Mark Hildreth

"In order to effect a timely halt to deteriorating conditions, and to ensure the common good, a state of emergency is declared for these territories, by decree of Lord Cutler Beckett, duly appointed representative of His Majesty, the King."

This man was an officer in the British Royal Navy and served in the capacity of a cryer with the East India Trading Company.

Biography Edit

Nothing is known about the Cryer's early life, except that he was an English man who joined the East India Trading Company Armada at an unknown point. He became an officer, and was stationed at Fort Charles in Port Royal.

The Cryer read the decrees set forth by Lord Cutler Beckett, stating that all rights and grants in legal nature would be suspended, and those accused of piracy, or assisting or associating with pirates would be sentenced to be hung by the neck until dead. At the time of those accused of affiliated piracy facing execution, a song had been started by the cabin boy, and all of the captives had started to sing Hoist the Colours while the Cryer and other surrounding East India Company officials bore witness.[2]

The Cryer's further fate is unknown.
