NARBONNE, Charles Henry, buccaneer, born in Canada about 1627; died in Tortugas, Wisconsin, in 1681. He was the son of a French officer and an Indian woman, and took the name of his father's native city. He began life as a soldier in Canada, but went about 1660 to Tortugas, and afterward became famous for his daring exploits as a buccaneer. Either alone or in association with other buccaneers, he ravaged the coast of Santo Domingo, the Bay of Honduras, and the Gulf of Uraba, and, joining Sir Henry Morgan in 1670, took part in the expedition against Panama. He was detached to secure provisions for the invaders, and stormed Carthagena, captured Santa Catalina island, and, rejoining Morgan on Chagres river, headed the attack against Fort San Lorenzo. He undertook afterward expeditions against Maracaibo and San Antonio de Gibraltar, and, having amassed a large fortune, settled in Tortugas, becoming in 1677 deputy-lieutenant of the king, which post he held till his death.
