Description: This work was transcribed from records of the British Admiralty pertaining to American prisoners of war held at Bermuda, Cape of Good Hope and Jamaica during the War of 1812. Those interned included American marines, merchantmen and sailors. Information is grouped by location: Bermuda lists 2,875 prisoners; Cape of Good Hope lists 296 prisoners; and Jamaica lists 1,553 prisoners. An alphabetical listing of names, a numeric listing by prison number, a crew listing by ship, a list of Americans on British ships, a list for prisoners whose service affiliation is not known, and a list of United States Marines is included for each location. Crews of United States naval vessels incarcerated at Bermuda include the frigate USS President, Gunboat 160, schooner USS Asp and the sloops USS Viper and USS Wasp. Naval personnel imprisoned at Jamaica were from the sloop USS Vixen. Cape of Good Hope had the crew from the brig USS Syren. Mr. Baker is a lineal descendant of a veteran of the War of 1812 and past president of the Society of the War of 1812 in the State of Ohio (1996-1999).
