More news from Jamestown:

As we established last year, Bartholomew Gosnold’s cousin was married to one of Clarence’s great-great-granddaughters (https://murreyandblue.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/the-explorer-and-the-clarence-descendant/).

Now we can identify four of the 1607 founders who died in Jamestown during 1610: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/reuters/article-3177841/Scientists-identify-men-died-Virginias-Jamestown-400-years-ago.html. We can identify them as Rev. Robert Hunt, Sir Ferdinando Wainman, Captains William West and Gabriel Archer. The latter was, intriguingly, buried with some Catholic symbols.
