November 1692

Nov. 3.
James City.
1,291. Gov. Sir E. Andros to the Earl of Nottingham. Same as Cal. 1692, No. 2600. 3 pp. [Colonial Papers, Vol. LXVI., No. 109.]
Nov. 10.
1,292. Governor Sir William Beeston to (?). I came hither about the end of last week and hoped to have given your Lordship a more particular account than I can do yet. I found the Falcon and the two storeships for Jamaica here and ready to sail, only the Falcon's men were not paid, but will be in a day or two. Sir Francis Wheeler's squadron are also all ready except paying the men, but the fireships and some others being not yet come round from the river, there is no prospect when we shall sail. I have been urging Sir F. Wheeler, since it may be reasonably thought that the intention of H.M. in ordering this strength for the West Indies is to weaken if not wholly to root out the enemy in those parts, to call at Cayou, a settlement of the French on the main about 90 leagues to windward of Barbadoes. Signed, Wm. Beeston. 1 p. [Colonial Papers, Vol. LXVI., No. 110.]
