The Caribbean, a Place of Legends, Adventures and History!

Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island is an adventure story of pirates. It has become one of the most retold stories in history. And this tale of Treasure Island was real! On November 13, 1750, fifty chests of treasure that had been stolen from a Spanish galleon at Ocracoke Inlet, North Carolina, were buried on a deserted island in the Caribbean. And because of Stevenson’s family ties to the Caribbean, he had to have known about it!

In late August of 1750, the Spanish galleon, Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, was driven by a hurricane from her intended course of returning to Spain to the desolate shores of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Shattered and unable to sail, she was towed into Ocracoke Inlet in order to save her million dollar cargo. Owen Lloyd and his one-legged brother, John, two merchant captains from Hampton Roads, Virginia, whose own vessel had been driven to Ocracoke, formed a conspiracy and stole the silver from the galleon. Owen Lloyd sailed away with fifty-five chests of pieces of eight and buried his treasure on Norman Island in the British Virgin Islands
