Edward Low

Ned Low, a former Boston ship rigger, was born in London, England near the end of the 17th century. He traveled at sea with his brother, and eventually wound up in alone in Boston. From there, he took to sea again. It was then that his piracy began. He operated mainly along the New England coast and in the West Indies, though he was well-known of many other places too for his ravages.

Of the ships that he captured, he would often give command to one of his crew. His crews were constantly increased by sailors who were forced to join when their ships were captured. He is known to have often tortured his prisoners before killing them. His crew eventually got fed up with him in 1724, and sent him adrift in a small boat with no provisions. He was rescued by a French ship which took him to the island of Martinique where Low was recognized and executed.
