Re: Haytian Navies 1800s-1810s

It would be nice if you could collate the information in the clippings into a single post.

If you do that I can make it sit at the top of the topic so it can be found and updated easily.

Re: French letters of Marque based from German harbours

I am guessing here. does the abbreviation "20000 Rthlr" mean 20000 Reichsthaler?

Re: French letters of Marque based from German harbours

Sorry, I thought you meant German vessels sailing under a French letter of Marque, not French or Dutch ships in German ports. That's an entirely different thing.

Re: French letters of Marque based from German harbours

Re: US 1812 privateres in British service

Do you mean American Privteers captured and then used by the British. Or North American privateers commissioned with a British Letter of Marque e.g. from Halifax or Quebec?

It would be interesting if you could establish a link between the two, but Morgan is quite a common Welsh name so it might not be possible. However I don't consider him a pirate and I don't believe his contemporaries did either, remember that Henry Morgan was governor of Jamaica, he certainly didn't...

Should pirates have their own subforum under People as they don't really fit in any of the existing choices
