Giveaway: Win the Kikkerland Kit

To win the fabulous Kikkerland Kit, be the first member to post a comment with the correct answers to the following question:

The famous pirate who plundered Brazil and the Carribean (among other places) once sailed into the large harbour of Trepassey, Newfoundland, black flags flying, instantly taking control of nearly two dozen ships. However, he had already raided another Newfoundland harbour during his voyage, capturing about a dozen vessels. That particular colony, about 80 years earlier, had been awarded to a former buccaneer, along with an appointment as the Governor of Newfoundland, in appreciation of his services to the English crown.

Who was the pirate, who was the buccaneer turned governor, and what was the name of the town or colony?

After 10 minutes, we have a winner with jthoop . The correct answers were Bartholomew Roberts (aka "Black Bart"), David Kirke, and the Colony of Avalon at Ferryland. Sources:

Stay tuned for the grand finale tomorrow, when you'll have four (yes, four!) opportunities to win fantastic prizes from Levenger and DavidCo.
