Wood Research File
Wood, Benjamin -- 1584 Reconnaissance voyage
Wood, John -- 1584 Reconnaissance voyage
Wood, Agnes -- 1587 Colonist roster (single female or unescorted )
From Roberta Estes:
Let's look at some of the other and more obviously single women, in this case Agnes Wood. In 1549 one Robert Woode of St. Bride's Church, London, to which at least one other member of the colony also belonged, married Johanna Toppam. Was our Agnes their daughter and therefore related to the Tappans? Or was she perhaps the Agnes Traver who married John Wood in London in 1577 ?51 John Wood had come to Roanoke in 1584. There may have been some reason for his wife to come.
Both Benjamin and John Wood who came in 1584 with Amadas and Barlowe, later enjoyed high positions. Benjamin had an interesting career at sea and was a noted navigator and captain. He has a place in the annals of British naval history for his attempt to reach China. He is known to have arrived at the Malay Peninsula but was later lost at sea. John had already been a muster captain and after returning home became one of the "Jurates" of the town and port of Sandwich. He was knighted in 1603 at the coronation of James I.
