Daniel Stillwell was an active Caribbean pirate from 1715-1718. He married Jonathan Darvill’s daughter and used his sloop, the Happy Return, for sailing missions. When Stillwell captured a Spanish ship, Nassau’s Deputy Governor Thomas Walker heard about it, since Spain and England had recently signed an armistice treaty and promptly took possession of it as part of his “peace treaty appropriations”.
