520    Long before Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, and Black Bart 
       terrorized the Caribbean, the seas around the British 
       Isles swarmed with pirates. Thousands of men turned to 
       piracy at sea, often as a makeshift strategy of survival. 
       Although the young Francis Drake became the most famous 
       pirate of the period, scores of little-known pirate 
       leaders operated during this time, acquiring mixed 
       reputations on land and at sea. Captain Henry Strangeways 
       earned notoriety for his attacks on French shipping in the
       English Channel and the Irish Sea, selling booty ashore in
       southwest England and Wales. John Callice and his 
       associates sailed in consort with others, including 
       another arch-pirate Robert Hicks, plundering French, 
       Spanish, Danish, and Scottish shipping, in voyages that 
       ranged from Scotland to Spain. The first British pirates 
       led erratic careers, but their roving in local waters 
       paved the way for the more aggressive and ambitious deep-
       sea piracy in the Caribbean.
