Semual Bellamy

Samuel Bellamy “Black Sam/ Prince of Pirates”(b.1689 d.1717)

Bio​
Captain Samuel Bellamy (c. February 23, 1689 – April 26, 1717), later known as "Black Sam" Bellamy. He was known as the most wealthiest(Equiv. US$139.6 million in 2018) pirate known in recorded history. He and his crew captured at least 53 ships. 

Sam ran his pirate operation democratically. His men were slaves, Native Americans, and sailors pressed into service. Black Sam treated them equally and let them vote on important decisions.

He was known as "Black Sam", because he ignored the fashion for powdered wigs and wore his black hair tied  back with a black satin bow. Unlike the stereotype pirate character, Sam had good manners, dressed in fancy clothes, and he always wore four ornate dueling pistols in his sash.

Bellamy originally part of Benjamin Hornigold and Edward Teach’s (Blackbeard’s) crew aboard the Mary Anne, Bellamy rose to captain and soon gained fortune when he captured the ship Whydah Gally, a gigantic slave ship carrying riches on its second leg in the Atlantic. The Whydah was refitted as a flagship with 28 cannons, and was capable of attacking any man-of-war ship in the Americas, because of its advanced weapons system.  Bellamy attempted to sail the ship back to his lover Maria Hallett that he left in New England but never made it, sinking off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts during a violent storm. Sam was only 28 years of age.

Ancestral Relationship
Sam and I are connected by a common ancestor Thomas Paine(b. 1626 d.1706) and Mary Snow(b. 1630 d. 1704) who are my 8th great parents, and Sam's grand parents.
