Biographical synthesis

Vallintine Buggs (alt. Valentine) (b. ca. 1621; d. ?). Mariner.

A foremastman and one of the company of the ship the Loyalty (Master: John Durson).

Resident in 1653 in Wapping.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Thirty-two year old Vallintine Buggs deposed on November 24th 1653 in the High Courtof Admiralty. He was examined on interrogatories "On behalf of ffrancis Heath concerning the losse of the shipp called the Loyalty wherof one John Durson was master and the goods in her".[1]

The case concerned the voyage of the ship the Loyalty to the East Indies. The ship arrived safely in the Esat Indies and traded its outward goods from place to place, eventually heading from Ballasore towards Persia. En route the ship stopped at an Island named by Buggs as "Niccomber" to take on freshwater and "2 mariners or officers of the sayd shipp videlicet the masters mate and the coxen were there seized on and carryed away by the heathens inhabitants of that island so as they returned not againe to the sayd shipp". Due to adverse winds they abadnoned their voyage to Persia and headed back to Ballasore.[2]
