|Covid-19|HMS Scarborough (1711) Wikipedia
HMS Scarborough was a 32 gun fifth-rate ship built at the Sheerness Dockyard and launched by the Royal Navy in 1711. In 1720, she was rebuilt at the Deptford Dockyard as a sixth-rate 20 gun ship. She was finally sold to Deptford Dockyard in 1739. Records of the time also indicate the Scarborough was in the vicinity of Blackbeard the pirate and his crew in February of 1717 near Nevis. The deposition of Henry Bostock recounts that the pirates "had met the Man of Warr on this station, but said they had no business with her, but if she had chased them they would have kept their Way."
