Bevis, Thomas  -- 1590, died on journey -


Relief voyage 1589-1590

Governor White sailed on March 20, 1590, for America, but without the accompanying planters and supplies. Indeed, his status was not much better than that of a passenger on one of Wattes' ships, who had limited court influence at home. After spending months in the Caribbean, they finally arrived in the area.  On the morning of the Aug. 16th, Governor White, Captain Cooke, Captain Spicer, and a small company set forth in two boats for Roanoke Island. They were looking for the colonists, they were not found.
