On that same ship traveling as passengers were a boy named John King and his mother. It is difficult to say how old John was, but probably no older than eleven and possibly as young as eight. Why he and his mother were traveling is not included in the record. What is clearly documented, however, is that John wanted to be a pirate. John demanded to be allowed to join the crew of the Marianne. In fact, if he wasn't allowed to, he threatened to hurt himself according to a deposition made from the captain of the Bonetta
That's jsut wonderful.
