Bellamy proved to be a most successful pirate, mainly in the West Indies. He is said to entertain his crew with flowery orations, of which he considered himself quite the master. He was concerned for the well-being of his prisoners, but he favored his crew's well-being above all else, not to evoke any sinister feelings among them.
On April 26th, 1717, Bellamy & his crew were sailing between Nantucket Shoals & George's Bank, Massachusetts, when they captured the Mary Anne. Shortly before sunset, the ships sailed into a think fog & by 10 p.m. they had lost sight of each other. In the fog, near Cape Cod, the Mary Anne ran aground & the next morning two colonists had helped her crew ashore. The Whyhah was not so lucky. She was hit by an intense storm & the ship was capsized.
Two men survived this tragedy. Thomas Davies lived to pass down the intense account of the shipwreck to Cape Cod folklore. The other disappeared into history.
