Lewis Scot

Background

Lewis Scot (?? - ??) was a British buccaneer who was the first Englishman to begin the practice of raiding and plundering the Spanish coastal settlements in the West Indies. According to Alexander Exquemelin who wrote about Scot in his book De Americasche Zee Roovers (1678) his career was not that long. One of his most famous exploits were raids on the city of Campeche where he ransomed the city back to the Spanish.
