Basil Ringrose The Surgeon
Basil Ringrose was a English buccaneer and surgeon. Ringrose wrote the rare account which was added as a fourth part of The Buccaneers of America in the second English edition. It can be found bound with the first three parts but scarcely as a separate book. Entitled “The South Seas Waggoner”.
Ringrose wrote about his adventures with Bartholomew Sharp’s expedition across the Isthmus of Panama in 1680-1682. He drew numerous charts and views during these ventures. This account also provides us with a description of daily activities by the buccaneers.
Ringrose was killed during an attack on the city Santiago against the Spanish in Mexico
