William Ambrosia Cowley was a 17th century English buccaneer who surveyed the Galápagos Islandsmarker during his circumnavigation of the world, and published the first chart of the islands in 1684. In his diary he reported the discovery of the mythical Pepys Island, allegedly situated north of the Falkland Islandsmarker, prompting a number of mariners to look in vain for the nonexistent land.
