John died 1 June 1600 in Paignton and was buried at sea on the 3rd-- there's some evidence it was a normal form of burial in his family. He was probably a seaman and may have served in the Royal Navy like his grandson, whose body was shipped all the way from New England to Devonshire, so he could be buried off the coast of Paignton.
Because he died at such a young age, inferences are sometimes made that he was "lost at sea," but I have some doubt that that was the case.
