Blackbeard face pot produced by Kevin Francis Ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent, England, circa 2006. Edward Teach (1680 - 1718), better known as Blackbeard, was an English pirate who operated around the West Indies and the eastern coast of Britain's North American colonies. He may have been a sailor on privateer ships during Queen Anne's War before he settled on the Bahamian island of New Providence, a base for Captain Benjamin Hornigold, whose crew Teach joined around 1716. Hornigold placed him in command of a sloop that he had captured, and the two engaged in numerous acts of piracy. One of Blackbeard's famous quotes, "Only the devil and I know the whereabouts of my treasure, and the one of us who lives the longest should take it all.", boasts of how well he has hidden his vast wealth, which remains hidden and undiscovered to this day.
