Daniel Tucker was an early or significant Bermudan.

2nd Governor Of Bermuda[1]

Captain and Governor William Daniel Tucker came to Jamestown on the second ship to reach the settlement in 1608. He had married Elizabeth Mansfield in 1597 in Milton, Kent, England. Their first four children were born in Milton: William in 1598, Henry in 1600, Daniel in 1602, and Alice in 1606. The place of birth for Arthur, born in 1608, could be either England or America. Alice is listed as coming to America with Capt. Arthur Allen, who would become her husband.

Tucker stayed in Jamestown until 1613 when he returned to England. He was appointed as the second governor of Bermuda, he arrived in May of 1616 on the ship the George [21] and served in that position until 1619. He went back to Virginia, but returned to Bermuda where he died in 1625.

His home in Bermuda was called "The Grange", at the Overplus in Southampton.1618.

Hopefully with further research the dates and places in the lists below will tighten-up and have more of an explanation.

Hey Issac and Kelly,

I am the leader of the Bermuda Project. Nice profile!

Since this is a governor of Bermuda, I would like to project protect it and add the project template to it. Might even get round to adding more sources and information.
