    Master John Wayland Smith is proud to be the Blacksmith for this new venture of ours. Horseshoes and hoes a priority he trusts?

    Back in the old country he made his way as a gunsmith, but is looking forward to resuming a more peaceable trade...

      I would gladly serve as chaplain for the adventure and tend to the flock as defender of the faith and minister to the sick and lowly.

            'Doctor' Svensson, a man of many talents, has acquired his medical skills in Denmark.
            You have to be in really dire straits before you're seeing a doctor like him.

              Jacques Piron is one of the few members that joined the expedition not to free himself from opression or religious intolerance in France. As a young man he is only attracted by the adventure. He received the post of secretary to Sir Engelhard thanks to his father who was cartographer under Samuel Champlain.
              He is frail of stature and looks rather too "clean" and "polished" for such a rough expedition. However, he's got a good head on his shoulders and is very eager learn.
              When the colonists saw him hanging over the railing of the "Splendid" as they departed from England, many thought that he wouldn't last a month in the wilderness of the New World...

                William Bailey was educated at modest religious schools. He knows the scriptures fairly well, but would just as soon empty a tankard of ale, truth be told.

                It is rumored he set sail for the New World to escape a poor reputation.

                      I am Master John Bryan, brewer and purveyor of fine ales extrodanaire, recently arrived from the continent, where I studied under British and Belgian brewmasters, also with German Monks in the art of brewing fine beer. I expect to do more of the same in this new land of endless possibilities. I specialize in English porter, pale ale, barley wines, bitter, mild and Belgian Trappist ales that use wild yeast..

                          James Tyson is a young soldier trained in the old world. He has some combat experience but is full youthful vigor and eager to learn more. He is not one to shy away from labor in order to help the new colony but always has his weapon near by and is ready to defend his fellow colonist.

                          Thanks for looking!!

                            Walter Blackstone is a soldier, younger than most. Always looking for a new adventure he has come to the new world. Some experience in the field of battle. He is always looking for a way to help. He will always help when called upon to preform his task throughly. He will accept feedback gladly, and will always try to improve.

                              Robert Pittman Hines, a 39 year old Gunner's Mate will be my character. I started out as a Scottish landsman onboard a coastal merchant, and as an ordinary seaman I was "written in the books" of the Royal Navy after the Sicilian flagged merchantman I was aboard was badly mauled by a squadron of Barbary Corsairs, and rescued only by the efforts of 2 valiant sloops of war of the Mediterranean Squadron. After 12 years service aboard the HMS Prince Royal as Able Seaman and then Gunner's Mate, I was allowed to leave. My pitiful savings wasn't enough to start a family in my native Scotland, but I heard of riches to be found in the new world, and the Company was willing to sponsor my passage because they knew they would require men with experience in artillery for the new colony.

                              My duties are to care, supervise, and train anyone needed for the 2x three pounders brought over in the hold, and to eventually mount the remaining 6 12 pounders from the ship's battery in either a fort or coastal battery if necessary. But my intentions are to get a fishing boat and make a living doing what I learned to do as a boy.......
