It remains, however, the only source of information about Stock's movements in the years preceding his entry into the Venerable English College in Rome4 and the period between his departure from the English College and his final return to England. Born in Plombey, England, around i5y6,5 Thomas Doughty was either born of Catholic parents or was soon converted to Catholicism.

In 1609 he had invested in the Virginia Company of London. A few years later he had become member and an investor in the East India Company. 36 Calvert's first settlers landed at Ferryland on 4/14 August 1621 under the guidance of Captain Edward Wynne. 39 Nothing more is recorded about Ferryland or the settlers until the beginning of 1625, wnen Calvert decided to go there in person. Until at least 1624, Simon Stock had probably never heard of Avalon or Newfoundland, and America was far from his mind.

For want of other sources, Roman officials gave considerable weight to Stock's information, descriptions, and suggestions. He thus directly contributed to the shaping of their consciousness of America and indirectly influenced the decisions they took concerning the New World.
