Edward Low

Edward "Ned" Low was a notorious pirate of English origin, in the early 18th century.

Low captained a number of ships, usually maintaining a small fleet of three or four. His crews captured at least a hundred ships during their tenure, burning most of them. Recounted as being one of the most vicious pirates of the Golden Age of Piracy with a reputation to match his ruthlessness.

The circumstances of Low's "death" which took place around 1724, has been the subject of much speculation, and there have many recorded sightings long after his ship was apparently lost at sea.
