Henry Every

Henry Every served in the Royal Navy on the privateer Charles. He and his crew seized the Charles in 1694 and renamed it "Fancy". He went on to seize such spectacular treasures in the Red Sea in 1695 that word of his success made him a hero to the unemployed seaman and poor people in England and the colonies. Henry Every with Thomas Tew was one of the first pirates to operate in the Indian Ocean. He was one of the very few major captains to have retired with his treasures without being arrested or killed. He is thought to have died a poor man in England.
