Alphabetical Roll of the Officers and Men of the Frigate Alliance (Oct 1779)

Alphabetical Roll of the Officers and Men of the Frigate Alliance (Oct 1779). The Alphabetical Roll of the Officers and Crew of the Frigate Alliance, Captain Peter Landais, October 3d, 1779 is derived from the list of 214 men that appears on pages 146-148 of the Life and character of the Chevalier John Paul Jones authored by John Henry Sherburne (1825). Sherburne does not reference the repository of this roll. This roll was taken on the day after the frigate Alliance sailed into Texel, the deepwater port of Amsterdam, in company with the crippled Serapis under the command of John Paul Jones. The Serapis was captured just ten days prior in a celebrated but bloody engagement with the Bonhomme Richard. Shortly after this roll was taken, Landais was relieved of his command by Jones who took the Alliance as his own vessel until his return to France. The list has been annotated to include position on the ship if known and offers alternate spellings of names (in parenthesis) to assist internet browsing.
