Famous challenged on facts about Sir George
With reference to the article on July 30 under the headline “Famous: don’t forget Cup Match origins”, Sir George Somers was a senior seaman (admiral).
He died in 1611. There was no slavery in Bermuda at that time.
I find no evidence that he was a slave owner. Perhaps Christopher Famous could source his material to us?
History needs to be factual. If it’s true, we need to know.
If it is not true, then we need to know that also.
