Per Wikipedia: "He is best known as the captain of the Susan Constant, the largest of three ships which carried settlers for the Virginia Company in 1607 on the way to find the settlement at Jamestown in the Virginia Colony, which became the first permanent English settlement in North America. He was also in overall command of the other two ships on that initial voyage, in order of their size, the Godspeed and the Discovery".

h/o Katherine Proctor, Ellen Ade, Elizabeth Glaufield & possibly one more wife.

f/o Mary "Molly" Bragg via Katherine, Christopher & Jane via Ellen & Elizabeth, Joseph, John, William & Marian Hatcher via Elizabeth. But I've read that Christopher, Jane, Elizabeth & John were the only children mentioned in his will.
