I was born between 1540-1544 in Tavistock, England. I have 12 siblings. My father is a minister for the navy. Then my father was accused of robbery and he left in 1548. I grew up by the sea but when I was eighteen, I went to work for a sea captain. I found my home living and working on a ship.
When I was 18 I became my cousin, John Hawkins, apprentice. John Hawkins was a ship captain. We went to the caribbeans. I learned a lot about the sea and how to run a ship on that voyage. I speak English and Spanish.
I have had many experiences including:
While I thought I was a pretty good man the spanish didn't think so. I did take the stuff off their ships and then sink their ships but it was for England. Queen Elizabeth would always tell me that I was doing a good job at what I did but I could tell that she was telling the Spanish that I was doing bad things.
