    Sir Ralph was a member of the Second and Third London Compa nies. In all the Colonial records of the Second Charter gr anted to the London Companies, 23 May 1609, the names of Si r Ralph Shelton of Norfolk, England, a Captain Shelton and
    a James Shelton, Gentleman, appear. The Second London Comp any sailed under Lord De La Warr with nine ships and 500 pe ople.
    (state became Deleware from De La Warr)


    The admiral's ship was named "Sea Venture". They landed i n America in 1610.

    A carter was granted to the Third London Company in 1611 . As a member of
    Parliament, Sir Ralph signed the petition circulated ther e by the Company in

    1610.
    There is nothing to indicate Sir Ralph ever came to Americ a to live. If so, he
    returned to England; but his son James Shelton, Gentleman , came with Lord De La

    Warr in June 1610, remained and founded the Shelton famil y of America in Virginia. He was killed at the Isle of Rhe.


    August 1609
    Seven ships arrive at Jamestown, Sea Venture wrecked on Ber muda. 200-300 men, women, and children.

    May 23 1610
    Gates (acting as Virginia's first governor until arrival o f Thomas West-Lord De La Warr, John Rolfe, Ralph Hamor, Si r George Somers, and other survivors of the Sea Venture wre cked at Bermuda arrive at Jamestown. Find 60 survivors of t he starving time

    Lord De La Warr was a title given to Thomas West. Ralph mar ried Jane West.
    Sir Ralph Shelton was fourth husband of Jane West. She wa s about two years older than Sir Ralph.



    On 2 June 1609, the Sea Venture set sail from Plymouth as t he flagship of an eight-ship fleet destined for Jamestown , Virginia as part of the Third Supply, carrying 500-to-60 0 people (unclear whether that number includes crew, or onl y settlers). On the 25 July, the fleet ran into a strong st orm, likely a hurricane, and the ships were separated. Th e Sea Venture fought the storm for three days. Comparably-s ized ships had survived such weather, but the Sea Venture h ad a critical flaw in her newness, as her timbers had not s et. The caulking was forced from between them, and the shi p began to leak rapidly. All hands applied were applied t o bailing, but the water continued to rise in the hold. Th e ship's guns were jettisoned to raise her bouyancy, but th is only delayed the inevitable. The Admiral of the Company , Sir George Somers himself, was at the helm through the st orm. When he spied land on the morning of 28 June, the wate r in the hold had risen to nine feet, and crew and passenge rs had been driven past the point of exhaustion. Somers del iberately drove the ship onto the reefs of what proved to b e Bermuda in order to prevent its foundering. This allowe d all 150 people, and one dog, aboard to be landed safely a shore.

    This was not the end of the survivors' ordeals, however. O n reaching Jamestown, only 60 survivors were found of the 5 00 who had preceded them. Many of these survivors were them selves dying, and Jamestown itself was judged to be unviabl e. Everyone was boarded onto the Deliverance and Partience , which set sail for England. The timely arrival of anothe r relief fleet, bearing Governor Baron De La Warre, which m et the two ships as they descended the James River, grante d Jamestown a reprieve. All the settlers were relanded at t he colony

    March 28 1611
    De La Warr leaves for England, George Percy is Deputy Gover nor until arrival of Thomas Dale, about 150 people left.
