About Edward Gurgaynie, Ancient Planter

Two ships John & Francis and Phoenix, collectively known as "the First Supply," left London for the newly established settlement in Virginia.—"Edward Gurgana" was one of those on board the Phoenix. The barque Phoenix having reached the coast of Virginia in sight of Cape Henry, but confronting tempest winds, was forced to turn about, and with masts in need of repair, and their fresh water supply running low, the Phoenix was forced to head for the nearest land of safe retreat, which came to be an island in the West Indies. Here they found wood to repair the ship and provisions to live on, which enabled them to save much of their much needed stores for those at James Fort.
