Devon, from wiki:
Devon is known for its mariners, such as Sir Francis Drake, Sir Humphrey Gilbert, Sir Richard Grenville, Sir Walter Raleigh, and Sir Francis Chichester.
Henry Every, described as the most notorious pirate of the late 17th century, was probably born in the village of Newton Ferrers.
John Oxenham (1536–1580) was a lieutenant of Drake but considered a pirate by the Spanish.
Thomas Morton (1576–1647?) was an avid Elizabethan outdoorsman probably born in Devon who became an attorney for The Council For New England, and built the New England fur-trading-plantation called Ma-Re Mount or Merrymount around a West Country-style Maypole, much to the displeasure of Pilgrim and Puritan colonists. Morton wrote a 1637 book New English Canaan about his experiences, partly in verse, and may have thereby become America's first poet to write in English.
Another famous mariner and Devonian was Robert Falcon Scott, the leader of the unfortunate Terra Nova Expedition to reach the geographical South Pole.
The poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the crime writer Agatha Christie and the poet Ted Hughes lived in Devon (his funeral and cremation were held there).
The painter and founder of the Royal Academy, Sir Joshua Reynolds, was born in Devon. Chris Dawson, the billionaire owner of retailer The Range was born in Devon, where his business retains its head office in Plymouth.I've just finished reading The Island That Disappeared, the biography of Providence, an island off the coast of Nicaragua. From that book I finally understand the evolution of piracy, privateering, the Opium Wars (two, China, 19th century), Hong Kong.
I'm not going to live long enough to read all the books that need to be read. Insert "sad face" emoji here.
