The Prize.

Many a young man went to sea to seek his fortune and adventure, and at the time of war he would find both. The adventure was a battle between ships and riches would come from the capturing of the enemies ship, the “Prize.” The prize ( ship ) would be taken to port and sold and the money was divided among the crew. The amount one received would depend on how much the prize and it’s cargo sold for, and where one stood in the ranks, the higher you were in the ranks the more prize money one would get. Prize money was a reward to the crew for valor, danger and victory.

The prize laws are hard to understand some times they worked in your favor other times it worked against you. My general understanding of the prize law is that you had to be on the ship at the time of the capture of the prize. Even though you may have been on the ships roll and for some unfortunate reason you found yourself on land at the time of the capturing of the prize you got nothing. Then there were the ones that were on board at the time of the capture but for some oversight was never paid, for them they would have to put in a petition to Naval Affairs, and even though it was found in your favor, it may take years to get paid. Even though you were entitled to prize money there was a time limit on how long you could claim your prize money. There was this one case were this one person waited twenty-five years before claiming his prize money, of course the time limit was long over, and he got nothing.

Note. The following information is on the prize, there is no order to the information, it’s put down as the information is found.

Weston Jenkins is from Falmouth, Barnstable county, Massachusetts, was the Captain of the Sloop Two Friends, in October 1815, took the prize Retaliation, under the command of William J. Potter.

A claim was put in on the behalf of Edward Moore, who was kill in Sept. 1814, in the battle on Lake Champlain, his heirs would receive the prize money.

Andrew Nelson, was a seaman, was station on the Saratoga, was killed in the battle of lake Champlain on Sept. 11, 1814, his heirs would receive the prize money.

Lieutenant John M. Gamble, was station to the Essex, and was given the command of the prize Greenwich, and with this ship took the prize Seringapatam.

Anges O. Frazer was captain of the Louisiana, First Lieutenant Philip A. Bush and Second Lieutenant George Smith was on board their prize was the Ardent, taken on May 29, 1811.

Richard Bland Randolph, entered the naval service on May 1, 1800, and was station to the Insurgente as a Midshipman, and was in service till September 1800,when he became sick and was put on shore. Was not on the naval books for twenty months, in that time he assisted in the taken of eighteen prizes and was severly wound a couple times. He was never paid any prize money nor given a pension. It was found that on March 19, 1824, he was paid seventy-six dollars for four months back wages.

Joseph G. Roberts was a surgeon, and station with the squadron at Lake Erie. While in port some of the men became sick and a hospital was put on shore. The battle of Lake Erie took place on September 10, 1813, While the battle took place, Roberts was doing his duties at the hospital. After the battle the wound of both sides were taken to the hospital. Roberts asked for his part of the prize money, but as he was on shore and not on board a ship at the time of the battle, he wasn’t entitled to any prize money.
