‘Captain Benjamin Hornigold’

Active a short time only, 1716-1717, but still Hornigold's ship was the starting point for many of the more famous pirates.

Hornigold left New Providence Island in the Bahamas with Edward Teach (Blackbeard) among his crew. He captured a sloop, which Blackbeard made captain of.   They plundered six ships in 1717 off the American coast & raided in the Caribbean.   By the years end they seized a French ship ladened with gold, jewels & other booty & then parted company.   Teach went to America & Hornigold to New Providence.   When Woodes Rogers was appointed governor of the Bahamas Hornigold asked for & received a pardon.   Rogers thought highly of Hornigold & commissioned him to hunt pirates.   Hornigold pursued John Auger among others.   Circa 1719, Hornigold was sent to Mexico on a trading voyage.   Hornigold's ship struck a reef and all hands were lost.
