  • Notes 
    • "William Spencer, born about 1560 in England, arrived in Virginia in either 1607 or 1608, depending
      upon which of two conflicting accounts one accepts. According to the "Encyclopedia of Virginia
      Biography," Vol. I, p. 329, William Spencer arrived in the so called 'First Supply' voyage from England
      to provision the first Colonists in 1608. This version is supported by information preserved by the
      "Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities." The otherversion, outlined in considerable
      detail on p. 580-5 of "Adventurers of Purse and Person, Virginia, 1607-1625," 1987 ed., has William
      arriving in the "Sarah Constant" at Jamestown in 1607 with the very first Colonists, subordinate officer
      to ship's Captain Christopher Newport. In either case, William Spencer was one of the first English
      Colonists in the New World."
