Sir Nicholas Lawes was Governor of Jamaica from 1718 to 1722. He was a Lucian. In his capacity as Governor during the Golden Age of Piracy he tried many pirates, among them "Calico Jack" Rackham, Mary Read, and most importantly the Madrigal Anne Bonny. He may have been searching for the Madrigal Clue, Mace. Fortunately, he never found the Clue.
