Encyclopedia > Third Supply

The Third Supply was the first truly successful wave of colonization, in the first British settlement in the Americas; Jamestown, Virginia. It consisted of five to six hundred people, in a fleet of eight ships, with Admiral George Somers, Samuel Jordan, Sir Thomas Gates, all of whom stayed with the ship Sea Venture, when she was damaged in a storm near Bermuda, while the rest of the fleet continued to Jamestown. Their struggle to save the ship may have been the inspiration for Shakespeare's play, The Tempest.


Without their leadership, the group foundered, but became recovered and prospered when they showed up less than a year later, with two ships -- Patience and Deliverer -- built from the remains of Sea Venture.
