  • 1. Captain Popcastle by Ford, Sylvia
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    Legend says that Captain John Popcastle, a pirate wanted by the British, still lurked along the banks of Brien Creek every two hundred years. He returns to his tavern along the creek banks in Craven County to search for his lost treasure. Popcastle purchased the property in 1735 and proceeded to open Popcastle Inn, an inn, tavern, and gambling destination. A young, distressed woman arrived at his doorstep one day and the captain became instantly enamored. He offered her everything, including his name, but in return all she brought were the King's men, for she was a British Spy that turned him over to the King.
