George Booth

Booth was English & the majority of his pirating took place in the Indian Ocean & the Red Sea.   His career began as a gunner aboard the Pelican circa 1696.   Later he was the gunner aboard the Dolphin.   Both ships sailed in the Indian Ocean.
In September 1699, the Dolphin was trapped at Saint Mary's Island by a British fleet.   Offered a pardon, some of the pirates surrendered, but most escaped to nearby Madagascar.   Instead of letting the Dolphin fall into the hands of the British she was burned.   Booth was among those who fled to Madagascar & was instrumental in the cpature of a French ship which was Madagascar to trade liquor & goods for slaves.   Booth was captain of the attack and as such was in command of the captured ship.
Sometime later Booth met John Bowen & the joined forces.   At Majunga, in April 1704, they took over the Speaker, a 450 ton slave ship carrying 50 guns & Booth was made her captain. Booth sailed to Zanzibar & arrived towards the end of 1700.   When they went ashore for provisions they were attacked by Arab troops. Booth was killed & John Bowen was voted to replace him as captain.
