Born in Southwest England in 1420, Aleyn raided English shipping in The English Channel. He worked with the likes of William Kidd (and others). Oddly, England did not interfere with his operations (as Aleyn liked to attack corrupt Merchants and Commerce Tax evaders). They felt he was doing them a “needed service”. In the 1450s, he quit his command and joined in with Captain Kidd. Nothing more is known of his fate from that point forward.
