English Captain: Edward Hall

Edward Hall served the Parliamentarian and Commonwealth navies. From 1644 to 1646, he commanded the Antelope (34 guns). In 1648, he again commanded the Antelope, until the ship went over to the Royalists with Prince Rupert. In 1649, he commanded the Adventure (36 guns) and Triumph (62 guns). In 1650, he commanded the Liberty (ex-Charles) (44 guns), until she was wrecked. In 1651, he commanded the Triumph. In 1652, he commanded the Andrew. The Andrew had a crew of 280 men in early 1652. Michael Baumber says that Edward Hall was "pensioned off" in 1652. Sources:
