'T KINT, THOMAS [SSNE 8380]
Thomas 't Kint was an English privateer (Sea-Beggar or Watergeuzen) who served the Prince of Orange in 1572. He embarked at Scarborough on a ship which had previously served in the Sea-Beggar fleet and, when at sea, they decided to rejoin them. They took several vessels, and 't Kint was sent back to England on one for repairs. The vessel was captured by the Spanish before they arrived and 't Kint was executed at The Hague on 18 March 1572.
