Alexander Research File

Alexander, Robert - Drake's 1586 West Indian Voyage, stopped at Roanoke, died on voyage.


June 9, 1586
Sir Francis Drake was off the coast of Roanoke Island with a mighty fleet of 23 ships. Richly laden with booty from his attack on the Spanish West Indies and Florida, Drake's fleet anchored next day partly in the port near Roanoke Island (probably Port Ferdinando) and partly in a "wilde roade" at sea 2 miles from the shore.
