William Penn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William Penn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William Penn (14 October 1644 - 30 July 1718) was an English real estate entrepreneur, philosopher, early Quaker and founder of the Province of Pennsylvania, the English North American colony and the future Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He was an early champion of democracy and religious freedom, notable for his good relations and successful treaties with the Lenape Indians.

Sheila Ahyakak-Yazzie's insight:

William Penn was an early quaker, and the founder of Pennsylvania.  He was also know for having a good relationship with the Lenape Indians. Under his directions, he planned the city of Philidelphia, and developed it. In 1669 Penn traveled to Ireland to deal with his fathers estates, and stayed with leading Quaker families.  Between 1671 and 1677 William Penn made trips to Germany on behalf of the Quaker faith. In 1684 Penn returned to England to see his family and try to dispute with Lord Baltimore. In 1685 King Charles died, the new king dispute in Penns favor. Penn faced serious problems in the colony due to his sloppy business. William Penn died penniless in 1718, and was buried by his unmarked first wife.

Magellens first sea voyage was in 1505, they sent him to Portugel to help another explorer install the Portugese viceroy. Magellen also had his first battle in 1509 when one of the kings rejected of paying tribute to the new viceroy. He lost the viceroy and left without permission, he was accused with illegally leaving with the Moors. Magellen lost all offers of employment from the Portugese after 1514. Magellen had to avoid Portugese since he was sailing for Spain. They moved down the coast of South America. The weather got worse so they stayed in Patagoina for the winter. When the weather calmed down in spring Magellen sent his explorers through the Pacific Ocean, in May his ship was wrecked. Ferdinand Magellen was the first to cross the Pacific. He did not complete the voyage he was killed in the Battle of Mactan in the Phillippines.

John Cabot sailed to England and settled there.  He thought he was sailing to Asia, to get gold, gems and spices, to get a share of profits. John sailed north of the Atlantic Ocean, when he saw land on June 24, 1497 it was not Asia. He actually sailed to NewFoundland (now part of Canada.) John and his crew sailed back home and the following years he again with 5 ships to Japan. He was never seen again.
