Argall Sir Samuel
Born in Walthamstow, England. A type of the
founders of British colonial dominion. Sent, May, 1609, with a small
vessel to the new settlement at Jamestown, Va., to trade and fish. The
following year took out Lord Delaware to Jamestown, arriving in time to
save the colony from starvation. In 1812 carried off Pocahontas to the
settlement of Jamestown. Later in the year sent with a vessel of 14 guns
to destroy the French settlements on the north coast, regarded as
infringing on the Virginia patent. Captured Mount Desert, St. Croix, and
Port Royal. On return voyage forced the commandant at New Amsterdam to
recognize English suzerainty by hauling down the Dutch flag and running
up the English. May, 1617, made deputy governor of Virginia. In 1620
served against the Algerine pirates under Sir Robert Mansell. Knighted
in 1622. In 1625 admiral of a squadron cruising after a hostile Dunkirk
fleet, and took some prizes. In October, 1625, with the futile
expedition against Cadiz under Lord Wimbledon. Died, 1626. =Bib.=:
