Controversial historic subject due mainly to the fact that scholars were snobs and "gentlemen", while John Smith was a new class of yeoman, called "freeman" and was discriminated against by them.
Complicated subject because references do not tell the complete matter and further study is essential to understand the subject risking loss of focus, needs a 'plan english', condensed version with hyperlinks. Example the sons of Lord Willoughby are impossible to follow due to titles and name conventions of the period. Another example the name John in some referential material was spelled 'Ion.'
All biographers fall short in characterizing John Smiths' innate talents: gifted artist, cartographer, linguist, naturalist, diplomat, and one of the early classes of information gathers for Hakluyt today known as spies.
Otherwise, this is a good source of facts, but only a starting point for understanding an author who's original works have been copied thousands of times in modern day media: novels, movies, and television. It can be said that John Smiths' works have influenced Shakespeare, Sir Walter Scott, and many others.
