Captain Benjamin Godfrey died of fever whilst the Duke of Richmond was sailing
near Batavia. Thomas Hindman took over the command. According to HEIC
records, the Duke of Richmond was on service at the time "to seize pirates, in the
South China Seas" Godfrey is a grandfather to me in my maternal line. I have copy of his log, previous to his death and of Hindman's with reference to Godfrey's death afterwards.
