Robert Worley

In September of 1718, Richard Worley and a group of 8 others set out in a ship that was barely seaworthy from New York down the coast and up the Delaware River. Soon, the crew's size had increased to 12 and later to 25. They had taken on and transferred to a much nicer ship.

Worley and his crew were captured when they mistook 2 ships as merchants. After receiving a tip to Worley's whereabouts, the Governor of North Carolina had sent the 2 ships out to trap him. Fighting to the end, all of the crew died except Worley and one other member. Both were hanged the very next day, February 17, 1719.
