William Kidd

Active selection:    
William Kidd.  Was the famous Scottish pirate-captain, William Kidd (1650-1701), ever a Red Sea Rover?  No one knows.  Originally Kidd, a clergyman's son, was sent to the Indian Ocean in 1696 with a privateer's commission to seize pirates or enemy vessels there.  His crew are supposed to have persuaded him to join the Madagascan pirates.  Original artwork for illustration on p28 of Look and Learn issue no 165 (13 March 1965).  Lent for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.
