Peter Heylyn (1599-1662) was a cleric with an interest in history and geography. He was a prolific writer, including Cosmographie [1260/1273], in which he endeavoured to record every detail of the known world of 1652. Thorwald C. Franke notes [1255.285] that Heylyn believed that a submerged Atlantis existed in the Atlantic.
Edward Wells (1667-1727) was an English mathematician, geographer and controversial theologian. In a 1701 work, A Treatise of Antient and Present Geography [1259.146], he refers to the belief of some, linking America with Plato’s Atlantis, although he avoids revealing his own opinion on the matter. He refers to Cosmographie by Peter Heylyn (1599-1662),>where arguments that the ancients had knowledge of America are more fully expounded. Thorwald C. Franke discusses Wells in his 2016 book [1255.321], and concluded that Wells thought that Atlantis had been situated in the Atlantic!<
