---Preface---
The Memoirs, set forth herein, are presented to the reader as channelled to V'léOnica Roberts, the Captain's reverent co-author and ever adoring champion, by the great man himself.
The Prologue is co-authored by Mrs Roberts.   Any additional comments by her presented thus.
All written herein is absolute truth, with no glorification, for there is no reason for it, as this is one bit of history that is filled with it's own incredible sensationalism.

AFTER BEING ONLINE 21 YEARS (1996-2017,) THIS WEBSITE IS UNDERGOING A MAKEOVER. UNTIL COMPLETED, hopefully by the end of summer 2017, THE AUTHOR HOPES YOU'LL TAKE THE TIME TO UNDERSTAND THE MOTIVES OF THIS INCREDIBLE MAN BY READING HER OPINION "THE WHY"


PROLOGUE
On the 17th of May, in the Year of our Lord, Sixteen Hundred and Eighty Two, in the tiny village of Nghastell Newydd Bach, which lyes betwixt Hwlffordd and Abergwaun in Sir Benfro, De Orllewin, Cymru (or for ye Englanders, Little Newcastle, in Pembrokeshire, South West, Wales, betwixt Haverfordwest & Fishguard,) a long awaited male child, christened John, was born to George Robert.   However 'twould be not until his late-thirties that he would come to realize his true worth.
Photograph taken by V'léOnica Roberts: Interior of St. Peter's Church, Little Newcastle. As far back as 1701, John Robert's father was the principal land owner in the district, and his family (until Nancy Davies past on a couple years ago) has had the honour of being the warden of the Saint Peter's Church. Miss Davies' nephew, Richard Davies, who is the reigning member of the family, has since become the vicar at St. Peter's. Whilst Miss Nancy lived, the Vicar Davies was church secretary & a fine organist.

As an interesting note, the author, who had never drawn neither map or ship, drew these, in ink, on the original log pages; as did the carving a quill pen, and others, are aspects that still baffle her.
