    1715 Fleet

    Hi. I am new to the site and I am looking for info on the ships and their captains of the 1715 fleet. Does anyone know when and where the ships in the fleet were built and if any of the captains survived the wreck and if so when and where they died and what happened to them after this event. Thanks. TM

    Welcome! Be careful researching it, ppl already filed claims for the wrecks, you are probably wasting your time researching it if you are planning on salvage

    "The finding of a great treasure from the days of the Spanish Main is not the cherished dream of only the United States and Florida citizens; countless peoples from other lands have shared such thoughts. It would amaze and surprise most citizens of this country, when their dream, at the greatest of costs, was realized, the agents of respective governments would, on the most flimsy grounds, lay claim to the treasure."

    What Aquanut said...

    Yes some "Captains" and owners survived.

    The ships and life after the disaster is slightly deeper research than most of the common knowledge.

    Gross Music here on Tnet has some good posts about life after the disaster for some.

    Best of luck.

    Or genealogy?
    Seems OP is more interested in the individuals and areas they may have settled.

    Get the book "Florida's Golden Galleons" by Robert Burgess and Carl Claussen. It has everything you want to know about the 1715 fleet.

    I detect the history: I've visited archives up & down the entire US East Coast, Bahamas, Jamaica, Kew, The Hague, etc. Have yet to go to Seville or S.American archives.

    Genealogy is probably easier to look up now since I wrote my Treasure Galleons book. I'm amazed each year how much more is available online. Problem is, most is in Spanish, so that will make it harder if you don't speak Spanish (I don't, though I've learned to read it pretty well by now).

    Somewhere on tnet I think is a list of passengers from Ubilla's ship(s). I recall at least one or two of the marquis' sons were aboard, but I don't know their fate. I do know the fate of Echeverz & three of his sons in later years. Definitely had a rough time in the years just after the wrecks. Someone here on tnet I think told me that one of his descendants lived on the Treasure Coast years ago, but I can't recall any details.

    Are there still 4-5 ships out of 11 that haven’t been claimed so far? I was just watching Josh Gates again(I know I know) and it seemed a few of the wrecks hadn’t been validated yet? Perhaps the ones which weren’t AS loaded down got pushed further in the direction the storm was going before they broke up? I got to watch Gary Drayton go magnet fishing too so there’s that....but no treasure is worth losing my life over by getting attacked by an alligator....and,the hoops these salvage operations have to go through are just unreal sometimes. Trying to backtrace ship locations through handed down family history might work...but who knows how many skimmers have been out to these things and taken treasure before they were even documented? So many questions....and such a big ocean. It’s inconceivable that the Spanish had collected that much treasure,and that these Central American cultures even had it in the first place to take,if that’s indeed where it really came from. Fascinating....
