The narrative of Captain Gosnold's adventures is taken from John Brereton's ‘Brief and True Relation of the Discovery of the North Part of Virginia: being a most pleasant, fruitful, and commodious soil.’ Reprinted in the Collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society, 3d series, vol. VIII. pp. 85-93.

Waymouth's narrative is taken from ‘A True Relation of the most Prosperous Voyage made this Present Year, 1605, by Captain George Waymouth, in the discovery of the land of Virginia, where he discovered, sixty miles up, a most excellent river, together with a most fertile land. Written by James Rosier, a gentleman employed in the voyage.’ Reprinted in the same volume of the Massachusetts Historical Collections, pp. 135-156.

The other two narratives are from Strachey's ‘Historie of Travaile into Virginia’ (reprinted by the Hakluyt Society, 1849), pp. 171-173, 176-180.
