The crew of the Charming Sally after their capture were held at Mill Prison, Plymouth, England. For a full listing (including Joseph Frederick) see

The prisoners of 1776; a relic of the revolution, pages 253-254

My 5th great grandfather was on board when she was captured by the Nonsuch. Looking for other descendants of crewmembers to connect with. His name was Joseph Frederec and sometimes was spelled Frederik.
