George Somers left London by way of Plymouth on May 15, 1609 to relieve the first wave of the colonization of Jamestown, Virginia of 1607.  A storm scattered the ships with some of them finally reaching Jamestown.  The ship SEA ADVENTURE was wrecked on the island of Bermuda, where, during the whole year that they were stranded on the island, the survivors built two ships, PATIENCE and DELIVERANCE, and on them sailed into Jamestown in May 1610.  John Thomas, grandfather of the two Oglethorpe sisters married to the two sons of John Askew, Isle of Wight, was a survivor of the wreck of the ship SEA ADVENTURE in Bermuda. William Shakespeare wrote his play, THE TEMPEST inspired by that shipwreck.1793\
