About Henry Bagwell

Arrived at Jamestown, VA, in May of 1610 on board the Deliverance, which, along with the Patience, was built with Bermudan cedar and recovered timber from the Sea Venture. The Sea Venture had blown off course by a storm in August 1609 as it lead a group of 8 other ships in the Third Supply of Jamestown. It wrecked off Bermuda and its passengers lived on Bermuda for ten months. Once the Deliverance and Patience were built, they sailed to Jamestown to find only 60 survivors there. This experience inspired Shakespeare's The Tempest. One of Henry's fellow passengers was John Rolfe, who would eventually marry Pocahantas.
