Hey Peter,

I am the Leader of the Bermuda Project. This profile syncs-up with the first Governor of Bermuda, "Richard Moore, the new Governor appointed by the Virginia Company. Richard Moore (1583-1618), was a native of Leckhampton, Gloucestershire, England. He was married to Elizabeth Norwood (1588-1632), who was also a native of England. Richard was a ship’s carpenter by vocation, ...commission from the Virginia Company in 1612 to serve as governor and manage the company’s resources invested in the Islands of Bermuda.” Thus, Richard Moore became the first British Governor of Bermuda. (His wife Elizabeth accompanied him."[1]
