Williams ship, The Thrifty.

William Pratton was a merchant in later 1600s - early 1700s England. He took a sttrong moral stance against slavery, whcih ultimatly stopped him from becoming very wealthy. He traded mostly in Timber,tobacco and tea. Most of his earnings went to the head of his trading company and so he did not make as much as average merchants would have.

William only had one encounter with pirates this was when he was robbed by Blackbeard whilst taking a considerable amount of tea to Port Royal, he and his crews lives where spared when he promised to give up the cargo without a fight if the pirates would leave the ship and crew alive.

William retired at the age of 65 and lived peacefully in Liverpool for the rest of his life.

William Pratton is the father of Simon Pratton.
