Note from Thomas Cole: The first captain to arrive in the Spring got to be admiral over all others who followed him (and lawgiver to any settlers who overwintered): the captain of the Marigold (the well known Christopher Martin, a true Newfoundland hero) was admiral in 1669. Surprisingly there is little mention of Martin's defense of St. John's against the Dutch.
