A lot of your information is good. I can give you the roots of Hassell (Hazzell, Hazel) family. Can't write it now. But a brief note, Hercules was first mate on the Dutch ship Van Dyke, Elizabeth was a passenger on that ship from England and pickedup from Plymouth Sound. They were on their way to St. Vincent and were being chased by pirates. Hercules took the passengers from the ship and headed toward a tiny island in the distance. Knowing only by the formation of a cloud in the sky. Anyway,
This is a splendid story and would love to have it in full with your references.
I have Hercules being born in St Thomas Danish Virgin Islands but he could equally have been on the Dutch ship as you suggest.
Hercules Hazell, 1749 - 1833. Either way he was John Hercules Hazell's great grandfather.
Much looking forward to hearing from you,
