Biographical or historical data
In June 1609, the Virginia Company sent nine vessels to bring supplies and new colonists to the settlement at Jamestown. In July 1609, a hurricane battered the expedition resulting in the sinking of one ship and the wreck of the Sea Venture, the expedition's flagship, on Bermuda. The other seven ships made it to Jamestown. In May 1610, two ships, the Patience and Deliverance, built from the remnants of the Sea Venture and local cedar, sailed from Bermuda to Jamestown with much needed supplies. Four men were left behind to keep Bermuda inhabited. Bermuda became a permanent settlement in 1612.
