Comment: 	Re: SHK 16.1462 Caliban's Island

 >As I recall, the first expedition to what became Jamestown was 
shipwrecked on Bermuda around the time The Tempest was written; those 
who survived were retrieved and returned to England with tales of their 
wreck. Mightn't that be the source of WS's reference to the Bermoothes?

I can't imagine anyone in England attending a performance of The Tempest 
in 1611 not taking it to be that.
