Dear Ken Pestell,

I would be very interested in seeing what information you have about William Pestell. I am researching the Falcon flyboat at the moment and there is some interaction with Pestell.

Thank you!

Larry

I was researching the frigate he commissioned to sail on Loch Ness. Any stories around that boat?

I have been researching Capt.William Pestell for some years and have a fair amount of info on his career from his birth c.1606 to his death in action in 1664 in the attack on the Dutch fort at Goree, off Senegal. I would be pleased to share info with others with genuine interest.
