BURIED TREASURE Roy found some of his family history revealed in our recent pirates feature


Thanks for producing such a fine article on piracy (The Big Story, Pirates, February 2015. I am most likely descended from a pirate, or at least a slave ship master mariner – James Vaughan (circa the late-1700s). A DNA test has shown I have many DNA links to folk in the West Indies and one or two in Benin and the Cameroons. A brief mention of the ship, the Ranger may prove to be a vital link for me as James Vaughan was master of a gun sloop called Ranger at one point, and is mentioned in a special survey of that trade and its ships and ship masters. In the survey, Vaughan appears as master of several slave ships from 1799 and 1800 but, unfortunately, the survey did not provide first names of the masters so I can not be absolutely positive that he is the ‘James’ Vaughan.
