If a ship deployed Mates, they weer classed “numerically” (1st, 2nd and so forth). On a Pirate vessel, a Mate was usually Apprenticed to a Quartermaster, Master Gunner or other Ship Officer. Even The Captain employed a Mate to care for his clothing, food and weapons. They were well cared for and often disliked by the Crew.
