Cocos, Treasure Island
There may be millions of treasures buried in the Pacific Cocos Island. This small unmanned tropical island is located off the coast of South America, about 400 miles from Costa Rica. A simple rock conical of rocks covered with a dense jungle containing toxic snakes and insects. So far, Cocos has been used as a base to replenish and hide the loot that had been looted by Pirates. These nine Square Mile Island were a magnet of a treasure hunter. Many searched only for dying empty -handed. Some treasures are from the Portuguese Baccaneer Benito Bonita in “The Bloody Sword”, which was active in the early 19th century. His purchase is estimated to be $ 300 million at today’s price. Captain Benet Graham, another pirate, hid 350 tons of gold from a Spanish ship there.
The earliest pirates to use Cocos as a safe shelter were Captain Edward Davis and British, known as “gentleman” pirates. He was known for the Pacific Ocean and harassed the Spanish merchants in the Nankai, so he obtained a useful career from 1683 to 1702 with the approval of the royal family. We have a complete explanation from a book written from a book written on the venue ven.
Another pirate who filled the treasure using the island is a captainer solo complex that captures the Spanish ship, Lasantiimatrinidad (the most blessed), and her huge amount of money and 8. I caught a person’s chest. Again, we have a complete story written by Bazil Ringos, one of the pirates. Dampier sailed sharply, but hated Captain’s murderous attitude. It is said that this treasure had never been collected by pirates.
However, the biggest treasure hidden in Cocos is a wonderful wealth evacuated from Peru Lima in 1821. Gold, silver, jewelry, church treasure huge collection: A gold statue of a golden life -sized person of the Virgin Mary with a height of 7 feet, a gold statue covered with a weight of £ 780 pounds. In addition, hundreds of jewelry, gold plates, jewelry boxes, built coins. With the revolution in the early 19th century, Lima’s treasures could no longer stay in Lima as Jose de Sun Martin’s rebels approached. The wealthy residents and priests began to escape with treasures by bringing them away by BRI of the captain of the ship lying in the port.
Lima’s deputy king, Jose de La Selna, outsource Lima’s treasure to William Thompson, a British merchant ship captain in Karao Port near Lima in August 1821. The dear wealth may have been carrying the unprecedented wealth on a single ship, but it was estimated that it was worthwhile for 30 to 30 million pounds.
Thompson’s order was to stay in the sea until he could safely return to Lima. As soon as the ship disappeared, he and his British crew killed Spanish citizens and priests and threw their bodies out of the ship. Thompson’s dangerous band was planning to sail to Cocos, fill the treasure, and return when it became quiet later. Thompson later fell with Bonito, a “bloody sword.” However, he had never lived to enjoy their looted goods. British frigate ships have defeated them. Bonito blew away his brain after seeing everything lost. The other pirates were caught while searching for the store, all of which were squeezed by the Navy Frigate ship Yardalum, except for Thompson and his first colleagues.
Thompson and his friends promised to recover the treasure. When they returned to the island, they managed to escape to the jungle. For three days, the frigate crew hunted for them, but had no choice but to sail. A few months later, the fugitive was picked up by a pass holler. The first companion died on board, and at the end of the voyage, Thompson was placed on land in the United States, and the whaling ship crew knew nothing about the treasure.
Thompson became an old man before he took over the secret, before traveling to John Keating, the owner of the New Fandland. The keying agreed to take Thompson to Cocos, but before they were scheduled to be sails, Thompson died, drawing a map that gave the place to find the treasure to a explicit instruction
In 1841, Keating and his colleagues William Borg went to Cocos and found a cave where the treasure was hidden. They decided not to tell the crew, but when they were excited, the crew became suspicious. They continued to put key tea and Borg while looking for themselves. In the middle of the night, the keying and Borg fled, stolen the track on the boat, returned to the cave, and packed jewels in their pockets. After leaving the island, their boats were overturned with surf. Borg was transported to the bottom by the weight of his inflated pocket. The key clinging was clinging to the fallen boat, and a few days later, it was finally rescued by a Spanish scf.
