Taylor next went to Cochin, a Dutch port, where he sought to re-provision his ships. Taylor was forced to pay heavy bribes at the port. Taylor careened his ships at Mauritius and Saint Mary's Island. It was during this time that he was joined by Captain Olivier La Bouche who assumed command of, the Victory. They went to Réunion Island in April, 1721 where they captured the Portuguese Carrack Nostra Senhora de Cabo. On board the prize was the ex-Viceroy of Goa whom had in his possession diamonds valued at £500,000 as well as £375,000 worth of Oriental rareties.
The men then went to Madagascar where they divvied up their loot. Here the Victory was burned and replaced with, the Nostra Senhora de Cabo which was renamed, the Victory. Taylor and La Bouche parted company in December, 1722. Taylor took, the Cassandra and sailed to Panama, arriving in May of 1723. At Panama, the governor of Portobello pardoned Taylor and his crew in exchange for, the Cassandra. Taylor may have gone on to become a captain in the Panamanian coast guard.
