The ship was the LOYAL Jamaica. Raynor, who was previously a crew member on board the Mary of Jamaica captained by George Auston around 1690-91 was later captain of the Bachelors Delight a Dutch Caravel and subsequently of the Loyal Jamaica when he took the ship with a crew and passengers to Charleston. Raynor, who was a lawfully commissioned privateer, lived in Jamaica but he and others chose to relocate to the mainland of Carolina. They arrived April 1692 and pulled into harbor at Mount Pleasant. The authorities of Charleston, fearing they were pirates told them to leave the area. The ship pulled out of Mount Pleasant but was found later to have run aground at Sewee Bay and the passengers and crew had scattered within the vicinity. Captain George Raynor settled in the area and was a wealthy merchant seaman and planter of Carolina.
