Woodes Rogers was originally a merchant, but in 1708 fellow Bristol merchants, whose ships were being targeted by other pirates, sponsored a retaliatory global expedition and chose Rogers to be in charge of it, with William Dampier as his navigator. Under a letter of marque Rogers set sail in charge of the 350-ton Duke, (it had 36 guns) and the 260-ton Duchess (it also had 36 guns) and 333 men. Rogers described his crews as "tinkers, taylors, hay-makers, pedlers, fidlers etc, one negro and about ten boys." His mission was to harass Spanish shipping, but to the English he was a loyal citizen, but to the Spanish he was a pirate. Woodes Rogers took the weird strategy of harassing the Spanish on the Pacific Coast of the Americas where they would feel more secure from the English.
