CREW MUSTER FOR THE THREE-MASTER FLYING DUTCHMAN TURNED TO FREEBOOTING
DECEMBER 25 OF THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1724
"My music is a requiem". Sean 'O'Leary from Dublin dreamed of becoming a harpsichordist, but was hounded from the country after throwing three guests through a window for having suggested that his Vivaldi
was perhaps slightly fast. He joined the 3rd Highlanders and lost a hand at the siege of Gibraltar.
He deserted and studied the accordion under Sancho Fernandez, the mad armourer. Hiding out in the Leeward Islands, he did many lowly jobs. He was almost lynched during the red night and sought refuge with One Eyed Jack. He became one of his lieutenants after the Cao Bang massacre.
Oct 1712. Musician.
