Dealer Notes
Sir Edwin Sandys (1561-1629) was one of the founders of the Virginia Company of London which established the settlement of Jamestown in 1606, the first permanent English settlement in America. “Sandys states that the purpose of his travels is the observation of the various religions of western Europe, especially the Reformed churches, with a view to the possibilities for unity; what he actually produced is an account of the religious/political situation in Europe at the end of the sixteenth century.”—Henley.
