Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William Strachey (1572 – before June 21, 1621) was an English writer whose works are among the primary sources for the early history of the English colonization of North America. He is best remembered today as the eye-witness reporter of the 1609 shipwreck on the uninhabited island of Bermuda of the colonial ship Sea Venture, which was caught in a hurricane while sailing to Virginia. The survivors eventually reached Virginia after building two small ships during the ten months they spent on the island. His account of the incident and of the Virginia colony is thought by most Shakespearean scholars to have been a source for Shakespeare's play The Tempest and hence challenges the Oxfordian theory of Shakespeare authorship, as the incident post dated the death of Edward de Vere.
