There is a record of the Hopeful Luke of London being wrecked at Bermuda in 1653 but also another entry The Hopeful Luck Master John Wadsworth was wrecked at Bermuda in 1655; two events and two ships or just one? A JSTOR article refers to a petition by various men including John Wadsworth part owners of the Hopeful Luke and other named ships for a warrant to transport to Virginia 120 pairs of shoes, 6 barrels of powder  and one ton of shot in each ship  order made 27 July 1654.
