Rather unhelpfully I remember looking for this a while ago - other than consistent mentions of it being the first ship to fly the "Jolly Rodger", no sources anywhere seem to state the name. good luck in finding it out, and if you do, be sure to let me know!  :pir-classic:

FYI, I am no expert on pirates.
Perhaps the ship's name was "The Jolly Roger", and that is how the flag got it's name. :sceptic:

Thanks i found this,
"On 18 July 1700, so the official British Admiralty reports, Captain John Cranby discovered his frigate HMS Poole (built) 1696 of Nye in East Cowes, 32 guns
Wynnes ship Adventure when the Cape Verde Island of Brava. For several days, but Wynne escaped pirates, other than two Pirate ships (La Foudre Lussan and treasure under Moore), his support appeared [2] followed Cranby. Cranby's report is, as far as known, the first mention of a flag with the skull and crossed bones on a pirate ship: "a black flag with crossed bones, a skull and an hourglass" ("a sable ensign with cross bones, a death's head, and an hour glass").
very little online about this man,strange.

Glad you found out the answer! Adventure... a fitting name for a pirate ship!
