1715 fleet wrecks had been salvaged by the Spanish and were also “fished” by others when the opportunity arose.  One such occasion apparently involved a party from the British 60th Regiment (The Green Howards), who were stationed at St. Augustine during the time of the American Revolution.  The remains of the cream ware were found scattered among the British encampment fire pit and dates from their time..
