Arthur Pet is problematical because there were at least two mariners of that name in the sixteenth century, and, besides the voyage of 1553, two others described in Hakluyt in which Arthur Pet(t)(e) is named as Master. The Arthur Pet who sailed with Willoughby in 1553 can hardly be the same as the one who made his will in Virginia in 1609 (at which time his mother and stepfather were still living) and apparently died soon afterwards. So I don't feel confident in identifying the Arthur Pet of 1560, or the Arthur Pet of 1580, with either of them. Or even with each other....
