Name Origin:
Like all great legends the facts are in dispute. Batchelors Delight is named for one of the most notorious and important pirate ships in history. Captained by the infamous buccaneers Davis, Wafer and Hingson, who won the ship in a card game. After years of pirating in the Caribbean, the trio were set on retiring in Virginia. They were arrested near Hampton Roads and spent nearly three years in prison. They were able to negotiate their freedom by giving up a large portion of their booty, which King William used for the “Charitable Purpose” of founding the College of William and Mary.
