George Samuel, age abt 18, along with several more "Jacobite prisoners," were transported from Liverpool to Leeward Islands in May 1747 on ship 'Veteran." I also have info that this ship's prisoners were liberated by a French privateer in Martinique June 1747.
George Samuel was born in Scotland, res. Edinburgh and listed as a bookbinder.
I'm looking for more information about this incident, Jacobites and were these liberated prisoners then taken to the states?
