MEDITERRANEAN GALEASS

MEDITERRANEAN GALEASS
The design appears to have been taken from drawing 340 on page 136 in “the ship” a reconstruction of an Italian drawing of a galleass dated 1669. It’s dimensions have been calculated to be 164’ stem to stern and 42½‘in breadth. It was propelled by 300 – 350 oarsmen on 50 oars, and carried about 20 guns.
Source: Watercraft Philately 1978 page 15.
Aak to Zumbra a Dictionary of the World’s Watercraft gives on the Mediterranean galleass:
Developed toward the end of the 15th century from the Venetian galeazza as a large and heavy oared sailing vessel. Some conducted naval excursions into the Atlantic. Some built on the northwest coast of Spain. Distinguished from the galley by its decking, a type of grating that covered the rowers; this decking made handling the sails and launching weapons easier since the galleass was more heavily armed than the ordinary galley. High poop, raised deck forward; recurved or a ram beak at the bow; square stern. Mostly three masted, setting all lateen sails or a combination of square and lateen. Rowed with 3-7 men to an oar, 25 – 32 oars per side, requiring as many as 343 rowers. In addition, there would be ca 120 sailors and perhaps 170 soldiers. Reported lengths 47 – 80m; length-to-beam ratio ca 5:1.

WILLIAM AND JOHN. Ship which carried settlers to the island in 1625.

The vessel depicted is not the WILLIAM AND JOHN but most probably a Dutch fluyt, a ships type which around that time was used by the Dutch merchant marine in large numbers. (see index for the details of the fluyt.)
The Dutch were calling already before 1625 at Barbados and via sources from the Dutch West India Company in Zeeland the Anglo-Dutch merchant William Courteen sent two ships to Barbados.
One of the ships was the WILLIAM AND JOHN or some sources given JOHN AND WILLIAM.
There is not any information on the ship, and the stamp design on the 1994 stamp depicts her “with a certain amount of Licence”.

Besides privateering by the Dutch, the search for salt was the mean drive for the Dutch, when they were sending out ships to the Caribbean to look for salt. They needed large quantities of salt for their fishing fleet to cure herring and other fish caught in the North Sea, and in the country for the preservation of meat
When the Dutch were under Spanish control salt could easily be obtained in Spain and Portugal, but when the ties were broken between the two countries on the end of the 16th century, other sources for salt were needed.
The Dutch found it at Punta del Araya on the coast of Venezuela.
The Spanish did not like this trade and many clashes took place there between the Dutch and Spanish ships
When in 1621 the Dutch West India Company (WIC) was formed, the outward cargo for these ships to the Caribbean and South America was all kind of merchandise while the homeward cargo was many times salt.
Around 1623 around 800 Dutch vessels were used in the trade from the Zeven Provincien to the Caribbean.

In 1625 the British Captain John Powel visited Barbados, and he took possession of the Island for England.

When he returned in the U.K. his employer William Courteen decided to send out British settlers to Barbados.
80 Settlers under the leadership of Henry Powel a brother of John left England on board two ships of which one was the WILLIAM AND JOHN.
20 February 1627 they arrived on the west coast of Barbados, were the settlers landed they named the place Jamestown after King James.

They brought with them 10 black slaves captured on the outward voyage from a Portuguese ship, and also all the equipment needed to begin a new colony.
