John Sayers: 1683 Leith Scotland to Virginia

I found a posting of unknown origin

referring to a John Sayers: merchant sailing on the Pheonix of Leith ship in 1683 from Leith Scotland to Virginia

Most of these ships carried convicts and servants to be indentured in Virginia
hard to believe a merchant would be in this class

Cant say as he stayed: or was just part of the transport team.

Potentially: though: he is a source of Sayers in Early Virginia
