Early Sanders records - Virginia Colonial records project
(some notes from transcriber Mike Sanders: All 253 entries were not noted.
There were some duplicate entries & quite a few that listed English merchants
in England doing business with Virginia. All counties are in Virginia unless
otherwise noted. A caution on the index of wills – the entries didn’t note
if it was for the individual or if they were just referenced in the various
will papers. Most of the land records are digitized but the text was extracted
from the library card and not the actual record. As we all know a grantee
of land did not necessarily mean that that individual lived on the property.
They could even have been a merchant in England that was granted the land.
I apologize for any typos – Michael Sanders July 1, 2007)

Early Sanders records - Virginia Colonial records project
(some notes from transcriber Mike
Sanders: All entries were not noted. There were some duplicate entries or too
vague. All counties are in Virginia unless otherwise noted. Most of the land
records are digitized but the text was extracted from the library card and not
the actual record. As we all know a grantee of land did not necessarily mean
that that individual lived on the property. They could have been merchants in
England that were granted the land. I apologize for any typos – Michael Sanders

Ship was in a very rotten state and ill fitted for the voyage which lasted from July 1, 1637 to June 22, 1637. There are quite a few admiralty papers that list court cases that only list the last name of Saunders. In reading them they appear to be related to this Joseph and the same ship and the Bonnie Bess which went aground at Long Island, Virginia in rough weather. Two great boat loads of goods weighing 5 tons apiece were taken out of to be carried ashore but both were lost in the attempt. Freight on board the two ships were valued at L2400 to Saunders’ account. Whilst the two ships were at Virginia, it was rumored that Weston had received instructions from Saunders to dispose of the Bonnie Bess: Weston offered to sell it to Leonard Calvert, the Governor of Maryland, but, in fact, eventually sold it to Richard Orchard who had arrived in Virginia a month after the ship had been driven aground. Suits were commenced in the Quarter Court at James Town by planters and relatives of merchants who had died on board, for restitution of goods seized by Weston on the outward voyage. Details of Flower de Luce: On 11 October 1638 it left Newfoundland for Virginia, Master John White. On October 21 it arrived at Point Comfort. Later on 2 November it arrived at James Town. On 11 April 1639 the homeward voyage was started. However, the day before the ship set sail for Point Comfort, White and Samuel Leddoye, the purser, on behalf of the owners of the vessel, protested against Nicholas Stourfield, George Grace and Simon Hake, freighters of the said ship, at the terms of schedule made over to them.

Leddoye and White, protesting at their failure to load the ship in time, went to James Town where their complaint was lodged in the suits of the Quarter Court.
