List of Officers and Men of the ship Ariel (Sept 1780)

List of Officers and Men of the ship Ariel (Sept 1780). The List of Officers & Men belonging to the Ship of War Ariel, Commanded by the Honorable John Paul Jones, Esq 23 September 1780 located in Box XII of the Benjamin Franklin Papers at the University of Pennsylvania was transcribed by Joseph Ross in 2011. This list of 118 men closely parallels the undated List of Officers & Men belonging to the American Continental Ship of War Ariel, Commanded by the Honorable John Paul Jones, Esq published in The logs of the Serapis- Alliance- Ariel edited by John Sanford Barnes (1911) with subtle differences. Included in Box XII of the Franklin Papers are two other lists associated with the ship Ariel: an undated list of 72 French volunteers and another undated List of Officers & Men belonging to the Ship of War Ariel which includes substantial changes in the crew of the 23 September 1780 list, 37 French volunteers and ten “Gentleman Passengers.” An Alphabetical List of Officers and Men of the Ship Ariel (1780) derived from this list will be located shortly on this website and will offer alternate spellings of names (in parenthesis) to assist internet browsing.
