    About Alexandre Olivier Exquemelin


    1. Alexandre Olivier Exquemelin also spelled Esquemeling, Exquemeling, or Oexmelin was a French writer best known as the author of one of the most important sourcebooks of 17th century piracy, first published in Dutch as De Americaensche Zee Roovers, in Amsterdam, by Jan ten Hoorn, in 1678.Born about 1645, it is likely that Exquemelin was a native of Harfleur, France, who on his return from buccaneering settled in Holland, possibly because he was a Huguenot In 1666 he was engaged by the French West India Company and went to Tortuga, where he stayed for three years There he enlisted with the buccaneers, in particular with the band of Henry Morgan, whose confidante he was, probably as a barber surgeon, and remained with them until 1674 Shortly afterwards he returned to Europe and settled in Amsterdam where he qualified professionally as a surgeon, his name appearing on the 1679 register of the Dutch Surgeons Guild However, he was later once again in the Caribbean as his name appears on the muster roll as a surgeon in the attack on Cartagena in 1697 Source
